White Comedian Grills BYU Students On Black History Month; Did He Take It Too Far? (VIDEO)

An interesting video has been making its way across the net over the past few days, featuring comedian Dave Ackerman (yeah, we don’t know who he is either) in blackface on the campus of Brigham Young University, asking its students what they know about Black History Month.

In the first few seconds of the 4-minute video, you may get upset witnessing his transition into the blackface makeup, but you quickly forget that when listening to the BYU students’ answers to his Black History Month questions and their general opinions on African American culture.

Although this may not have been the best approach, Ackerman’s stunt sends a resounding message of the ignorance that still exists among pockets of whitewashed American communities.

Did Ackerman take it too far? Check out the video below, and let us know what you think.

    It's Cost Me A Lot, But There's One Thing That I've Got...

    I always said that when your race controls virtually the entire world and you never need to go through minorities to receive or get anything, why the fuck would you care what they have going on? So a lot of them just dismiss it because it has no relevance to them in their white world. We can not avoid them like they can us.
