Daniel,Do you know what "Black Face" means? Do you know its history? Do you know how much of a disappointment your latest video blog was? I mean sure, for the average poker playing white male, its probably funny. But if you were doing it as a publicity stunt, you might as well have played russian roulette with a loaded gun. At least that way i wouldnt feel as if you made a racial AND cultural joke out of your 15 minutes of fame per month. I mean, i dont really give a damn if all the white males around the world disagree with me.....Ask Ivey how he really feels about it? Ask your any black male.....Ask Paul Darden, Ask David Williams, go to toronto and see if you can get away with that! Until now, i had nothing but the utmost respect for you.....But now.....you have disappointed me so much. Honestly, i dont think you thought about your actions....And as a poker player, I would have thought you would act differently.....So hungry to make entertainment that you'll make enemies? Was that your intentions? And Caucasian males cant say anything....I mean, lets be real.....You may have a point of view, but how valid is it in this conversation? I mean....did he disrespect you? No, did he imitate you? No.....And Daniel, Im sure you will receive lots of unwanted attention from this, and i would go so far to suggest a TV public apology. I mean....to be honest, that would be the only thing that would help me keep cool in this situation. You should have thought about it before you did it. Now, I throw you in a boat almost as deep as Kramer.....If you dont care, you'll do nothing. If you do care, I'd be suprised.

Black face is NOT FUNNY!!! So you know the history of black face??? If you are indeed Black, you should have more respect for your heritage or at least respect the OP's right to be offended. I too found it very offensive. And for the record I'M BLACK TOO!

I'd love to see DN dismiss this person's objection to black face as political correctness. THis isn't some bleeding heart liberal white dude that you can dismiss as PC.

Dave Chappelle is very...let me say strange! This is my first post so be easy on me...I feel that Daniel is a very nice person. I don't think he was being racist.

Slavery ended a long time ago, you all that are obsessed with the black vs white stuff should be ashamed of yourselves. IF there is is still black opression this is exactly the reason why. People too proud of their harritage that they are willing to demote hours of time defending useless ideologies. Put your time to good use and make the world better instead of bringing up old useless things to fight about. Black face, White face, Yellow face, who cares? Seriously, there is no superior race just inferior people. You better get over it because like I said this is the reason opression may exist today-because people can't forget the past and focus on the future. Let it go, he didn't mean anything by it.

Not irrelevant at all. It's very easy for someone of the majority race to dismiss people for "black vs white stuff". It's probably alot harder for someone who has been a victim of racism to do so.

What are you talking about? You don't think that white people are discriminated against? Get real man. Everyone can be the victim of some sort of stereo-type or racist mental/physical attacks. You can be discriminated against for the color of your skin, the way you look, how much money you make, your sex, where you live, where you came from, what you do for a living; there are tons of things people put up with that they shouldn't have to. One of the best remedies for the hate discrimination creates is to laugh at the cause or situation and accept the things you can't change and be the bigger person.

Of course he is white. White folks have been saying this for years. I am sorry, but if you are not a person of color you truly do not understand racial discrimination. I am not crying about it and I don't use it as an excuse or crutch. I understand that I have to work harder and be better than my peers in order to get the same promotions and salary and I just DO IT! That's the way it is and hey, I do what I need to do. That does NOT mean that I have closed my eyes to ****. And quite frankly if I am offended by Daniels black face then that is my right. Do I automatically label him a racist because of it -- no, not really. But I wonder just how close he really is to his so called black friends that he doesn't see how this could be offensive.By the way, I think this is an interesting topic and wish folks could discuss it without being disrespecful.

Whatever, I live in Hawaii and I lived in Guam before here. All the local people discriminate just as much as whites do. They hold things against you that you have no power over and you have to make friends with people in order to get your car fixed correctly! You should have seen how long it took me to get a PS3 because they would get shipments in at best buy and they would tell all the white guys that they were out. I had to get one of my local friends to go down and get me one. Discrimintation is everywhere and it happens to everyone-not just for people of color..

I can't tell if this post is ironic or not. Are you seriously comparing the racial discrimination blacks have faced through out this country's history with having to wait a long time for a psp? Are you really? The backlash of a marginalize and colonized people with the discrimination of black people? I'm.. just stunned, absolutely stunned tht you're so insensitive to racism that you'd compare waiting a long time for a psp with the plight of african-americans in this country. You're naivety and ignorance shock and disgust me. There are people in this country who's brothers, sisters, mothers fathers, husbands and wives were lynched, for the color of their skin. There are people, still alive, who had to drink at separate drinking fountains, attend separate schools, and were denied the right to vote. THis isn't something in our ancient history. I'm done talking with you on this subject, your idiocy is too much for words...If your post was ironic, well, you got me, hook line and sinker.

Well thousands maybe even millions of women were lynched and crucified but they have to get over the "track down witches and destroy them thing". I'm not insensitive to discrimination or any race, i'm insensitive to people putting so much energy in keeping discrimination alive (including whites). Of course it will always exist and yes it will cause people to act certain ways but what is the point of living in the past and holding grudges for your ancestors? That would be like me being pissed off because Jesus was crucified and hating the nationality that killed him. Either way man discrimination sucks but why wine about it? People are going to be racist and some are going to think so lightly of it that they will poke fun at it. Just because people don't like it doesn't make the poking "Not Right". It may be politically incorrect but who cares, he ain't running for office. This country is all about free speach, so if Daniel wants to do skits and say off the wall stuff-he can. If you don't like it then don't comment. And my post wasn't ironic, it was metaphorically forward. The way I am discriminated against here is no where near the way black people were discriminated against, but it is the same principle.
