An Australian woman celebrated her birthday in true racist fashion.
A 21-year-old Australian woman held an “African” themed birthday party. The photos posted on Facebook show true ignorance, racism and insensitivity.
She also gives one hell of a “Sorry, not sorry” apology via Tumblr.
Okay don’t even know how to use tumblr but wanted to clarify this. It was my ‘African themed’ party and it was honestly made that theme because I have always wanted to go to Africa (to teach english) but haven’t made it there yet. In no way was this party intended to hurt anyones feelings or upset anyone at all. In fact as you can tell from the photos I dressed up as cleopatra, whilst MAJORITY of my guests came as animals, that can be found in africa or wore traditional african clothes or even dressed up as famous people who come from africa.
Because nothing says “traditional African clothes” quite like the KKK.
She goes on to explain how wearing black face is fine because many people who wear a Dirndl are not German.
However, some guest did decide to paint themselves, although this was in no way my intention or encouraged in the slightest. …People wear oktoberfest cotumes to parties and no one cracks it that they are not German? So what I am saying is I do understand the people who have painted themselves have offended people, although none of them intended that…. but how can people be annoyed that the majority of the people at the party were celebrating another countries culture.
And then comes the, “but I have a black friend and she wasn’t offended” type of excuse added with a bit of “but white people wouldn’t be offended if you wore white face” excuse:
Also one of my friends who is Mauritian painted himself white, but that photos didn’t make it to this page along with the MAJORITY of people who were amazingly detailed costumes that no one could take offense to!! I am sure that not one person at my party felt upset that said guest painted himself white as it was not meant in that way at all.
Her Tumblr page has been since deleted as well as her other social media profiles.
Here are some more of the photos:
