A white woman by the name of Keysha Holmes, owner of Holmes Hair Salon, is saying she “didn’t never know [blackface] was a thing” after one of her employees put on blackface for a group Michael Jackson-themed party.

The group of salon employees dressed as Michael Jackson throughout his life and career. Not a bad idea. According to photos obtained by WYFF TV, employees dressed up as zombie Thriller Mike and Bad-era Mike, as well as Jackson 5-era Michael. It’s a really cute idea, But, the woman who dressed as young MJ thought she’d really sell the costume by adding a little blackface. Or as Holmes put it to WYFF TV, “She put Covergirl brown makeup on her face.”

From there, things went as they usually do: Holmes, unaware that there was any problem whatsoever with the costume, posted videos of the employee singing in her racist costume, and folks started calling her out on it.

Which leads us to her bizarre interview with WYFF, in which Holmes pleads ignorance about the whole thing. She took down the videos from her social media accounts, but told  WYFF TV that she “slept very well last night” despite the outrage over her employee’s costume, before adding that she’ll “never paint a face again.”

“I swear, I never heard of blackface,” she said; despite ex-Today Show host Megyn Kelly, dominating the news cycle last week over claims that blackface “was OK” when she was younger.

When will they learn?

    Okay, we all agree that black face is deplorable. I do have a question – So no one can recreate Michael Jackson’s Thriller? Ever? Ever, ever? Most people who know and have heard of MJ loves his music and videos that launched a new era in music creativity. Something tells me they were just trying to be Zombies. I don’t think there was any deep thought involved. Anyway, black face is ignorant. Stop it!

  2. I am so sick of their stupid ” I am so Sorry”. They are not sorry for what they did. They are sorry they were caught. They are the dumbest race of people on the planet. What makes them think they can ever compete with other intelligent people. That is why they are so mean and angry. They know they are inferior to others.

    It’s extremely astonishing that “they are supposed” to be the most intelligent people on planet Earth and yet somehow become so dumb and stupid when it’s selfishly convenient. Absolutely absurd!!!
