The Racist Test

There was much controversy this week about a skit on the new (old) Hey Hey It’s Saturday, in which Indian men put on blackface and imitated the Jackson 5.

Was it racist? Was it not racist? Was it racist, but not very, because we are embarrassed about the recent treatment of Indians in Australia?  Or was it simply stupid, as Andrew Bolt suggests?

But wait – there is a simple test! Watch this video and you need never be in doubt again. (For another test see Test your (!) prejudices)

Since today is Sunday Funday, perhaps you shouldn’t take it too seriously!
