    The lyrics to Pinball Wizard can be substituted for Folsom Prison.

    -----------
    The American circuses eventually phased out minstrel shows and blackface, but that posed a threat to their profits. Taking cues from the Irish origins of western clowning, they adopted the white makeup that we know today. Still, a large part of what made minstrel shows popular was how they rationalized racism and mocked Black men. Thus, overdrawn lips, big noses, and afros were incorporated into this ďnewĒ form of clowning. Itís easy to deny this connection, if you simply think about the origins and inception of clowning, but once you actually look into the American history of clowns and minstrel shows, itís blatant.

    Harmless as it may seem, the behavior, demeanor, and appearances of clowns may still be influencing anti-Black racism today. It might be furthering the stigma against natural Afro hair, and how itís seen as unprofessional. If clowns are wearing afro-wigs to be funny, then thereís no way that isnít a reflection of American culture and society. The overdrawn lips, the big round noses, big feet, acting silly; there are so many connections to the stereotypes and stigmas surrounding Black people today. These clowns sightings might actually be doing some good, as people are starting to make the connection to racist caricatures.

    Yet another magazine that doesn't care about historical fact.

    Is there a "ho-hum" emoji?
