Big Victory Announced For Catholic School Students Wrongfully Accused Of Wearing ‘Blackface’

In today’s perpetually offended Western culture, few acts are considered more egregious than a White person wearing so-called “blackface.”

But in many cases, such allegations are based either on a purposeful misinterpretation of a person’s intent or an unintentional misunderstanding. It’s unclear which was at play in a case involving two teens kicked out of a California Catholic school, but a recent update confirmed that they have each been awarded financial compensation as a result of the experience.

According to the New York Post:

The then-students at Saint Francis High School in Mountain View were just 14 when they took a photo during a sleepover in 2017 of them wearing the treatment in solidarity with a friend suffering from severe acne, their lawsuit said.

The treatment, bought by one of the boy’s moms, was light green when applied and turned dark green once dry.

Their “innocent” selfie then went viral three years later when it was found and widely shared during the height of the Black Lives Matter protests following the 2020 murder of George Floyd.

The court decision gained some attention on social media:

While a pair of kids with acne treatment on their faces can have their lives uprooted for such an apparent offense, leftist entertainers and politicians predictably get a pass.

Earlier this year, the New York Post reported:

Megyn Kelly lashed out at “sanctimonious leftists” in Hollywood for their “hypocrisy” in embracing Trump-bashing Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel on Monday despite the fact that the late-night star once wore blackface for a comedy skit that made fun of basketball legend Karl Malone.

Kelly, who was fired by NBC in 2018 over comments she made about the controversial topic, lambasted the Oscar attendees “who laughed and curried favor with the man who wore blackface so many times, he’s second only to Justin Trudeau in his fondness for the practice.”

On her SiriusXM podcast Monday, she noted that the audience at the Academy Awards “absolutely ate up the performance by Hollywood darling Mr. Kimmel” even though “some of the very same celebrities who wanted you to believe they were horrified — horrified — after yours truly said in 2018 that people used to don dark makeup to imitate well-known black celebrities and it wasn’t a big deal.”

Here’s another recent case that led to some serious backlash:
