Wait, hold up, hold up -- did y'all remember that there is a minstrel show
in Little Town on the Prairie? And that this minstrel show features Pa (and five other town leaders) in blackface
, doing darkie jokes
and singing darkie songs
in darkie voices
? And that everybody in the whole goddamn town thinks this show -- the climax of an entire winter's worth of Friday night Literaries -- is the best funniest most awesome and hilarious thing in their whole fucking lives
Because there is.
And I, being slightly hung over, very tired, and decidedly not in the mood to explain cracker-ass racist fuckery at 7:15 on a Sunday morning, skipped -- for now-- the several pages devoted to its description, Shatner help me.
