FAIL: Jackson Jive Australian TV Blackface Performance

December 8, 2011

The Jackson Jive are an old entertainment group that are said to have once been popular some 20 years ago from their minstrel performances imitating the legendary Jackson 5.

An Australian television show brought them back to the limelight out of humor (I'm guessing) to perform once again, only this time instead of painting the late Michael Jackson's face black they painted it white.  By watching this type of performance and seeing the outcome shows that we actually have come a long way because the judges (all but one) gave them the scores they definitely deserved.  If it were up to me, they would have gotten all zero's because in my eyes that's exactly what they are.  There's definitely nothing cute about trying to make black people look like fools.  Besides that, they were horrible.
