IMO Blackface is a racist caricature of Black people. Some of the things I am seeing called Blackface doesnt make sense to me. Is what Rachael Dolozal did Blackface? What about this?

You have a right to your opinion but Black face, is a derogatory, lampooning of Black people that has been done in Europe, for hundreds of years, , most well known was
Black Piet

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zwarte_Piet

It was used regularly from the earliest movie productions at the beginning of the 1900s , to the 30s, as White actors , painting their faces Black in silent films when African Americans did not have the power , legal right s or unity to combat it ;
The new rise of Blackface in clothing by White high , brand name fashion companies has to do with their feeling safe from serious preprisals and boycotts, , that they knew the Global Black community would have enforced , had they dared to pull this crap during and right after the Black Power and Black Nationalist Movements in the 60s 70s and 80s, and to some extent in the 90s as well;

Nonsense. Blackface is an American word for an American phenomenon that doesn't exist and has never existed in continental Europe, for reasons obvious to anyone with a little understanding of European history. Zwarte Piet is not only younger than blackface, it was never meant to lampoon blacks or be derogatory. That doesn't mean it's all right, but the intent to lampoon an be derogatory is what makes blackface blackface. Europe is not America, and certainly nothing like the Netherlands when it comes to race relations. America is particularly racist and particularly backward, the Netherlands has never been very racist and is particularly post racial the last 70 years.

White Supremacy moves like house hold pests!
When we have no leaders, or national organizations to do regular maintenance ,
then they run rampage like a house full of rats roaches and bed bugs !

If you saw a housing project of 75 Black folks , on fire and could not call the fire department but used online communication to get to them and they told you to put it out, you would say what??

Is blackface different from this because blackface is meant to demean others while this isn't?
