Turkish TV reporter dons blackface to report on Obama

Maybe this is the Turkish version of The Daily Show...

YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE IT IS NOT INSULTING INSULTING SOMEBODY BECAUSE OF HIS COLOUR IS A BIG SIN in his religion .

i will try to explain what reported said in his speech
firstly he is protesting OBAMA and he wants obama to do some favor for TURKIYE then there is a famous proverb in turkish (isteyenin bir yuzu kara vermeyenin iki yuzu) means ‘The one who asks has one side of his face dark; the one who refuses to give has both sides’ Used to put the shame or burden on the side that can give but refuses to do so.

Namely he tries to show this proverb and he said if you dont what i want , you are more black than me… thank youtotaly agree with you guys that reporter is very stupid .

you can sure about there is no insulting in his speech , i am a turkish that s why i know .

according to islam colours of people are not important we all are brothers… sorry about my english , I APOLOGIZE FOR HIS STUPID SHOWING FROM MY BLACK BROTHERS…..

We have our share of stupid people in America

Take Bush for example, he totally didn't get what that shoe throwing incident was all about. Heck, that dude deserved a medal not a prison term. That was the first good laugh I'd had in a long time.

This is just another example of things meaning something different in another culture. Here in America putting on blackface is a big insult to many. Ted Danson did it at a Fryer Club Roast.
