What about Dave Chappelle acting "white" on the Chappelle show? He even goes so far as to paint his face and wear a blond wig. I see no problem with this at all as long as it is used in good taste. If we are to get rid of racism then we should learn to embrace our cultures and heritage and try to take things a little more lightly.
