Will.i.am Defends Blackface VMA's Costume

Will.i.am Defends Blackface VMA's Costume

Will.i.am is defending his blackface VMA's costume!

The Black Eyed Peas singer was forced to defend his costume after he took some serious heat for painting his face black for a performance with Nicki Minaj (who really bombed). @iamwill tweeted, "1st. just because I where all black including head mask as expression and emphasize my outfit, it shouldn't be looked at as racial..." He added, "Let go of the past. there are far more important things 2 bark about. (Jobs, health, education) not a black man wearing all black everything." Even that didn't calm down his critics so he tweeted, "Are you guys serious? my outfit set 'black people back 100 yrs' choose your twits wisely. no education sets people back, no jobs, bad health."

Will.i.am has some very good points and it's not clear why so many people were offended. Share you thoughts in the comments! Were you offending by Will.i.am's blackface costume?

Quick Fact
It seems that the machines are winning in this digital age where voice-to-text is so prevalent. Many have abandoned the professional services of transcribers because they think that Androids and iPhones do much better jobs at documenting conversations. We are proud to say that the masses are wrong. A recent experiment placed man against machine in the battle for the accuracy and man, professional transcribers that is, defeated the competition. Whereas the machine mistook the word "ago" for "I go," professional transcribers had a knack for hearing and correctly interpreted the text. The playing field between man and technology is a bit more leveled.
