He looked like Carrot Top's younger, (more) retarded brother.

That because of the history of white people opressing, kidnapping, and enslaving a whole race of people. And the KKK.

Everyone has oppressed each other and been oppressors and been victims of oppression.

Personally I don't see anything wrong. He actually was in full character makeup rather than just whiteface paint. No different than if Justin Timberlake would have dressed up as a black rapper rather than in just in blackface.

And that makes it OK or acceptable for them to do?

Besides, nobody had it worse than the native Americans!

I feel, acts like this is the reason why racism will always exist, people cannot completely get passed the past and keep bringing the old crap back from history like they are still living in the past.

This, intentionally or not, creates negative thoughts, for themselves at least, and increases tension all the while keeping racism alive.

Black people were killed, raped, kidnapped, enslaved, and treated as subhuman property. And told that there were "monkeys" and a "curse."

I'm a little bewildered by the brouhaha. Didn't anyone else see the Wayans brothers in White Chicks (ten years ago!)? Or Whoopi Goldberg in The Associate?
