RANDOM WTF: Shirley Q. Liquor

My best buddy in blogosphere Dareal sent me a link to some videos by a character called Shirley Q. Liquor. Shirley Q. Liquor is actually a white gay man named Chuck Knipp who dresses in drag to portray a southern Black woman that wears tacky clothes and hair, speaks with horrible grammar, and dons Blackface. Apparently this Shirley Q. Liquor character is very popular with gay and straight crowds and the live performances are sold out. Shirley makes an appearance on Rupaul’s last CD and has performed with comedian Tracey Morgan, formerly of Saturday Night Live fame. Not to mention, she has a 90 second radio segment predominantly heard in the Southern region of the US called the “Daily Ignunce”. Since becoming aware of this character, I’ve become somewhat fascinated by him/her. I watched all the videos on You Tube that were available and I came to this conclusion: If this were a Black man or woman portraying this character, it would be the funniest schtick in the world to me, but since Mr. Knipp is white, I cannot reconcile with myself that this is funny. I find the Shirley Q. Liquor character offensive and this is just another form of Blackface in my opinion. I LOVE offensive, off-color humor, and I consider myself highly open-minded but this one went right over my head. I really would be interested in knowing what others think after watching the video posted below.
