Niggas actin in blackface claiming that they are Midas
This is something pretty deep:
In the early days of film, there were a few black roles, and fewer black actors. Because so many of the roles were offensive, there emerged the notorious man in blackface. They used the “blackface” to differentiate black people from white people, and the “blackface” people were mistreated and abused and were usually mocked. Even the authentic black actors were in roles of ignorant, and neutral people. In the first years of the Modern Age, black actors were often beaten and threatened if they assumed roles that suggested equality.
Midas is the name of at least three members of the royal house of Phrygia.
The most famous, King Midas is popularly remembered in Greek mythology for his ability to turn everything he touched into gold. This came to be called the Golden touch, or the Midas touch
Nowadays you see rappers wearing gold and providing useless lyrics to the people giving themselves a bad posture, hence the saying of the blackface since they’re only mocking themselves, something like this:
Sad, isn’t it?
