Yeah ... Hillary Clinton Might Have Dressed in Blackface

Updated on June 11, 2016
Bill and Hillary Clinton would never admit to this.
Bill and Hillary Clinton would never admit to this.

Even I was amazed at how quickly this story was "debunked."

But I'm not buying it. Mostly because if it was them, they couldn't ever admit to it.

Snopes noted three "proofs:"

  • The height difference,
  • "Hillary's" eyes appear to be brown,
  • Because the Clintons have long been in a position of power, this photo should have come to light many years ago.

The height difference noted by Snopes is ridiculous. They used a photo from the Clintons' wedding, in which the Clintons were photographed with Hillary standing on a step so she appears to be the same height as Bill. Strike One.

The blackfaced woman in the photograph might have brown eyes. But it is just as likely that the camera angle made it appear that her eyes are dark. Strike Two.

And Snopes' "proof:" Why would it take so long for the photo to be published? Wouldn't the Clintons' enemies be frothing at the mouth to get their hands on such damning evidence as this?That's an easy one.

Because there are probably billions of photos lying in millions of boxes and albums in homes all over the country; photos that have not been seen in decades. There is a good possibility that this was in a shoebox in a guest room closet ... maybe the owner of the photograph didn't even remember being at the party with the Clintons. Maybe someone's kid found it and the person then confirmed that they were at a party with the Clintons. Stranger things have happened.

So while I can't say with 100% certainty that this is the Clintons, and that Hillary is wearing blackface ... well, I'm not ready to 100% debunk it, either. So Strike Three.

The Ears Have It

Clinton's earlobe is entirely attached.  It is important to note that this is not a dominant trait; most earlobes are unattached.

This is the SAME earlobe!

Ignoring that the guy in this photo looks really stoned, and remembering that Bill Clinton normally carries big bags under his eyes ... what caught my attention were the earlobes.

Attached earlobes are a recessive trait (about 30% of the population has attached earlobes), yet these two pictures show men with identical, attached earlobes ... or maybe it's just the same guy.

The slender man in the photo has visible shoulder bones.

Both are hair-free on their chest and neck.

Both have the same skin coloring.

Hillary Clinton's not-so-narrow face.

Another argument is that Hillary's face is more narrow than the blackfaced woman. But as you can see, there are several photos in which Hillary has a fuller face.

Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Bill and Hillary Clinton.

The clincher for me is the teeth. The blackfaced woman's teeth are clearly not very good, but neither are Hillary Clinton's. The front six teeth on the top are straight enough, but the back teeth are clearly not aligned with the front teeth.

Her eye tooth, in particular, looks very similar.

Hillary's imperfect teeth.

Leaves room for doubt.

I can't say with any kind of certainty that this is Bill and Hillary Clinton, but I think that people debunked it too quickly.

Snopes needed to leave this at a "maybe."

After all, in some photos, people we know are the Clintons don't look like the Clintons.

I swear, this is Bill and Hillary Clinton.

      I don't know about the woman, but the man looks as close to Bill Clinton as you can get and, if it is Bill, it doesn't matter if the woman is Hillary or not, he is posing with a white person in blackface. It wouldn't surprise me at all. I also know they would make up a never-ending list of excuses for him.

      Herp derp the teeth aren't the same!

      She's old now, and she likely had dental work LIKE ALL RICH PEOPLE IN FRONT OF A CAMERA.

      Herp derp the eyes are a different color!

      How do you know the person in the picture wasn't wearing colored contacts (her being rich would allow her access to this even before the crap became public), in order to APPEAR MORE BLACK SINCE BLACK PEOPLE DON'T GENERALLY HAVE BLUE EYES.

      Her p derp The height ain't the same! She's as tall as Bill!

      Yes, and we all know Greedo was the same height as Han, and in no way was their an ELEVATION MECHANISM (see: High heels for Greedo, and a box for the Jawa) TO APPEAR THE SAME HEIGHT FOR EASIER PICTURES OF THE CLINTONS TOGETHER IN CLOSE-UPS.

      When I was in the Marines during Vietnam I sometimes saw WANTED posters for the FBI's ten most wanted of Underground Weatherman Bernadine Dohrn for killing a cop and terrorism.

      Funny how Obama's first political campaign was launched from her living room. Funnier still she and her husband Bill Ayers danced at BHO's insugeral ball in the White House in 2009.

      Yeah, I guess the biggest problem with this whole theory is that the photo is of ROGER Clinton, not Bill...

      Snopes is almost as useless as RationalWiki. Have you seen any of the nude & soft-porn pix of Stannie Dunham(Obama's momma)?

      MizBejabbers there were plenty of Campaign Buttons with Clinton/Gore with Confederate Flags. Google them they are easy enough to find.

      I had no memory of this, so I looked it up.

      Although most of those places have family memberships, I doubt the Clintons would formally have been members. But it seems like yes, they frequented that country club and were members in every sense except paying for the actual membership.

      Did Hillary belong to the same all white country club Bill belonged to?Add Your Comment...

      Thank you, Bryan. I wanted to stick to the subject in my reply so I'll say it now, I don't know what Jeremiah is talking about. Before I commit myself, I would like to see the "bumper sticker with the confederate flag." Our Arkansas state flag is sometimes mistaken for the Confederate Flag. Some people say that was intentional, and some say it wasn't but every star and stripe on that flag represent something in the history of the state, and the diamond represents the fact that Arkansas has the only diamond mine in the continental US.

      Miz, your response is far more thoughtful than that of Snopes.

      There is what looks like an attachment on the face that makes it look like she has a double chin, also causing her face to look wider. It's easily noticeable if you brighten the image in a photo editor.

      The photo is not that close to Hillary and the giveaway is the teeth, especially the bicuspids. Hillary's aren't as long, and the teeth to the rear of the bicuspids on the blackface are crookedly not in line with the bicuspids. While Hillary's aren't perfect, they aren't that far back. Also, when she smiles, she doesn't show much of her lower teeth, if at all. This happens in a lot of people, including myself.

      I am of the opinion that this may not even be a woman. The hair is fake, so it could be a wig on a young man. I think that probably is Bill, and the photo of him probably was taken at some Hillbilly follies. Our state used to have Li'l Abner and Daisy Mae follies, and he looks like Li'l Abner. (We even had a theme park called "Dogpatch".) Those were very common in the days before political correctness. The photo of Bill looks young enough that it probably was taken before he met Hillary. There is a possibility that this was a Photo Shopped photo anyway.

      This is a close one. But the one out there that you can not get away from is the Clinton bumper sticker and pins with the Confederate Flag from 1992 and in 2008, where there were a few States that supported Hillary and had Confederate flags on their pin.
