tbh, it was kind of offensive.
having done work with poor kids in third world countries and seeing what they go through daily, i don't see stuff that makes fun of their situation being all that funny. pretty bad taste, imo.
Well that's pleasant. I definitely could have gone without seeing that picture top dawg.
It's a ritual of tribal Dinka people of Sudan. They actually wash their hair in urine to turn it orange, as they like the look. Adults do the same thing. So actually, it being exploitation of children is incorrect. It's a cultural thing that is done voluntarily (unlike, perhaps, some others which may be "voluntary" but are done under peer pressure or threat of being labeled a pariah). Now, of course you or I wouldn't do this being that we are from our westernized, "superior", culture. But, to each his own. Sometimes, offensiveness, taste, and/or unpleasantness is in the eye of the beholder, but in the end, who are we to judge? Just food for thought. Not trying to be so much funny as to make a poignant point about this Williams situation.
BTW, you might be interested to know that Manute Bol probably did the same thing as he came up in tribal culture (pre-America, of course). Luol Deng is also Dinka, but he moved to Britain when he was eight (his father got political asylum).
