Stop Shirley Q. Liquor

312 Signatures Goal: 500

We call on the Russian River Resort to cancel the performance of blackface drag queen Shirley Q. Liquor on June 19th, 2010.

Shirley Q. Liquor is a drag persona played by Charles Knipp. Knipp performs in blackface as an exagerated stereotype of a black "welfare queen."  There is no point to this performance other than to get cheap laughs. While we can support intelligent comedic analysis of oppression, racism, and race relations we cannot and will not support this modern day minstrel show.

To have a blackface performer at an event called "hurricane" weekend on Juneteenth is offensive and racist.
