Marked Safe: Camo Blackface

Marked SAFE from using camo blackface and shamelessly appropriating non-indigenous peoples war party attire while on a year-long drinking binge.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Don't Be Haters

PS: I would encourage others to come forward and confess their transgressions.

Well, I'm in the clear. Went through my senior HS yearbook. Three pictures in all. The regular one, one group picture where we're looking nice and a hallway picture that I only know I'm in the picture because I knew when it was taken. Right when I got the book I spotted the picture - and sure enough - there was the top of my head.

Does the cravat in the photo signify anything?

No, It was winter, temps in the 80t's, humidity also in the 80t's and sweat-salt in the eyes was a PITA.

We had very little access towels, so we used Uncle's "bandage muslin compressed camouflaged" They didn't last long, but they were available.


They were the 60t's version of the shemagh.

I guess we were trendsetters

I think that might be why so many old school CSM's would loose their shit when they saw a drive on rag....
...they weren't just rags.

They may have started as harmless Muslin bandages, but then after being compressed for so long, they were transformed from harmless cotton bandages into ragicalized extremist Muslin


Once they were freed from compression, everything changed


Hence the origin of the phrase, 'To Liberate the Compressed'
