It's no secret that Blackface Jesus is our new favorite downtown character, what with his half-naked traipsing and offensive facepaint. According to a reader, there is no limit to the depths of Blackface Jesus:
i met black-face jesus last wednesday at the nouveau party and learned that he is seriously committed to bringing hybrid taxis to new york. he walked around the entire night with pro-hyrbrid slogans painted on his back (not visible in your photos), and struck up conversations about the campaign with anyone who asked about them.
Oh, how we misunderstood. He's not a crackheaded hipster; he's just a well-meaning environmentalist. He who believes in Blackface Jesus will also drive the hybrid that he drives, and in greater taxis than these he will ride...
