I don't care about any excuse that an be brought forth, seeing black face on white people makes me cringe. It is so disrespectful and is only done to mock and stereotype black people. As long as black people are portrayed as characters devoid of meaningful stories and experiences, racism will continue to rage on. I don't care where the people live, what culture they grow up in, this is inherently wrong. No one should put on black face. Period.
