    Why is it wrong for a white man to dress and put on makeup in order to imitate a black man and not considered wrong for a man to dress and wear makeup to imitate a woman? Why aren't women up in arms about transvestites mocking women?

    Lighten up. If Justin was truly trying to imitate an black, he would have worn fat lips and a wide nose.

    I learned about minstrel shows and the history of blackface in my small town southern high school. There’s no excuse for him “not knowing” it was racist.

    Is blackface really that racist in these modern times anymore than dressing like a Native American chieftain?

    I don't get it. Why is OK for the Wayans brothers to wear Whiteface ("White Chicks") or Eddie Murphy (all his movies....as whites, Asians, etc) & no one thinks they were racist. I'm black but personally I thought White Chicks was stereotypical & racist. Eddie Murphy's portrayal of Asians is always sterotypical and somewhat racist in my opinion. Now don''t get me wrong, I don't support blackface, whiteface or any other face. Every one should stay in their lane as their race. What's important is we live in harmony together globally & stop racism all together
    Alright haters, bring on the hate😜

    I'll be more supportive of the anti black face movement when I can freely use the "N" word! Otherwise, get over it.

    I will NEVER DISMISS OR DOWNPLAY FASCISM. Thing is that people do this for Halloween at times or even as a joke. No one ever talks about how 2 Black men, dressed in white face and played 2white women in a movie. That is wrong. If this is RACISM then what do you consider WHITE CHICKS the movie. That movie was racist. Making fun of white women. Hypocrites!!! They even stopped allowing a movie called Soul Man from being shown because a white man played a black man. Time to stop and respect each other no matter what their skin color. Stop the true racism and war on skin.

    Not only he dressed up as Jim Crow, but he used that character to represent Aladin. It's a double insult because all third world people are "niggers" for him. He was a teacher at the time. Son of a posh anglican polititian. He didn't know better at the time. Not only that he didn't know it rasist at the time, but he didn't know what's rasisam really. For him those were exotic funny people. But, all white western people were like that at the time. Things are changing rapidly and Mr. Aladin is one of prominent leaders of those changes. He admits it was wrong. He is great guy at the time. So let's be calm and keep moving 🙂

    It's the fact that HE did it. The guy who lectures everybody about race all the time got caught doing blackface MULTIPLE times. Also the fact this is the first time the Left has not treated it like a huge unforgivable event.

    Progressives say blackface is wrong and whiteface is okay because of the history behind blackface. But then why isn't brownface okay?

    Trudeau knew full well it was racist shock humor. This was the 2000s, well after blackface was well established as an old racist past time.

    This seems idiotic to me.
    How is dressing up as Aladdin and using the character's skin tone black face? Or any other character for that matter?
    From what I understand black face was when whites dressed up to look like a "funny" or racist persona of black people for the "entertainment" of making fun of black people.
    There needs to be a separation between dressing up as a representation of a character and dressing up as a racist persona of a character for the specific purpose of racist entertainment.
    He did nothing wrong.

    Admitting does not make it any better. You have to judge Trudeau by his own standards as an informed and ‘enlightened’ member of personkind....... it’s FAR, far, worse coming from him. FAR worse. You are brainwashed if you cannot see that.

    Can't believe the fools commenting here trying to down play what Trudeau did.
    This is why the left is finished, because of this hypocrisy.
    "It's better to have in power someone who 'once' was a little bit racist than a party that we (imagine and fantasize) about being racist with no actual proof but my feel".
    Sure, libs.

      Apparently the former is racism and the latter is not because the SJWs have rejected reality and substituted their own reality (and as part of that process they have redefined the word racism).
