Keep dreaming. He will somehow be heralded as a multi-cultural hero. We still have a self-admitted black-face wearing,and potentially KKK hood-wearing democrat governor in Virginia. His nickname in college was Coonman. He was not a trapper nor a hunter... The Queen of Canada will be fine. He's bona fide.
I can't believe anyone but the most sensitive would come down on somebody for wearing black face/brown face as part of a costume of a black or brown man. That it'self is stupid. I hope none of the whiners who point fingers here were upset when those who were against Kavanaugh were digging up crap from high school and college days.
It is not. A bunch of finger pointing whiners-no matter what side they the crawl from. Aladdin had dark skin. A costume without it would be stupid. And, who were the women in the pic with him? If the make up was so offensive, are they any better?
Comparing folks upset about liars making false accusations of sexual misconduct in order to destroy a an innocent mans life to folks pointing out that someone wore blackface in high school is most certainly a ridiculous comparison.
How so? Is it because I find it so funny that some adults are making such a big deal out of something that is about as near to nothing that I can't believe it draws the attention of anyone but foxnews and msnbc.

Is there an irony emoticon out there?
gryhkl, you're beating your own straw man to death. How you thought anyone commenting here would find (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) willow's tan offensive is beyond me. But then you extend your false flag by adding another, one that hasn't even been suggested.
The pot you're trying to stir is empty, but keep stirring something might magically appear.

Here's a (hypothetical) USA corollary for any who may not understand the core of the issue, imagine that:
A. Pictures surface of Brett Kavanaugh wearing blackface at a halloween party in 1986. The media and "the left", overcome with blood lust begin a brutal campaign of defamation, protests (non-violent and otherwise), threats to his family and friends and etc. so much so that his career is destroyed and he will NEVER work in his chosen field again. In all sincerity, Kavanaugh notes that it was a result of youthful indiscretion, that he is genuinely ashamed and apologizes sincerely for any harm his past actions may have caused. The apology is decried as insincere, the attacks escalate... on and on
B. Pictures surface of Elizabeth Warren in blackface, being led on a hangman's noose by Joe Biden dressed as a KKK member at a halloween party in 1976. The media and the left nearly break their own backs engaging in mental gymnastics to somehow write this off as youthful indiscretions and assure the public that both parties are genuinely ashamed and their apologies are sincere. Anyone who dares to question that narrative is labelled as a racist themselves and told they are immature for trying to dredge up mud from 1976... on and on
Nobody is even trying to disguise this circus as real life anymore here, and we are just supposed to shut up and take it because Conservatives are mean...
