The October issue of French Vogue, which is on newsstands now, has struck uproar with a controversial editorial spread that features Dutch model, Lara Stone.
Blackface dates back to the 19th-century and was a style of theatrical makeup that originated in the US. Minstrelsy. It was used to portray the stereotypes that Americans had of black people for ex: being the buffoon and the butt of every joke. The blackface was used to take on the appearance of the "happy-go-lucky darky on the plantation" or the "dandified coon ".
& this is why the editorial upset me greatly.
What are your thoughts?
