    Justin Trudeau is the biggest liar, and all the women of Canada fell for his "i am a feminist" bullshit, that was just a way to get votes and now somehow I have no idea, got elected by Canadians again, and they did not have to do that just to keep Andrew Sheer out of office. What kind of people vote for this guy who puts a fake penis in his pants and wears a black face. Those Canadians should be embarrassed.

    I wouldn't have a problem... but PC Principal Trudeau xD so deserving. And just look at 6:01 the "black" guy on the right has literally the same skin color as the "white" in the middle. Don't the PC libtards see how they adopt the slave owners' "one drop rule"?

    Trudeau is a decent man. I’m glad he won. Not like that orange monster sitting in the White House. I hope Canada surpasses America.

    ..ok,sooo (Jet black) face for you were Normal?...while most White people especially white woman and others wear a tanning cream or solutions,and actually look good and respectful which is basically tanning creams and it's cool cause woman mostly across the board are sharing different shades of color (that's cool and sexxy)more power to them.(but what this guy did really seems Over the top,and obviously he's smart enough or at least mature and professional enough to have checked himself before stepping out like that even in 2019...just saying as a 63yr. african american who was born in alabama in 1956,but we all sometime make bad or poor decisions though,and I think maybe that's all it was..just my take on it.ps; "he that forgets his history is destined to repeat it".I forgive him,let's all just try and do a lot better.amen

    ok so let me get this straight if this was a republican or someone for trump. they would have been torn to pieces but now that its all come out now its just a PR rebound? its cool if someone one the left does it but some one on the right and they get the book thrown at him. thats why i stopped watching bullshit shows like this. this puppet does pieces on what ever his masters tells him to.

    I'm a Black American. I suspect that some white male "blackfacers" are only mischievous cosplayers. They harbor a subconscious wish that they were James Brown or Wilson Pickett.. "Get up/get on up/ get up/ get on up/lay on the scene/get on up/like a sex machine!"

    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?

    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.

    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 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.
