When blackface is used in Australia do people genuinely get offended?
As recently as 2009 'Hey Hey It's Saturday' in Australia showed performers in blackface representing the Jackson 5 with the Micheal Jackson character in whiteface. Too edgy? (The performers were of Indian descent)
Sir Ben Kingsley won an Oscar in 1983 for his portrayal of Gandhi in brownface and it was extremely well received in India. No one complained that his performance was racist.
Where does the line get drawn. Trudeau is an idiot but is he really racist?
