I don't think it is but some people might think it is because they're need something to complain about.

it's not the skin you were born with. it's saying you have a choice to be black or white. where people of color were born in their skin, and in therefore the history of discrimination they had to endure.

do you see black people painting their faces white? it's just horribly disrespectful. research "Al Jolson".

By itself it isn't, but it represents a long history of white people exploiting and demeaning people with coloured skin. It's the historical context more than the specific action that matters in this situation.
