Is clown makeup black face?

So I saw a post on twitter (photo below) and I tried doing research about it but nothing seemed to come up. Can someone help me find some sources or explain to me the history behind it? I don’t really know what to believe but it was really interesting since people today still do clown makeup like that.

    No that is white face and that is ok because it does not show fake black people only fake white people. Didn't you realise that it is only racist if it is against a black person but the double standard doesn't apply if it is against a white person. Funny how the Asians don't complain if a white person tries to look like them. Why are the blacks so touchy if a white man imitates them. It is political correctness gone mad.
