Americas Top Model contestant in blackface

America's Top Model contestant in "blackface"

Another media kerfluffle surrounding blackface, or what seems to be described as “basically blackface.”

The story on Tyra Bank’s transgression here.

It will be very interesting to see people’s reaction to the use of blackface in the BH film, Alligator Horses, which is currently in the final stages of editing.
