In an exclusive report, Us Weekly broke the news that Gwen Stefani broke up with Gavin Rossdale because she found out he’d been cheating on her with the nanny for three years. Three! Three whole years! And she found out after discovering their sexts!
Black student groups at UCLA are understandably unhappy after reports leaked out of a predominantly white fraternity and sorority that held a “Kanye Western” themed mixer. According to the student paper, guests wore “baggy clothes, plumped lips and padded bottoms, or as “Kardashians.”
On Monday, Rachel Dolezal stepped down as president from the Spokane, Washington NAACP while name dropping the Black Liberation movement, Chattel Slavery and self-determination. What she didn’t mention is the “full story” she proclaimed none of us have about why she’s pretended to be African American for the last ten…
It’s nearing the end of the work day on October 31 and you, white person, still don’t have a costume ready for Halloween night. “Perhaps I’ll do blackface,” you say to yourself. Well, we’re here to show you how.
Bad news, my sweet summer children: The ice cream truck is racist.
White model. Facepaint. African animals. Shot by Steven Meisel and starring Dutch model Saskia de Brauw, a fashion story titled "Abracadabra" in the March 2014 issue of Vogue Italia feels sadly familiar and offensive.
Friday night, at the Slipper Room, where the local NYC crowd goes for their regular dose of burlesque, a performer got on stage and performed a number in black face. Sigh.
There's a common line that apologists love to trot out when we're discussing incidents of blackface in cultures outside of the U.S., particularly in Europe. "It's not as offensive," they say. "Blackface doesn't have the same history over there." This, widely speaking, is a lie. Blackface has been used all over the…
At a recent meeting of Italian Parliament, representative of Lega Nord (the Northern League) Gianluca Buonanno argued against basic benefits for immigrants (swell) by putting on blackface during the proceedings (sweller). "To get money, perhaps we all need to make ourselves darker," he announced to the Chamber of…

A young white Australian woman turned 21 and decided to have an "African" themed birthday party. After the festivities, she posted photos to Facebook. Ignorance, insensitivity and racism ahoy!
Ready to hear the most pathetic defense of blackface of all time? An adjunct college instructor argued that a group of pals who darkened their skin to lip-sync to The Jackson 5's "I Want You Back" didn't do anything wrong because they raised money and she wasn't in it.
An Ontarian was perusing her matches on OkCupid when she came across a 45-year-old "small business owner/failed comedian" who enjoys off-roading, "exploring," karaoke, and, it appears, sporting blackface on special occasions.
About 30 aspiring actresses who responded to a casting call got the shit fooled out of them when it turned out that they were auditioning for a part that didn't actually exist. But wait!

Vogue Netherlands has published an editorial featuring blackface makeup. The model in the story is Querelle Jansen, the stylist was Marije Goekoop, and the photographer was Ishi. Both Goekoop and Ishi are frequent contributors to the magazine.
Numéro magazine has issued an apology of sorts for the African Queen editorial in the March 2013 issue, in which Ondria Hardin, a 16-year-old, blond-haired, blue-eyed model, was shot with her skin darkened. But the magazine's message — and a message from the photographer himself — only further complicate the issue.

After Illamasqua posted this clearly blackface-inspired holiday makeup ad to the company's Australian Facebook page it promptly attracted dozens upon dozens of critical comments. After we blogged about the image, the U.K.-based company first took the Facebook post down. Then it put it back up. Because why not! It's…
