First thing’s first with this story… The kid on the left is a dude, right? That’s gotta be a guy. So what’s he doing “undergoing a beauty treatment” in his college dorm? If anything that’s what the internet should be criticizing him for, not for posting a picture where it looks like he’s trying to be a black guy for Halloween.
That being said, I still think this is just people freaking out about race for the sake of freaking out about race. Yeah, they probably should’ve known that a few eyebrows would raise at the sight of a couple college kids wearing anything that even resembles black face, but I just don’t think they were trying to make some anti-black statement by posting a picture on the UW SnapChat story. Although the chick throwing up the deuce didn’t do them any favors. If you’re gonna post that picture, everything else about the scene has to be as white as possible to make it very obvious that you’re not imitating black people. So actually now that I think about it, I just changed my mind mid-blog. Racist.
