I am admitting my ignorance. I was looking through the news to see which mainstream media outlets carried a story I was looking for (I first saw it on Fox, but wanted to see if anyone else had picked it up). Every single news website had a variation of this story.
I tried Googling it, but could not get a clear picture. What is blackface? Is it any makeup that darkens your skin? I truly have never heard the term before and am trying to understand why it is such a big story (I mean front page of everything).
