Will Justin Trudeau's history of appearing in Blackface damage his credibility?

Update:

No, it wouldn't offend me if a Black person wore Whiteface for a costume; but for various reasons Blackface is considered very offensive.  Probably something to do with the movie "Birth of a Nation" among other things. Trudeau should have known that.

    I don't see why it should. It wasn't done out of malice. He just wanted to dress-up.

    Maybe we should ask black people if it offends them or not.

    Would it offend you if a black person wanted to dress-up as a white guy

    and wore make-up?

    Big fuss over nothing. Times have changed, we need to move on.
