https://time.com/5680759/justin-trudeau-brownface-photo/ https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-49749851 Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wore "brownface" at a private school gala nearly two decades ago, a photo obtained by Time Magazine shows. Addressing the image, Mr Trudeau said he "deeply regretted" his actions and "should have known better". The 2001 yearbook picture shows Mr Trudeau with skin-darkening make-up on his face and hands at the West Point Grey Academy in Vancouver. The prime minister is battling for re-election on 21 October. Mr Trudeau, who is the son of late former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, used to teach at the elite academy. Thing is, even in 2001 I knew 'blackface' was distasteful.... the only time I've seen it in the real world was at a party for Michael Jackson's Thriller back in the 1980s. The lad was 10.
