    Dressing up in blackface for Halloween, pas or faux pas?

    NHL player Raffi Torres went to a Halloween party with his wife as Jay-Z and Beyonce.

    Of course, they are white so they put some black/brown make-up.

    I have no problems with the costume, I just know he's being attacked from all over the place for it. I was wondering what others thought, that is all. :dontknow:

    The press is racist! They make money by sensationalizing, not being factual. They are promoting racism with this one.

    :grad:"If you're white, you can only dress up as white celebrities. Furthermore, anyone caught dressing up as a witch, who is not indeed a witch, should be drawn and quartered. Anyone who is a witch shall be burned at the stake! Have a safe and happy Halloween!"

    not disagreeing.

    It got me wondering about a black person making themselves white for halloween.

    I guess i don't really care. And i thought "White CHicks" was pretty funny :c

    Torres is stuck playing on the 3rd line in Phoenix, he's obviously starved for attention.
