Fuckin' whiny, pansie society we've become Snapchat of sophomore girl 'in blackface while dressed as Tupac' at party sparks outrage at Texas high school A Snapchat picture which appears to show a girl in 'blackface' while dressed as Tupac has sparked outrage at a Texas high school. The image shows the teenage girl with black paint on her face as she smiles and clasps her hands together during an event organized by a secret club run by students at Lamar High School in Houston. The girl - who has not been identified but is believed to be a sophomore - is wearing a Tupac shirt, leading some to believe that she painted her face black to dress up as the late rapper. The screenshot spread like wildfire on Twitter, infuriating other students at the school who have accused the girl of being racist. +2 A Snapchat picture which appears to show a girl in 'blackface' while dressed as Tupac has sparked outrage at a Texas high school Students told Click 2 Houston that the party was organized by a secret society called Wichaka, but others on Twitter named the club as Pow Wow. The club is said to hold hazings and the girl was told to wear a costume by seniors, students said. 'I thought it was blackface and I was immediately offended,' student Ogechi Anene said. 'She was supposed to be Tupac. If you were to impersonate a black person even as a costume I don't think it's appropriate to wear black paint on your skin.' Another Lamar student, identified only as Jess, tweeted: 'Even if her intentions aren't to be racist it's still offensive. And it's the same thing as blackface. 'She's painting herself black while representing Tupac. That's all I need to know.' A third student, called Lucy, said: 'To anyone defending her, please learn about the history of blackface and get your s*** together.' However, other students leaped to the girl's defense, saying the teenager came to the party dressed as a shadow, not a black person. +2 The image shows the teenage girl with black paint on her face as she smiles and clasps her hands together during an event organized by a secret club run by students at Lamar High School (pictured) in Houston Reagan Shadwick was not at the party because she was grounded but said she was friends with the organizers. 'It's not anything with blackface, we didn't even know what blackface was,' she said. 'It was supposed to be a shadow. They asked her to bring a black shirt and that happened to be the shirt she was wearing.' She gave a different explanation to WFAA, telling the news station that the girl was dressed as Tupac but the costume was not intended to come across as racist. Wahid Fady, who was at the party, said the whole situation had been 'greatly misinterpreted'. 'It was interpreted in a racist manner, which it wasn't intended to be,' she said. 'And social media has a tendency to boost these things to make them go viral.' Houston Independent School District said they would not be taking action against the girl because the event was off campus and not affiliated to a school.
