'BLACKFACE'




Artistic or Insulting?

Beyonce plays an 'African role' in homage for Fela Kuti and 'African roots' at the shoot for L'Officiel Paris' 90th anniversary issue.

The singer 'forgot' she is black so she gets a 'black face', many have complained over the fact that by darkening her face the editors plead to 'try not to offend their vast white female audience'. Racist comments and reviews hasn't stop based on the matter that if she was an Asian singer she wouldn't have been painted like a geisha to play homage to the entire Asian continent.

Artístico o grosero?

Beyonce juega al "
papel de africana"
 en homenaje a Fela Kuti  y las "raíces africanas " para a edición  del 90 º aniversario de L'Officiel de París.

La cantante olvidó que es de color negro por lo que le dieron una "cara negro", muchos se han quejado en el hecho de que, oscureciendo su rostro los editores
 presentan la idea  "tratar de no ofender su gran audiencia blanca. Comentarios racistas  no se han detenido basados en la cuestión de que si ella fuera una cantante de Asiano habría sido pintada como una geisha para presentar  homenaje a todo el continente asiático.
