Stop Racism

I've read an article about blackface that Japanese TV performers often paint their faces black to pretend African American singers. They must stop that disgusting performance immediately. 
Blackface is definitely racism. Only Japanese people don't know it. I even didn't know about that until recently, though. Some performer said,"don't get me wrong. I highly respect black people and even I wanted to be a black". But that is no excuse and there are no exception. 
You should check out minstrel show if you don't know the history of blackface. The long history of the show made the stereotype of African American people.
