That's considered a very racist thing as I've known it in the U.S.. It's not intended that way there tho? I wouldn't be offended in context. it's a big world and different strokes for different folks, eh?

Ok in Europe it seem sto be a in thing during the world cup especially if you support a black team to black your face up.
Seems most Europeans don't think its racist and a term of endearment.
Are people getting upset for no reason? is it racist?
I say no. Its ok to dye my hair to go to a fancy dress party what wrong with being black for a day? I see no offense.

Like a previous poster mentioned, I know of this sort of thing to be considered racist in the States. However, couldn't this be put a long the same lines of a group of non-Asians wanting to support the Japanese in the world cup and in order to do this they somehow force their eyes to be almond shaped?
