They say imitation is the highest form of flattery. That’s a bold-faced lie.
A few days ago, I saw a bunch of people posting a picture of some random woman on Twitter, saying she was doing blackface. Before you open images on Twitter, you only see the top half. So all I saw was this:
“What are they talking about? She’s clearly blac- oh my god, it’s Kim Kardashian.”
I was shocked. I thoroughly thought it was some photo shoot featuring a light-skinned black woman. NOT Kim K: a woman of Armenian and English descent.
What is going on?
