College is a critical period in a young person’s life. It’s a critical time to meet lifelong friends, learn new things and figure out your professional goals. But not to be racist.
Don’t do Blackface
There’s a range of skin colors available in the European palette. You can be as light as fresh winter snow or sassy, suntanned and swarthy. Before you dive past the brown threshold stop and watch 1986’s cinematic disaster Soul Man. If you don’t want to be an easy reference for racial insensitivity for the remainder of your life like C. Thomas Howell, put down the face paint and take a comfy lie in the nearest tanning bed.
