    Are my freckles being racist against my natural skin color, or is it the other way around?

    Putting on black- or brown-face isn't illegal, just discouraged and frowned upon - at least in north-western Europe. If you haven't yet, try to rent the Spike Lee film, "Bamboozled" - it's an hilarious comedy about a writer who tries to create a modern blackface minstrel show for TV. He comes up with the idea to annoy his boss but the idea is a hit. A very funny and subversive satire on political correctness.

    White face is allowed. There was a movie about Two White Chicks or somthing where the Wayans brothers painted their faces white to play white girls. No problem.

    I wasn't aware there was a long history of black people painting their faces white to mock white people..

    Once again, your question is based on a false premise.

    Has anyone ever been charged with a crime for painting their face brown or black, Dayton?

      Are you saying that paining one's face brown or black in the west is legal as such? It seems that it is not.

      Btw this tradition only started 150 years ago, I'm sure English people then knew what a black person was 😂
