Racism or Oversensitivity – Students wear “blackface” and dress like the Jamaican Bobsled team


Eleven students at Aylesbury Grammar School in Buckinghamshire, England wore “black faces” and dressed like the Jamaican Bobsled team to celebrate the end of their school careers. The photo above of 4 students (3 white and 1 mixed race) wearing wigs and with their faces painted black was posted by the school’s headmaster Stephen Lehec on twitter. It was quickly removed and the school issued an apology. What do you think? Racism or Oversensitivity.
