‘White up’

Have your say

How come it’s quite in order for black ex-footballer Sol Campbell, actor David Harewood and others to ‘white up’, albeit for an advert? Yet all hell is let loose and cries of racist etc, if a white man blacks up? Where are all the ‘do-gooders’ and anti-racists on this one?

Remember the Black and White Minstrel Show being banned because of ‘blacking up’?

Does this now mean we can look forward to such programmes being brought back or is there one rule for blacks and another rule for whites?
