Photo Of Soot-Covered Coal Miners Criticized For ‘Blackface’


Seeing racism everywhere…

This story proves that not enough ‘journalists’ have been fired yet. It shows that the editor who is in charge of Arizona Central is as guilty of ignorance as is the complainer. Don’t go looking for racism where none exist.
