Beyonce Criticized For Rocking “BLACK FACE” In Fela Kuti Dedicated Photoshoot!

Beyonce recently did a unique photoshoot, dedicated to famous nigerian activist and musician, Fela Kuti. In this unique photo shoot she rocks West African inspired clothing and a black face with tribal paint under her eyes, on her lips and face. However, the black face that she wore in the shoot has fueled some anger amongst African American’s sensitive to the racist black face that took place in the early 1900s, in white films and shows. MSNBC and Huffington Post are two major news outlets that have criticized B’s shoot. Personally, I don’t think the photoshoot was a big deal. It doesn’t appear to have any racist tones in it. I feel like if they painted her completely black, gave her huge or swollen red or white lips, and put her in a clown suite, then I would be offended. Just art….ppl need to stop trippin.
