    So... am I a horrible person for wanting to blare, "Arabian Nights," from Aladdin on a Bluetooth Speaker at a Trudeau press conference to troll him?

      Look at what happened during the production of Miss Saigon:

      Source: Miss Saigon: Casting controversies


      In the London production of Miss Saigon, Lea Salonga originally starred as Kim, with Jonathan Pryce as the Engineer. When the production transferred from London to New York City, the Actors' Equity Association (AEA) refused to allow Pryce, a white actor, to recreate the role of the Eurasian pimp in America.

      So even though the character was half white (French-Vietnamese), a white person was initially prohibited from playing the role.

        Just think how politically incorrect and racist Star Trek is for using human actors to portray Vulcans and Klingons!

          Trudeau comes across as more of a rock and roll afficicado so may I suggest The Clash's "Rock the Casbah."

              No. That's a perfectly normal reaction.

                      Source: Justin Trudeau leaves open possibility of more blackface photos


                      Prime Minister Justin Trudeau offered a fresh apology to his fellow Canadians on Thursday over his blackface and “brownface” scandal — and left open the possibility that more photos of him in the racist makeup could surface.

                      Speaking to reporters in Winnipeg, Trudeau said he was “deeply sorry” for appearing in three images with the skin-darkening makeup.

                      “What I did hurt them,” Trudeau, the son of late former Canada Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, said of his constituency. “The buck stops with me and I have a responsibility.”

                      The Liberal Party leader stopped short of putting an exact number on the amount of times he’s dressed up in blackface.

                      “I am wary of being definitive about this because recent pictures that came out I had not remembered,” he explained. “And the question is, how can you not remember that? The fact is, I didn’t understand how hurtful this is to people who live with discrimination every single day.

                            Apparently Twitter censored numerous images of Trudeau in black face and even suspended the accounts of some of those who posted them. Further, several news services are avoiding the term "blackface" (or "brownface) when discussing Trudeau instead calling it "skin-darkening makeup" -- a phrase which would include spray-on tanning products.

                              Well. Who would have thought the media would do that sort of thing.

                                Source: Canada's Trudeau pledges assault rifle ban, pivots campaign amid blackface scandal


                                Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, embroiled in a blackface picture scandal, on Friday pledged to ban military-style assault rifles in the country’s most ethnically diverse city in a bid to get his campaign back on issue.

                                Trudeau is campaigning in Toronto with less than five weeks to go before his Liberals fight an Oct. 21 national election and two days after at least two bombshell images of him in blackface emerged, as well as a video showing him with blacked up face and body wearing a curly haired wig.

                                The scandal over the pictures - which could propel the rival Conservative Party into power - is still dominating headlines both at home and abroad.
