The blackface saga in VA continues to spawn news reports and online discussions. It's an awful situation, but there is one upside - we (as a country) are finally having a discussion that was overdue decades ago. Regardless of one's intentions, the reality is that it hearkens back to a terrible period of our history, and for our fellow black human beings, it's a painful reminder of the horrors their ancestors endured, and the casual racism they continue to face daily.
It also has us all going back to our high school and/or college yearbooks (and photo albums) to see if our history is tainted. The answer - yes, we are all tainted. I looked at my high school yearbook and guess what? There was a blackface photo.
