British Army Faces Racism Claims Over ‘Blackface’ Tweet

Post  dirge on Wed Oct 19, 2016 8:46 pm

The British Army has been accused of racism after posting a picture of a soldier which a number of people complained appeared to reference blackface.
The tweet, sent out by the Army’s official Twitter account, claimed that being a solider in the jungle “requires a robust sense of humour” and featured a picture of an officer wearing black camouflage face paint.

What next? A ban on British soldiers wearing camouflage?
