Blackface and racist make-up in Canadian Prime Minister’s youth comes back to haunt him

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said that he does not remember how many times he put on racist makeup and wore a blackface in his youth, as photographs showing the same, continue to dominate the upcoming election campaign,

Trudeau immediately apologised and said that although the photographs were taken in his youth, it was something he deeply regretted and that he ought to have known was wrong.

It is being reported that the pictures are causing him untold damage as the election draws closer given his political platform and stand in favour of social justice, inclusivity and diversity.

Canadian muslims said they were very disappointed with these photographs and videos, which in their words were a form of racist caricature.
