blackface minstrel style get-ups and skin-darkened slaves in chains. We're not sure how the likes of fashion designers such as Alessandro Dell'Acqua haven't yet received the memo that blackface perpetuates racist, dehumanizing stereotypes and is therefore offensive, or that it is 2013 and any costumes involving such stereotypes need to be set on fire until they are dead and then buried six feet deep in the backyard of the ignorance-ain't-bliss garden of grossness. Ugh. What's your take on the situation? Tell us how you feel!
