With the Help of Makeup and Photoshop, Tyra Banks Becomes White

Tyra as cara dBlack supermodel Tyra Banks recently posted photos of herself transformed into a few white supermodels, which upset a handful of idiots who complained about “whiteface” somehow being as bad as blackface.

This reminds me of the fucking cockamamie argument that it’s okay for us all to say the n-word just because black people do. Funny because I don’t recall anyone voluntarily entering shackles in the 1800s.

It’s also Tyra Banks, the maniacal puppetmaster who told us all to kiss her fat ass as she impersonated a homeless person, an ugly person (or was that the same episode?), and dressed her ANTM girls up in everything from drag to their birthday suits and dangled them out of windows for fun.

The Cara Delevingne impression is actually spot-on. Kate Moss and Cindy Crawford not so much. In a new batch of photos she uses her magic to become black again, mimicking Iman and Grace Jones.

White Hockey Player Raffi Torres Dresses As Jay-Z

Over the years we’ve seen many a white man covered in “blackface” makeup for various forms of imitation. Unfunny Robert Downey Jr. in Tropic Thunder, Fred Armisen as Obama or even the reversal black-to-white transformation, made by Marlon and Shawn Wayans in White Chicks.

People still seem to get outraged every time, even when it’s a non-scandalous homage. Like Phoenix Coyotes left wing Raffi Torres, a player known for his spunk and defensive offense, dressing up like Jay-Z for Halloween.

His wife Gianna went as Beyonce, with a baby bump and everythang. People are stark-raving mad, but it isn’t a big deal. The guy is an admitted and devoted fan.
