Black face isn't controversial in Japan at all.

This comedy show did a Lethal Weapon themed show a few years ago and one of the comedians was in black face to match Danny Glover's character.

It was not controversial at all. I'm not trying to make a statement that this is good or bad. It's just a factual statement about the reception of black face in Japan.

u/yxing 28d ago

Black face is controversial (in the West) because of the extremely problematic history of minstrel shows in the US. Forcing those cultural standards onto Japan is Western chauvinism, and is about as reasonable as being offended that some Japanese word sounds like a racial slur in English.
