Black and white and blackface

From 538 Significant Digits:

53 percent of Americans

In a survey conducted almost entirely before the scandals involving high-profile Virginia politicians, 53 percent of Americans think it is “never” or “rarely” acceptable for a white person to use blackface as part of a Halloween costume, while 34 think it’s “sometimes” or “always” acceptable. White adults were roughly twice as likely as black adults to say that blackface can be acceptable. [Pew Research Center]

Yeah, well this white adult says blackface is never acceptable.
