Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was just asked when did he first realize that wearing blackface was racist.
He pointed to the diversity of the crowd gathered in Winnipeg, Manitoba, to watch him speak, and said serving as a leader for diverse populations made him realize that blackface and brownface are wrong.
“Fighting for them, defending them” made it “very, very clear to me,” he said.
He added that dressing up as he did in the newly surfaced photos is “absolutely unacceptable.”
The first photo that surfaced was taken in 2001.
