Default New York Times changes 'blackface' headline after public outrage over double standard

Marry Poppins = Blackface

Democrat doing it = Dark Makeup

You'll go mentally insane tryin' to figure out lib standards.

The letter "D" is a powerful thing in the MSM.

New York Times changes 'blackface' headline after public outrage over double standard

Quote:
The New York Times was hit with an onslaught of social media outrage after some noticed a double standard in their headlines covering blackface controversies from Democrats.

The story covered revelations about Virginia's Attorney General, who is a Democrat, and his stunning admission that he had once dressed up like a rap artist and darkened his face in the costume.

The New York Times referred to it as "Dark Makeup" in their headline.

But many social media users lined up to point out that in January, the New York Times had published a critique referring to a scene in the revered movie "Mary Poppins" where the title character ended up with dark soot on her face. In order to heighten the controversy, they called that image "blackface" in the headline.
