The photo above is a picture of famed Dominican model and actress, Amara La Negra. Recently one of La Negra’s fellow Dominicans decided it would be cute to imitate her with blackface.
TV host and former pageant queen, Geisha Montes de Oca wore blackface, an afro wig and butt pads on her show Aquí Se Habla Español and the responses have been interesting.
Some people also noted and defended de Oca by saying blackface isn’t a think in the Dominican Republic, so she didn’t do it to be offensive. And that things are different between D.R. and the U.S.
Clutchettes, what do you think?
