Sigh. This thread has gone off rail.
I think she legit dressed up as someone she admired. Her friend dressed up as a Mexican person i think? And she dressed as Kayne.
A few weeks ago two people dressed as aboriginals. I really don't care. I don't find it offensive. Or racist.
Why can people dress as cleopatra , Indians etc! It's exactly the same IMO. It was a fancy dress if anything the other team mate should of approached her not online

The point was she dressed up as Kayne not a 'black person' so I don't think it's offensive just accurate

Cleopatra was white, I believe.
I'm also not understanding why you would think her comment was bullying? What was bullying-like about it?
Plus, yes what the other girl was dressed as was racist, too if we go into that. Her outfit was an outfit relating to Dia De Muertos, a special event for and by Mexican people (Day of the Dead). It's just people aren't as aware of that...here especially. That is opening up another can of worms for this thread as well.
I'm not really sure how many people can say before others understand. It's not that she dressed up as Kanye. It's that she went in black face.

I'm not sure racist is quite the right term here - I'd describe it more as insensitive and stupid. Dressing up as someone who is a different race is not the issue, it's painting one's face black as this (as PPs have mentioned) has historical context and could cause offence.
