Good idea or bad idea? Players of a Turkish soccer team are reportedly planning to don blackface at their next match to stand in solidarity with teammate Didier Drogba as well as other players of African descent. Drogba, a native of the Ivory Coast, was the most recent victim of racist chants and heckling by fans during a match last week. (Photo: Lars Baron/Getty Images)
