Look: 'It Isn't Cute or Funny!' Oklahoma Students Slammed for Wearing Blackface Masks on MLK Day in Problematic IG Post

An intense debate followed on campus and Twitter.

Published January 18, 2017

  1. In an untimely posted photo on Instagram, several Oklahoma State students were pictured wearing blackface on Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  2. Once the post was circulated online, many people became angry and demanded the school take action
  3. Oklahoma State University's Twitter page commented that they are handling the issue
  4. However, one person posted a text she received from someone who claimed that the girls are clearly wearing face masks
  5. Although the girls have not commented on whether it is a mask or blackface, many think they need to understand the insensitivity involved in blackface

    None of the girls in the photo have commented, nor have their identities been released.
