Was Turkish Newsanchor In Obama Blackface A Good Idea?

obama_opt-200x150Did you hear about this Turkish newsanchor who, in reporting about President Obama's arrival in Turkey reported the story in blackface?! Who thinks this is actually a smart idea? Ted Danson?! There's been debate on whether it's a spoof, but many close to the situation think it's real. The Turkish news agency is hiding behind the lame excuse that it's "a metaphor for the way the Bush administration "darkened" the face of the Turkish public, and how the anchor hopes Obama will turn things around." What, you can't say that with your own face?
