Shanghaiist’s favourite news agency has done it again. Just half a year ago, they were caught red-handed running a gallery of pictures of blackface on Hollywood celebrities, which they were forced to remove after the pictures made international news. Well, apparently they haven’t learnt much from that episode. This time they’ve published a picture of a Chinese student in blackface, standing rather awkwardly behind a flag of South Africa. This was snuck in as the last of a series of pictures taken during the Guizhou-Ireland Youth Culture Week. Maybe they were just hoping nobody would see the picture? Sneaky, Xinhua! Sneaky!
