Photos give to TIME magazine show Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wearing “brownface” at a party in 2001.
Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister, wore brownface makeup to a party at the private school where he was teaching in the spring of 2001. TIME has obtained a photograph of the incident.
The photograph has not been previously reported. The picture was taken at an “Arabian Nights”-themed gala. It shows Trudeau, then the 29-year-old son of the late former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, wearing a turban and robes with his face, neck and hands completely darkened. The photograph appears in the 2000-2001 yearbook of West Point Grey Academy, a private day school where Trudeau was a teacher.
Earlier this month, TIME obtained a copy of the yearbook, The View, with the photograph of Trudeau in brownface from Vancouver businessman Michael Adamson, who was part of the West Point Grey Academy community. Adamson was not at the party, which was attended by school faculty, administrators and parents of students. He said that he first saw the photograph in July and felt it should be made public.

Trudeau: “I didn’t consider it racist at the time, but now we know better.”
A victim of the ‘progressive’ retroactive purity test, the rules to which are updated daily with no one being able to keep up with them.

I will defend Justin here. It is insane to me that people are digging up simple mistakes people made and trying to destroy them over this.
All I will say is I hope Trudeau takes note of this outrage from a 18-year-old picture. He should stop being a virtue-signaling bloviator and stand up for himself and others who are bullied.
