http://www.vladtv.com - Affion Crockett shares why Robert Downey Jr.'s blackface in "Tropic Thunder" felt wrong to him, explaining that for many years, blackface was something that held Black people back. He adds that there was never an equal reversal for White people, so when Nick Cannon got backlash for posing in whiteface, Affion felt it wasn't the same. Speaking more on "Tropic Thunder," the "A Haunted House 2" actor says that he was confused why an actor was being portrayed in blackface, and was perplexed as to why no groups called for shutting down filming or brought attention to the situation.
