with his face painted. He had been down at the Children's Museum for a "thanksgiving" field trip. I have no idea what went on down there, or who was leading the 'educational' activity but I was pretty sure that Braden didn't really learn anything very accurate about Native Americans by slapping 'war' paint on.
I sent out a question on facebook to see if painting ones face like this was akin to blackface. The answer I received was that if it is done with good intentions then it was NOT like blackface.... I am not too convinced.
