NEW YORK (AP) — A new posting of a 2016 segment of “The View” is drawing attention to co-host Joy Behar, who in it shows a photo of herself in costume as an African woman.

The 76-year-old did not mention the clip on Thursday’s show, one day after an editor for the entertainment website The Wrap tweeted the segment of Behar discussing a resurgence of curly hair.

Behar displayed a photo of herself with curly hair when she was 29. She says that the hair was her own and that she had dressed as a “beautiful African woman” for Halloween.

Co-host Raven-Symone asked whether she had tanning lotion on. Behar, an outspoken liberal, said she wore makeup “that was a little bit darker than my skin.”

Messages seeking comment were left with her agent and the ABC program.

Virginia’s governor and attorney general are being criticized for their use of blackface.

  1. Joy is a Jew and they are the closest race to blacks ( they might not want to acknowledge that) but Her hair is natural curls. I know lots of Jews who look black. Her skin tone is dark so she did not have to use a lot of make up. It is totally different then painting your face black and putting on red lips or white lips looking like a buffoon which is what these other people are doing.

    Racist Joy bayhore just happens to have her natural hair tightly permed? I think she is a racist, partly because she often projects her represed racism onto others. She must resign.

    Washington Examiner: In the 2016 clip, a photo of a younger Behar is displayed on the screen behind her. She says she was 29 and that the costume was for Halloween. She repeatedly says that the hair is natural and not a wig, and she admits that she had “makeup that was a little bit darker than my skin.” The photo of Behar depicts no apparent stereotypes denigrating American blacks, which is precisely what blackface does and why it is considered so offensive. Blackface, in its original form, required solid black face paint, exaggerated lips, and for the person dressed up to behave in a manner intended to mock the intellect of blacks. This was, sadly, a form of entertainment in the years during and immediately after the slavery era.xxxxxxxWhat Joy did was a Rachel Dolezal. If you don’t have a problem with Rachel using bronzer, you hypocrites shouldn’t have a problem with Joy. That Governor ain’t getting no pass with his racist self. If he didn’t send a message with the black face, the kkk outfit was the hammer. Come on coons, get back on your train before it leaves the station. Choo choo coons.

  7. Yet The Don is Racist LOL so far this week 4 prominent Liberal democrats have been caught in racist sex scandals with photos to prove it, but the closet photo I find of Trump in black face is a photo of Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson kissing his ass at some event years ago
