I disagree. The significant use may be harmful, which is subject to change, but the meaning is still the same. It's makeup to make you look black.

There is a bit of semantic confusion here and I may have not articulated it as well as I should, but blackface is unlike a word in that it does have an inherent meaning: portraying blackness. What...
