One of my closest friends posted a picture of herself which involved her cosplaying with a few friends. One of these friends was dressed up as a drow, full-on Señor Chang style.

Holy Blackface Batman.

Seriously, what the fuck people?

I'm trying to decide whether to say anything. She was in a completely unrelated costume, but still. To make things more complicated, I moved away a couple years ago, and I've been dealing with the fact that we're never going to be as close as we once were. To make things worse, said offending friend has sort of been my replacement, and the two of them are inseparable. I think if she was to choose between the two of us it wouldn't be me, and I'm already dealing with the pain of moving away from my best friend of years and years.

But back to the blackface thing. I'm out of the cosplaying loop so maybe I'm over-reacting, but is this a common thing? It doesn't help that both of them are white and I'm not. Just what the hell? Maybe it's some meta comment on blackface (they're both a good 5 years younger than me, and still in school finishing up their BFAs), but I don't get it.

Any Suggestions?
