Global News Canada obtained a video of progressive Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in blackface, a third instance of racist dress to surface in just a 12-hour period.
The video of Trudeau in blackface is from the early 90’s.
The video, obtained exclusively by Global News, shows Trudeau covered in what appears to be dark makeup and raising his hands in the air while laughing, sticking his tongue out and making faces. He’s wearing a white T-shirt, and his jeans are ripped at the knees. It appears as though his arms and legs are covered in makeup as well.
It does not appear the video was shot at the same time and place as the other photos of Trudeau in racist makeup.

Trudeau apologized to the press last night for his lapse in judgement.
It all started Wednesday night when a photograph of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau dressed in brownface at a 2001 “Arabian Nights” party surfaced.
The photo, obtained by Time Magazine, shows the Prime Minister wearing the inappropriate costume at an event held by West Point Grey Academy, the private school where he was teaching at the time.
Trudeau is wearing a turban and robes with his face and hands covered in dark makeup in the yearbook photo, which was provided to Time by Vancouver businessman Michael Adamson.
A second photo surfaced on Wednesday night of Justin Trudeau in blackface in a talent show at Jean Brebeuf high school.
Trudeau is singing Day-O.
