Blackface is racist…there’s no “trying” in it

Due to all of the backlash, Jaiah has decided to speak out about the situation. During a brief interview with Yahoo! News, Jaiah explained that she’s “not trying to be Nicki or use her as a costume in any way.” She even admitted that she has never even made an effort to look like Nicki and doesn’t believe she resembles her. “I just did my makeup as usual and posted my pictures and they blew up,” she said. “I think the dark hair combined with my tan and other facial features that make me look kind of ambiguous? I don’t know. My foundation shade has always been the same.”
