We shouldn’t have to say it, but changing your skin color to that of another race is a big old no. Julianne Hough dressed as Orange Is the New Black’s Crazy Eyes in 2013 — complete with blackface.

PAULA DA: Really sad what our country is falling to. Regardless if you're Democrat or Republican, we should all want what is best for our country in the long-term--not just our pockets or power play at this particular moment.

We must have respectful, law-abiding, citizen-serving politicians that look at both sides of issues and find the best alternatives. Otherwise, we are doomed.
