I agree with needing more pics of the wife.
Do you know the history of blackface? There is nothing funny about it. It has every intention to offend and demean. When someone paints themselves in blackface they are fully aware of what they are doing.
To be honest, I'm not sure if people outside of NT know about the history of blackface. If it weren't for NT I wouldn't know about it, and I still don't .

I don't really need to wait for more details to realize that this person is a racist or at the very least has racist tendencies
When I see someone dressed as blackface, I don't assume their doing it with bad intentions, unless they're portraying Trayvon or Mike Brown, or one of the other good kids that have been lost due to trigger happy idiots in this world. If someone dresses up as Trayvon, that would really piss me off.
At the same time, if I or a a white friend were dressing up as Eazy E for Halloween, there would also be no need for painting my face black. The Locs, Raiders hat, flannel and wig should be enough to get the costume across .
