It is a terrible film, but...

The Loan Arranger stars Johnny Depp as Tonto, an Injun.

He paints his face and looks like this[^]

This is seen as acceptable, a White Man painting his face to play a Potawatomi.
(Rather than getting a Native American to play the role).

Had Depp wanted to make a film about, say, Robinson Crusoe and he played Friday, would he have Blacked Up like this[^]

Odd that racism has so many flavours where it is seen as acceptable to Red Up, but not Black Up.
