Usually, when someone is photographed in blackface, it sparks immediate backlash. But one German soccer team is being praised for altering its players' skin color.
Lower-division German team Deinster SV posted this team photo, featuring players with digitally darkened skin to show solidarity with a black player who was reportedly assaulted over the weekend.
The team's coach said Deinster SV player and Sudanese refugee Emad Babiker was verbally and physically assaulted on Easter.
