“Blacked-up” children though?!?!

Via Telegraph UK:

Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, found herself standing next to children with blacked-up faces during a carol service. The German leader joined a group of a carolers for Three Kings’ Day on the steps of the chancellery but raised eyebrows when several of the children appeared in blackface.

Traditionally, one of the kings appears with a darkened face as the groups go door-to-door singing carols. Mrs Merkel’s difficulties were added to by news that her coalition partners, the Free Democrat Party (FDP), were sinking in the polls and may not gather enough votes to remain in Parliament.

Wow. What is wrong with this picture?!?!?!
