Beyonce in a Coat that Mocks A Minstrel Caricature?

IMG_1168

Beyonce was spotted during all-star weekend in this custom Khaki trench Coat. It was posted on a site and was asked about how people felt on this look.

Comments were pretty negative and stated that this was a disgrace due to the image on the front that people feel is an imitation of the minstrel caricature or “racial cartoons” from racial/slave days due to the big bulging eyes and thick red lips.

Is this a “fashionable” look? What comes to mind when you see this coat?
