French Police Officers Investigated After Throwing Racist 'Negro Party' With Full Blackface

We guess it's safe to say that systematic racism isn't just an American thing.

Some members of the French Police are currently under investigation after photos surfaced of officers wearing full blackface while throwing a "negro party".

The pictures were turned into authorities early last week when Claudy Siar, the former Interministerial Delegate for Equal Opportunities for overseas French, was alerted to the racist photos by a friend who noticed them on their Facebook page.

Claudy detailed first learning about the pictures to the French press, saying:

"Someone I know told me of the existence of these photos on the Facebook account of one of her friends. In my presence, she called this friend and told them she was shocked. The friend was taken by surprise and tried to play down what had happened, saying that they were just having fun with friends in private and that it was a 'negro party'.

Wow. It's bad enough to think donning blackface is funny, but to not even understand that it's offensive is just insane!

The photos were deleted shortly after being posted, but not after the damage had already been done.

Anti-racism organizations like the Conseil Représentatif des Associations Noires have already taken issue with the bigoted party, saying:

"If the police whose job it is to fight racism are too busy mocking blacks to defend them, it could be a good explanation as to why things aren't improving in this area."

That's pretty sound logic to us!

There have been no formal charges filed against any officers yet, but the pictures are pretty damning and we think there's very little chance of anyone denying how bad they truly are.

You can check out the offensive pictures (below), but be warned, they are extremely racist.

Diane Kruger, Sienna Miller, and Charli XCX attend amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS Gala!

Absolutely everyone was at amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS Gala in Cannes!

So it was no wonder Diane Kruger, Sienna Miller, and Charli XCX were all in attendance at Thursday's star-studded event.

Back from Versailles already, we're sad to say that Diane disappointed us with this feathered black mini dress!

Guess it's hard following up that gorge gown she wore just the day before, but she must have had so many other options!

Sienna, on the other hand, did go gold on the step-and-repeat… and absolutely killed it in her custom Ralph Lauren dress!

And because Charli really only ever wears black on the red carpet, we weren't surprised to see her in a slinky Vivienne Westwood number.

At least she knows what works for her!

Thoughts???

The actress sparkled in a sequined gold Jason Wu gown, which fittingly fell over her curves — and the thigh-high slit showcasing her black Gianvito Rossi sandals didn't hurt either!

Diane deserves all the gold stars for this stunning look, especially after her not-so-amazing outfit at the Met Gala only a couple weeks ago.
