Use plenty of cocoa butter to protect your skin, Ms. Baez

Reason magazine's Ronald Baily witnessed one of the weirder reactions to the election at a Joan Baez concert:

. . . the most remarkable and disturbing episode occurred halfway through the concert when Joan stopped singing and announced that she had "multiple personalities." One of her multiple personalities is that of a fifteen year old poor black girl named Alice from Turkey Scratch, Arkansas. Baez decided to share with us Alice's views on the election. Amazed and horrified I watched a rich, famous, extremely white folksinger perform what can only be described as bit of minstrelsy—only the painted on blackface was missing.
