Despite being the most watched television show in the world, with at least 700 million viewers every year, the Gala is primarily domestic entertainment for the Chinese. However, this year’s event, according to director Yang Dongsheng, could be the most “international" Gala ever. [Photo/Weibo account of CCTV]

There were many spectacular and entertaining performances in the show.  Unfortunately, the tone was ruined by the cringeworthy skit with African artists who were depicted in a racist manner, with one in blackface.  What the h*** was the director thinking by resurrecting racist African caricatures that were common in the USA's dark past?  CCTV should issue an apology for such an embarassment to African/Chinese friendship.
