Leader Apologizes for Racist Photo

Canadian leader Justin Trudeau is apologizing following the publication of a yearbook photo showing him in brown-face makeup at a 2001 "Arabian Nights" theme party at the school he taught at.

Time magazine published the photo yesterday.

Trudeau also acknowledged wearing blackface once in college. This photo surfaces as Trudeau is in the middle of a re-election campaign.

The Prime Minister said it was a racist photo, but he didn't think it was racist at the time.

"I shouldn't have done it. I should have known better, but I didn't," Trudeau told reporters.
