Australian Aboriginal mum defends whitening her kid's face

The Australian Aboriginal mum who whitened her child's face for a fancy dress event says it is fine for kids to "white-up" or "black-up".

Breeze Bee, a mother-of-four, says she posted the images to counter the social media storm after a boy dressed up for a school event as his hero, Aussie rules player Nic Naitanui. The young boy is white, while Nic Naitanui is of Fijian heritage.
