Nah it's like black face & dudes fake beard. Sure there can be black western Europeans but none with Rasputin's facial hair. Which was comically over exaggerated.

It's probably more cultural appropriation than racism.

Rasputin was an Eastern European, and this song is a meme so it has no hateful intent.

Russia is eastern European/Asiatic.
Also, it is not racism.
This one is awesome:

In a perfectly normal and functional world where people had a common sense, probably not.

But in a reality where people are offended and are insulted by every tiny little bit of the most trivial things, then definitely no, because only white people can be racist.

Just as racist as Western European impersonating a black man, I guess.

Whether it means "it's totally racist" or "it's not racist at all" is up to you.

If this is even implied racism then I guess the definition has changed.

It’s 2018. That means the fact that you ask “is it racist” makes you racist.

Black people don’t have the power to be racist so no.

It's only racist when white people do it.

Ik man, it’s hard being white out in this world. The police are always harassing us, there’s tons of income inequality. We’re not making any money, we’ve been oppressed for so long, and I definitley don’t feel this way because someone said mean things about white people on twitter.

Yeah looks a lot like black face to me. I dunno, it’s always less serious when black people are the ones doing stuff like this.
