Andre Agassi dressed as Mr. T this Halloween, complete with the mohawk, gold chains and appropriate level of melanin. The tennis great's costume was thankfully captured by his old coach and friend, Darren Cahill (Agassi is posing with Cahill's wife), and posted on Twitter.
To those of you who want to make a big deal out of the fact that Agassi used makeup to darken his skin: This picture was taken two days after Agassi raised $26.1 million for his charter school; the one that aims to represent underserved communities and gives college scholarships every year to deserving students, most of whom happen to be African-American. If Andre Agassi is racist, then I'm Steffi Graf.
To make up for that buzzkill of a paragraph (which is sadly necessary given the comments that often flood my inbox), here are two pictures of the aforementioned star of "D.C. Cab" and "Rocky III" from the 1980s:
