Black Face?


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A second-grader at Meridian Ranch Elementary school in Colorado Springs was pulled out of class on Wednesday for painting his face black. Sean King dressed up as Martin Luther King, Jr. for a class project. “It was wax museum day for the second-graders and each one dressed up as a historical figure they were assigned,” said Sean’s mother, Michelle King-Roca. The principal asked Sean to wash off his face, but he didn’t understand why. “They thought it was inappropriate and it will be disrespectful to black people and I say it’s not. I like black people. It’s just a costume and I don’t want to insult anybody,” said Sean. A member of the school’s PTA, who was also a parent participating in the class project, said a group of parents inside the classroom agreed that it was ridiculous for the school to ask Sean to wash his face. “I’ve never seen anything like this happen before. I’ve always been extremely proud of the school and where we live. I have two boys here. I’m extremely disappointed. If my own son, who is blonde, was chosen to do Martin Luther King, Jr., I would have gotten him a black wig and painted his face too,” said Pam Page.

Sorry but this little kid dressed as Martin Luther King Jr. in black face is hilarious.  It’s innocent, ironic and damn funny.  Let him go.
