As many of you have seen lately (and have been disgusted by), white people are having the audacity to wear “Black face” as costumes. Personally, it makes my blood boil and if these people get punched because a person of color is offended, well, they had it coming. People are getting fired of this, yet each year there are more racist strutting around in Black face. Let me be the first to say I don’t care about you losing your job over wearing Black face. Being Black is not a costume. Quit throwing around your racist stereotypes.
These weak ass apologies are the worst. Here’s the apology from Heath Morrow (pictured above as Kanye), who is a fifth grade teacher at Chestnut Grove Elementary School in Decatur, Alabama.
In this lame apology letter, he claims to “not see color,” yet here he is in a photo wearing Black face. I’m disgusted. They try to make you think that they don’t know any better. They will also say, “I have a Black friend.” I get so tired of hearing this statement. JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE A BLACK FRIEND DOES NOT MEAN YOU GET A FREE PASS TO DO RACIST SHIT! Whew! I had to get that off of my chest.
As this goes on every year, I see that White people just don’t give a f*ck. In truth, what are the consequences they face for wearing Black face or being racist in public? A few people may come up to them and say it’s wrong. They don’t care because 50 more will pat them on the back. They may get fired, but more than likely will get hired somewhere else in the same field. We have to make it difficult for them. I don’t want a person like Heath Morrow any where near my child or anyone else’s child. There should be harsher punishments for people who do this. Black face should be an automatic dismissal from your job. If you’re a professional, such as a police officer or teacher. You should not be able to get a job in that field again. If you’re a student in college, you should either be expelled or suspended. The point is there should be severe consequences. We have to power to fight racism. I encourage you to come together and speak out against racism. If we don’t, then things like this will keep happening.
