White Teacher Apologizes For Kanye West Blackface Costume

Published

“I have never seen color in my life” says the Decatur elementary school teacher under fire for doing a blackface version of Kanye West in a Halloween photograph. Heath Morrow released an apology letter for the offensive costume, writing, “I would like to say that everyone who knows my character and knows my heart, knows that I have never seen color in my life.”

In the flick, Marrow is shown wearing a backwards baseball cap, jeans, blazer and sunglasses with a sign reading: “Kanye for Prez 2020.” This is the fifth grade teacher’s attempt to justify his decision while simultaneously apologizing for it:

“I would like to first apologize for my error in judgement, but my intentions were not malicious or directed toward any certain group of people. I would like to say that everyone who knows my character and knows my heart, knows that I have never seen color in my life. I wasn’t raised or taught that way and do not raise my children that way. I see people for who they are, and my wife and I go out of our way to help anyone we can in my profession as an educator. When deciding to dress up for a Halloween party, my wife and I made a decision based on celebrities and the political climate today. I do not want this to reflect on my school or school system based on a poor decision that I made. Again I apologize and this will not happen again. “

When will White people learn that blackface isn’t cool? Every year this nonsense happens, the person who does it is shamed publicly and ridiculed, and then issues a lazy apology. Just stop doing it already. It wasn’t funny back when D. W. Griffith did it in Birth of a Nation and it isn’t funny now.
