“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.
Tiffany Haddish’s Hilarious Speech At Model Chanel Iman’s Wedding
Tiffany Haddish is one helluva lively and colorful human; so it’s not exactly shocking that she turned what would be considered a traditional wedding speech into a whelp … Haddish speech.
Just one night before hilariously taking the stage at the Oscars alongside Maya Rudolph, the Girls Trip star delivered an epic speech at the wedding of model, Chanel Iman, and New York Giant star, Sterling Shepard.
Although giving a seemingly witty speech, she also made an appoint to talk about how special her relationship was with Chanel, whom she met on the set of Mad Families. “I knew you could take care of any man you decided to take care of and I’m glad you decided to take care of that one cause I can see his soul,” Tiffany said, according to Brides.com.
The actress continued, “I looked into his eyeballs when you brought him to the comedy club. That’s a good man….[To Sterling] You better worship the ground she walk on cause she’s got a gangster ass bitch that got her back. Sorry, pastor!”
Haddish then went on to give some important advice. “Make sure y’all have fun together,” she said. “I ain’t that old, but I’m old, but I ain’t that old. But I’ve seen things. From my observation, the relationships that last the longest are the relationships where you have fun. You are going to have your ups and your downs, but find time to have fun.”
According to Chanel, the two grew close on set, mainly because they wound up sharing a trailer together. “During filming, I didn’t have a trailer so she was kind enough to share hers with me,” Chanel told Brides.com. “So for a month, we were sharing a trailer and going over lines together. We laughed, we cried, we bonded. She’s like a big sister to me.”
Chanel and Sterling exchanged vows in front of their close family and friends on March 3 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
