“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.

Hot Or Bothered: Fashion At The 2017 American Music Awards

Published

The night music fans have been waiting for is finally here! The 45th American Music Awards went down right Sunday night at Microsoft Theater in L.A. and a host of your favorite stars hit the red carpet in some looks that were hot and some that had us bothered … let’s start with the hot!

The evening’s host Tracee Ellis Ross sparkled and shined in this burgundy sequined Stella McCartney gown. We’re  sure her mother Diana Ross inspired this look.

Meanwhile her  sister-in-law Ashlee Simpson Ross dazzled in a sparkly number by Christian Siriano.

And of, the evening’s Lifetime Achievement Award winner and honoree – Diana Ross proved why she’s a music and fashion icon in this black gown and hat.

 

Selena Gomez showed off her killer bod wearing a Coach leather minidress and brand new platinum hair.

Also killing it in an LBD – that’s leather black dress, was Ciara wearing Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture. Ok Ciara!

 

Demi Lovato looked like a goddess in this black sheer strapless gown by Ester Abner.

 

And, Kelly Rowland gave us grecian vibes in this velvet gown with embellished bodice.

But the look that stole the show  DJ Khaled’s son Asahd, looking super adorable in his tiny black suit and Gucci loafers that cost a whopping $275. That’s what we call winning at 1 year old.

But someone whose look was not winning … Nick Cannon. We’re not sure why he was dressed like a Bratz doll, but he needs to stop.

Sadly we also have to request that whoever dressed Pink in this awful tulle Monique Lhuillier dress be fired immediately. Sorry we love you Pink but this dress was a hot damn mess.
