“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.

No shade to CodeBlack Films, but it’s last flick, All Eyes On Me, was kind of a disaster. From the poor ratings and reviews, to stars like Jada Pinkett Smith and 50 Cent slamming the film, folks just weren’t feeling it.

But that may all change with their new movie Traffik. The action-packed thriller slated for theaters April 27, 2018 stars Omar Epps, Paula Patton and Laz Alonso, and it looks pretty darn good.

Peep the trailer below.

In the film, Brea (Paula Patton) and John (Omar Epps) are off for a romantic weekend in the mountains. Isolated at a remote estate, the couple are surprised by the arrival of two friends, another couple, Darren (Laz Alonso) and Malia (Roselyn Sanchez). Just when the weekend starts to get back on track, a violent biker gang turns up and begins to torment them. The foursome are forced to fight for their lives against a gang who will stop at nothing to protect their secrets.

The film is written and directed by Deon Taylor. Patton is also a producer.
