KID CAUSES TROUBLE DRESSED AS MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. [VIDEO/PHOTO]

A well-meaning second grader in Colorado ran into trouble when he came to school for a history project dressed as Martin Luther King Jr. . . .complete with ‘black face’. 

A Colorado Springs boy was ordered by his Elementary school principal to wash off the black face he put on as part of an Martin Luther King, Jr. costume he was told to wear. MLK was the historical figure eight-year-old Sean King was assigned as part of a “wax museum day” project. He was to present himself to the class dressed as the civil rights leader. But before he had a chance to enter the classroom, Sean’s principal told him he had to take off the black face, allegedly because a faculty member expressed discomfort. “As a parent I think it’s pretty sad that you’ve got a principal and a faculty member that are acting the way they are when they should be setting an example for children,” said Sean’s mother Michelle King-Roca. A spokeswoman for the school later said others had also complained about the face paint, which she claimed was in violation of the school’s dress code.

    Without the black makeup he would only have had the mustache. What’s worse, dressing up in black makeup, or giving an MLK presentation looking like Hitler?

    The irony is that the people that are racists are the ones that had a problem with it.

    Why is everyone so sensitive. The educators need to quit worry about dumb issues like this one and try to educate our children so we can have a future for this country.
