School pulls boy from class for black face costume
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — A white Colorado second-grade student who wore black face paint as part of a Martin Luther King costume has drawn criticism from school officials.
Sean King was pulled out of class Wednesday after donning the makeup for a project requiring students to dress up as a historical figure.
The Colorado Springs boy said he was trying to honor the slain civil rights leader. His parents knew about his costume and came to watch the presentations.
School officials “thought it was inappropriate and would be disrespectful to black people, but I say that it’s not, I like black people,” the 7-year-old King told KRDO-TV ( http://bit.ly/KqIxqM ).
A new twist in the face paint controversy over a white Meridian Elementary second grader wearing black face to portray Dr. Martin Luther King Junior. Sean King was doing it for a school project.
I talked with Steve Klein from The King Center in Atlanta. This is an organization founded by Dr. King’s wife, Coretta Scott King. It’s literally all things Dr. King. Klein told me, “Sean seems to be a decent kid who wanted to honor Dr. King in some way. I think it would be good for the young man to understand and his family to also understand why there are still people who are offended by black face worn by white people.”
