I have to be honest- I’m not sure this is wrong.  So help me with this one.  A second grade student was asked to present a report on Martin Luther King, Jr.  Apparently, he took this assignment seriously because he showed up dressed in a suit, tie, white shirt, mustache and blackface. Yes, blackface.

The principal, teachers and some students were offended and little Sean King (no relation) was asked to remove the paint from his face.  His mom said no and removed him instead from the school.

Read the entire story here and watch the video and then tell us what you think.
