kid paints his face black to look like MARTIN LUTHER KING JR

A boy, who painted his face black to dress up like Martin Luther King Jr for a class project, was taken out of school after his headteacher said it was offensive.

Sean King, a white second grade student at Meridian Ranch Elementary in Colorado Springs, was asked to remove the makeup because it was deemed ‘disrespectful to black people’ I hope this isn't a repost. I did a search and didn't find anything.
