It's not at all racist. The kid is totally right, he's dressed up as a historical figure, including his facial colour, he's not being racist or nasty about it. He's representing a great figure in black history too!

Because we all know that one person complaining is equal to 1,000 people that are actually upset.

I have a dream that school children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their costume's makeup but by the dignity with which they portray their assigned character.

As a said in an earlier topic where a bunch of white women dress up like black women, it's not about how you dress up but how you act when dressed up.
If this boy had given the Sportpalast speech now THAT would have been offensive.
As a matter a fact this boy did the opposite of racist, he dressed up as a figure that was looked down upon by most of the white community at that time. By doing so he did the same thing as Kennedy did when he said 'ich bin (ein) Berliner'.
The boy, like Kennedy, places himself amongst the oppressed to stand with them. Not to belittle them.
If people fail to see the difference between making fun of and standing with someone, they fail in life. Especially if you are a teacher.

how is that racist, it isn't black face in the sense that he is making fun of black people. he does a costume. do you not put face paint on for any other costume. I don't see why anyone should be offended by this unless they themselves are racist.

ignorance of why something is racist doesn't mean its NOT racist.

It's not the kids fault. The child cannot possibly understand the ramifications of "black face" . It's his fail parents.

Quick! Quick! Somebody spotted a racism! Get out the big hammer!

I presume that now no kids will ever have makeup applied to their faces to play Indians for Thanksgiving pageants, there will be no more Chinese Dance in The Nutcracker, and so on.

I full well understand the racism behind 'black face', that being said, this kid wasn't singing "Swanee" like Al Jolson. He was given the assignment and did his best to fulfill it.

Was sure it would be offensive before seeing the video but the kid glows with the innocence of a kid. Reminds me of the South Park episode were Kyle and Stan wanted to keep the South Park flag and did not even realize the "real issue over it.

I totally agree @davymid. It's amazing how many people actually believe the school is at fault.

It's not like he had pitch black facepaint on with bright red lips and kept saying OH LAWDY and talking about his Mammy. There's nothing offensive about this.

I would love for this family to file a lawsuit against the principal for making them miss work to come to the school because their son was doing his school project.
