Costumes Worn by Principal, Coach Called Racist (Watch)

*A Louisiana middle school principal and a high school coach are under fire after attending a costume party in get-up that has been labeled racist.

Iota Middle School Principal Lee Ann Wall and her husband Jeptha Wall, who is a coach at Crowley High School, appear in the image, according to WTNH.

Their costumes are described as “People of Walmart.” Jeptha is sporting a red bandana around his waist with a gun tucked into his belt and money coming out of his pocket. In front of Lee Ann is a basket full of black and white baby dolls and a sign that read, “You wait on pay day, I be waiting for da first of da month!”

KLFY showed the photo to several people in Acadia Parish. They believe the costume choice crossed the line.

“Wow, okay. So what is she trying to depict? Somebody who’s on welfare? If that is what she was trying to depict that’s even worse.” Alan Honersucker told KLFY’s Dalfred Jones.

Nathan Kresge, who also lives in Iota said, “To make fun of people that just can’t afford a better way of life, to make fun of them? That’s just ridiculous!”

 

Penny Fontenot, who lives in Iota, says sometimes a costume is just that: a costume. “If they’re teaching your children right from wrong in the schools, what does a costume have to do with it?”

Fontenot believes it just looks like a couple of people having some halloween fun, “It’s no big deal, it’s a costume, So, let them enjoy themselves while they still can.”

Ellan Baggett, the Executive Director of Operations with the Acadia Parish School Board, says it was a private party, not school related. Bagget also said the school board has taken appropriate action, although she would not disclose what those actions were.
