Byzle Morgan’s head, neck and face are marked by racist tattoos. He also has a teardrop tattoo under his eye, which typically signifies that the person has killed someone, and a swastika in a clover under his other eye. But jurors saw none of that when he appeared in court this week because he had concealer covering them.
Each day a professional cosmetologist meets Morgan prior to the jury being brought into the courtroom and applies his makeup. It is then removed before he returns to the county jail.
Morgan is being charged with robbery after he allegedly stole a man’s motorcycle at gunpoint. He also faces the death penalty in a different case he is accused of killing a 75-year-old woman days before the robbery.
Too bad we can’t change the color of black defendants in order to protect them from the racial prejudices of the jury. #Hate it!
Demi Lovato Slams Taylor Swift For Giving Kesha Money Instead Of Vaguely Supportive Tweets
After a judge denied pop star Kesha’s request to sever her contract with Sony Music and her allegedly abusive producer, Dr. Luke, other music stars have rallied behind the singer. Taylor Swift was quick to join the cause, pledging this weekend to donate $250,000 to help fund Kesha’s ongoing legal battle.
Still, not everyone is impressed by Swift’s so-called “generosity.” Singer Demi Lovato took to Twitter Sunday nightto slam Swift for merely giving a quarter-million dollars to finance an expensive, ongoing legal case, when she could have made an actual impact by tweeting out a few vaguely supportive messages.
