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!
