The leader of an Apache tribe in Arizona has apologized for dressing up as Bob Marley for Halloween and painting his face dark, calling the costume a “poor choice.”
In a picture posted online, San Carlos Apache Chairman Terry Rambler wears dreadlocks, a Marley T-shirt and face paint while flashing a peace sign. He now says he did not mean to offend anyone but realizes he did.
“I will continue to ask my Creator for forgiveness, as I am not perfect, but I realize asking for forgiveness means not repeating the action,” he wrote on his Facebook page.
Arizona civil rights activist Jarrett Maupin said Rambler made a mockery of black people with the costume. Maupin said it’s hypocritical for Rambler to portray a black man while opposing the Washington Redskins mascot.
