Here's your friendly reminder that you shouldn't wear blackface on Halloween (or ever.)

A 5th grade teacher at the Chestnut Grove Elementary School in Alabama apparently didn't get this memo. He dressed up as Kanye West, complete with "Kanye for Prez 2020" sign.

Heath Morrow's wife Shannon posted the photo on Facebook with the caption: "Haha some people thought Heath was really a black man."

She's probably not laughing now.

Although the original post has been deleted, nothing is gone forever once posted on the Internet.

Sadly, instances of blackface appear every year on Halloween. Most notably, actress Julianne Hough went in blackface as "Crazy Eyes" from Orange is The New Black in 2013.

For those out of the loop, "Jigaboo" is an old and rarely-heard slur for people of color. You know, the kind of old ditty your more racist grandma might drop casually at Thanksgiving dinner. The anchor, former Miss USA winner Kristi Capel, later apologized for the statement saying that she didn't know that it was a "even a word."

Members of the neo-Nazi National Democratic party (NPD) in Germany were supposed to participate in a rally in Freiburg last Saturday.

Unfortunately (for them) the rally never happened, as they got on the wrong train and ended up in the city of Mannheim.

Their original train was overcrowded with soccer fans, so police forced them to take the next one. They failed to check the destination, however, before boarding.

“We didn’t miss them,” said the mayor of Freiburg.

These neo-Nazis aren’t exactly the brightest bulbs in the box.

Last year, the village of Wunsiedel turned an annual neo-Nazi march into a fundraiser supporting an anti-Nazi group called EXIT-Germany, and the neo-Nazis had no clue.
