His mom maintains there is nothing wrong with the costume or the Klu Klux Klan, which she says still exists in Craigsville.

Well there's yer problem

/Heh, Ms. Black is a white supremacist

I hope he washed his hands after that last cross burning.

As usual, the constitution means nothing to the Fark Libtard brigade. They just want to impede this poor, innocent child's first amendment rights!

No persecution like liberal intolerance!

What? Didn't you see the name?

It's cool. He's Black.
 
2013-11-02 01:11:55 PM
A new racist? Like Jesse J?
 
2013-11-02 01:12:06 PM
C ' mon now, that's still scary, right? right??

Do you know what's really, really sad?

I could see them using that.

Craigsville is 12 miles from my house. Believe me, this is not surprising at all for that 'town'.

Racism and poor parenting aside, that "article" was one of the most poorly written things I've read in a long time...
 
2013-11-02 01:16:11 PM
What's really sad is that the kid saw the Klan in the movie  Fried Green Tomatoes  (a lesbian love story), and somehow didn't get the impression that they were  the bad guys.

Well, at least she's honest that she's a massive racist.

They're Black so it's cool.

Well, it's no Dot Weems piece, but it gets the job done, yessir.

Humor is just about the best counter attack to racism and hateism.
Pulls the haters out of the shadow where you can properly mock them.
 
2013-11-02 01:19:51 PM
I haven't read the article or the thread, but how the fark does a little kid even know what the Klan is?
 
2013-11-02 01:20:31 PM
b...b...but the supreme court said that racism doesn't exist in america anymore, and that's why we don't need the voting rights act!
 
2013-11-02 01:20:55 PM
It would almost be understandable if the costume was supposed to be The Scariest Thing They Could Think Of.
Almost.
From the mother's comments, that child has a rough going of it as is - way to cast him into the international spotlight, mom.
 
2013-11-02 01:23:25 PM
If he came to my house I'd give him the "special" apple.
 
2013-11-02 01:23:49 PM
Both TFA and the video get the organization's name wrong.  "Ku," not "Klu."

So whats the big deal anyways? Some tart decides to dress her kid up like a ghost on halloween and suddenly she is a klan member? Sheesh I geuss next your going to tell me that the big burning T on the lawn means something different then time to leave.
 
2013-11-02 01:28:56 PM
Poor kid. I doubt any of the parents in that neighborhood are going to let their kids play with him now.

ongbok: Poor kid. I doubt any of the parents in that neighborhood are going to let their kids play with him now.


Oh, yes they will. Craigsville is the town that has a rebel flag flying on every other house (or trailer). Very rural. 12 miles from me one county over. Sigh...
 
2013-11-02 01:34:07 PM
Additionally, there are NO african american families in the town. It is very, very small. No stop light small.

And exactly what good would come from that? Jessica Black of Craigsville, VA seems pretty proud of being a supporter of a vile white supremecist group.  No, the only way to slut-shame a person like that is with peer pressure.  The Little Grand Dragon, Jackson Black of Craigsville, VA has some atrocious role-models, and the saddest part is that he will never know it unless someone tells him. He in turn could perhaps help his mother, Jessica Black of Craigsville, VA to overcome her obvious mental issues.

Ok to dress up as the DEVIL on Halloweeen, but not as a klansman.  There is some logic there somewhere.

I dunno what so awful. I think it's a pretty bad-ass costume

I wish we'd stop biatching about what kids dress up as for Halloween.

 It's Halloween, you could complain about *any* costume, because pretty much any costume is going to have some seriously negative social aspects to it depending on the group you're with.

Well considering the devil can't actually be blamed for horrible or evil things (religious people might believe he did, but no actual evidence of it). On the other end, we have tons of evidence and proof that the KKK is a horrible group who have done atrocious things the past (and may still continue to do so).

Pretty easy to figure out actually.

I haven't seen the movie but I'm guessing the kid saw the movie with his parents and saw that the KKK were against those "evil lesbians" as the kids parents probably taught him.

If you're going to dress up as a monster for Halloween, hard to find something more monstrous than a klansmen.
 
2013-11-02 01:53:51 PM
Personally, I think it's hilarious. Free speech rules.

It's a southern housewarming party.

At a certain younger age range, most kids obviously admire their parents - no matter how f--ked up they are.  They don't see them as unemployed anti-social losers or people with nutty beliefs.  Kids will be told by their parents that everyone is against their family/group and they have a special status in life.  It's like kids in cults or other fringe groups and they believe it. Why not - everyone does seem to be against them.

Only maybe in their teens is when they start to question it all.  Like those teenage/early 20 something "defectors" from the Westboro Baptist Church.  Or that formerly white supremecist teenage twin singers - forgot their name.

So, bottom line, I'm not sure what influence you or anyone else would have on a primary school age kid.

So, no dressing up as a pirate or soldier, then, got it...

Which one of these two things is something we can prove actually exists?

Looks like one could be considered evidence of the other.
 
2013-11-02 02:12:24 PM
People should be free to dress up like as Klan members any day of the year.  Same with Nazis, NBA players, confederate soldiers, etc, etc.  Whatever.
