I was down south once, and I was invited to a costume party, and I rarely go to them, I went to one when I was younger. I went in my underwear shorts, and I have varicose veins. I went as a roadmap. And I figure, what the hell, it's Halloween, I'll go as a ghost. I take a sheet off the bed and I throw it over my head, and I go to the party. And you have to get the picture, I'm walking down the street in a deep southern town, I have a white sheet over my head. And a car pulls up and three guys with white sheets say "Get in". So I figure there's guys going to the party, as ghosts, and I get into the car, and I see were not going to the party, and I tell them. They say "Well, we have to go pick up the Grand Dragon". All of a sudden it hits me, down south, white sheets, the Grand Dragon, I put two and two together. I figure there's a guy going to the party dressed as a dragon.
All of a sudden a big guy enters the car, and I'm sitting there between four klansmen, four big-armed men, and the door's locked, and I'm petrified, I'm trying to pass desperately, y'know, I'm saying "Y'all" and "Grits", y'know, I must have said "grits" fifty times, y'know. They ask me a question, and I say "Oh, grits, grits". And next to me is the leader of the klan... you can tell he is the leader, 'cause he's the one wearing contour sheets, y'know. And they drive me to an empty field, and I gave myself away, 'cause they asked for donations, and everybody there gave cash. When it came to me, I said "I pledge fifty dollars". They knew immediately. They took my hood off and threw a rope around my neck, and they decided to hang me.
And suddenly my whole life passed before my eyes. I saw myself as a kid again, in Kansas, going to school, swimming at the swimming hole, and fishing, frying up a mess-o-catfish, going down to the general store, getting a piece of gingham for Emmy-Lou. And I realise it's not my life. They're gonna hang me in two minutes, the wrong life is passing before my eyes. And I spoke to them, and I was really eloquent, I said "Fellas, this country can't survive, unless we love one another regardless of race, creed or colour". And they were so moved by my words, not only did they cut me down and let me go, but that night, I sold them two thousand dollars worth of Israel Bonds.

2nd time this week I've seen that movie title.  What does it mean???

It means see it if you haven't!

Exactly.  And add "The Groove Tube" and make it a double feature.



Lol, here's the one scene I was talking about. Enjoy! (and imagine that kid in the KKK costume doing this one!)

MagSeven: Bonobo62: MagSeven: Bonobo62: Turbo Cojones: planes: Ok to dress up as the DEVIL on Halloweeen, but not as a klansman.  There is some logic there somewhere.

One is real, and one is not.

That doesn't explain anything. Why is it acceptable to dress up as a fictional evil, but not acceptable to dress up as a real evil?

Because people have to face real evil everyday. It's less close to home. Just the way it is. Also common sense.


Claiming "because common sense" is just argumentum ad populum, so let's look at "because people have to face real evil everyday."

How many of the complainers have to deal with the Klan every day?  What about costumes of other evil types? Those don't seem to elicit the same outrage.  Among the costumes I saw this year were an axe murderer and a drunk driver (there were also a fair number of "robbers" but most of them looked more like mimes, so I don't know if they count). Maybe it's because I live in the Pacific Northwest, but I've known more people who were killed by murderers and drunk drivers than by the Klan, but I still didn't get my panties in a wad over the costumes. Why are some evils acceptable and others not?  Is it the body count, or is it just a matter of political correctness?

Are you a professional dumb ass or just a gifted amateur. "Why are some evils acceptable and others not?" Probably the duration and severity of said evil. If I walked around Ground Zero in a burning towers outfit on 9-12-11, I'd probably catch a beating. If I did it last weekend, I might get a dirty look or two. Gee I wonder why that is? I don't care if people are upset at costumes. You asked why they might be. I gave a few reasons. You don't want to offend everyone? Don't wear something that might offend nearly everyone. It's not that complicated. Can't wear your klan outfit without causing a stir? I don't personally care, but boo farking hoo for you.


If you don't know, just say you don't know. There's no need to resort to insults to hide your ignorance.

I can agree with that. But, personal responsibility also rules and this mother doesn't seem to have that. Encouraging your child to dress in a costume that causes hurt or offense? Not terribly cool.


God forbid anyone might ever be offended by an image in this delicate, fragile society we've crafted.

Serious Post on Serious Thread: Fark_Guy_Rob: Serious Post on Serious Thread: Fark_Guy_Rob: 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.

People are free to do that. People are also free to call those people morons.

You're not really clear on how rights work, are you?

Whatever.

Sure - you can call them morons.  But, from the article:
Jessica Black says she has received several threats...

But please, do explain how rights work; because clearly I don't get it.

Well, you're right about one thing, you clearly DO NOT understand how rights work.

Freedom of Speech, is freedom from govt action curtailing your speech. So unless those threats were from a govt entity acting in its official capacity, she didn't have her free speech rights violated. She's a victim of a crime committed by a civilian (death threats being generally illegal after all). But her right to freedom of speech was not violated.

So there's your explanation as requested. If you still don't understand I'll try to come up with a coloring book version or something more suited to your intellectual capacity. Just don't eat the crayons please.



Not that death threats are good or productive, but he's clearly made the common mistake of confusing the "right to say what you will" with "no one else having the right to say what THEY will in response".

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

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.

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


Or a cop.
