Mom who allowed her seven-year old son to dress up like a KKK member for Halloween faces angry backlash

Sometimes, mother really doesn't know best.  The mom of a seven-year old boy from Virginia dressed him up for Halloween night in a Ku Klux Klan costume.

Jessica Black, from Craigsville, says her little boy, Jackson who is seven actually asked if he could also dress as a member of the white supremacist group, so she decided to make him the costume.

Ms Black says it's a 'family tradition'.

'My brother dressed up as a member of the KKK when he was in Kindergarten and when he was 13,' said Ms Black.

A reporter from WHSV asked the little Jackson why he decided to wear the controversial costume but it was clear from his answer that he did not know the historical signifiance of the outfit or how offensive the clothing can be.

His mother didn't appear to know any better, justifying her actions by pointing the blame squarely in her sons' direction.


Paying homage to a Democrat organization is definitely offensive

Yes, i can see why depicting a Demoncrat would be offensive to many.

I think this is funny.
IF you didn't realise this costume would cause some outrage you've been living under a rock.
Apparently you can't even offend American cultural taboos if you live in other countries which have no such taboos!
