Update: About that offensive Halloween costume in Chicagoland…
Who wins the prize for most offensive and politically incorrect?
You decide. I think the teenager in the Chicago 'burbs wins because he adds religion to the mix. And religion is the most offensive thing to the politically correct, unless it involves Islam, Satanism, or witchcraft, of course, which are never offensive.
From The Daily Mail (UK), a rare story that doesn't include photos of scantily-clad starlets and Victoria's Secret models:
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 sevevn 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. 'I did tell him that if you do it, you know there's going to be people talking about you. There's going to be people saying bad things about you when you do wear it,' she advised.
