WATCH: Mother Defends Son’s KKK Costume, Says Man Should Be With Woman

Dressing in the white sheets of hatred as a Ku Klux Klan member for Halloween is just a long-standing tradition for the ironically-named Black family in Craigsville, Virginia. 7-year-old Jackson Black says he found inspiration for his controversial costume while watching Fried Green Tomatoes (!) and he thought it was “cool.” (Maybe Jessica Tandy drag is no longer edgy.) After the costume rightly horrified other local parents and a local scandal began to brew, Jackson’s mother Jessica informed a local WHSV news reporter that she¬†didn’t see any harm, and noted her brother had dressed as a Klansman both in kindergarten and a few years later when he was 13. (Writer’s note: it’s unknown if her brother was still in kindergarten the second time he wore the costume.)

“It’s suppose to be white with white,” she tried to reason. “Black with black. Man with woman and all of that. That’s what the KKK stands for. The KKK every year, raises money to donate to the St. Jude’s.” Oh, OK, as long as they make a yearly charitable donation…

Mother of the year Jessica also revealed that she possessed the foresight to warn her young offspring that some people might not approve of the Black family’s belief in white supremacy.

“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,” said Jessica Black.

Somewhere Julianne Hough is still in hiding, but breathing a huge sigh of relief.

    by her logic, it should be white with white, black with black, and then… men with men, and women with women!

    none of this perverted “mixing of the sexes thing”.

    That poor kid. What a POS Mom.

    White people just need to be stopped.

    @parting glass: this isn’t about white people at all. it’s about stupid people. there’s a big difference. the stupidity gene doesn’t differentiate between skin colours. it affects all humans equally, though this particular variant it seems to be more prevalent further south.

    @parting glass:

    “Parting glass” act like you have more than a sixth grade education. “White people” are not the problem “racist white people” are the problem, just like racist black, asian, hispanic etc . are. I am black man, however I do not support ignorance, choose your words carefully.

    @MikeE: Hahaha right?! You can tell she hesitates cause she really wanted to say ‘men with men’ ;P

  • Rad


    How does that saying go? “When you’re dead, you don’t know you’re dead but everyone else does. The same can be said for when you’re stupid”.

    And this explains Governor Ultrasound winning his election.

    Fucking halfwit: “I dressed up my son as Adolf Eichmann for Halloween and he chased jewish kids around with a needle all day, it was a fucking riot”.

    “I dressed up my other kid as Milosevic and threw petrol bombs at a mosque, for a laugh, because after all what’s attempted genocide between friends?”.

    Idiots, get the fuck out of my gene pool.

    I wonder if his candy pail was a chick-fil-a bag.

  • the other Greg

    Maybe by next year he will have “learned about race” and will go in blackface?

    @Rad: Re: “Governor Ultrasound” (yikes, the polls aren’t THAT bad?), it’s strange but if you look into the history, the KKK used to hate Catholics too – especially Italians, who they considered “non-white.” So not only were they NOT donating to “the St. Jude’s” in those days, if they’d run into a Cuccinelli back in the ’20s they might have lynched him.

    The KKK also used to hate chain stores, which they considered a threat to “the Southern way of life.” Ironic nowadays with the Southern passion for all things Wal-Mart.

    @parting glass: “White people just need to be stopped.”

    Disclaimer: The views and opinions expressed by this crazy bitch are not those of all black people. She is speaking for herself and those people who think in line with the KKK. The majority of black people understand that insulting a whole race for what a few think IS WRONG.

  • DarkZephyr

    @parting glass: I agree that white people like *this woman* need to be stopped. But don’t lump all white people in with people like this woman. Thanks. To be honest, you sound just like her.

    @Shadeaux: Don’t worry, I know most black people aren’t like her just as not all white people are like the crazy bitch in the video. :)

    This is why I’m grateful for social media and the internet.

    A LOT of people try to pretend that this stuff isn’t out there anymore. And yet here it is.

    Also, it’s a PERFECT example of why the GOP has declared war on public schools. If these kids are homeschooled they ONLY have these parents giving them false lessons.

  • dirknerd

    @Cam: I tend to agree. However the sword cuts both ways and gives a forum for every crazy person to band together form groups and attack those who do not agree with them or think as they do. The use of social media is not an indication of intelligence and I am not altogether certain that it will foster change. A great way to vent though.

  • Chris

    After watching this clip all I could think of what were they thinking?

  • startenout

    Yeah, it’s gay people that will screw up their children. smh
