Jessica Black States it’s A Family Tradition

How would you feel if you opened your front door of your home and saw a kid dressed up as a Klu Klux Klan member? Well apparently a lot of people in a Virginia neighborhood didn’t much like the idea of seeing a child dressed as a member of a known hate group disturbing their peace.

The parent who has been identified as Jessica Black (interesting last name right) decided that dressing up as spiderman or batman was just too boring so she allowed her son to to where the more controversial get up.


Halloween is over, but the controversy surrounding one child’s costume remains.

Neighbors were outraged to see the 7-year-old dressed up as a member of the Ku Klux Klan, but his family says the costume is seen as a family tradition.

The child said he wanted to wear the costume because “it looked cool,” after seeing it in the movie “Fried Green Tomatoes.”

His mother, Jessica Black, says there is nothing wrong with the costume, or the KKK, which still has a strong presence in their hometown of Craigsville, Virginia.

“I did tell him that, you know, 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.

Hmm, maybe she is only doing what she was taught as a child?
