White Canadians with KKK uniform, noose, and blackface win Halloween costume prize.

A person wears a white cone with eyeholes on his head, and a Confederate flag is draped over his shoulders. He leads a White Caucasian man wearing black makeup on his face and hands, who is wearing a plaid shirt.

KKK costume shocks Ont. town (2010):

The Royal Canadian Legion ordered its Campbellford, Ont., chapter to close while police are investigating a complaint that a person in Ku Klux Klan robes led a man in blackface with a rope around his neck and won first prize at its Halloween party.

The photo above was taken by Mark Andrade, a black man, who recounts the incident:

“A guy in a Ku Klux Klan uniform, Confederate flag attached to the back, with a hood on, was holding a rope. And on the end of the rope was a guy in blackface, and the rope was really a noose around his neck,” he said.

He left right away and then later found out that the duo won first prize at the costume competition.

(This is worse than last year: White Toronto students in blackface win Halloween costume prize.)

    That’s really bad. You need Al ‘n’ Jesse. They would organize a national boycott of Campbellford, insist that the two guys be fired from their jobs, charge them with hate crimes and bus in a few hundred demonstrators to trash the entire town.

    The Ontario Provincial Police are now looking into it, and it sounds like they’ve been reprimanded by the Legion higher-ups. http://www.thestar.com/news/article/885090–opp-to-probe-kkk-halloween-costume?bn=1 But yeah, this is 2010 – what the fuck? I’m not shocked that some douchebags came dressed that way (I’ve lost too much of my naive faith in humanity to be surprised) but I’m disgusted that they won a prize, which shows other people at the event supported it.

    The costume was obnoxious. But no more than what I’ve seen demonstrated by the AntiRacists TM on this blog.

    You feign “moral outrage” and “indignation” here but if you had the chance you would love to lynch my impudent Black ass and hang my testicles up to dry, wouldn’t you White boy?

    Ooo, exciteable.
    Sorry, but your black ass is not that important to me, and I am profoundly uninterested in your gonads. Your mind is riddled with defunct stereotypes, Afro. It could be from all that obsessing over your precious “oppression”. Believe it or not, for most whte folks, the universe doesn’t revolve around you.
    My point was that if only you had a pair of professional racial opportunists like Al ‘n’ Jesse in Canada they could punish those horrible white people in Campbellford with the proper magnitude of overkill. Sarcasm, dear.
    By the way, I’m not a boy. “Sam” is not just short for Samuel.

    I kind of like “white troll”.
