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.)
