Backlash emerges at parents who allowed child to dress as Klansman for Halloween

A Craigsville, Va., woman's nonchalant reaction has sparked additional outrage after she allowed her 7-year-old son to dress for Halloween in the robes of a Ku Klux Klan member.


Jessica Black of Craigsville told WHSV in Virginia that there's nothing wrong with the costume or the Ku Klux Klan. "It's suppose to be white with white. Black with black. Man with woman and all of that."

A photo of her son was posted to the television station's Facebook page by a viewer, leading to public concern. Black says she's received threats via Facebook as a result.
