What Are You Dressing Up as This Year? A Nazi or a Klansmen?

by Mark Wynn

Look at the difference between dressing as a Klansman as a joke and dressing as a Nazi as a joke? Dressing as a Klansman is open to analytical debate. How many arguments have you heard justifying dressing like a Nazi? How much control do black Americans have in American politics? It's a rhetorical joke. How many Nazis terrorized American communities and murdered your neighbors? Maybe if Hollywood bludgeoned you over the head every 2 years with a Klan movie starring Tom Cruise you would have a better knee jerk reaction when the Klan was mentioned. But for that to happen Hollywood would have to serve something other than their own interests. You don't see too many apartheid movies do you? I wonder why...
