Would You Let Your Child Wear a KKK Costume for Halloween?

Every year kids’ Halloween costumes seem to more resemble what should probably be adult costumes. Even so, for years children have dressed up like Satan, demons, murderous movie characters, vampires, pirates, wicked witches, etc. In recent years there were news reports of sensual costumes for little girls – is that even possible? This year, there are reports that one popular costume is based on a celebrity musician made popular by her shocking stage acts.

Of course, there are more innocent, fun and silly costumes too. Yet, all kinds of costumes exist that represent immorality, evil, lewdness, death, etc. They all exist in the name of Halloween for a night of free candy and harmless fun. (And profit, of course, for certain retailers.)

That said, would you let your child have his or her Halloween fun the way the mother in the video below did by letting her son dress as a member of the KKK? Since Halloween is about dressing up for fun and pretending for a night, what in your worldview would allow you to either let or forbid your child from dressing as a KKK member?


For the record, I would never allow my child to wear such a costume!
