Halloween is over, but the controversy surrounding a child’s costume in Virginia is lingering.

A seven-year-old boy in Craigsville dressed as a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

It’s causing a stir in the town — and his mother is defending the costume.

Jessica Black says dressing as a k-k-k member for halloween is a family tradition.

Her brother did it when he was in kindergarten and again when he was 13.

When her son, Jackson, asked her if he could also dress as a member of the white supremacist group, she made him the costume.

The boy says he learned about such a costume from the movie “fried green tomatoes.”
