Oh. My. God. We thought StrollerDerby’s Jeanne Sager was kidding when she said she’d run across a Christian bookstore web site hawking Ku Klux Klan T-shirts for children. Yes, really. “I’m vacillating between speechless and spitting with venom,” Sager writes. “I’ve got to wonder, honestly, what Klan Kids Kare about. I was thinking Lynching, but according to the t-shirt, they ‘kare’ about loving Jesus, white power and their heritage. Note to the Klan: Jesus lived in the Middle East – it’s highly unlikely that his skin was white. And he certainly wasn’t Aryan.”
Naturally, we went madly Googling to see and yep, Arkansas-based Christian Books and Things sells an entire line of “Knights” shirts – yes, those knights, the ones in white sheets – including one that proclaims “I Want You” above a KKK member pointing, Uncle Sam-like, and another that reads, “The Original Boyz in the Hood” with yes, boys in klan hoods. All available in children’s sizes 2/4, 6/8 and so on, to fit your little budding bigot. Unbelievable.
