Frosty Don't Play That

>Sigh. It looks like Idaho may never rid itself of its reputation as a haven for white separatists thanks to national press like this headline today from Huffington Post: "Idaho Snowman Shaped Like KKK Member Appalls Local Residents."

The story reports on one North Idaho resident who built a hooded snowman in his front yard with a noose hanging from one frosty arm.

So far the post has garnered almost 1,400 comments and numero uno reads, "As a black dude ... I can tell you that this is actually kinda funny on some strange Chapelle show kind of way. I'm not offended."

Though there's a good deal of serious interaction among commenters about racism and just how offensive the snow man is or is not, here's some good advice from one poster: "My reaction to this would be to drop this guy off in Watts (or other 'urban' neighborho­od) dressed in the hood, robe, and noose he seems so passionate about. The over/under on soiling his pants has been set at 15 minutes."
