We took the boy halloween shopping Friday. He is going to be a ghostbuster. My girl got stuff for her pirate ensamble, and I got this neato mask for $5.

It reminds me of some old clown cartoon from the 20s but I can't really place where I've seen it from. She thinks its rascist. Says it reminds her of people in blackface in old movies. I said if she wants rascist ill get the obama mask and dress like a terrorist. We've been arguing about it since Friday night.

Her friend says it looks like a good bank robbin' mask.

So if y'all can quit looking at schweddy balls for a minute,

Do you find this mask offensive?

Is she going to wear blackface makeup and be a Somali pirate?

Tell her it's racist to portray pirates as being white. :p

if it were black with white around its mouth I could see racist. with the color scheme I think its more "insane clown posse".

Why would that be offensive?! I see nothing racial about the mask and it looks like it's a bank robbin' mask or just a scary ass clown? Possible serial killer mask? Who knows. Anything but offensive though.

It's a take on the "agent of chaos" pic that spread the internet in conspiratories sites. Mainly Alex Jones types. I don't think it is racist to portray Obama as a clown, but the left jumped all ovwer that stance....of coarse.

Hm, I guess I'll have to add clowns to my diversity checklist.

That is not meant to be a racist mask, just a creepy clown. Not offensive at all. Wear it with some "blood-soaked" overalls to really creep people out.:twisted:

I think it is missing a swastika between those red brows.

seriously, it is Halloween, anything goes. even a good old clan hood.
