This is why Charles Knipp’s Shirley Q. Liquor character is so dangerous and why when rappers call Black women hos and bitches, they are opening the door for others to do the same.

One day before the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday Ohio Trooper Craig Franklin was photographed “‘in a handmade outfit, which resembles that worn by Ku Klux Klan’ members,” according to an anonymous letter someone sent to the Highway Patrol.

Franklin later told investigators that he made the outfit after a conversation about the holiday. He said he was inspired by comedian Dave Chappelle, who played a Black member (Clayton Bigsby) of the hate group during an episode of Chappelle’s Show.

But America doesn’t have a race problem.

Thanks Dave.
