Context, context, context (I'm beginning to feel like I'm banging my head against a wall here):

Wearing a KKK costume in Switzerland at fasnacht does not mean that one is a racist. In this case from 2019, it turns out, it did. But that picture from 1927 proves nothing other than the fact that people have been wearing silly costumes at fasnacht for a very long time.

Wearing a Spanish fiesta costume with a white pointy hat in Birmingham, Alabama is asking for trouble. Don't do it, even if you're Spanish.

Putting a swastika on the back of your car in Mumbai is fine. Putting a swastika on the back of your car in Punxsutawney is foolish.

Shouting Allahu Akhbar at a religious festival in Lahore is fine. Shouting Allahu Akhbar in the check in line of JFK airport is foolish.

Dressing like a Nazi at a WWII themed party in Berkshire is fine. Dressing like a Nazi at a Pegida march in Dresden is foolish.

Is this really so hard for people to get their heads around?


Go back and read the first post in this thread where I wrote:

Not really sure that a KKK march is in the spirit of Fasnacht, especially as those taking part appeared to have neo-Nazi links.

Isn't this agreeing with what you've just written?



So who is it exactly can't get their head around this?
