The article that I'm using for this weeks analysis entry comes from CNN. The article is about an Ohio state trooper who was photographed wearing the costume or uniform of a Ku Klux Klan member, although the trooper was not a member of the KKK and claimed that it was a joke, he was still suspended without pay.
What is interesting about the article is it exposes different attitudes about race. Where as one group of people may see the KKK as a joke and feel it is alright to dress up as for ironic purposes, others may find nothing funny about it at all. The fact that this was a state official, who was wearing his uniform despite the hooded mask, makes it an even more complex issue. An issue that races the fairness of our law enforcement officials.
