WSFA 12 News Montgomery, AL Alabama NAACP criticizes use of Trail Maids in Inaugural Parade:
"The head of the Alabama NAACP, however, wants Mobile's Azalea Trail Maids to stay home on Inauguration Day, claiming the group reminds him of slavery.but we shouldn't be like Germany who has outlawed anything that might remind them of a horrid time in their past.
'These are not just regular costumes. These are the costumes that remind someone of the plantation in Gone with the Wind,' Edward Vaughn said in a phone interview."
Second - a group doesn't 'just decide' to show up to these things, they are invited - and they have to pay their way, thank you .... so if he doesn't want them there then maybe HE should run for office and then that way he can make sure they aren't there.
Thirdly - you don't 'deny' a whole group of people just because you don't like something about them .... isn't that just another form of racism? well in this case "southernism"?
Fourth - its dresses deary, not whips.
