CRAIGSVILLE, Va. - A Virginia mother says people are threatening her on Facebook because she allowed her son dress up as a KKK member for Halloween.

Jessica Black says she made her son, Jackson, a KKK costume when he told her he wanted to dress up as a member of the white supremacist group.

People in their neighborhood say they were shocked to see the boy's costume.

Jackson calls the costume "cool."

His mom maintains there is nothing wrong with the costume or the KKK.

"I did tell him that if you do it, you know there's going to be people talking about you," she said. "There's going to be people saying bad things about you when you do wear it."

Jackson said he learned about the costume from a movie.
