English Flag Hoodie Looks Like Ku Klux Klan Outfit

A supermarket in England has released an English flag hoodie for supporters to wear to the soccer. It includes a wearable flag with a hoodie for rain protection. The only issue with it is that it looks like the outfit of the notorious group of white supremacists-the KKK

Now, where I stand on this is here.
a) People should be encouraged to support their nation and show patriotism
b) Hoodies like this should be encouraged not criticised
c) However, at the same time, they should really check these things before releasing it, because it does look like a KKK outfit
d) There is nothing wrong with people supporting their nation and wanting rain protection. It's just an unfortunate coincidence that the English flag hoodie looks like the KKK outfit
Where do you stand on this?

Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the KKK was active in the UK, so it doesn't have anywhere near the same cultural significant there.

Who the fuck cares? Half the people in the UK probably don't even know what the KKK is, so why make a big deal about it?

You do realize that the English flag has the color white in it, don't you? Saying that people shouldn't print English flags with white in them is like saying German flags shouldn't be made with the color black on them.

If it only resembles it from the back, and even then, it really doesn't, well...

Odds that it'll be a hot seller with the BNP crowd?
Crimes committed by Muslims will be a pan-Islamic plot and proof of Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of loners who do not represent their belief system at all.
The probability of one's participation in homosexual acts is directly proportional to one's public disdain and disgust for homosexuals.
If a political figure makes an accusation of wrongdoing without evidence, odds are probable that the accuser or an associate thereof has in fact committed the very same act, possibly to a worse degree.

I don't have a problem with the hoodie. It's just a bad coincidence that the hoodie slightly resembles the KKK's outfit from the back.

Really all the company that produces the hoodies needs to do to correct this unfortunate coincidence would be to redesign to the hood so it doesn't look like a cone/triangle.

it doesn't need to be all white, does it? it can still have white and make the rest....blue...there is blue in the English flag isn't there?
or it could be any color with the actual flag in its normal proportions on the back.

im not saying that they MUST do that. its just what I would do. its not like the KKK look is big in England.

Funny thing is, you can usually tell who the racists are by looking for the English flag flying outside of major sporting tournaments.

But the cultural significance of people looking slightly like the KKK's Poncho Division is frankly lost on most England fans. So no biggie.

There is no blue in the ENGLISH flag. That's the flag of the United Kingdom.

Be thankful whoever designed the outfit didn't make the red cross look like it was on fire.
