Teen Defends Halloween Art Some Call Racist Scarecrows

Artist Says Only Media Has Complained


UPDATED: 9:59 am CDT October 24, 2008

OCONTO FALLS, Wis. -- An Oconto Falls teen who hung three black-faced scarecrows by their necks as a Halloween display says the mannequins aren't racist and he's not taking them down.

Marc Monfort, 18, said that only the media have complained

He said that the figures hang from their necks but not by nooses. He says tying the rope to the neck is the only logical way to hang the figures.

Mayor Don Osborne said that the display, which includes a Confederate flag, is disgusting. He said he can't say whether it's racist but he wishes it weren't there.

District attorney Jay Conley said that police have mentioned the mannequins but haven't asked that charges be filed.

Local resident Rebecca Setterman calls the display clearly racist. She said that it makes her embarrassed to live there.

Well, if being a racist or a bigot is against the law, then most of obama's friends should be in jail. Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot, only white people can be racist... Silly me!
