"Tutu recalls one day when he was out walking with his mother when a white man, a priest named Trevor Huddleston, tipped his hat to her—the first time he had ever seen a white man pay this respect to a black woman. The incident made a profound impression on Tutu, teaching him that he need not accept discrimination and that religion could be a powerful tool for advocating racial equality"

What would make an African activist even think of wearing a KKK outfit?

I'm not familiar with Nigerian humor, but this is amazingly insensitive.

I'm Nigerian...don't think this has anything to do with culture, the ads work and the idea transcends borders.
