Spotting some of these characters walking three or four abreast on McKinney Avenue from behind last night, it looked for a split second like the KKK was making a Dallas comeback. Then you noticed that the costumes were yellow, not white, and were actually meant to depict “bananas,” not to cloak white racists.
Seems a bunch of the bananasÂ congregated at Uptown Pub (pictured in photo by Jeanne Prejean), where a guy who answered the phone today said he thinksÂ the stunt was part of aÂ pub crawl organizedÂ via e-blast. “Last week they had a ‘Snuggie’ crawl,” he said, laughing. “I guess if they can organize Egypt, they can organize a ‘banana’ crawl.”
