COLLIDE-O-SCOPE part 14: "THE KLANNIBAL"!!
Chester Teague hails from Kentucky and is one of those dyed-in-the-wool racists who is part of the traditional legacy of hate often found in southern redneck communities. Chester takes his racism to unsettling extremes, however, perhaps due to the mental damage inbreeding can cause, or perhaps due to the fact that he's flat-out crazy. Stemming from an effort to win the approval of his callous and emotionless father, and at the same time outdo the old man, Chester (who followed his father’s footsteps by joining the Ku Klux Klan) began actually eating his lynching victims, and found he had quite a taste for minority flesh. He views any non-white not only as inferior and subhuman, but as cattle to be dined upon. It’s offensive and unsettling, to be sure, but that’s what makes him such a despicable villain.
