Back to basics, then?

What is Black associated with?
What else could you call a parade?

Alright, I just couldn't let this one slip by, so I went and looked both these things up (yes, on Google), and found some stuff that might be of interest. Or you might all throw rocks at me, but it's worth a shot. At least if you're too lazy/lack the time to search, this'll be here :)

The color black:
~Black is often a colour of mourning. Historically, widows and widowers were often expected to wear black. 
~Some organizations are called "black" when they keep a low profile, like Sociétés Anonymes and secret societies. 

black + : Modernity, power, sophistication, formality, elegance, wealth, mystery, style
black - : Evil, death, fear, anonymity, anger, sadness, remorse, mourning, unhappiness, mystery


(pretty much, what we already knew about the color. I just thought the secret society thing was cool.)

~Parades are held for a wide range of reasons, but are usually celebrations of some kind. Protest demonstrations also sometimes take the form of a parade, but in such cases are usually referred to as a march instead.

~Parade (military), a collected formation of troops, typically with restricted movement 


pa·rade  (p-rd)
    1. An organized public procession on a festive or ceremonial occasion.
    2. The participants in such a procession.
    1. A regular place of assembly for reviews of troops. Also called parade ground.
    2. A ceremonial review of troops.
    3. The troops taking part in such a review.
  1. A line or extended group of moving persons or things: a parade of strollers on the mall.
  2. An extended, usually showy succession: a parade of fads and styles.
  3. An ostentatious show; an exhibition: make a parade of one's talents. See Synonyms at display.
  4. A public square or promenade.

And then of course that article... which I didn't get much out of, except like someone else said, the idea of revenge again...
