In the beginning, Ghost were called Ghost B.C., and they wore all white. They said that the costumes reminded them too much of the horrible KKK, so they switched to black. I love the black much better.
Yes, there is another white bear.The Kermode Bear. It's not a polar bear but in fact it is a rare subspecies of the Black Bear. The beautiful Spirit Bear, aka Ghost Bear, was named after Frank Kermode the former director of the Royal B.C. Museum, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
