SHAMEFUL: Three students at Red River High School in North Dakota are in hot water after they donned Ku Klux Klan-style white robes and hoods Friday night during a state hockey semifinal game at the Ralph Engelstad Arena. The photograph of the three was taken by Shane Schuster, who uploaded it to Twitter where it caused an uproar.
Red River’s principal, Kristopher Arason, said the school’s investigation found that the students put on the attire after Red River’s first goal and wore it for about 30 seconds to a minute. Um, that’s 30 seconds to a minute too long. The actions of the three students was clearly planned and very offensive.
Wearing white at a hockey game doesn’t mean donning KKK-style garb. This was offensive and should not be excused with a slap on the wrist.
