Students wear KKK outfits at high school hockey game
By QMI Agency
Three high school students in North Dakota were photographed wearing what appeared to be Ku Klux Klan outfits during a high school hockey game Friday night, according to the Grand Forks Herald.
During the game, University of North Dakota student Shane Schuster took a photo of the students with his cell phone and posted it on Twitter with the caption: "I guess the red river highschoolers are racist?"
"We were behind the visitor's bench," Schuster told the paper. "The first period had just started, and the (Red River) student section was doing a chant. I squinted my eyes, and saw them wearing the KKK-style clothes. I was shocked and did a double take."
Grand Forks Red River High School administrators said Saturday that action has been taken against the trio.
"We, as a school, are extremely disappointed with the behaviour of these three students," principal Kris Arason said in a statement. "This behaviour is not a representation of our school or student body."
The game was part of a state tournament where the home team encourages its fans to wear team colours.
