North Dakota High School Hockey Fans Dress As Ku Klux Klan Members
Usually we use this space to post Twitpics and other fun screencaps from the night before in sports. This morning we start with high school kids wearing what appear to be Ku Klux Klan hoods to a North Dakota high school hockey game.
The photo is of the Red River student section for a state semifinal game last night in Grand Forks.
Fargo Public Schools Athletic Director Todd Olson, who is the former athletic director for Grand Forks Public Schools, did not attend Friday’s hockey game, instead he was attending a Davies High basketball game, in which his son played.
Olson said late Friday he had not seen the photo but all-white garb is generally an accepted part of the white-outs.
“To be very honest, I think you’re looking for something that is not there,” Olson said.
That’s interesting because the last time we looked up KKK costumes on Google Image Search, the costumes look exactly like what the students are wearing.
Call us crazy, but there doesn’t seem to be much difference.
As for the hockey, Red River won, 2-0, and will play tonight for a state championship.
It appears the students didn’t wear the hoods the entire game. (via @AudraDMari)
