In North Dakota: High School students wear KKK hoods at a Hockey game

Race relations in America.
An NHL team popularized the idea of a "white-out," where fans get dressed in white on game day. So at a hockey game at a North Dakota high school, the students did the same. Students at Grand Forks Red River High School covered themselves in white clothing or paint for a big hockey game. But a few ill-advised students took the idea a little too far--and showed up to the game dressed as Ku Klux Klan members, the Grand Forks Herald reported.

The offensive fashion made news after a student took a picture of the of the students in their KKK hoodies and uploaded it to Twitter. Grand Forks Red River High School administrators now say that three students have been disciplined. “We, as a school, are extremely disappointed with the behavior of these three students,” Principal Kris Arason told reporters in a mass email statement."This behavior is not a representation of our school or student body.”
Our children are our future.
