It's also not okay most of the time when you aren't playing that hockey team.

FTA: Kristopher Arason, Red River's principal, said the school's investigation determined that the students put on the attire just after Red River's first goal and wore it for about 30 seconds to a minute. The teens removed the outfits after students in the section told them it was offensive, he said.

*head-desk*

Well, at least the rest of the crowd shamed them into removing the outfits quickly.

FTA: The photo that Schuster posted on the social media site shows the three hooded fans in the middle of the Red River Roughriders section, in which everyone is dressed in white as part of a "whiteout."

I had hoped this wouldn't make the national rounds, but here we go. Pretty much any time my town is in the news, it's for backwater bullshiat like this. Remember the Olive Garden review? You're welcome.

My kids will more than likely attend that school someday.

They probably were not merely "dressing up as" the KKK.
 
2013-02-24 04:49:43 AM
Growing up there was a man who lived at the end of the holler who decided one year to dress up as the KKK,or at least it looked like it. It was kinda sad for his little girl since no one would let their kids go up to his house,being 10 or so at the time I didn't understand why my mom wouldn't let me get candy from his place since everyone basically knew each other considering Hardburly isn't a huge place. The next year he dressed like a hippie and his little girl was dressed up like Janis Joplin,she was adorable!

It gets worse...Purdue has "blackouts" (their colors being black and gold) and I got to see Alma Mater's students on national television, many of them having smeared their face with black paint.  Maybe that generation in Indiana's just naive or blessedly ignorant -- the "blackout" section was racially diverse.

They still march all around here. Waverly, TN used to be strong with the Klan, but now they're mostly meth-cooking skin heads. Pulaski is pretty much their main refuge in Tennessee, but they tend to stay anonymous and not cause much trouble. The Klan has been gutted since the 1970s by high profile lawsuits, so they tend to spew their hate in private. The sad thing is that they tend to be a generational thing, since most people dont want anything to do with them. They raise their kids to follow in the footsteps of hatred.

They actually made the news here in Memphis when they decided to get involved in the fight to rename Nathan Bedford Forrest Park between the Sons and Daughters of Confederate Veterans and the City Council. Even the people who were fighting against the name change told them they didn't want them here or associated with their cause.

I'm duly impressed.

Gary, Indiana (about 85% African-American) was informed by a KKK branch in Knox, Indiana that they were going to march, and there's nothing the city could do about it.

The city rolled out the red carpet...offered them the use of a stadium.  The stadium had not been used for 25 years and was separated from Gary residents and businesses by a quarter mile of swamp in every direction.  Out of sight, out of mind.

Actually, there have been a bunch of articles that discuss how detrimental it is to teach kids to totally ignore race and racial history- it means they don't ever learn to recognize racial privilege nor do they get an accurate view of American history.


This article explains it pretty well, but there are a bunch more on Google Scholar if the subject interests you: http://www.tolerance.org/magazine/number-36-fall-2009/feature/colorbl i ndness-new-racism

I just found a couple of sites mentioning the rally in Hazard I was talking about
http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/intelligence-report/browse-all -i ssues/2000/fall/cornered-knight
And also another place stating this
"Jeffrey Berry, Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan was arrested during August 2000 after ramming his van into the car of a black man according to Kentucky State Police. This occurred after a rally at a county courthouse. Berry's victim, identified as James Beatty, of Hazard, Kentucky said the Klan leader rammed his car after making threats. Berry was charged with felony first-degree wanton endangerment, felony first-degree criminal mischief and terrorist threats. He was held in jail pending a $10,000 cash bond. "

I was wrong about the grand dragon part but yeah.

Actually, the "on for 30 second" stuff is bull. When it was first reported, the athletic director denied that it was anything to worry about. But there has been significant pressure and anger via Facebook and, presumably, other venues. There is no evidence that parents told them to take it off, either. Lies. Just lies.

The original article from the Grand Forks Herald has been revised online, to hide the original report. North Dakota doesn't give a damn about racism and it never will.

Why don't the the black rappers turn the KKK hood into a new  urban style. That would really fark with the KKKs minds.

Remember that 'Jar Head' and 'Leather Neck' used to be insults until the Marines took them over and owned them.

I am actually amused by various attempts to label white folk with derogatory terms cos they never seem to work.

Myself, I'm partial to the Asian thing where they call ya a "round eye" that one cracks me up.

Gaijin, Baijo, Bak Guiy, Gwai Lo etc have no resonance whatsoever.

Chris Rock once bemoaned the lack of good derogatory terms for white folks and came up with "Honkaloid" but it never went anywhere.

The only "Wiggers" I've run into are products of the prison system or still have to be home by supper time to keep their momma's happy. The prison products could be described as rough around the edges or sometimes even working class, but I'm not sure they are acting a part as much as dealing with the reality of what it took to survive the system. I'd say the initial description is far more accurate regarding the true "Wigger."
