With racial animosity driven by hard-left antagonists pushing a political agenda now filtering down to the high school level and more and more schools allowing highly impressionable students to disrespect the national anthem, the actions of three Florida high school students comes as little surprise.
The three minority students took things a little too far with “costumes” they designed to celebrate spirit week.
The Wiregrass Ranch High School students wore white sheets, complete with pointed hats that very much resembled traditional Ku Klux Klan attire. Another student wrapped himself in a Confederate flag, according to CBS Miami.
And while it’s not clear what the students’ intended message was, they claimed to be “ghosts.”
“Usually ghosts don’t have pointed hats,” said school Superintendent Kurt Browning. “The last thing we need is to have any student regardless of race dressed up in that type of costume.”
According to remarks by a parent, it appears that some students at the high school recently participated in a protest sweeping the nation as a result of ill-informed NFL player Colin Kaepernick, who has refused to stand for the national anthem due to “racial oppression” — his $126 million contract notwithstanding.
“Since our kids kneeled at the football game last week, there’s been a lot of racial tension in the community,” parent Dee Green told CBS Miami. “Never would I have expected that students, or even families, would have taken it as far as wearing Ku Klux Klan paraphernalia to the school.”
The school is looking at disciplining the students, two are Hispanic and one Middle Eastern, for wearing the Ku Klux Klan costumes. The student wearing the flag will not face any discipline because the school doesn’t appear to have a flag policy or ban.
…after last week’s antics, expect that to change real soon.
