It’s one thing to put on the robe in class to show students what it looked like (even that is questionable).
It’s another thing to walk around school wearing it.
A student who showed up to high school dressed as a Ku Klux Klansman did so as part of an assignment — reportedly with advance approval from a teacher.Still, the head-to-toe costume — complete with infamous conical hood and a white, fabric mask with two holes for eyes — sparked outrage when classmates saw the student outside a history class at Harbor Teacher Preparation Academy in Wilmington, California, then learned the outfit was teacher-sanctioned, CNN affiliate KABC reported.“It kind of rattled me. It was hard to believe that (the teacher) would allow a Klansman to walk around from her approval. So, we asked her, and she … compared the Klan to the Black Panther Party, which in my opinion are two different things,” rising senior Trinity Young told KABC. “So yeah, it was troubling.”
