Wheaton of Illinois Reacts to K.K.K. Skit

March 9, 2015

Officials at Wheaton College in Illinois are criticizing a skit by members of the football team who dressed up in Ku Klux Klan robes as part of an off-season event in which team members do comic sketches, The Chicago Tribune reported. The students -- who also used Confederate flags -- say that they were trying to mock racists, not be racist. But many are concerned that the students didn't know how offensive their costumes and props were to many on campus.
