Calif. Girl Disciplined After Wearing KKK-Style Hood to High School


A California schoolgirl was disciplined after sparking controversy at Kern High School in the city of Bakersfield for wearing a Ku Klux Klan-style hood at school last week.

Other students who saw the girl took to Snapchat to take pictures of the girl in the offending hood during lunch Thursday, KERO reports. (Really, who is telling these kids that it’s “cool” to be racist?)


“I started Snapchatting it because that was terrible. I didn’t like that one bit,” Aidan Reed, a student at the school, told the news station. “I think that people should realize it’s not a joke.”

The Kern High School District quickly investigated the incident and said that it was appropriately dealt with. According to KERO, at least one student was suspended in connection with the incident.
