Grand Forks hockey fans dress up as Klan members

GRAND FORKS – A photo of Grand Forks Red River High School hockey fans that appeared to show some wearing Ku Klux Klan costumes surfaced on the social media site Twitter tonight.

University of North Dakota student Shane Schuster took the photo during Red River’s game against Fargo Davies. It shows a section of fans wearing white clothing and white face paint, apparently as part of a common hockey practice of “white out” night. In the center, three fans wore white robes and pointed hoods.
