Incident: Three male University of Kansas cheerleaders pose next to each other wearing festive holiday sweaters with a big letter K on them. Lest you think this is just an unfortunate coincidence, the image is captioned “KKK Trump.” Unlike other incidents this blog has cataloged, this post was probably not part of a planned campaign of intimidation or recruitment for white supremacist groups. More likely, it is a product of spontaneous cruelty and racism.
Response: The three people in the picture, along with a fourth cheerleader who took the picture, were suspended from cheerleading.
