The three students, who attend Red River High School in Grand Forks, North Dakota were photographed sitting in the stands during a Friday night hockey game, wearing traditional KKK garb. According to ABC News, the students put on the gear after the first goal and were caught wearing it for about 30 seconds to a full minute. The students may not have been noticed upon first glance because they were sitting in a section for fans called Red River Roughriders and in that section, everyone dresses in white as a part of the “whiteout” that many hockey fans have been doing at games for the last 25 years.
The photo made its rounds on social media and was shared over 97 times, along with disappointed commentary from many. The school’s principal, Kristopher Arason made a statement to the Associated Press, saying, “We, as a school, are extremely disappointed with the behavior of these three students. This behavior is not a representation of our school or student body.”
Looks like someone is in denial of just how far their student body is willing to go for a giggle.

NEW YORK — In honor of her “Let’s Move!” fitness campaign, first lady Michelle Obama showed off her dance moves on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this Friday.
The first lady and the comedian appeared in a skit called “The Evolution of Mom Dancing.” In it, Fallon, disguised as a pink and green-clad suburban “mom” — was joined by Mrs. Obama in showing off dances like the “Go Shopping, Get Groceries,” the “Just the Hands Part of ‘Single Ladies,’” the “Where’s Your Father (Get Him Back Here!),” the “Driving the Station Wagon” and the “Out of Sync Electric Slide.”
But it was the first lady who wound up getting the better of Fallon’s hip swinging suburbanite when she launched into what has become one of her signature moves: “The Dougie.”
The skit was part of an appearance on the show in which the first lady also challenged Fallon to a series of physical exercises, all designed to demonstrate the importance of keeping fit.
The two even tweeted their pre-workout rivalry before the show, which was taped Friday afternoon in New York.

Known for their risque satire, popular website The Onion pushed the envelope too far Oscar Night by calling 9-year-old Oscar nominee, Quvenzhané Wallis, a “c*nt” on Twitter.
Nominated for her break-out role in Beast of the Southern Wild, the future A-Lister, recently tapped to revive the role of Annie, continues to woo hearts all over Tinsel Town. Apparently forgetting what satire means, when The Onion attacked Wallis on Twitter, there was nothing humorous or vaguely intelligent about it.
Twitter instantly exploded:
The tweet has been deleted, but outraged Twitter users have taken screenshots of their feed at the time of the comment.
Of course, we all know what the Onion was going for, but they failed miserably and this is not going away.
Our Black girls deserve to cherished, respected and protected just as much as their White counterparts. Before it’s all said and done, ‘The Onion’ will understandth...

Quentin Tarantino wins Best Original Screenplay for Django Unchained.
Anne Hathaway has gone from propping up leaden sidekick James Franco at the Academy Awards to hefting a golden statue of her own with a supporting-actress Oscar win as a doomed mother-turned-prostitute in the musical “Les Miserables.”
Austrian actor Christoph Waltz won his second supporting-actor Oscar for a Tarantino film, this time as a genteel bounty hunter in the slave-revenge saga “Django Unchained.”
Hathaway, whose perkiness helped carry her and the listless Franco through an ill-starred stint as Oscar hosts two years ago, is the third performer in a musical to win supporting actress during the genre’s resurgence in the last decade.
“It came true,” said Hathaway, who joins 2002 supporting-actress winner Catherine Zeta-Jones for “Chicago” and 2006 recipient Jennifer Hudson for “Dreamgirls.” Hathaway had warm thanks for “Les Miz...
