Ghosts or KKK: Three Florida students of color who donned sheets now face suspension
Three Tampa-area high school students face suspension after wearing Ku Klux Klan costumes to school.
While their names have not been released, two of them are Latino and one is Arabic. They told the administration that they were dressed as ghosts, wearing white sheets, their hats just happened to be pointed, according to WESH.
Last week was Homecoming week at Wiregrass Ranch High School, and the students were told they could dressed up as characters. Many came as superheroes or television characters.
The students were accused of harassment and face a possible 10 days of suspension.
