Nothing says “Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men” like Christmas carols sung from under KKK hoods.

Well, considering that the Citadel was founded in order to suppress potential slave rebellions, and Citadel cadets fired the first (and secessionist) shots in the Civil War, this incident seems quite appropriate.

““Ghosts of Christmas Past””

Try again. The Ghost of Christmas past is usually depicted wearing a stocking cap that does not go over the face. Sometimes he’s portrayed as wearing a full head of hair that covers most of his face. Sometimes the hair is on fire.

Dickens was an Englishman…and not a member of the KKK.

This will go on, indefinitely. It is the best way to have to hit the “re-set” button (from scratch) on acting like a human being.

People are of many origins and levels of socioeconomic status. People make friends across colour lines…they fall in love, they work together.

They begin to see commonalities.

Maybe, in a Citadel business class, two cadets of different colours begin to see the stranglehold the 0.001% has on them, as well as most everyone else.

Bingo! The hoods come out, everything I talk about above is erased and people have to hit “re-set” and start anew being fellow Americans.

In all my days, I have never seen people as dedicated to shooting themselves in the foot as American racists. Not only is their own nationality secondary to their “race”, but they repeatedly drive away a group of people (African Americans) who have demonstrated over the years a desire to be loyal and hardworking Americans.

Yes. It would be interesting to see the actual lyrics they were singing.

Is the glove on the left hand a Klan thing too or just some sort of really weird Michael Jackson tribute?

White power. There was supposed to be an upraised fist somewhere in the performance.

I know that the glove on the left hand is a part of some Free Masonry initiations too.

When racial bigotry is expressed by adults through adolescent high jinks employing visual metaphors, the crippled mental stature of those people becomes even more pronounced.

The photos were posted to Snapchat and later uploaded to Facebook by a woman who does not attend The Citadel, local TV station WCSC reported. The woman said she has been “threatened, harassed, and offered money from numerous Citadel Cadets to take it offline in order to not ‘ruin their lives.’”

Sweet postapocalyptic Jeebus on a cracker, do these dunces have no idea how the internet actually works?

I got news for you scrubs, once a photo is out there, there’s no way for the original poster to magically vacuum it all back up. Have fun with your ignomy. (Look it up, it’s just above your picture and the entry for “ignoramus.”)

The program…

“I’m Dreaming of a Whiter Xmas”

“All I Want for Xmas is a Desert Eagle and a non-white to shoot at.”

“Citadel President Lt. Gen. John Rosa said in a statement the students were apparently dressed for a “Ghosts of Christmas Past” skit and singing Christmas carols”

Riiiiiiiight…and I’m the Mufti of Mars, sent here to wage martian jihad upon all your couches.
