AN AUSTRALIAN FOOTBALL TEAM USED KKK IMAGES TO PROMOTE “ALL WHITE NIGHT”

The Torquay Tigers, an Australian football team, are in trouble for promoting “All White Night” on the club’s website.

The gathering is supposed to be an event where fans wear the color white to show support for the Tigers. However, the team originally had a picture of hooded KKK members to promote “All White Night.” After media reports in Australia (and later picked up around the world) scolded the club for holding such an idiotic event, the Tigers took the offensive images of the klansmen off their website.

The images of the KKK members wearing white hoods were replaced by a picture of Snow White to promote the event. However, the Torquay Tigers are still holding “All White Night.”
