The delusion of widespread racism and culture of politically correctness on college campuses has hit a fever pitch when a priest in a white robe can be mistaken for a Klansman.
The Tab reported that college students in Bloomington reported seeing a “KKK member holding a whip” around campus on Monday night.

One student even claimed that she suspected the Klan descended on campus because Indiana University lost in basketball.
Students became so alarmed that even dormitory resident assistants started notifying people on their floors to be on the lookout and stay indoors unless they were traveling with a group. The university administration, however, did not join in the conspiracy and issue a safety alert.
Hours later the “Klansman” emerged at a Red Mango, and it turned out to be priest in a white cloth, the whip was just his rosary beads.
“This is what happens when there is miscommunication,” said one RA on Facebook. “So what happened tonight goes like this: a person saw white robes and what looked to them like a weapon, got scared (rightfully so), warned people, warned staff, which in turn caused me to warn my residents because I need to look out for my residents, which in turn made it spread.”
With this kind of culture, and fear that a hate group can be lurking on campuses at any time — Gandalf the Grey from The Lord of the Rings wouldn’t stand a chance on a college campus.
At least the Dominican Friars had a good laugh about the whole thing.
