Anyone interested in joining the racist, knuckle-dragging ranks of the Ku Klux Klan is in luck: they’re recruiting — according to an idiotic flier posted at an Upstate college, anyway.
The flier pictured above was posted on the third floor of the Westchester Marriott Hotel in Dobbs Ferry last weekend. The hotel serves as a residence hall for students at Mercy College, so chances are the Ku Klux Klan isn’t actually recruiting in Upstate New York — it’s more likely just a dopey prank by some college-age dipshits.
According to the flier, the “meeting” was to be held at a home on Elm Street and Broadway in Dobbs Ferry. The flier claims it was to be hosted by the Mercy College men’s lacrosse team, and lists the names of three players on the team.
Police, however, determined that the flier was probably just a hoax, and the members of the lacrosse team had nothing to do with it — the players listed were reportedly “horrified” when they found out about it.
Police are currently investigating the origin of the flier. Those responsible could potentially face aggravated harassment charges.
“The college has zero tolerance for insensitive and disturbing behavior.
Mercy College’s code of conduct specifies offensive material cannot be
posted anywhere,” the college says in a statement.
