Oops! Impromptu ‘Klu Klux Klan rally’ breaks out at Obama’s favorite team stadium

When you’re the hometown team of the first black president of the United States, you probably ought to think about things like this.

But the Chicago White Sox organization (unfortunately named, as it turns out) clearly wasn’t planning ahead when it staged a gameday giveway of white ponchos for a July 3 contest with the Los Angeles Angels.

No one would have noticed if the weather hadn’t gotten rainy, but when fans donned the rain gear to stay dry, that goodhearted giveaway turned U.S. Cellular Field into something resembling a giant Ku KIux Klan rally.

Wonder what the Sox first fan was thinking in the (unfortunately named) White House?

Whatever it was, Twitter users had a ball.

Not all the reaction was humorous, though, especially since the game kicked off a weekend in the Windy City that saw 14 killed in various gun violence — in a city with some of the strictest gun control laws in the country.

That might be the libs’ next argument.
