Look what happens when an oddly robed man walks through a college campus (tip to Instapundit):
Everyone mistook a priest for a KKK member last night
Rumors of a klansman on campus have proven false after a priest innocently made his way through Bloomington.
Last night around 9:15 PM, social media became a furious storm of confusion regarding a man in white robes roaming along 10th St. and purportedly armed with a whip.
Students thought the white robes indicated Klu (sic) Klux Klan affiliation.
Ponder that what in many communities would be a completely normal and routine sight--a priest walking about--causes a minor panic as the unknown other walks among them.
On this campus, a certain subset of students took to the Twitterverse to report a Ku Klux Klan member.
When you add this to another recent campus incident where a lefty professor mistook ordinary ROTC students in military uniform for mad gunmen, you get a notion of what is and is not a normal sight in these circles of people.
Priests and soldiers are alien sights in some communities. But these communities profess to value diversity and open-mindedness.
