Wisconsin releases statement regarding fan wearing offensive President Obama costume
Racism is still prevalent in America today.
There’s no doubting that.
During yesterday’s Wisconsin-Nebraska game, television cameras were scanning the fans inside Camp Randall Stadium and one shot of the crowd showed a fan wearing a President Obama mask with a noose around his neck.
According to collegefootballtalk.com, the fan was also wearing black-and-white prison stripes.
