The Chicago White Sox thought they had a great promotion idea by giving fans White Sox rain ponchos to wear in the stands during the July 2 game. Unsurprisingly they were produced in a brilliant white color. The problem only became obvious when fans started putting the things on, giving TV viewers the feeling that the stands were filled with pointy KKK hoods.
The ponchos were welcomed by the fans in the stands, of course, because it was a rainy day, but it sure didn’t make for a desirable visual for Chicago’s South Side team.
