GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities are investigating complaints that some students attending a West Michigan high school used racial slurs and donned apparel similar to that worn by members of the Ku Klux Klan.

Grand Haven Schools Superintendent Keith Konarska tells MLive.com Saturday that the "events are terribly concerning and absolutely unacceptable."

Konarska says there have been at least three incidents and that three students have been disciplined. Details of the incidents and what type of discipline was handed out were not released.

Konarska says the high school is increasing efforts to create awareness and understanding programs for students.

Grand Haven is along Lake Michigan, about 30 miles northwest of Grand Rapids.

    Pray for me as well, I think "Name" was making an comparison. And yes, racism does exist within the Left wingnuts. They cry racism when ever someone points out their hypocrisy!?!?!?

    Wow, really NAME? The article is about an incident that happened, did you really have to make it about something else? Comments such as yours prove racism still exists. I pray for your soul and ask God to touch your heart.

    SO it is racial intimidation when a group of white guys wear KKK attire, but it is not racial intimidation when a group of black wears black panther attire.
