Oh, come on. Even in Texas, you'd have to know how offensive that is:

A Texas school board member apologized after posting an image of a member of the Ku Klux Klan with the caption "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas" to his Facebook page, television station KTAL reported on Monday.

Chris Harris, a board member for the Hooks Independent School District in the town of Hooks, posted two apologies to Facebook after posting the offensive image. After removing the offending post, he maintained in both apologies that he was not "a racist."

Harris also explained that the original post was "meant as a joke" that he realized "offended people" and that "got taken way out of context."
