Don’t overreact to Baraboo prom photo -- Jim Graves

November 14, 2018

Overreaction can be best defined with the photo of the Baraboo students who were pictured before their prom raising their arms. Some seem to be waving at the photographer, others are smiling with their arms extended, and a number are doing nothing, just being part of a photo session.

None of this remotely resembles the standing at rigid attention, stern, snarly “sieg heil” salute of Nazi Germany history.

Those perpetuating this as a white supremacist thing should be ashamed.
