    Just wondering why you would ask. Generally the home team cheers for their team, not their country - unless their country is their team.

    *Edit:

    I'm done explaining it. If someone doesn't know why it's rude for them to start a USA chant, then they have some issues to work out.

    Yes I am. You mentioned that you are "tired of everything being declared "racist"". "Everything" has not been declared racist in this thread. In fact, many people haven't even declared that the situation described in the OP is, in fact, an example of racism. Like I said, it's just you.

    Honestly there's just a point you hope people are just "playing" dumb to win an argument.

    Perhaps when you take into account all the normal factors of a sporting event in addition to the ethnic/racial makeup of the teams, then the logical conclusion is that the explanation you're trying to make happen is not even close to likely.

    The students from the losing school were from the United States it appears. I would hear this a overt act of nationalism and nothing more. Perhaps the other school should not be sore losers and accept that if they are to be considered Americans they should not take every word stated at a basketball game as a racial slight.

    Point is if you consider yourself American then no one can tell you that you are not. Nonsense and oversensitivity.

    The thread should have ended at post #2.

    Actually, they can and they did - which is the topic of this thread.
