    Re: Racist? Texas high school apologizes for fans' 'USA!' chant after basketball game

    This is a really stupid topic but I can't resist getting into a stupid thread....

    First, what "color" or race is a hispanic?

    If all these students were in this country legally and/or US citizens, why weren't they ALL chanting "USA"?

    I wonder what the other school's students meant by calling the winning school students "Alamo whites"? Was that just racist or a death threat? This was in San Antonio where mexicans slaughtered Alamo whites, was it not?

    Now the fun one: If the other team had won and there was a chant of "mexico, mexico" would we have ever heard about it?
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    Obviously that school district needs to be looked into. If the students had been properly educated they would of shouted "Remember the Alamo!". Dang, and that school district is in San Antonio also, the site of the Alamo.

    So now we are enforcing racism charges on an assumption of intention....Wonderful....What's next? 'I know what you are thinking, officer, arrest him!'

    nothing so severe

    instead we deny the students access to their next basketball game because they dared chant "USA, USA, USA"
    we must teach them never to evoke such expressions [/s]

    Hmmm, I didn't know that the USA consisted of white people only.

    What really burns my blood is that you can not possibly imagine the stuff my daughter has heard playing basketball and running in track meets at predominantly black schools, but MSNBC wouldn't be the least bit interested in a story like that.

    Double standards run amuck.
    More pandering to political correctness. Nowadays there's more controversy over saying you love your country than there is over burning an American flag or changing "f*ck" America - it's really sad that we've stooped this low. Even some countries in Europe (like Switzerland) are more patriotic than America is today.

    Interpretation needs to have context. There were no implications of racism in any of my comments. YOU created that. In the OP, there were certainly implications of offense.

    I ask questions Captain. I try, painstaking , to find out what the true meaning of what transpired especially when it come to teenagers, racism and the rights of others. I would think DB is the place to do it...
    The three posts of yours that I reposted were NOT you asking questions. They were you making statements. You're backtracking.

    Sorry that "Gringos" have contributed more to to this country as a whole than "beaners" have.
