    and i would imagine a few of them are not American
    and those that are American are going to be upset because the other team chanted USA USA?

It is predictable...but enough to point out the reality...there are people that LOOK for 'racism' in JOKES for Gods sake that will never give this kind of thing a second look.
    That's just your own assumption. Just like there will be people like that in THAT thread, there are people in THIS thread who say, "oh, this is no big deal... they should get over it".

    Because of the insinuation that the other team is NOT American, despite the fact that they were. It is reflection of the attitude of the students at that school.

    You make good points. I don't think it's a big deal to chant "USA," period. What next, it's offensive to wear a t-shirt with an American flag on it?
    I dont care if it WAS 'racist' that they chanted 'USA'. People oughta maybe grow the **** up a little bit and get some perspective. Oh noes...they said USA and now we haz a sad! THIS is the kind of thing we bitch about in this country.

    And if it was a game against Mexico, people would still chant USA.

    The accusation should be serious, because racism is pretty nasty.

    Ethnic superiority, meh, lots of people do this all the time.
    Whether or not they realize it.
    Why is racism "nasty" and ethnic superiority "meh"?

    Which is irrelevant to the issue.
