    because the audience was cheering for both teams, of course! That's what happens at all home games, didn't you know?

    THAT would be different, since both teams were NOT from the USA.

    this re-segregation did not happen by chance
    Do you think people group together based on cultural and racial dissimilarity?
    Hardly the case.

    Often, and especially with recent immigrant Hispanic groups, they tend to group based on common factors.
    It's segregated based on the fact that these Hispanics decided to live near, other Hispanics.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Chanting "USA" does NOT apply that because they were Hispanic, they were not American. No one knows their true purpose of chanting "USA" Some overly sensitive crybaby took it out of context, and now it is deemed "racist".

    So it was the Hispanics that need to grow up? Not the high schoolers who never learned to respect others?

    Then YOU try to answer my question:

    And if both teams are from the USA, why would ONE feel the need to chant "USA, USA"?
