Since when is being proud of the USA racist?
"Not learning from mistakes is worse than committing mistakes. When you don't allow yourself to make mistakes, it is hard to be tolerant of others and it does not allow even God to be merciful."
Why is it everywhere else in the world we had better know first....
But when it comes to accusations of racist attitudes, we somehow permit people to make assumptions and then complete character assassinations of people based upon an ASSUMPTION that they are saying/doing/something for racist reasons??
1) Both teams playing were from the USA.
2) One team was predominately white.
3) One team was predominately Hispanic.
4) The home crowd was chanting USA to root for the home team against the Hispanics.
5) The people there thought it was racist.
6) The school thought it was racist and apologized.
What, exactly, is causing you trouble with this? Have you been to a sporting event? Just quit playing dumb... everyone who was there knows what it was, I know what it was, most people on this board know what it was. Just admit it and quit trying to pull this conservatives love America bull****.
Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.
That is what is bothering me.
People are quick and easy to get offended.
I bet If I put an American Flag up on my front door, the hispanic folks down the street would suddenly be offended.
When it comes to latinos, anything about the USA is apparently offensive for some god damned reason.
But thats beside the fact, just because someone thinks something is racist does not make it so...... people have been trained for the last decade to be quick and ready to be offended at everything, even if there is no intent to do so.
There could have been any number of reasons not explained why they decided to chant USA........... But what do people do? Immediately jump to the race card.
I put the same burden of proof on accusations of racism that one should put on the state when proving a crime in court..... Beyond a reasonable doubt.
Hell, with this information, you barely have reasonable suspicion.
