    Lol ... so you know the ethnicity of those who started the chants? What 'eyewitness testimony'? Was there a trial, with cross-examined witnesses or something? You're just pulling crap out of your ass, that's all, and again, chanting 'USA" shouldn't offend anybody sane; just because you feel left out isn't 'logic' or 'fact'. All you have is a preliminary news report, from a media that is notorious for chronic, tabloid style inaccuracies, and nothing else, certainly no proof of racism or anything else, speaking of being oblivious to 'context'.

    No... I read the news reports. LOL. You should try doing it instead of listening to Fox News, Glenn Beck, and Rush Limbaugh. You might learn something. Here buddy, here's what happened:

    High school basketball fans accused of racism for "USA" chant - Sports Blog - CBS News
    They started chanting USA maliciously. The coach took notice:

    Alamo Heights boys basketball coach Andrew Brewer moved quickly to end the chanting, but the damage was already done.
    Now, I don't know about you, but I've never heard of a coach running to stop a bunch of kids from rooting for his team before... have you? Must be a dumb liberal, right? The kids on the opposing team noticed too:

    San Antonio (Texas) Edison High School - whose student body is 96 percent Hispanic - filed a complaint about the incident with the University Interscholastic League, the governing body of Texas public high school extracurricular activities.
    The school district's athletic director took notice:

    "I appreciate Coach Brewer taking the action he took to stop it," San Antonio Independent School District athletics director Gil Garza told KENS. "Our kids try real hard and work extra hard to get to the regional tournament, and then we have to worry about them being subjected to this kind of insensitivity."
    And finally, so did the school's superintendent:

    "Obviously we were disappointed that this happened," Alamo Heights superintendent Kevin Brown told KENS. "That's not who we are as a community and that's not who we are as a school. It's not something that's acceptable for us. Our kids are very respectable. We have to remember that they're teenagers, and kids make mistakes."
    And this isn't the first time this has happened either:

    Basketball Victory Chant Sparks Accusation of Racism at High School | NewsFeed | TIME.com
    This is not the first time a basketball match in San Antonio has take such a turn. In a 2011 incident, students from the mostly white Cedar Park High School chanted “USA! USA!” and “Arizona! Arizona!” (which was at the center of a raging debate over its controversial anti-immigrant legislation) toward the mostly Hispanic Lanier High. A similar complaint was filed, for which Cedar Park’s school district apologized.
    But yeah, I'm just knee-jerking it... LOL
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    Ah, so the answer is no, you don't actually know squat about it, just assuming a lot of self-serving BS, just because it fits into your fantasies. Thanks, but I already knew that. Be careful not bust out a tooth or pull a muscle with those violent jerks, now, hear? They can be dangerous.
