    Try reading instead of falling for liberal talkiing points. Race and ethnicity are different.

    I think it's stupid that the students broke out in such a chant, as both teams were from the USA, but that's just me obviously there was something else going on there besides simple school pride.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Where exactly in the liberal handbook of talking points does it say that race and ethnicity are the same?

    I think the motivation to chant USA is readily apparent, that is pride in being an American, which btw, includes people of all different races and ethnicities.

    You don't believe in context? Sure, a USA chant sounds nice, but if it's intent is really "**** you, go back to Mexico", then it's not quite as nice.

    My point was i don't care what it's called, bigotry in any form should not be tolerated no matter whether its "racism" or "ethnicism" or whatever you may call it. We're simply playing word games here now. That's my $0.02.

    Wouldn't this be more appropriate at the Olympics? What precisely is the motivation for chanting it at a high school game where both sides are from the same side of the border? I'll allow for the possibility that it was innocent (much like singing the national anthem before a basketball game at any level), but at the same time it's also entire probable that something more sinister was at work. Who really knows?

    I agree, actually. It's just that between this thread and the lawyer's joke about Obama... they've got me resorting to pulling out dictionaries just to resolve simple, obvious arguments.

    Then the other team should have joined in the chant. Why should a chant of USA be antagonistic to anyone in the US?

    Fine, you guys win. There is no racism anymore.

    Next person that says affirmative action is reverse racism gets smacked.
