If you have not heard about this one, it should send your blood pressure through the roof.
In San Antonio, the cheer of “USA, USA,” has been deemed to be racist.
A Texas school district has filed a complaint alleging that students from a rival school engaged in racism by chanting “USA, USA” at a basketball game. The students involved in the incident were reprimanded and forced to apologize.
The San Antonio Independent School District filed the complaint with the University Interscholastic League, the governing body for athletics in Texas. They allege that students at Alamo Heights High School began chanting “USA, USA” after they defeated Edison High School to win a region basketball championship.
Edison’s team is predominantly Hispanic, said Leslie Price, a spokesperson for the San Antonio ISD.
“The implication as they are not American citizens,” Price told Fox News. “We understand competiveness and rivalry, but you need to choose your words and think about the meaning behind them.”
Price said she believes the “USA, USA” chant was racially motivated.
“It was chanted selectively at a school that is predominantly Hispanic and there was understanding of that,” she said.
Price said the school district was bombarded with a number of people who found the “USA, USA” chant to be “very disrespectful.”
“That might be chanted at international soccer games,” she said. “But this is not a chant that these students chant at all of their basketball games. It was selective.”
Who the hell are these fools?
USA? This is the USA. This is the United States of America. Cheering the USA is not racist.
Why do we tolerate morons like those who have destroyed the education system?
In San Antonio, only six in ten students graduate high school. That is a failing rate by any standard. Instead of creating a successful product, namely education, these brain donors instead are worried about stupid nonsense.
The government education industry is a disaster. The costs of education have been exploding, while the product they produce is by all accounts a failure.
And these are the clowns who are going to tell us that students chanting “USA, USA,” is racist? Fire them all and start all over. The results could not be any worse.
No, they are evil.
When our grandparents came to American they called themselves America's and was proud to be part of the melting pot. Today many people who are coming in want to keep there own language & flag they do not want to become American's they are hear for the benefits we have to offer. I blame our leaders who have aloud this to happen, just to gain a new voter. American became great when everyone became part of the melting pot and did what was good for the country not just for there group.
Let me quess...........the other school didn't speak english and most were in the states illegally. Maybe schools need to have a rule that they have to be a citizen to play. Bet if they were shouting mexico mexico mexico nobody would have complained and if they did the ones to complain would be branded as racist..............bull crap............idiots.............
http://www.saisd.net is the link to send your direct thought to the school. I have called on the coach and the principal to resign, as clearly, they do not have the moral or patriotic wherewithal to be in a position of authority.
It is an absolute abomination when some left wing idiot deems the chant USA, USA racist. A whole class of socialist educators that are obviously anti-American, anti-Liberty and anti-Constitution have seized control of the state run education system in this country. These people are against traditional conservative Americans, they hate America and they are brainwashing our youth. If this is allowed to continue the path to socialism will continue unabated. Is it any wonder why our youth just sit idle and accept the ever more increasingly poorer jobs (if they can find one), longer hours, poorer pay and reduced benefits without a protest. Is it any wonder why they just sit idle while their constitutional freedoms are taken away? We had better wake up the young generation or else we won't be able to recognize this country in a few years.
Dennis it is not just the young. There are alot of older Americans who are totally out to lunch.
Some of these, correct that, many educators have got absolutely no common sense. In fact, they don't have the mental capacity to do anything but follow orders from their minders. They have been thoroughtly condition through their training/education and ongoing indoctrination to tear down any religous or patriotic thought, speech, image, etc. Many of these people, who are also polluting the minds of our yourg people, are simply goons for the uber Left.
I wish that every team that wins in the NCAA would chant USA USA USA.
That should take the onus off from the highschool.
Notice the last name of the school superintindent.
Is every kid from Edison H.S. an illegal ? Even if they are they should have been chanting along with Alamo students. They chose to be here rather than in some "Hispanic" cesspool. If "USA" and the American flag are offensive to you then get the hell out of my country.
This is what America has become and what were we doing when we should have been stopping it? What the heck were we thinking and where were our heads? Were we lulled to sleep by prosperity?
It embarrasses me to see this country the way it is now. It is nothing like it was when I was a kid. Gees, everyone was held accountable and when we didn't do the right thing our fannys got tanned. (We called that the board of education being applied to the seat of learning....and learn we did!) So where and how did we drop the ball?
We really can't blame this generation with out pointing out our roll in this mess.
