By Brian Anderson. With six years of Obama disrespecting our heritage, playing identity politics, and destroying our sovereignty, this was inevitable: patriotism now equals racism. Fans at a high school girls basketball game in Texas have been accused of racism becuase they were chanting “USA, USA, USA!”
See, it’s all in the context. Apparently, Idalou High School, whose fans were chanting, is predominantly white, while the team they were playing, Slaton High School, is predominantly Hispanic. I guess the Slaton ballers must all be illegal aliens or something, because I still can’t see why this is an issue.
Slaton Superintendent Julee Becker took issue with the chant however, explaining to My San Antonio why this was such a horrible incident:
“I believe that we are a microcosm in schools of greater society. That’s what we are. The symptoms of racism, they run deep, said Becker. (Read more about the ‘racism’ at the Texas high school HERE)
Faculty at Texas High School Apologize to Students for ‘USA’ Chants
By Phil Terrigno. Slaton Superintendent Julee Becker confirmed Slaton has not filed a formal complaint with the UIL regarding the incident and said that “in some ways, this is a bigger deal than the UIL” . . .
Idalou Superintendent Jim Waller issued a written apology in addition to speaking with Slaton administrators but also said no students will be disciplined. . .
“I was not aware of anything about that until it was brought to my attention by someone else about what had happened at some other schools,” Waller said in a phone interview. “I immediately apologized to the (Slaton) superintendent. I emailed this morning a written apology and called an administrators meeting.”
In that apology, Waller wrote: “I apologize to Slaton ISD and the chanting will not be allowed to continue at games because of the perception that it creates. We understand competitiveness and school excitement and support, but we need to be supportive in our words to our team and not use words that may be interpreted as insensitive to an opposing team” . . .
Becker said she plans to address the Slaton students and community about the incident because “they deserve to know that we won’t let it go. We don’t tolerate racism in our schools.” (Read more from this story HERE)
