A school district in Texas has apologized for what some perceived as a racist chant from fans after one of its teams beat a rival in a basketball playoff game.
Well, it looks like there is another taboo phrase that is forever implanted into the minds of the politically correct & self-righteous. According to a local San Antonio news outlet, there has been an outcry stemming from complaints of racial slurs being thrown around after a local high school won their basketball play-off game. What were these dirty words you may ask? To those with fragile ears, I say “earmuffs” (and eyes closed). After their team won, Alamo Height’s fans chanted:
“USA! USA! USA!”
So those without earmuffs at the time began to proclaim how “taken back” they were when fans started proclaiming their love for their country. Complaint’s of racial intolerance began to rise up from the ashes. Anyways, here is a viewpoint that respective school district took:
“San Antonio Independent School District officials took the chant as a racial insult to a school with all minority players from a school with mostly white ones.”
Ok, I just have to stop myself right there. It astounds me how someone who mind you is a citizen of this country and is currently living in the United States themselves is offended by this supposedly racist tirade of patriotism. I would love for someone to sit me down and explain to me how this personal interpretation is justified in which therefore necessary to pull the race card. And since when is patriotism automatically tied to racism. As I checked last time, don’t both teams reside in the United States? And to those offended, as my football coach used to say: “Walk it off.”
