It’s come to this… Now it’s racist and disrespectful to chant “USA! USA! USA!” after high school basketball games.
A local school district is apologizing after an apparent incident of racism at a boys high school basketball game this past weekend.
When the final whistle blew Saturday, Alamo Heights celebrated a convincing victory over San Antonio Edison.
Alamo Heights Head Coach Andrew Brewer said he was proud of his team.
“Tremendously proud,” Brewer said. “Tremendously. It’s the best group of kids.”
But it was just after the trophy presentation when the coach was not proud of the chant coming from Alamo Heights fans.
“USA, USA, USA,” they chanted.
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.
On the KSAT 12 Defenders Facebook page, Santos Villarreal’s post reads “this has to stop.”
SAISD Spokeswoman Leslie Price heard about the incident after it had happened.
“This is very disrespectful to our students,” Price said.
She said the district is glad the coach put a stop to the chant immediately and hopes Alamo Heights addresses it quickly.
“It is surprising and it’s disappointing to hear that anyone would be out there making those kind of remarks,” Price said.
USA is full of minorities, but they are still Americans.
So what’s the problem other than political correctness run amok?
If the other team is comprised of illegal aliens, they have no right to be upset.
They need to understand that without America, there would be no freedom.
