    SEE WHERE CHANTING 'U-S-A!' NOT ALLOWED

    'We don't want to start a race war'

    By Kevin DeAnna

    Chanting the name of your own country is now prohibited.

    Basketball players at Alamo Heights High School defeated San Antonio Edison in Texas on Saturday. In jubilation, Alamo Heights students began chanting “USA, USA!”

    School officials immediately stopped the chant because they believed it was disrespectful.

    Reporter Brian Mylar’s article at KSAT.com was headlined “Racial incident mars high school game” and termed it a “disturbing incident.”

    However, in an interview with WND, he admitted he was not actually at the event and the report was based on video.

    In interview with WND, Mylar commented that there were no racial chants, but the chant of “USA” was taken by some to be racial.

    When asked if the other team’s fans had responded in any way, he said that he did not know because he was not at the event and the report was based on video. He also stated that he did not know if the predominantly Hispanic fans of San Antonio had chanted anything that caused Alamo Heights fans to respond in this way, as “I don’t know. We don’t want to start a race war.”

    According to the San Antonio Independent News, the chant of “USA” lasted about five seconds before being silenced by the coach of Alamo Heights.

    The Edison team also was already in the locker room. However, San Antonio Independent School District Athletic Director Gil Garza filed a complaint with the University Interscholastic League on Tuesday.

    This is not unique for the area, as both Mylar and the San Antonio Independent News referenced an incident the prior year when the predominantly white Cedar Park High School chanted “USA” and “Arizona” at the fans of mostly the mostly Hispanic Lanier High from San Antonio.

    USA vs. Mexico soccer games have also become a scene of tension, with the U.S. team taking for granted that games in Los Angeles are “Mexican home games” and Mexican fans chanting “Osama” and throwing urine and vomit at the American players.

    School officials of both districts immediately condemned the students. According to Mylar, San Antonio Independent School District spokeswoman Leslie Price stated, “It is surprising and it’s disappointing to hear that anyone would be out there making those kinds of remarks.”

    Alamo Heights Supt. Kevin Brown also apologized, saying, “We just hope that people know that that’s not who we are and we’re not going to let it happen again.”

    Alamo Heights as a school has also apologized and the students identified will be banned from state title games and be forced to apologize, officials said. According to the San Antonio Independent News, some of the Alamo Heights students who chanted “USA” and have been punished are Hispanic.

    However, there have been no allegations that any racially insensitive language was used, besides “USA.”

    The principal for Alamo Heights declined comment.

    Don't forget, most of these so called teachers are card carrying members of Socialist public employee/teachers Unions. Nuff said!

    We have got to teach common sence and change everyone in D.C. Its getting to be way out of line. Has anyone head about the 1% tax on all bank trasnactions. Any thing at all deposit, withdraw transfer funds loans 1% goes to Gov. Obbo says no new taxes so he calls it a user fee. What next?

    chanting U.S.A. is racist
    requiring I.D. to vote is racist
    opposing the presidents policies is racist
    calling this president the 'food stamp' president is racist

    doesn't matter what you do if your conservative, or even if you just disagree your a racist!


    I'm reminded of a few HISPANIC kids at a high school or maybe a junior high that were wearing tee shirts with the American Flag on it were told to turn their shirts inside out. (couple years ago)

    the school officials didn't want to inflame racial tensions:patriotic:

    I believe I would have fun with the school district for that...and it would be very expensive for them when I got done, especially if my child was one being oppressed for his country of origin...

    Expensive for them? Isnt it a public school that relys on taxes? So if you take the issue to court and get a judgement doesnt it just come out of everyone elses pocket?

    Both schools are in Texas, why would you chant USA if you weren't inferring something?

    At what point in time did our rights as US citizens come in a far second to everyone else in the world that has any sort of bizarre, unreasonable complaint - in our own backyard?? Since when did USA become a "race"?

    Go to any other country on earth, and their rules always come first to any visitors. Come here, and the host always seems to be wrong, and the visitor right?? Go home, dammit.

    That also goes with the argument that I should be ashamed to be white because my ancesters were slave owners. WHAT?? My ancesters ruled most of the old world for centuries, and fed all opposers to the lions for entertainment, light or dark meat. :na-na:

    All that and a quarter will get you a cheap, small cup of coffee.

    USA! USA! USA! USA! USA!

    I hate to say it, but the PC brigade is alive and kicking out any form of patriotism and traditional values it can possibly find to attack...in most western "civilised" countries...the UK, and Australia are just two who are falling to the PC war against decency.

    It's got to the point where if you look at someone the wrong way and you are called in for race crimes, labelled a racist, homophobe, or any other thing. They use the victim card big-time to bully anyone who disagrees with them. The liberal press publicises their side long and loud, but totally ignores when the traditional people are on the receiving end of real hate crimes by the PC brigade. It's fine to attack traditional values, but absolutely wrong to attack liberal politically correct values.

    There has to be a way to stop them in their tracks and take the country back from the PC briagade.

    Great point, exactly which ethnicity or "race" box does the U.S.A. need to check?
    So "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free." is racist?
    And this from a bunch of so-called educators? Isn't this precisely where they need to step in and educate?
    What the hell, lets just cater to the collossally (get it?) ignorant!

    the cry of racism from the pc police has always worked in the past, it's been an effective deterent to make the rest of us sit down and shut up.

    we can't sit down any more, we are watching the progressives and liberals drive us over a cliff.
