It will not be April first for a couple of weeks, so what am I missing? Chanting 'USA' is at worst nationalistic (which is not necessarily bad, especially in our case today). Indeed, it is more racist to think chanting USA is racist then chanting it. The only way the chant can be racist is if the United States represents only one race, which it most certainly does not. To think otherwise is at best seriously ignorant, and at worse racist in itself.
"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."
