Ok, while I do agree, that these girls shouldn't be listening to idiots on the sidelines, I want to know where the damn adults were while this was going on?
Why weren't they stopped? Why did nobody make them leave?

After reading this thread I feel sorry for the girls and glad I don't live in America.
This was racism directed at kids. Quit victim blaming. If people did that this side of the pond they'd be banned for life, the club fined and potentially facing criminal charges. Kids shouldn't have to take racist abuse on the chin and it shouldn't be allowed in sports or anywhere else in civil society.

This whole thing reeks of BS and Special snowflake syndrome.
Lol how again is saying "Trump 2016", or "build a wall" even considered racist? That really needs to be explained.
These girls need to wake up and realize there in the real world. This shows that Society is falling apart if saying "Trump 2016" is being seen as a racist remark, compared to real racist remarks that could be said. Then again what should I expect from those indoctrinated in political correctness.
