The local NAACP chapter interprets the "bro" in a "you mad bro" sign held up by fans of a winning football team as racial intimidation. We think it's just questionable sportsmanship, and the unforgivable crime of taking memes outside the internet, where they belong.
The big sign read: 'You Mad Bro.' "I think the reference to 'bro' in the sign definitely has a racial connection to it," said Michael Hanlon, superintendent for Painesville City Schools.
According to the Urban Dictionary, which is basically the online Wikipedia of slang, the phrase 'you mad bro?' means "To make a ragin [sic] person rage even more by asking the most ironic question." To use an older slang phrase, kicking someone when they are down.
