Actually, cutting all the crap, what would America be where white is the minority. It wouldn't be America anymore. Might as well rename it.

Same goes for Europe. Especially for Europe.

USA is very diverse. So i doubt they were meaning Racism.

If i was chanting USA USA USA at a (bunch of Mexicans) notice the implied meaning , i am not meaning they are lower / lesser human being than me , i am meaning their country sucks and America is the best , i really dont see how you get Racism from screaming USA.

By me saying a "Bunch of Mexicans" are you taking that as Racism or Nationality?

Again I say USA USA USA doesnt mean Mexico Cuba USSR what ever they are today sucks. USA just means USA pride.
It is a shame that if I ware a T-shirt with an American flag on it on the 5th of May I am racist. If I am white and ware a T-shirt with a Mexican flag on it on the 5th of May I am ready for a Margarita

IMO, everyone of you are as guilty of racism as the children in question! When you speak of a human or group of humans, do you refer to them as Caucasion humans or Mexican humans? By placing an adjective describing the American before hand, you too are separating two people of the same nation, Americans! Do you not see this?


Often these ethnic labels are self-ascribed. Obviously we're all humans and all bleed red. Not everyone is a big globalist though.


Everyone associates with some group. There is nothing wrong or backwards about people referring to themselves as African-American or Hispanic-American etc. It’s a thing called PRIDE and isn’t meant to be divisive.

Native American Indians would question your statement I'm sure.


This statement was meant for the first post on the page.

To someone from outside USA... its so blatant obvious the implied reason to the shouting.

Yay for cognitive dissonance

Yes! It must take someone outside of America to come in and set us all straight because obviously American’s are too dumb to make sense of this situation.

Personally I never understood why american media/people say things like "hispanic-american", "afro-american", "italian american" or "xyzamerican"...
Anyone outside US... thing you are just a bunch of americans. We really don't give a damn about the first part (hispanic/afro/italian/etc) when we are referring you as country's population.

More like "What would Mexico be without latinos?" Absolutely I say to this.

And an apology should indeed never be given because everyone has a right to have an opinion no matter how controversial someone else thinks it is. As long as it causes no physical harm.

Ok for the people too lazy to read the whole thread here is the rundown, that the moron who made the OP article conveniently left out.

Other team and fans were being overtly racist, chanting about the whiteys on the other team.

The fans and team of the "whiteys" then took the high road and chanted USA, instead of tossing racial slurs back at them.

Internet goes into a feeding frezny for a few pages bashing those racist whiteys.

/thread

Good job falling for some biased BS "news reporting". Jeez journalists are such a joke these days.

You see, this is what I mean. If the people of the world are under a threat of rule by a few elitists, their greatest weapon has already devastated those they wish to rule beyond recovery! Divided, we have no chance to stand against them. As long as anyone adopts their policies, they are with them and not against them.

Why would people outside the US be so self-absorbed to think that we use these descriptions for your benefit?


Just saying!

Doesn't pride already imply an air of superiority or exceptionalism?

if they were intentionally chanting it at a bunch of Hispanics, then it was intentionally...... racist.

It is never the words; it is always the intent behind the words.



So is USA a race now? Are those Hispanic students not citizens of the USA?

Please, it's not racist that Hispanic Americans heard the chant of the country they are citizens of! You want to talk about intent of the words? The intent was to show they are proud of the country that BOTH teams are citizens of!

All this is, is proof that PC ( Political correctness ) is killing this country.

We have American citizens, upset because people were chanting USA...Why? Because their ancestors are from another country.....Now tell me..... Is this country not founded by immigrants? All of our citizens have ancestors from other countries....

It's not racist against my dutch and English Heritage....

It's not racist against their Hispanic heritage....

People need to grow some thicker skin if they feel offended by people chanting the name of their own country....

Get back to me when they start chanting " Go back to Mexico"....That would be bigoted.

You must be one of those people you speak of because, although it wasn’t in the OP, it has been brought up now on 5 different posts in this thread.

For the record...
