When Is Chanting “USA, USA” Racist?
From the “never miss a thought crime” category: when is chanting “USA, USA” racist?
When it’s being done by high school kids whose players are “mostly white” and school bureaucrats deem it to be so.
Hopefully those thought criminals in question, the “mostly white” ones, didn’t partake in any other indictable school offenses, such as having Advil in their pockets, having drawn a picture of a gun, or most dangerously, being in possession of a Taco Bell spork.
However, they’ll all likely draw a form of probation assuming they successfully complete their state-sponsored diversity training. Perhaps this is a bigger issue that could be better addressed by adding even more diversity training to the curriculum (even if it means having finally drop the school’s one remaining physics class).
Bringing this kerfuffle to its logical conclusion, when will any chant of USA, USA not be deemed to be racist? When the chants are approved in the minds of the bureaucrats running the event. Would bureaucrats at a “mostly black” school have their students busted for the same thought crime? Impossible to say definitively, but I’m betting… no.
Thought crime fever: bust someone today!
UPDATE: is it possible many (most? all?) of our school bureaucrats would fail the SAT question which calls on their ability to differentiate between rude and racist?
