Chanting "USA" is racist

After a high school basketball game, the athletic director of the losing team complained about the crowd which chanted "USA! USA! USA!". This was pure racism, said a spokesperson and the racist chanters were reprimanded.

Alamo Heights High School, which is made up mostly of white students, beat Edison High, which is predominantly Hispanic, in the Region IV-4A championship in San Antonio on Saturday. As Alamo players celebrated the win on the court, a large group of students began cheering “USA! USA!”

Leslie Price, a spokesperson for the San Antonio ISD said the “USA, USA” chant was racially motivated and “very disrespectful.”

As punishment, Alamo Heights students who were involved in the chanting will not be allowed to attend the team’s remaining state title games.
