This, here, is what I am talking about. According to the story, the cheering coming from the Alamo Heights High School (a predominately white school in an affluent part of Houston) took a decidedly racist tone as the boys’s basketball team secured its win over over San Antonio’s Edison High School boys’ basketball team. Edison High School is a predominantly Hispanic/Latino school.
The superintendent overseeing Alamo Heights stated:
That’s not who we are as a community and that’s not who we are as a school. It’s not something that’s acceptable for us. Our kids are very respectable. We have to remember that they’re teenagers, and kids make mistakes.
I wonder: were parents also present in the stands? do the kids deserve all the blame?
