    ....A high profile high school in one of the wealthiest districts the San Antonio region finds itself under fire after its fans chanted "USA, USA, USA" following its boys basketball team's regional final victory against a team that was made up predominantly of Hispanic players.

    This is real BS. If our kids are proud of our Country and these SOB hispanics don't like it they should get the hell out of our Country and go back to Mexico or whereever. Mike.

    One United States team playing another United States team - one made up of primarily white kids, the other made up of mostly Mexican kids (neighborhood schools) and the white kids win. They begin to shout USA, USA to mock the Mexican ancestry of the other US, American high school kids. This has nothing to do with national pride. Both of the teams were American highschoolers - it was out of line and they should have been called on it,.

    So now Mexico is a race?

    Are the children of Mexican descent Americans?

    If so there is no reason for them to complain

    Are all Americans white?

    I think it's pure BS, just something else to bitch about

    Yes it probably leaned toward racisim but that cannot be proven. So months ago when Hispanics marched in the street protests carrying the Mexican flag...what was that..free speech? This type of thing is going to go on unless WE stop it. Our country is the way it is today because we didn't do anything or too little. ed nichols

    Why do people believe they have a right to "not be offended"? This is not a human right.....

    wow! That's hard to believe. Have you ever been to San Antonio? It has a very large Hispanic population. The link to the supposed article takes me a page that is no longer there.

    If this really happened, it's very poor taste on those involved. Almost moronic and certainly racist undertones.

    WOW.

    BTW, there were Mexicans in San Antonio before most of us were born. And yes, anyone can walk down the street with any flag they choose to carry. I'm going to walk down my street tonight with a Mexican flag in one hand and an ATA flag in the other.

    Viva de Los Estados Unidos!

    So I suppose if the hispanic team would have won and started chanting Mexico, Mexico, they would have been media darlings. Nobody would have said a damn thing against them, so as not to offend them. I give up............

    why would this group chant, USA, USA? All in good sportsmanship I suppose? Should the local high school association just overlook this?

    Do they not have a team name to chant?

    Once again I'll remind you that there are Hispanic Americans in San Antonio that were there before you were born.

    Whose America is it?

    So Mexicans that are born here aren't Americans?

    And American's are elitists?

    Seems you speak with a forked tongue, and forget what country you live in

    I agree with Yakimaman. It was inappropriate. The losing team was made up of American youths also. It is the equivalent of actually calling them a derogatory name as if they were not Americans. The chant "USA" applied to both teams and the people chanting made it seem like the losing team were NOT Americans. Remember, the Mexicans were there LONG before the "Americans" were. A case could be made that Americans immigrating into Texas stole the land from the Mexicans

    I think there was a war, and Texas won the war, are we going to turn back history and cede all the lands won by wars to the losers?

    Y'all are really digging deep

    I do believe Santa Anna lost that land. To the Victor goes the spoils.

    Tincanman, you asked "Whose America is it?" Do you really not know. It is not the Mexicans anylonger, although they seem to think it is. Florida once belonged to the Spanish. Should we give it back to them? Most of the land America owns belonged to Native Americans, should we do the same them? Generetions and generations ago most Africans in America were slaves. Do we who have never owned a slave owe the present black Americans some of whom did come from slaves? I would be willing to bet that any Afro American in this Country was never a slave. What's done is done, we have to mave on and quit looking back. At the turn of the century the Irish, the Germans, the Jews, the Poles were all discriminated against. It's in the past and should have no present debt. Mike.

    PS: Were all of the mexican kids on the other team here legally? That was not mentioned. The Country is constantly being driven apart and this President is doing nothing to stop it. He is in fact the driver of the wege.
