Not sure how I feel about this. I don’t think it bothers me very much and it seems like a lot to do about nothing. At Widefield High School, a majority White school, in the 1970s our crowd was known for doing things to rattle the other team. As far as I know, they started the whole “reading a newspaper during introductions” thing.  Was it unsportsmanlike? Nope. Was it rude? Absolutely. Was it racist? Nope.

There is true racism in today’s America. It was put on display for the entire world to see by the election of Donald Trump. (Hold your outrage. You and I both know it’s true. The only  difference is I don’t have to pretend it’s not in some desperate attempt to save my own morality.) This, however, is not it.
