This one is for the “WTF?!?!?!?” file. I swear, I thought this was a headline from a report from The Onion.

SAN ANTONIO –
A local school district is apologizing after an apparent incident of racism at a boys high school basketball game this past weekend.
When the final whistle blew Saturday, Alamo Heights celebrated a convincing victory over San Antonio Edison.
Alamo Heights Head Coach Andrew Brewer said he was proud of his team.
“Tremendously proud,” Brewer said. “Tremendously. It’s the best group of kids.”
But it was just after the trophy presentation when the coach was not proud of the chant coming from Alamo Heights fans.
“USA, USA, USA,” they chanted.
San Antonio Independent School District officials took the chant as a racial insult to a school with all minority players from a school with mostly white ones.
On the KSAT 12 Defenders Facebook page, Santos Villarreal’s post reads “this has to stop.”
SAISD Spokeswoman Leslie Price heard about the incident after it had happened.
“This is very disrespectful to our students,” Price said.
She said the district is glad the coach put a stop to the chant immediately and hopes Alamo Heights addresses it quickly.
“It is surprising and it’s disappointing to hear that anyone would be out there making those kind of remarks,” Price said.
Edison students who attended Saturday’s game were shocked when they heard the chant. Some thought the fans of the victors should have been better behaved.
Ruby Arredondo and Forest Lebaron are seniors at Edison and Julian Castellano is a junior.
“I was very surprised,” Castellano said. “Very appalled.”
“They didn’t really have any class,” Arredondo said.
“It just rubbed us the wrong way,” Lebaron said.
Alamo Heights Superintendent Dr. Kevin Brown also apologized for the chant.
“We just hope that people know that that’s not who we are and we’re not going to let it happen again,” Brown said.
Let me get this straight; white American kids chanting “USA! USA! USA!” because they happen to be Americans and are happy they won basketball game is now racist. Wait Wha? 😯
Here is a novel idea to the minorities who were offended by this; how about you idiots just take your offended asses back to the Countries that you came from? If this Country and it’s people and customs and prosperity offend you that much, then go the hell home and leave we Americans to our culture.
If it were not bad enough that these kids are pegged as racist, they are now FORCED to apologize for something that they are not even remotely guilty of and are now banned from attending any of the school’s games. If I were the parents of any of these kids, I would get me a lawyer and sue the living hell out this Anti-American school district. Furthermore, I would remove my kid from this school district and either enroll him or her in a private school; like a Christian school or I would Home-school the kid!
Again, folks; this is your far-leftist mentality that is rampant in this Country; and in, off all places, TEXAS no less! This is why I have continued to blog, after the end of the Iraq War. Not because I am some sort of a great writer or a wealthy Republican or even a wealthy Conservative; it is because of idiotic nonsense like this right here. It is what Andrew Breitbart was fighting against and it is what we as patriot Americans must take a stand against!
I am Andrew Breitbart….. and this is war. 😡
Update #2: Oh and Tina? Since when is Nationalism a bad thing? Pride in ones Country is not racist; I know you did not say that. But the idea that someone should not be a Nationalist, is absurd. Now, White Nationalist? That is a horse of different color. Those folk are evil, but regular old Nationalists, who love their Country, like me — are usually harmless.
Again, I stand by my statement; you do not like here — get the heck out and go back where you came from. Racism? Nope. It is called REALISM. 😡
