    The University of Southern Mississippi revoked scholarships and dismissed five members of its pep band for taking part in a racially-insensitive chant directed at aKansas State University player during last week's NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament in Pittsburgh.

    In a statement, the university said the five had their pep band scholarships revoked, were removed from the band and will be required to complete a two-hour cultural sensitivity training course this week.
    The names of the students were not released.
    "The students have been forthcoming, cooperative, contrite and sincerely remorseful," USM Vice President for Student Affairs Joe Paul said in a statement. "They acted rashly and inappropriately, and now see the gravity of their words and actions."
    A university investigation determined that the five were ones chanting, 'Where's your green card," while KSU point guard Angel Rodriguez shot free throws late in USM's 70-64 loss to the Wildcats in a first-round game.
    USM President Martha Saunders issued a public apology from the school to Rodriguez, a native of Puerto Rico who attended high school in Florida.
    Interim athletic director Jeff Hammond went to the player's hotel after the game to apologize.

    Down here in south hell the white kids chant USA when playing a mostly tejano school , thing is they aren't saying USA they are saying You Esse. I loved how they never explained that part of what was being said. It was never meant as USA.

    I find that it's best to not say anything and to acknowledge someone's presence with a nod.

    The Constitution is an absolutely brilliant document.One problem is that its creators couldn't account for the fact that people would become too lazy, fat and stupid to understand what it means. Just like any other legal document or laws the more vague it is the more the criminals can twist it to meet their needs and make their points and then crush common sense (Shout out to Thomas Paine) :woot:

    Once this country fails the next Constitution will be written in crayon, drafted by mental patients and written in another language to meet the needs of the people left ;)
