LOL A Texas school district has filed a complaint alleging that students from a rival school engaged in racism by chanting â€œUSA, USAâ€ at a basketball game. The students involved in the incident were reprimanded and forced to apologize. The San Antonio Independent School District filed the complaint with the University Interscholastic League, the governing body for athletics in Texas. They allege that students at Alamo Heights High School began chanting â€œUSA, USAâ€ after they defeated Edison High School to win a region basketball championship. Edisonâ€™s team is predominantly Hispanic, said Leslie Price, a spokesperson for the San Antonio ISD. â€œThe implication as they are not American citizens,â€ Price told Fox News. â€œWe understand competiveness and rivalry, but you need to choose your words and think about the meaning behind them.â€ Price said she believes the â€œUSA, USAâ€ chant was racially motivated. â€œIt was chanted selectively at a school that is predominantly Hispanic and there was understanding of that,â€ she said. Price said the school district was bombarded with a number of people who found the â€œUSA, USAâ€ chant to be â€œvery disrespectful.â€ â€œThat might be chanted at international soccer games,â€ she said. â€œBut this is not a chant that these students chant at all of their basketball games. It was selective.â€ According to local news accounts, the chanting occurred immediately after Alamo Heights won the championship. It lasted about five seconds before the head coach ordered the students to stop. Alamo Heights ISD Superintendent Kevin Brown told MySanAntonio.com that he had apologized to San Antonio ISD officials. â€œUnfortunately, after the game, we had a handful of students who made a bad decision and weâ€™re very sorry it happened,â€ Brown told the newspaper. â€œThey made a mistake and weâ€™re going to use this as a learning experience.â€ Price said itâ€™s not the first time their students have been victims of insensitive chants. Last year students at another school chanted â€œUSA, USAâ€ and â€œArizona.â€ It happened during the national discussion on Arizonaâ€™s controversial immigration bill. The school districtâ€™s athletic director, Gil Garza, told the newspaper that the chant cannot be ignored. â€œOur community is fed up,â€ he told MySanAntonio.com. â€œItâ€™s really frustrating that kids work so hard to get to this level and thereâ€™s another group of kids degrading them.â€ Chris Schmidt, a spokesperson for the University Interscholastic League told Fox News they had received the complaint. Both schools will now be required to investigate the incident. Schmidt said there is no specific rule forbidding students or fans from chanting â€œUSA, USAâ€ at basketball games. Television station KSAT said the students who chanted â€œUSA USAâ€ were banned from the state title games and will be forced to apologize. â€œWe jst hope that people know that thatâ€™s not who we are and weâ€™re not going to let it happen again,â€ Brown told KSAT.
