In an Illinois high school, a white high school coach cut 8 black students from a varsity basketball team. Some blacks in the area are plenty hot, with a couple church leaders calling for a boycott of classes and basketball games. (Although one of the ministers would “ask students to boycott in a rotation so that they don’t miss consecutive days and fall behind in their classes”, so kudos to him.)
The response by the school’s principal, however, was most telling: “But I don’t understand the racial (accusations). The entire team is African-American.”
I do have a feeling there’s more to the story than the article tells us. People can’t be this daft, right?
