School Warns Students Not To Chant ‘USA’
Administrators at a California school are warning students not to chant “USA!” because doing so could be viewed as offensive and intolerant.
Officials at Vista Del Lago High School in Folsom, not far from Sacramento, say the chant is divisive and inappropriate at sporting events.
Said Folsom Cordova Unified Communications Director Daniel Thigpen: “To practice empathy, to practice kindness and to practice patriotism. You can do both.”
The California Interscholastic Federation, which oversees high school athletics, addressed the concerns with local districts, according to CBS 13.
