Racially-Charged Tweets Fly After High School Basketball Game
Mahopac High School lost to Mount Vernon High School in Westchester County, NY, and what happened after that wasn’t pretty.
“That’s why you shouldn’t let monkeys out of their cages #MtVernonZoo,” read a tweet by Ryan Sarfaty…
Mount Vernon’s team is made up mostly of black players.
After losing, one Mahopac fan took to Twitter, posting a picture of a confederate flag. There are even claims someone pulled out an actual flag at the game.
In another tweet, apparently poking fun at the single-parent epidemic in the black community, another student identified on Twitter as MikeHeinzinger remarked, “tough loss boys, but at least we can talk to our dads about it.”
