When we first say this story, we were shocked. But we then saw it was in Texas, and we weren’t so shocked anymore.

    If “white power” is a cheer for their school, I’d say the attitued is institutionalized and condoned by the district. After all, the district hires the cheerleading coach and decides what cheers are acceptable. I’ll be interested to see if this “investigation” goes anywhere.

If the cheer is a part of every game, regardless of the opponents ethnic ratio, then there’s not much of an argument, unless racial slurs are used against black players on those teams.
