In the latest bit of what deplorable thing is going on in America, we get this story out of New York. At a game between Brighton (N.Y.) and Pittsford Sutherland (N.Y.), students changed “we want Slurpees” at a Indian basketball player taking free-throws.
The superintendents of Brighton and Pittsford released a joint statement Monday, via WROC 8:
“We were very disappointed to learn of this incident. We have been working with our colleagues in both districts throughout the weekend to address intolerant and unacceptable fan behavior. That work continues today. The students involved took full responsibility for their behavior, and attempts are being made to right this wrong between the students and to address the long- term learning that can arise from the disappointing behaviors of a few.

The student who led the chant was immediately removed from the game and could face further discipline.
