Taco MacArthur has a little shameless behaviour in the past

I was curious about this. I had a similar experience in high school. Parents knew I was participating and that's about it.

I cant speak for your experience or Tacos, but in this particular instance one of the articles clearly states that there had been issues with the parents from this team being a little rowdy at some games and the guy from the school board admitted to being in attendance, so I am not giving them a pass. They knew!!!

It's a shame that someone shinning a light on this is accused of race baiting.

It's like people aren't even smart enough to look up the freaking definition of the term.

Blue did with his title, and like others said, really didn't comment much on it.

As I said, its a shame it happened, but the "surrounding communities" did in fact step up and bring the issue to light.

Isn't it a little ironic to have someone commenting on racial sensitivity who goes by the moniker "redskin"!?!?!?! (Just pulling your leg!!)

So you are saying its derogatory to call an Irishman "Irish"!?! As a nationality, the Irish have been discriminated against at home and here in the US for centuries. There are many pejorative terms that have been used to insult the Irish. But there has never been an Irishman born who ever considered it an insult to be called "Irish". I don't need a history lesson. You need a dictionary.
