My mom just told me about this and I was trying to find info online about it. It sickens me that she said there is very little action being taken from this upper class high school other than letters of apology.

Me-The sad thing about truth, is that it has the ability to repel people.

Ugh. It appears the issue goes above and beyond the obvious prejudice and racism. The majority of the players play year round "select" soccer-something that is thousands of $$ and waay beyond the reach of the Omaha South players. It's also elitist and ignorance. What is disturbing to me, is imagining the conversations that must take place around the dinner table of these kids.
Good for the senator that has spoken out!
But it all makes me want to :Puke

Me-The sad thing about truth, is that it has the ability to repel people.
