This week every player on Kenmore East High School's girls basketball team is serving a two day suspension for performing a pre-game chant that included the N-word. The team's only black player says she asked her teammates to stop doing the cheer, but they explained it was just a joke and they aren't racist. Considering that members of the Kentucky church that banned interracial couples also insisted they weren't biased, it seems this needs to be said: If you do things that demean people due to their ethnicity, you are a racist.
