DALLAS -A basketball game played between Flower Mound High School and Plano East has been submerged into the spotlight and not because of an “amazing dunk” or once in a lifetime shot that was played during the game. Instead, an image was tweeted of Flower Mound students holding up bigoted signs that read, “White Power.” Twitter was set on fire as a result and the image went viral.
Students at Flounder Mound claim that the signs were a mistake. Apparently, the sign reading “White” represented the school’s uniform color and the “Power,” well … there is no explanation for that. This only leads any sane person to conclude there was no bizarre in coincidence in those signs and that they were meant to be bigoted.
One Plano East athlete stated, “Our student section started pointing at the sign. That’s when it clicked into everyone’s mind… ‘Whoa… what are these guys doing?’ And the teachers came and took the signs down.”
Dale Hansen–News 8 Sportscaster–made some very powerful and courageous remarks regarding the Flower Mound students, that speak volumes about the upbringing of racists–his own included. Hansen’s words are very honorable and his honesty is commendable.
