In two other cases of stupid, we turn our attention back to the deep South, where a two high schools display their ignorance of the history of their country and their local area in the name of sports. First, we have McAdory High School in McAlla, Alabama, just outside of Birmingham. The school's cheerleading team decided to put together a banner for their football team to run through for their playoff match against the Pinson Valley Indians. I'll let the story continue here: http://www.indianz.com/News/2013/011815.asp http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/201...-of-tears-banner-at-high-school-football-game http://nativenewsonline.net/current...rs-sign-brings-discipline-cheerleading-squad/ Next, we shift to Dyersburg, Tennessee, where the Dyersburg Trojans were playing the Jackson Northside Indians. I'll let the story pick up here: http://www.indianz.com/News/2013/011853.asp http://www.motherjones.com/mojo/201...gh-school-football-team-promoting-trail-tears Funnily enough, four of the five tribes (Chickasaw, Cherokee, Choctaw, and Creek) forced onto the Trail of Tears, came from present-day Alabama and Tennessee. The cheerleaders in Alabama were disciplined for their actions, but nothing has been done as of yet to the Tennessee incident. And while I won't draw parallels to entire races being persecuted for one groups actions (as some have recently made in other threads), it really makes you wonder how some could be ignorant of not only their country's history, but history local to the very areas which they live, especially during November, which is Native American Month in the US.
