Last night, this sign went up at a McAdory High School football game.
I am absolutely disgusted that this sign was allowed to go up, and that it was not stopped by school administrators, and that after this, no one has mentioned it.

This is disgusting.

THE OTHER TEAM BEING THE INDIANS STILL MAKES THIS SIGN SUPER SUPER SUPER FUCKING RACIST.
THIS IS NOT A HARD CONCEPT.

Come on, ABC News, that’s the best headline you could come up with?
So these exist. I may have to send some down to Memphis for a certain lady.
