Where’s the outrage over racist taunts at football game?

Really? A week after the Stanwood football players, and the students’ section hurled racist remarks at the players, fans and cheerleaders from the visiting Lakes High School and not one letter to the editor? (“Investigator to review racist taunts at Stanwood football game,” The Herald, Nov. 9)

School officials not promising expulsion and behavioral training? An anthropology lesson: Jesus would have been as dark-skinned as many of the victims of these racial assaults. Irony in your face.

To the parents, you too are to blame for not doing your job in properly teaching your children. Without consequences, no lessons are learned; expect a repeat. Anyone associated with this wrong needs to held accountable. The same for the cowards who turn their eye. Coaches, parents, administration, you make me sick. White “Christian” nationalists are America’s Taliban.
