These High School Basketball Fans Taunted an Indian Player With a Racist "We Want Slurpees!" Chant (Video)

How's your faith in the future of this country holding up? Good? Well, prepare to have that faith shattered by a group of teenagers from Pittsford Sutherland High School in Pittsford, N.Y.

During a recent Pittsford basketball game against Brighton High School, a small group of Pittsford fans who are a part of the Pittsford team's fan club started a chant while a Brighton player was at the free throw line. No big deal, right? Fans always chant while opposing players are shooting free throws in an effort to distract them. But this particular chant—which was aimed at a Brighton player of Indian descent—featured the fan club chanting, "We want Slurpees," over and over again. Because you know, that is what Indians are known for, right?

Sigh. The chant was obviously completely uncalled for and got the leader of the Pittsford fan club ejected from the game. It also forced both schools to issue a statement and could lead to more discipline for other Pittsford fan club members.

Check out the WROC8 news report in the clip above to hear the chant. So disgusting.
