White HS students in Missouri turn their backs on mostly black basketball team

One notable feature of this story is that there are “implications” for holding up a sign with the name of the PEOTUS.

Warrensburg Superintendent Scott Patrick told NBC News that he didn’t think the incident was racially motivated and that the school has had a tradition of students turning their back when the opposing team’s players were introduced. “It’s not something that is condoned,” said Patrick. “…I think one of our students who held the Trump/Pence sign probably didn’t think of the ramifications of what they were doing.”

There is video, too.
