Please enlighten me to the racist nature of Domingo’s observations of CdM parents. Ya’lls disdain for Domingo is worn on your sleeve and, although may be warranted, makes even more suspect and irresponsible your assignment of a vile, abhorrent mind-set to him for this fairly innocent observation and conveyance of, frankly quite an old joke (the “never knew there were so many black Catholics” see ND football for last 30-40 years).OCurbanlegend wrote:C'mon Al
Domingo's comments are absolutely racist. Why is it so funny that the CDM parents are confused by how many Black Catholics there are in Orange County? Why does it even matter to him? If all those same kids were white non-catholics coming from those same areas would it be some big National event? Also Domingo just started another thread asking if the last "local championship to be won by local kids was between SM and San Clemente? or something to that effect. It's all ridiculous. The fact of the matter is kids have been coming to Mater Dei from the I.E. and L.A. and Long Beach and San Clemente and all over for many many years and many of them NOT Catholic! That is clearly NOT the issue, the issue is they are minority kids now plain and simple.
On a separate note Ben Humphries was at MD just last year visiting with all his old coaches. He said at that time he really wished his Brother would have come to MD. That is was a big deal when he decided NOT to come to MD and it split their household apart for a minute. He also said it had more to do with his Mom and his brother wanting him to be able to play Basketball as well. And apparently they did not feel like that opportunity would be available at MD because of McNight's stance on his guys playing more than one sport. He has never been great about making accommodations for football players to play basketball. Not saying Ben did not make that comment Saturday but he absolutely said that last year.
Seriously. If you need a guide I’ll provide you with the Webster’s definition of racism and racist. But I am really interested to know how you arrive at a call of racism on that post. In my book, ain’t too many things worse to be called except a criminal, a bad parent or a wife beater. And thus I try to use that term most sparingly, if at all. Unless such is overt, obvious and blatant (ie; a swastika tattoo), who am I to say I know what is in a mans heart? And who are you to do that same?
