School Chant of ‘White’ for School Color is Banned by High School Principal

From The College Fix:

This past week Principal John Fidler of East Hampton High School in Connecticut thought it would be a bright idea to prohibit a longtime school sports cheer consisting of a single word.

That word is “white.”

The school’s colors are blue and white, and it seems a popular cheer among students — seniors, specifically — has been simply chanting “White!” and sporting events.

According to WFSB-3, Fidler believes the current “social climate” warranted the ban: “Given the social climate across our country, our use of the ‘White’ cheer is under suspension. Please show your pride in our town and in our school through other means when cheering on our teams,” he wrote.
