Pineapples Now Racist: HS Band Members Suspended. No, Not That One Time, At Bandcamp?


RACISM!!! Everything is racist. Everything. And a group of high school band members just found that out. The hard way.

Just to make the point about how invasive this is, it didn’t happen in Portland or Seattle or San Francisco. It happened outside of Houston, Texas .

The gift is supposed to encourage good sportsmanship. Humble ISD, instead, said it was racist.

Seven band members presented their gift to their counterparts in the Summer Creek High School band on the field before the game. Along with candy and a decorated bucket for Halloween was a small watermelon, coconut, pineapple and watermelon gum.

The school district made a statement.

Blah, blah, blah, racisim, blah, blah, #BlackLivesMatter, blah, blah, blah, racism, homophobia, blah, blah, blah, intolerant, blah, racist, blah, blah, blah.

Earlier in the summer our local supermarket snuck one by everybody.


We live in a WHITE! part of town and we’re insensitive. We’re expecting a big #BlackLivesMatter demonstration at Frys next summer. And, I’m guessing this will be out too.


On second thought, the fried chicken may survive if it’s all white meat.
