If you thought holding signs with bible quotes before football games is offensive, take a look at this:
From All Alabama:
McAdory High School has issued a public apology for a “Trail of Tears” banner that was held up during a weekend football game versus the Pinson Valley Indians.
The sign, which originally began making the internet rounds through a Tumblr blog post, reads:
“Hey Indians, get ready to leave in a Trail of Tears Round 2”
Fortunately the school administration sees the problem correctly:
On the McAdory High School website, Principal Tod Humphries said he accepts “full responsibility that arrangements were not made to have the signs pre-approved before the ballgame.”
The person who is usually in charge of approving such signs, he said, is currently out on maternity leave.
