Over on Overheard, the People Newspapers blog, Merritt Patterson points out an interesting letter to the editor printed in the Dallas Morning News:

Would any of the parents and fans of the South Oak Cliff boys basketball team who attended the playoff game against Highland Park last Saturday afternoon and repeatedly screamed "Don't let that white boy shoot" care to help me explain to my 6-year-old son what skin color has to do with basketball?

William Olsson, Dallas

Anybody know anything about THAT? I know there was press coverage of the game, but I didn't see any mention of that particular cheer.
