The thug culture that sadly seems to pervade the sport of basketball was on full display at Gar-Field Senior High School this week when a “disturbance” erupted in the parking lot following the “Hoop Fest” charity fundraiser and a seventeen year old student received multiple stab wounds in the back. Meanwhile, a different sort of thug culture was on display at Stonewall Jackson High School where an eighteen year old ninth-grader (huh?) by the name of Keith Diego Cano Anaya was arrested for inflicting head injuries on an unidentified fifteen year old ninth grader in an after-school altercation so severe that the victim required an airlift to Prince William Hospital.
Yeah, culture is a relative thing, and all cultures are equally valid, meriting their “celebration”. Much more of this nonsense, and our celebrations of cultural diversity are going to increasingly be held at the graveside.
