Basically the player was running around in celebration when he was called an 'ape' by a 13yo girl. 'Ape' is a racial slur for aboriginal people like 'nigga' is about African Americans. The young girl was escorted out of the stadium which her grandmother refused to escort her to the security room. So WWYD if this was your 13yo being racist enough that it made national news?

I would be mortified, and she'd be punished. FWIW, 'nigga' isn't seen as a racial slur where I am, but 'nigger' sure is.

Oh sorry - in Australia they spell it with an A not a ER. :/ And the NRL has proposed a ban for life - but that doesn't teach anything does it?

No. l'm an Aussie, we spell it nigger. BF and l were watching the game and suporters of that side are a national disgrace.

Hmm, maybe it's just my neck of the woods that use 'A'. oh well - that's besides the point. And I've noticed that though a few times with this team. It just seemed shocking from a 13yo. She seemed pretty shocked that she was being taken away because she dropped her jumper straight onto her grandma's head without even realizing.

Unfortunetely the sporting community (even though they have their own courts and hearings and things for things that happen at games) can't do anything besides ban her from the place. What they're dying to do however is force her into a educational program about racism and what it does. Apparently she didn't think it was  a big deal.

i would probably smack the shit out of her then explain to her that there are plenty of mean things people could call her as well that would hurt her feelings so she should think twice before calling anyone a nasty name.
