Because it is racist and the person that posted it is oblivious to that or just a straight up racist.

It isn't racist to understand that Manhasset's demographics have been changing significantly over the past decade or two, and that the new residents care more about Kumon than lacrosse.

Maybe they'll have a good fencing team (LOL) in fifteen years, but I wouldn't bet on them in the Woodstick. Pretending this isn't the case might make you nerds feel better but it won't change reality.

Aren’t you forgetting about the Manhasset kids (really the parents) that choose private school over public school when they get to the high school level?

Can you share your rationale? Cause screaming racist twice in one sentence doesn’t make it so.
People with a strong appreciation for lacrosse are aging out or moving away and being replaced by younger families from NYC or from areas with little to no history of lacrosse. Saying they should assimilate and learn the game might be racist but no one is saying that. The shifting demographic is the natural evolution that occurs everywhere, it might hurt lax but it strengthens the community in other areas. Diversity is good, right?

It's funny to me that your kid plays a white privilege sport and you're calling people racist. Pot, meet kettle.

Nah lacrosse is just a great game. You are just proving my point about the previous poster.

How is discussing demographics racist? If a town has a certain make-up that does not emphasize one activity over another the participation in that activity will go down. This is why your seeing the increasing popularity of lacrosse in non-traditional areas like Florida and Texas. As more ex-NYers move out of state they bring the game with them.

Manhasset is still undefeated. Ranked 17th best high school in NY. That is reality. Nerds good at lacrosse and smart achievers. Yeah thats terrible.

Sure. The 1st post was using racist stereotyping if you look at it. The second post was a racist joke. The demographics discussion is accurate.

I’m not woke enough to even begin to fathom how this is racist or even wrong.

But you’re a stunad because clearly the admins removed the disgraceful post. I hope the person that wrote it thinks twice. While anonymity makes people brazen, it is still easy to shut down a certain IP address.
