Deadspin alerted us to video footage last night of fans of the St. Louis Cardinals confronting Ferguson protesters (via Argus Streaming News). More than anything we wish this heartwarming video footage that shows that deep down we’re all good, but instead this is more along the lines of heartpoisoning video footage that shows that not even all that deep down it doesn’t take that much to get some people to say some pretty damn racist shit. Some of the lowlights:
- 10:25 - a Cardinal fan yells at protesters: “We’re the ones who gave all y'all the freedoms that you have!”
- 14:54 - the Cardinals fans chant “USA! USA! USA!”
- 16:43 - a Cardinals fan chants “Africa! Africa! Africa!” at the protesters.
- Start of video until end - viewer of video keeps saying under breath “Oh Jesus, no.”
