It's Me Bender: "Youth" is commonly used by the media as a euphemism for "black/hispanic", generally in the context of crime, violence, STDs, or other dysfunctional behavior. Often these "youths" are legal adults.
My joke was that the parents involved in the brawl at the youth football game were most likely themselves "youths".

As I begin writing this comment, no one has mentioned GAMBLING.

The rumour goes that illegal betting rings are operating in many pee wee leagues in poor areas where lots of youths live.

I read an internet comment from a parent a few months back, saying that spectator tension has grown steadily more PALPABLE at the games. He posited that this is due to the amount of money riding a referee's decision at any given time, NOT the fact that they are all rooting for their own little Johnnies out in the middle.

He also added the tension was palpable for NON-PLAYAZ such as himself, but it was a different type of tension. This tension was due to the fact that some of these "youths" are packin' heat, and there's not a cop within cooee of the ground.

Where did all the cool Hispanics go?

In the 80's they were so much fun.

I thought Chino was largely Hispanic. Lots of tract homes for commuters. Historically, white working class with changing demographic to Hispanic over the last 15 years or so.


Yep. 80% or so mexican, with small white, black, and asian minority populations.

We should arm all youth coaches, referees and encourage spectators to pack heat. That's the answer.

That seems civilized compared to the fools rioting over the new Air Jordan sneakers.
