Kirby: University of Utah fight song may be better left behind
< Previous Page
"Jupiter in a cake of fat.
Eat the meat, chew the gristle,
That will make a [N-word] whistle!"
Future church, civic and political leaders once brainlessly yelled this spirit stuff at school events. No one but a racist would dream of doing it today, which perhaps shows just how far we’ve come with our hallowed traditions.
Some things are better left behind. But since I felt the same way about school in general, I could be wrong.
