Profanity doesn’t have a place in a high school gym
I recently attended a varsity basketball game between Brewster and Cascade high schools.
I have a niece who plays for Brewster and attends a Christian private school. I am also the bus driver who transported the Brewster team there.
During warm-ups, most schools play music. When I heard the profanity coming from the sound system, I was quite offended. Rap music is fast, but is this really where we are these days?
My parents were upset when the Beatles came around. Elvis was also quite controversial.
Is it just Cascade High School allows and condones these type of words to be transmitted in the presence of children and mature adults?

State Department of Fish and Wildlife Sgt. Dan Christensen recorded this video of the release of a mama bear and her three cubs Friday, Sept. 11, 2015. The bears were captured in a tree at Esther Bricques Winery near Ellisforde. The original video was much longer. We've edited out several minutes of footage between the cubs leaving the first trap and the mama and cub leaving the second trap. Enlarge
