The gorilla should have thrown his own feces. That would make me go to a game. Make a bad call ref, he'll throw a handful at you. Thats entertainment. Let us hope the gorilla appears at every game.

His mom did pass away shortly ago. This racism crap needs to stop. Mayfield quit gripping. If y'all would of stomped graves then nothing would of been said about it. Or even it was another school so grow up. No one is against african Americans and the theme wasnt for to make fun of the African Americans either.

Go ape: that's disgusting! Maybe we should throw your feces on you! And it still doesn't stop hate from your mouth from pouring out!

GC: thank you! The hate needs to stop.

Think parents need to pay attention to some of their elementary children's books they are forced to read! Their slavery books have many racial slurs in it for immature minds to read, and immature minds think the slurs are funny & use them!

Bottom line...GC showed how the really feel. They got busted..got confronted and didnt deny it. At the point someone is offended and lets you know...you shut it down..regardless how you feel about it...they didnt......so what other inference can you draw from that...they didnt care who they offended...fine...now your in a hell of a jam for it...as you should be....stop whining about it being misinterpreted because it wasnt.

to whom it may concern, um why dont you worry about rasing your own damn kids and mind your own damn buisness. there was no harm in the meaning of this THEME OR GORRILLA SUIT. people are more dramatic then teenagers. if your so worried that you look like a gorilla thats your problem. it was a THEME, not meaning anything racist. sorry we dont wanna wear togas every damn game. do you go to graves county right now? NO. so you dont know what goes on so dont act like you do. i swear, adults should start acting more like ADULTS then like little kids. BUT THEN mayfield calls us racist but then starts making fun of a little kid whos a midget? bet ya didnt know that did you? and wants to talk shit to a sweet kid whos mom died. yall are going to hell, hope you enjoy it.:)

What gets me is, 90% of graves county fans, alumni, students, parents, teacher and faculty are die hard university of kentucky fans.. That being said, ive never understood the racism in the graves co schools especially towards mayfield, bc when uk plays a basketball game, what are they watching?? 5 black kids going up and down the court representing Our state.. While you eagle fans are hooping and hollering at the kentucky wildcats on the tv screen this march, stop and think what youre doing because those kids that play at uk are no different than those that play for mayfield... I remember a few years ago, the old eagle faithfull chomping at the bit while ol Randon cavette was marching ip and down their court winning ballgames for them, but i guess its different when the colored wear blue... He was a mayfield boy at that too..... This is y i cant be apart of anything with the county school system...

[QUOTE who="??"]Can you explain why it was racism ? I've been to games all over this nation college, nba and highschool games and have seen gorillas and all kinds of crazy fans dressed up.. Even at Murray State game recently there was a gorrilla .[/QUOTE]

I'm sure whoever is in a monkey suit at those games don't make monkey noises when and african american is up to shoot the ball!! It's different when someone is dressed up for fun and they are being APPROPRIATE

Truth is mayfield got their pride hurt when they got beat and now are crying racism to get even. They are making this out to be far more than it ever was. That is the mayfield battle call if we cant beat graves then there has to be a reason --bad refs--bad calls-- or graves is all racist. Never the truth you just got beat no racism. but you will cry to the naacp and they will fly in and stir things up about stuff that never happened.and you think race relations are bad now? It will only make things worse. but someone will listen to your crying and drama.poor mayfield ha ha

You say African-American? Tell me one player or coach at Mayfield that was born in Africa and moved to America. You can't. They are Americans.

I agree with enough already. My question is this,who came up with the theme for the Graves County school that night? Is that person the one that should be called on the carpet. not the boy. As a product of Graves County I will say that they do get a little to intense at times about sports. IT IS A GAME!

You all don't realize that YOU all are playing the race card. Making something bigger than it was. No monkey sounds were made. There were other "jungle" animal themes. Some of you have made comments about movies on this subject too. Some of you think you know it all like typical children do. If you all filled your hearts with love, hate can & will be illiminated from hearts & minds. Not to mention from mouth. Life is too short to have so much hate talk or hate on heart. Life passes you by whenever hate stays near & dear.

VERY WELL SAID!! I SO AGREE.. THAT IS SO FUNNY AND SO TRUE... I bet they will rethink that.. cheering for a bunch of blacks.. They dont realize that do they.. HA HA.. not so much now racist huh GC.. Even some of the people that moved their kids to Mayfield from GC have been telling us the same stuff. They are so glad to get out of GC because how they act and the kind of reputation they have. Oh, and YES we have some very smart kids too.. That was proven at the ballgame when they called 6 of our boys out to the floor for acedemics and out of those 5, there were 3 that were black.. If I recall GC ONLY had 2 maybe 3...so before you start putting our kids down and saying stuff about us then get your facts straight.

They also cruise around in their big ol' tucks blaring Wiz Khalifa or Drake, like half of the Marshall County boys do. Epitome of hypocrisy.
