It's cringy chanting it for example if both competitors are Americans. I occasionally notice this happens during UFC fights when one competitor has a light (or black) complexion while the other competitor has oriental (or foreign) characteristics. Both competitors are Americans. But since one is oriental (or foreign) looking, the audience chants "USA, USA, USA" in favor of the light (or black) complexion competitor.

The majority of the audience chanting is not well informed about the participants. They just chant based on what they see in front of them.
Joe Rogan noticed this and he says, "that some people are just assholes or don't even want to be bothered to learn."

Context & intent are everything. Lets say you're at a military funeral, and 3 guys start chanting "USA!" while staring at the soldier's family. I'd be thinking HOLY CRAP WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?! I think most people would be horrified, and be really offended.

Now what if those 3 guys were also soldiers and friends of the family, and in their grief sought to reaffirm the noble sacrifice of that soldier for his/her country? The intent was not harmful, but to demonstrate unity. It was a terrible sacrifice, but served a greater good. Ok, it'd still be really weird, and I think really misguided, but is it offensive? What if the family started chanting back?

You are correct. Idk what country you are from but if I was from there I would probably be chanting that countries name. The left somehow equates patriotism to racism and xenophobia (meanwhile they cry Russia all day). Also something about it being offensive to illegal immigrants that are in the USA.



Whoaaa

What is this madness?

Where is this from?

That is horrendous.... I bet the people that wrote that say it is okay for blacks, asians, hispoanic.... (Insert eththinic minority group here)..... to be patriotic and celebrate their culture, history and who they are as a group of people, but as soon as it white person does it, they are considered racist, white priveledge scum bags.

Then people wonder why across the EU, UK and North America more right wing views are on the racist.

As everyone else is allowed to have a culture except white people....

And that is a horrendously danagerous idea to promote and push on children.....

So so dangerous and damaging.
