Last month in Mississippi, a kid wore pink cleats to both a football game and the next following practice, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month and his grandmother, a breast cancer survivor, who provided him the cleats in the first place.

So his coach kicked him off the team for it, denying him not only the chance to play, but the chance to graduate from high school.

Are people just fucking stupid or what?

I'll go with stupidity on this one. I'm not a fan of the pink color, but kicking someone off a team for wearing pink cleats, unless there was a specific dress code, is short-sighted.

I think the Football Coach has Breast Cancer. That must be it. Or he's about to get it.
He's offended looking at a guy wearing pink cleats for CANCER AWARENESS? That's so retarded, I can't even comment on it.

[Before reading article] Perhaps the school considered it a gang color? Which doesn't make it any less retarded.

[After reading]: Actually, another thing that Cracked has taught me to witness: The title of this article is "Mississippi player kicked off team after wearing pink cleats" . In other words, a player of some kind of game, in Mississippi, got kicked off of a team of some kind (perhaps or perhaps not a team of the same game that the word "player" refers to), and at some point in his life before then, he wore pink cleats (most likely, but not necessarily, either at the team, or with the organization (in this case, a school) that hosts the team, or while out in public and spotted by a member of either.

In this case, it seems that the issue being reported on really is about pink cleats, however, it is unclear whether he was actually kicked off the team for wearing pink cleats, or whether he was kicked off for, for example, swearing at the coaches or kicking somebody, while wearing pink cleats and during a request to take them off, and that his father just *thinks* that that isn't the reason.

This article also uses the phrase "Breast Cancer" as though it were so heinous that "ACTIVITIES RELATING TO BREAST CANCER CAN NEVER BE SUPRESSED11". However, the request to remove shoes had nothing to do with breast cancer at all, and to wear colors/icons/etc. for "awareness of breast cancer" is really dumb. First of all, WHY would you specific a particular location of a disease or disorder, but not include all of the disorder/disease? Have you ever heard of rallies or support for "Asperger's Syndrome in black people" or "Tumors in the lower shin"? But more importantly, have you EVER met ANYONE (over 10) who is not aware of breast cancer?

Is there actually a gang that uses pink? I find that unlikely.

The difference between "Asperger's syndrome in black people" and "breast cancer", is that the specific breast cancer is one of the highest causes of death among women. Furthermore, breast cancer isn't the same disease as skin cancer for instance, and while the latter is still serious it is also orders of magnitude easier to treat.

Oh, and while people may be aware of breast cancer, there's still a lot people aren't aware of. For one thing, did you know that men can get it too?
