I think this is an often glazed over point in today's clash of ideals: many people feel entitled to an explanation if someone disagrees with them.

Well I for one am glad that RSP has been able to divine the truth of the matter.

Normally I'm white, but today I'm self identifying as black-Hispanic.

I'm a Jew. We're white when that's a bad thing but not when it's a good thing-- kind of like lighter skinned Latinos.

Although you bring up a salient point (that being that NOTHING true can ever be divined in the confines of RSP), I ask a follow up question - does it really matter?

There was a fight, that much is true. It was centered around one guy wearing clothing that was offensive to another - I think that is true as well.

What we may never know the truth about was whether Mendozza really got in Dahl's personal space to ridicule him for not being offended like he was.

If someone wears a Steelers jersey in my presence, I too would be offended - but I won't punch him in the face over it.

Quintessential "Identity Politics" defined in one simple posting.

Kind of like how George Zimmerman was a "white guy" until it was noted that he wasn't.

But, if you were so inclined and said "Why are you wearing that shirt? Don't you know it makes you like like an imbecile?", would the Steelers fan punch you in the face over it? Such are the unknowns in this altercation.

I said something similar to my daughter's boyfriend. He didn't punch me, but he said something about "Superbowls" and "how many" and "Browns" and some other unintelligible thing...so I dropped the issue.

Uh. I've had to fill out a lot of forms over my life where I had to select "White, Non-Hispanic".

I mean, I've always thought it was a weird distinction, but it certainly isn't new or anything.

Anyhow, in lieu of greater details, it is totally possible one or both of them were utter twats.

Hopefully dating a Steelers fan is the height of her "annoying my parents' stage of rebellion. It could be worse I suppose.

There are other reasons why I don't fully approve of her choice in boyfriends...the least of which is him being a Steelers fan. I have more disdain for him being a Buckeyes fan over the Steelers thing.

We have friends who have a son that is one year older than our daughter (he is now a freshman in college, and my daughter is a senior in high school). We would actually like her to go to that college where he is next year, which will be different than where her boyfriend goes, so that she will "break up" with her current boyfriend, and then possibly date our friend's son while she is there at the same college as him. Well, it's a good school, too, with a program she is interested in pursuing, so that is not the only reason we would be satisfied if she chose that college. But if a boyfriend switch occurs, I won't fight it...

One of the reasons we (my wife and I) don't like him is because he has "broken up" with her on three different occasions, and then come back a few weeks later realizing how much he hates being alone. My daughter is such a sweetheart, and really does like him, and therefore accepts his miscreant behavior. She already knows we disapprove of them still being together, and she may eventually break it off before the end of the first semester. Which would be nice.

Our friend's son, on the other hand, is one of the nicest and most respectful gentlemen I have ever met. I wish more kids were like him, especially college boys. "Misogyny" would no longer be part of the English language if more young men were like him.
