Lincoln High students respond to taunting t-shirt with one of their own

File under: people who shouldn’t throw stones.

In 1988, the No. 1 Miami Hurricanes football team played No. 4 Notre Dame in a thrilling game that came down to the last second. Prior to the game, a pair of Notre Dame students created a t-shirt that billed the game as Catholics vs. Convicts, since Notre Dame was a Catholic school and several Miami players had been arrested prior to the season and subsequently lost their scholarships. Fast-forward to 2021, when students at top-ranked high school football team Cathedral Catholic created a similar t-shirt as a comment on their game against Lincoln High, and posted photos to social media. The outcry was swift and severe: officials from both Cathedral and Lincoln condemned the act as racist and unacceptable. But sometimes, the official response is not the one that resonates, and that seems to be the case here, as the real buzz on social media surrounds the clapback shirt created by an unknown but enterprising Lincoln High student. The sales page for the shirt, available on makeatee.com, includes the following text: “It’s true that Lincoln High has been in the headlines for run-ins with law enforcement, most notably, the 2016 lunchtime brawl that sent a school police officer and several students to the hospital. It’s also true that the Catholic Church has been in the headlines for its run-ins with law enforcement, most notably, the decades during which it conducted and then covered up the rape of countless little boys, which sent a whole bunch of people to jail. Lookin’ good, Cathedral Catholic!”
