Elder student section celebrates a 3-pointer.

This has been a week of apology and reflection at Elder High School. When the West Side school played St. Xavier on February 2, Elder's student cheering section hurled racist chants at two players on the opposing team and called St. X fans by a homophobic slur.

Joining us to discuss the incident during Elder's basketball game and the response are Elder High School Principal Kurt Ruffing; Cincinnati Enquirer columnist and Editorial Board member Byron McCauley; Cincinnati Public School Board member Mike Moroski; and Jewish Community Relations Council Director Jackie Congedo.
