Cape Coral, Florida – A discriminatory drinking game appears to be sweeping through high schools in Florida, Fox4 News reports. The version of beer pong at the Cape Coral High School offers ‘Jews vs Nazis’ trades in the triangles for a swastika and the Star of David.
More than 1600 people retweeted a post by @HSConfessional with a picture of the game that claims it’s played at Cape Coral High School parties. Since the post last month, several users have reportedly put it to the test.
“As a rabbi, I like to look at the world as a beautiful place. So, my first assumption is let’s assume it’s just children that are immature with no ill intent, not trying to be malice,” Rabbi Yitzchok Minkowicz of the Chabad Lubavitch of Southwest Florida told Fox4.
“This is a wake up call,” said Rabbi Minkowicz. “We are not doing enough of a job educating people to be nicer, kinder, more polite.”
Rabbi Minkowicz noted there’s a disconnect between this generation and those born closer to the Holocaust. “Good is more powerful than evil and if we continue to make this world a good and better place, good will rise to the top,” he said.
In an email, the Lee County School District spokeswoman says monitoring social media at this big of a scale is impossible. “Parental monitoring of social media needs to continue especially and through the high school years. Of course, any use of a school name in a defamatory manner is disappointing.”
