They held up racist signs at a basketball game, so he went on TV and gave them a piece of his mind.

So let's review, shall we?

Dale Hansen is a sportscaster in Dallas, Texas.

And on Feb. 23, 2015, he was forced to give the kind of report he probably hoped never to have to give. A group of students at a local high school basketball game were photographed holding up signs to taunt the opposing team.

Here's what those signs looked like.

Hansen was disgusted but not surprised.

Particularly, he was disgusted at the students' parents, who claimed it was all "an accident."

It was obviously no accident.

Yet despite that, Hansen feels sorry for the kids who held up the hateful signs. And the reason he does is more than a little surprising. And probably difficult for him to admit.

He was one of those kids because his father taught him to be one of those kids.

Thankfully, he grew up. But too many others are in danger of never seeing the light. When the ostensible adults in a community perpetuate the same racist ideas their parents and grandparents held, it's the next generation that suffers the most.

You have to be taught to hate.

And it's on all of us to make sure that's not the lesson we're giving our kids, our students, and our young athletes. Starting now.

Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?

FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.

Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.

Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.

The first few months after having a newborn are seriously stressful. It's tough to get any sleep and your entire schedule revolves around the needs of the baby.

It's expensive, too! It seems like you're constantly shelling out $25 for a box of diapers and $40 for a can of formula.

So it's understandable that a Facebook user who goes by the name of Chris Blaze asked for a deal when buying a Samsung washer and dryer set of a guy named Dave he met online.
