The U.S. borders are still wide open, air travel from China and Italy has not been terminated, and little testing is being done. An NBA game and later the entire season was canceled after a possibly infected player was ordered not to attend the game. Luckily fans were told to leave the Corona free sports arena to prevent the player, that wasn’t there, from infecting the crowd while performing. Disney sports shortly thereafter launched wall to wall coverage praising the NBA’s leadership, urging the NCAA to follow the herd. By 9:00 AM eastern standard time the NCAA tournament will be cancelled and will fail to regain its popularity in subsequent seasons. World Wars did not stop collegiate athletics, but thanks to 24/7 digital news cycle and synthetic flu, the show will not go on. Years from now, Grandfathers will tell their grandchildren where they were on 3/11.
During the top of the 7th inning in Tuesday’s NCAA softball championship, the entire Oklahoma team held up the white supremacy symbol after their only black player tied the game with a homerun with 2 outs in the final inning. It is uncertain if the racist mostly white team was mocking their teammate who just tied the game or if this is how they display their white privilege every game . When is the NCAA going to stop endorsing and encouraging dangerous white supremacy that is destroying our diverse country? Events like this only further marginalize black students who are already harrassed, assaulted, and victimized daily by white culture on every college campus across this racist nation. The NCAA must strip Oklahoma of all their victories in the 2019 season, investigate the program, and put them on athletic probation until each racist player in that photo is expelled and the toxic white culture in Norman is eradicated for good.
