KU, as racist as you think
« on: April 18, 2010, 01:53:12 PM »
JFC, Lawrence is like Johannesburg, SA.

[“When I look back on my career, there is a hole,” Mills says. “And that hole is while I was here."
/b]

[“I experienced more culture shock coming to KU than any of the 96 different countries I’ve visited,” Mills says

/b]

“I broke” is how Mills describes what happened to him then and many other times on his journey to Olympic glory. Mills also broke when fraternities at Kansas wouldn’t let him join. He remembers frat boys calling him “chief.” But Mills

Why do you think Wilt hopped into that Booster bought Oldsmobile Super 88 and headed to the 18th and Vine district in KCMO as early and often as he could??

You mean to tell me there was a lot of racial tension back in the 50's and 60's?  You don't say!  Way to completely butcher the quote as well, Limestone.

I guess the whole Civil Rights Movement of the 1960's occurred in an alternate universe.

The thing Ben fails to understand is the ease at which stories like these are found in regards to Larry and KU.  Where are the similar accusations regarding Manhattan and Kansas State. 

Food for thought next time you get all high and mighty and call MU "slavers" or tout a John Brown mural at a ballgame. 
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

I'm sure Ben and his slaves are currently looking for past quotes of racism at KSU...
Sometimes I think of the Book of Job and how God likes to really eff with people.

Earl Woods wasn't exactly eager to accept the accolades from all the white folk back in his little home town on the range after his son got to be a good golfer.

Just sayin'   :cry:

Excellent point.  Earl was eternally greatful to KSU and Manhattan for making him the first african-american baseball player in conference history.

Just unbelievable how KSU has been out in front of integration for so long.

KU fans on twitter had Mike's name in their mouth so I went looking for info and found this article. I don't remember this racist ass crap from back in the day, but holy hell is it racist, I can't believe BR put this on their site and still has it on there today.

KEVIN MILLER
JANUARY 29, 2008
In preparing for this week's game, as a writer and an excited fan, I've been watching the sports news very often and checking every website I can, whether it be ESPN, Fox Sports, or Sports Illustrated. Some of the things that the players and head coaches over at Kansas State have said have got me a bit on edge.

I have never been, and won't ever be, a fan of the "superstar freshman" one and done season. I think it gives players a big head to let them get into college for a year and stomp through with bunches of points, especially those players who are gifted as say, Michael Beasley or Kevin Durant. But many forget that there is a subtle difference between Durant and Beasley.

Here's how i take the superstar freshman's attitude of guaranteed victory.

"I'm saying we'll beat them," said Bill Walker

"We're going to beat Kansas at home," added Michael Beasley. "We're going to beat them at their house. We're going to beat them in Africa. Wherever we play, we're going to beat them."

I don't know about you, but this is not a showing of class or team commitment. I realize that these two young men are incredible basketball players, but just because they have a gift does not mean they should be running their mouths about wins against the second ranked team in the nation, even if they didn't know KU would be where they are now a few months back when the predictions were made.

You simply cannot say things like that. It only adds to the stigma given to African American sports players. We all know it, and I have seen it personally in my sporting career. Granted it hasn't been a very long one, but saying things like this is bringing a bad name to yourself.

You're increasing stigma's placed on young African American players as being "occasionally big headed or full of themselves." I may be taking this out of hand, but this is how I feel about a young "superstar" who will be off to the NBA in a year with no regard for his program and only focused on making all the money he can.

It is sad that this happens so many times; a young player goes out for the draft, gets drafted by a bad team, and gets paid millions of dollars. I just hope these young men get what is coming to them, and the Jayhawks deliver a staggering blow with team defense and precise offensive execution. Maybe then these guys will learn to keep their mouths closed until the game is over.

With all that said, and a bit of bias added, I believe team play beats two superstar players in a battle of who plays better, consistent defense.

KU 87-74

Tuttle said that the period from the 1890s to the 1920s was a period of increased racism across the country with things like the rise of the Klu Klux Klan.

In fact, the university had a sanctioned club called the “Ku Ku Klan,” which would “perform” in klan sheets and hoods on campus.

“They handed out the programs at the football games and marched down the field at halftime,” Tuttle said. “The chancellor, Phog Allen, and the dean of men all thought it was a wonderful idea.”

There really isn't a level that KU or its fans will not stoop too. Gross.
