We know the the kids today are all up on their myspace and facebook social networking buzzword blah blah blah but we gotta think that athletic directors must hate those things. It’s fun for the athletes but has only caused trouble for the athletic departments and their PR staff.
The latest in Bad Idea Jeans is a facebook group created by five white USC football players called “White Nation”, which featured a graphic of a black baby in handcuffs. (“arrest black babies before they become criminals.”) The group was created by Clay Matthews and included teammates David Buehler, Brian Cushing, Dan Deckas and Dallas Sartz.
The players said that the group was created as an inside joke because a coach nicknamed them “White Nation”. Unlike the “oops, it was my wife’s phen-phen” excuse, we actually believe them. Still, we have to ask, are they fucking retarded?
Look, everyone jokes about race and most of them aren’t racist (much) but it’s still a bad idea to do that on a public forum when you’re a part of a high profile college football program. If you don’t want it on the internet and people to spread it around, don’t put it on the internet. The internet is an evil place, full of bloggers who have nothing better to do than to tell the world how stupid you are.
