Acts of racism have become far too prevalent in the Trump era. After the president blamed “many sides” for the Charlottesville terrorist attack, video footage of vile racist acts began flooding the internet. Racists think it’s okay for them to express their beliefs publicly with Trump as their leader.
Kings Mill, Ohio just had to crack down on a youth league basketball team due to its players’ custom jerseys. The “Wet Dream Team” thought it’d be funny to print the names “Knee Grow” and “Coon” on the back of their jerseys.
When parents at the West Clermont Middle School noticed the jerseys during the game, they began snapping photos. The immediate question everyone is asking is how did the team’s coach allow for this to happen?
Tony Rue, the parent who first shared photos of the racist jerseys on Facebook, stated, “A Rec league or not, please explain how this is even remotely considered appropriate for a high school basketball game.”
A Rec league or not, please explain how this is even remotely considered appropriate for a high school basketball game. …
The enraged Rue went on to say, “By no means are we perfect parents or assume our teenage boys are innocent and don’t speak of things like this, but I could never imagine allowing my teenage son to represent his school and league in this manner, let alone representing our family with such filth.”
Once Cincinnati Recreational League officials saw the photos on social media, they took action by dismissing the team.
The coach dubiously responded, “We sincerely apologize to anyone that was offended by the jerseys.”
Parents are outraged over the fact that the team played for three weeks before the league took action to eject them.
