I do not feel responsible for the breakdown of the African American family. If the stats I hear are correct, 70% of black children born do not have a father figure to help raise them. If black parents don't make their children go to school every day, it's not the fault of whites.

As a young man in the 1960s, I worked one week with a youth program in the inner city of Oklahoma City. All the participants were black. All the adult leaders were white. It was in a community center and every day while white adults brought a camp program to black kids, I saw adult black men playing cards and pool across the hall. Not once did they lift a finger to assist or lead, nor to even offer up a "thank you." Specifics like that are not the fault of whites IMHO.
You made me think of a scene in a movie I saw from years ago (I think it was Spike Lee's, "Do the Right Thing"). The scene involved a Korean husband and wife who operated a fruit and vegetable stand in a predominately Black neighborhood. The couple's business was successful, but drew the ire of some older Black men watching them do business. One of them said something to the effect of, "It's a damn shame. We've been here 300 hundred years, yet they're three years off the boat and have a thriving business." I wanted to yell, "Hello!" at the screen. I was surprised that Spike put that scene in the movie, but it made a good point. We can complain. Or we can take responsibility for our own actions.
Well this is the typical response by white people who don't accept the reality of structural racism. You haven't asked the question "Why were all the adult leaders white?" You haven't looked at it from their perspective. You come in to their community for one week and you want them to thank you. Please. If you didn't show up they would thank you. And, if you were paid why did you get the money rather than local people? You haven't asked the question why black parents don't value education. Well, you haven't been turned down for a job because or your skin color regardless of education. Don't say there is equal opportunity. I mean it was only a few years ago where black athletes couldn't be QBs. And, now there are few black coaches.

Good post, Opensource. In regards to the coaches, I'm selfishly happy that KC hasn't lost Eric Bieniemy. But I feel sorry for him, because I think he deserves a HC job. Reid has said he's ready, and I trust his judgment. The only thing I can think of is that maybe it's because Reid likes to call plays during the game. Maybe he'll decide to stick around KC until Reid retires, and takes over.

Hmm ... I believe I stated KSU and KSU football had turned far left and some folks said I was full of sh*t! I won’t say I told you so because that wouldn’t be classy.

For you donors whom I warned were making your donations to a left wing operation ... you took the bait ... now here’s the switch.

For anyone who doesn’t know, the chief legal counsel basically runs the show and is a key player in ‘every’ significant decision. KSU will soon be left of Lawrence if it isn’t already.

Meyers has filled the ranks with left wing deans, who now have left wing dept heads and who are hiring left wing faculty. Some of us have been trying to sound the alarm for several years.

KSU’s undergrad enrollment will be under 18k this fall and I will predict right now that it will fall below 15k before the Meyers experiment is over. No one in conservative Kansas will want to attend a school full of left wing nuts that go after Christian groups.

One last thing ... this stuff with the tweeter is going to get expensive. Meyers has been after that kid for a while if you didn’t know. The kids student group is backed by Michelle Maulkin and some religious right wing groups. Meyers already got them booted off campus and the tweet looks like and opportunity for a knockout. However, I foresee some legal battles and some groups on the far right willing to step in and go toe to toe with King Richard and his left wingnuts.

Get ready for some fireworks.

So are the kids still threatening to boycott playing or has that been resolved?

They were never really boycotting, just whining. They are boycotting during the 14 day period they can’t workout because of the supposed virus outbreak. Lol.

I was under the impression that (at least early on) they would boycott all activities until certain demands (including expelling McNeil) were met. It seems more recently they have backed off a little bit on those demands (since McNeil's posts are protected speech), but still want changes made to school policy regarding posting on social media.

myers is clearly a left-winger which is odd for a vet, albeit a retired general. i just chuckled when i saw his legal appointment - shari f. crittendon. it would be interesting to hear myers and crittendon's views about the mission of this school. the appointment, however worthy, is another indication of why conservatives distrust universities.

however, i wouldn't paint with such a broach brush as to label the athletic department. i suspect klieman, taylor, and others there (in fact, i know) are as conservative as myself. they're dealing with a hand dealt by circumstances.
