Well... if you just want to look at last year... look at what happened with Angel Reese a Black basketball player for LSU... who was accused of taunting Caitlin Clark, a White player for Iowa.... What was Reese doing? The same darned thing that Clark had been doing to other players on other teams in the entire tournament. When Clark was doing it... well.... she's just a tough competitor.... When Reese did it, well she was a thug.Is race the only factor when you compare behavior from 60 years ago with behavior from last year? In the 1960s kids were hit by parents - would that be allowed today? Something can have a racial element without being 100% about race.
But okay... let's go back to when Bobby Knight was a coach.... it wasn't 60 years ago, Knight retired in 2008, 15 years ago.... but does anyone really believe that if a Black coach behaved the way Knight did, when he was coaching.... he would not have been fired.
There is a double standard... all you have to do is look for it.
