MORE THAN ONE WAY TO PROTEST: OSU Players Threaten Not To Play After Coach BOLDLY Posted Himself In Right Wing Media Tee + Coach Apologizes, Makes Amends With Players

​ ​ ​ ​

OSU players aren’t tolerating any racism or right wing hate spewing, especially not from their head coach Mike Gundy. The players threatened to NOT play after a picture of their coach was posted online wearing a pro-Trump OAN t-shirt. Now, the coach is singing a different tune.

We stan young, black and WOKE college students. Even moreso that they’re college football players using their power to shake the table since they're smart enough to know the power they hold.

Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy sparked controversy when a picture of him wearing an OAN t-shirt while fishing at Lake Texoma was posted on social media.

OAN stands for One America News Network, which is a right-wing conspiracy news network - which airs on AWE cable network and elsewere - that is heavily and unapologetically in favor with America’s sitting president, founded by Robert Herring, Sr. And apparently, this isn’t the first time he supported the network that promotes & praises Trump multiple times a day while dragging up conspiracy theories and negative news about any Democrat, especially people of color.

The t-shirt made several black OSU players feel a way, so they decided to do something about it.  Thankfully, they're aware enough of off-hand news networks to know they need to speak up about this one in particular.

OSU stars Chuba Hubbard (the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year in 2019 and a 2020 Heisman candidate) and Amen Ogbongbemiga were outraged by their coach’s actions and threatened to NOT play “until things changed.”

”I will not stand for this.. This is completely insensitive to everything going on in society, and it’s unacceptable. I will not be doing anything with Oklahoma State until things CHANGE,” Chuba tweeted.

”I stand with him!,” Amen responded to his tweet.

If you don't know college football, understand this was the equivalent of throwing down the gauntlet.  Chuba is one of their star players, set to indeed enter the NFL draft in about a year.  So this threat came with plenty to lose.

OSU lineman Tevin Jenkins spoke out to show he’s standing in solidarity with them as well:

Coach Mike Gundy met with some of his players “and realized it’s a very sensitive issue with what’s going on in today’s society.” He said he was looking forward to “making some changes” in a video with Chuba.

Many other players and students chimed in on Twitter, and it seemed there were MUCH deeper issues with his charscter than just this shirt, which seemed to be the straw that broke the camel's back.  Another player brought up a time Gundy told teammates that he was going to run them back to the ghett they came from.

Coach Gundy released an apology video of his own a day after Chuba’s tweet:

Before Coach Gundy posted his apology, Chuba posted some tweets to double down on calling out Gundy and said that he needed to hold him accountable. He called him out amid nationwide protests against police brutality, racism and social injustice.

”By voicing our opinion we are happy to have came to a conclusion and opened a gateway to create some serious CHANGE around Oklahoma State. My teammates and I have all agreed we will go ahead and resume all workouts and activities. We’re all in this together,” Amen tweeted.

Loves it. THIS is surely another way of protesting to have your voice heard.

After Coach Gundy posted his apology, which, again, is a HUGE deal from a Big 12 coach, OSU alum and former basketball standout Doug Gottlieb released the players “demands” for change on Twitter. However, the demands he tweeted were the farthest from the truth. Several OSU players called him out for posting these demands that perpetuate a stereotype attached to black men.

Come on kings! Glad they checked him for this!

In other news...

We're going to need the Black Lives Matter protesters to STOP fetishizing over the sexuality of black men and black penis.  Because we ALL know....nevermind.

And it's from both sides. White women are making posters expressing their love for "black d*ck" while black men are carrying around posters that ask why a white woman's family can't accept them when they love the "black d*ck."

"Your daughters love every inch of us, so why can't you?," is a question written on a black man's poster during a protest. Just, no. This ain't it, y'all.

 

 

 

 

 

The truth is, fetishizing Black men’s genitalia is dehumanizing and it plays into historical symbolism of the dehuminzation, emasculation & castration that happened during lynchings as black men were often only valued and objectified for their bodies and what they could do for white men's land and white women's bodies.

If you didn't know, racial fetishism is a thing. It means a person sexually fetishizes another person or culture belonging to a specific race or ethnic and it's very prevalent these days. While support is always appreciated, the fetishizing of black men isn't it.
