ISU President Dietz declared ISU is a Social Justice University. https://blnnews.com/2020/06/02/dietz-social-justice-is-an-isu-priority/
Athletics Director Larry Lyons proclaimed he’s all in too: https://blnnews.com/2020/08/04/did-isus-larry-lyons-become-a-social-justice-warrior/
What neither understand is caving to progressives never ends. Hand them one victory they will want 5 more things. When they get those 10 more will be on the list.
Social Justice is nothing more than taking from some people and giving it to others who didn’t earn it. The pandering of Dietz and Lyons has lead to this from Twitter:
See the last 2 lines above. The black student athletes are boycotting something, they don’t say what. Playing? Are any playing now or are all sports shut down? As stated above, the demands will continue no matter what action is taken.
How many of these black athletes are on scholarship? How many appreciate it? If you read the thread on Twitter they think racism is systemic. Nobody mentions a black president was elected twice and not by black people. Systemic racism is a myth.
Why do the ISU athletes support the BLM Marxist corporation? Seminars actually reading the BLM website should be required.
Dietz, Lyons, and much of the staff in the athletics department are setting the stage for campus violence by pandering to those just jumping on the latest fad.
Can they put this jeanie back in the bottle? Doubtful.
