Kansas State football plans boycott over George Floyd tweet
29 Juin, 2020, 12:22 | Auteur: Therese Cote
In a statement posted online, black student athletes from several sports said they they will not play in their respective seasons, unless the Kansas State establishes a policy of expelling students who "openly display racism" on social media.
A K-State student's tweets in reference to the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement has caused tension within the student body.
Athletics director Gene Taylor and football coach Chris Klieman both criticized McNeil's tweet and said they would not tolerate racial hate on campus.
As can be expected, these tweets did not sit well with many in the university community.
On June 3, University of Missouri athletes and coaches joined with police and other administrators in walking to the Boone County Courthouse and knelt in honor of Floyd, before 62 football players registered to vote.
The tweet posted Thursday by sophomore Jaden McNeil drew the ire of several football players, including two who said they wouldn't play for Kansas State unless McNeil is removed from the university.
"The university has yet to make a statement on how it will deal with the student who made the tweets, but in a statement made on behalf of President Richard Myers K-State said it plans to "[launch] an immediate review of the university's options". It is in blatant opposition to the values we hold close and aspire to as a university, such as diversity, inclusion, civility and respect.
The university may be limited in their ability to take action; in 2017 it adopted a version of the Chicago Statement on free-speech, earning itself a "green light" rating from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.
That tweet was met with anger from many with connections to K-State, including student-athletes who chose to use their platforms to condemn McNeil.
McNeil most likely has received more attention than most students due to his history of activism on and off campus.
Kansas State spokesman Jeff Morris said America First Students is now not registered on the campus.
McNeil's original tweet with a link to his statement has been deleted.
