Tell the NCAA: "I don't want to be A N.I.G.G.E.R!"

A N.I.G.G.E.R: "Another Naive Individual Glorifying Greed and Encouraging Racism" (Courtesy of Rapper BIG KRIT)

Yesterday, while I was tweeting, I noticed that there was a HBO special that would talk about "PAY FOR PLAY". Former Auburn players would admit in this special that they were paid money from various boosters. SURPRISING?? UMMM NOPE!

Considering what we have dealt with recently the Tattoo-Gate scandal at Ohio State, S-Cam Newton & his father (Auburn), & the Fab Five (Michigan) documentary that aired and mentioned players receiving monetary gifts from a booster. When will this all end?? I think it is time for the NCAA, as a WHOLE (all SPORTS), to seriously consider paying the student-athletes a percentage of the revenue that they help generate for their schools.

A lot of our young black student-athletes are struggling while in school playing and making a name for themselves in their respective sports. I do not support telling our young people that you should be taking money under the table. Give the student-athletes a stipend and pay them. Stop saying that this will make them PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES when they are already SEMI-PRO. The sad thing about majority of the "BLUE CHIP" stories that are revealed involve BLACK student-athletes. We need to educate our community on the people that leech after them while in high school knowing that they will go some where and play at a big university.

Once they turn pro people will have their "FAIRLEY HANDS" sticking out waiting on their reimbursements plus interest. Don't think so... Check out the Marcus Dupree ESPN 30 for 30 documentary... See what "FAIRLEY HANDS" did to him. As a parent and a lover of college sports, I just want to see a change and with the NCAA policing EVERY other school I do not think it is fair when I am almost 90% sure that ALL COLLEGES & UNIVERSITIES are paying players. It may be done in the dark, but what's done in the dark will come to LIGHT...

  1. Firstly, You are a moron...seriously
    Secondly rap/hip hop isnt music a lifestyle or a culture and ebonics is NOT a language so your article FAILS within the first 10 words and ahs NO credibility.

    As a former Blue chip athlete..let me impart some reality to you We get paid in EVERY sport from football to fencing and NO revenue earners should NOt be paid you are getting 100,000 dollar education and a VAST majority of these people CANT read or write or do basic math on a third grade level... Then you bitch when they get busted doing negro like activities.. Call it racism call it whatever you want but when it ALWAYS on certain socioeconomic demographic its a behavior pattern not a stereotype.. The university I went to gave me 100k because i ran a mile in 4 minutes in high school and was ALL American in 4 sports and yup I took it and yup I graduated magna cum laude and got a PhD and no Darius got a 7 on his SAT and ran a 4.3 40 and got paid and never blossomed and didnt graduate and got arrested for trying ot knock off a liquor store Its NEGRO LIKE activity
