On the list of Poor Internets Decisions By High-Profile College Athletes, we have to say, starting up a Facebook group devoted to “White Power” as a “joke” has to be rather high up there.
The racist Facebook group was created by a USC football player and showed a graphic of a black baby in handcuffs. Junior linebacker Clay Matthews created the group, “White Nation,” which featured a graphic with the caption, “arrest black babies before they become criminals.” Teammates David Buehler, Brian Cushing, Dan Deckas and Dallas Sartz joined the group.
“This group is not for the faint of heart,” read the group’s description. “All members are athletes of Caucasion (sic) descent. DISCLAIMER: In no way are the following memebers (sic) intolerant of others, we are just doing our duty of protecting the Arian (sic) brotherhood.”
You know, if they’re gonna protect their heritage, the least they could do is spell it correctly. This should do wonders for USC’s recruiting, by the way.
