BYU finds no evidence of racial slur at Duke volleyball game – IOTW Report

BYU finds no evidence of racial slur at Duke volleyball game


Last week, Duke volleyball player Rachel Richardson claimed she was called a racial slur during a game with Brigham Young University (BYU), on August 26. A new comprehensive report from BYU says there is zero evidence that a racial slur was uttered.

Outkick reported on the story’s update and site founder Clay Travis said, “After an exhaustive investigation, BYU announces they have found zero evidence of any racial slur & they apologized to the fan who was kicked out, saying he did nothing wrong. This was Jussie Smollett on a volleyball court. Duke should be ashamed.” more

  1. I think she conjured a micro-aggression. Her team was losing big-time in front of a large, loud audience that taunted her and her teammates, as exuberant fans are wont to do, so perhaps they needed to be punished. If you aren’t good enough to win, you whine. Maybe she thought her accusations of racism would cause the crowd to be silenced, to give her team an edge? Maybe her coach told her to do it?

    Most female collegiate athletes are not accustomed to large boisterous crowds. Duke Women’s Volleyball had 392 fans at their most recent home game against Mich St. She must have been terrified at BYU with a record 5,507 screaming fans in attendance. Especially intimidating would have been the not exclusively white contingent from the BYU men’s basketball team on the front row (Hmmm, if the n-word was shouted, you think maybe they would have reacted?).

    She or one of her teammates will let slip a confession, eventually. The damage has been done. ESPN and the others are heavily invested now in perpetuating the fraud. Just like Trump’s “fine people”.

    That said, BYU’s initial reaction to the whole thing was abysmal. You cannot do anything right with race-baiters. Cowering appeasement is just blood in the water. It is understandable, given the world we find ourselves in, but I expected more from the place I was suspended from … twice (like a moth to a flame).

  2. “If you can’t stand the heat; get outta the kitchen.”

    I can’t understand these thin-skinned, sissy wannabees. Regardless of the nature of the taunts, isn’t that part of the game?
    If she’s that easily offended she should climb into the closet, cover herself with clothes, and suck a thumb.
    Babies shouldn’t play with adults.

  3. in a perfect world, she would lose her scholarship and be expelled from college. And the Democrats should ask Pamplin to withdraw from the election. btw, how many white candidates would survive such tweets? Nada. It’s good to be black

  4. I agree with you ACParker. I’m also a BYU alum (non-suspended variety). I was very disappointed that the school immediately instituted a ‘lifetime ban’ (later rescinded) on the fan that Rachel Richardson accused of calling her names. It reminded me of how Nick Sandman’s Catholic Dioceses immediately condemned him for taunting the ‘native American elder’, which we later found out he did not do. Innocent until proven guilty? Not so much.

  5. The same second I heard this story I knew it was FAKE as FAKE can be.

    I confirmed my knowledge by reading the twitter feed this came on. The mom’s twitter handle was, “[so and so] for JUDGE of [so and so].” Publicity stunt? Check

    Then there were THOUSANDS of moron twitter users with flags and emojis in their handles who were more irate than the mom was. Unfounded outrage from the mob who were ITCHING to find any racist attack? Check

    Where was ONE person in the crowd, besides the poor kid that was probably forced to go along with her mom, to corroborate the story? NONE. Check

    The mom’s story itself said the COPS were involved, but they did NOTHING other than stand by the bench? Check

    5000 people at the game, no video, no one stopped the supposed racist screaming? Check

    AMERICA IS NOT RACIST. NOT EVEN A LITTLE BIT. Prove me wrong. Democrats love to say This and That other country do This and That and we are the only country that doesn’t. Well I got news for you moron democrats, your average country is a million percent more racist than America, is that a dog whistle for you wanting us to be racist just like everyone else? You sure as shit want us to be like everyone else in every other regard. You sure do jump at every goddamn false opportunity of racism and spew outrage over even the most UNBELIEVABLE story. You just can’t wait to see it.

  6. Here’s the question. If it had been true, and a BYU fan had been guilty and proven guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt, what would the punishment have been? Banned from games, obviously, but it would have gone much further. Kicked out of school? Banned for life? Prosecuted for a hate crime?
    The only way to stop the fake hate crimes is to charge the faker with the same thing, and give them the same sentence that the perp would have gotten.
    The leftist from Duke should be expelled from school, banned for life from any sport, and be charged with a hate crime and sentenced accordingly.
    Of course in the real world, she’ll get a gig with ESPN.

  7. When this was first announced, I went on YT to see if anyone had video on this…you know with just about every “newsworthy” incident these days there is someone who manages to get video of an occurrence. Sure enough, I couldn’t find anything. I knew it sounded fishy from the get go.

  8. The Africans and their enablers will do this crap for as long as they can get away with it! Time to tell them enough is enough!

  9. Then:

    “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me”.


  10. “AMERICA IS NOT RACIST. NOT EVEN A LITTLE BIT.” HAHAHA That’s rich. Maybe you meant to write that WHITE America is not racist? Well buddy, maybe it’s time we joined our African bros in the racism game because we’re in a war that hardly no one on the white side is admitting.

    Here’s some stats to chew on
    Blacks are 13% of the population, but commit 43 to 53 percent of the murders (due to year to year variation) For example, in 2018, 43% of homicides were committed by blacks.

    Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.

    When a black person is the perpetrator, forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic.

    When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.

    Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.

    And it’s getting worse. MUCH worse

  11. Reminds me of the March 2019 Jazz vs OK Thunder (Wet Fart?) Russell Westbrook “racial” incident. Westbrook sez a Jazz fan was saying mean nasty racist thangs to him during a game, so he (Westbrook) bitched & moaned & got the fan a lifetime ban from Vivent Arena.
    The Jazz fan fought back and (IIRC) got the ban lifted because it basically came down to a “he said, she said” with no proof or evidence on Westbrook’s part (and of course, I can’t find THAT story anywhere).
    Yeah, I don’t recall ANY “racist” incidents in the last 10-15-20 years that were real and/or caused by whitey. (to include, but not limited to; ropes, nooses, swastikas, KKK, “blacks only” signs, etc)

  12. Here\’s a charming fact I just read about.

    Out of fear that others will start to wake the fuck up about the war on whites, the FBI has ceased to report on the racial distributions pertinent to felony crimes.

    Gee wonder why?

    My answer.
    On average, Blacks either won’t or can’t form successful societies. No? Name one and Wakanda doesn\’t count.

    “Yeah, I don’t recall ANY “racist” incidents in the last 10-15-20 years that were real and/or caused by whitey.”

    …but a few were probably caused by FBI agents…

  14. If hate crimes are so common, how come they have to keep making them up?™
    Wish I had a dollar for every time I have used that since I coined it.

  15. Oh, there was definitely a hate crime committed, but it wasn’t against the Duke player.

    What, you think she just randomly chose to do this at BYU?

  16. “…we would not tolerate any conduct that would make a student-athlete feel unsafe.”

    There you go; “words are violence”. SMH
