🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬. Angry? Yes. Disappointed? Yes. Surprised? Hell No. 
My college teammate and good friend @cjamieson88 showed me this letter and to my dismay, the ruling of this matter was all but shocking to be honest. I mean this isn’t the first time we’ve encountered this sort of thing and done nothing about it, right @uslacrosse? If you are reading this, I need you to tag someone and share this post. I’ll say it AGAIN: If you’re not correcting it (must be a different definition for Commissioner Sanderson 🤬), You’re allowing it! 
The soapbox talk from me is over, YOU are just as RESPONSIBLE for the CHANGE in this world as I am; my only question to you reading this is “Have you used your voice to eradicate this behavior? If not, What are you so afraid of? RACISM is as old as dirt, and I’m starting to give the side eye to a bunch of you who seem to be okay with it continuing. In closing, you wonder why minorities in lacrosse don’t TRUST this sport, this is a perfect example! A second offense and 1 less game? I could go in a while other direction with the inconsistencies I see, but I won’t. GET TAGGING!!” #RacismInLacrosse ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼✊🏻 #Repost @jovination23

    My son is 9 yrs old and unfortunately had to experience this. Because there aren't any consequences, it will continue. The refs condone it. They allow white teams and their parents to say despicable things to CHILDREN! When a complaint is filed, nothing is done...ever!

    Definitely appreciate you speaking out. Had similar issues when I did play. Part of the reason I stopped. Hopefully one day it will change and there is equal respect in the community.

    Love lacrosse, hate that it continues to be a "privelaged" sport.
