Hanna-Strong-2

Syracuse University Hanna Strong, a senior soccer player, has been suspended after being caught on video using the “n” word and calling someone a f*ggot.

Coach Phil Wheddon has suspended the Monson, Mass., native from the team in light of the allegations. Although the video is not time-stamped,  Strong is seen confronting a black male with his hands up.

“If you touch me, it will be over,” Strong spouts before turning to the person holding the camera. “Are you recording this? You f—-t ass n—-r. It’s bullshit.”

Although a university patrol vehicle can be seen in the video, no one knows what prompted the confrontation.

Daryl Gross, Syracuse’s director of athletics, released a statement in regards to Strong and the video:

“This type of intolerant and hurtful language, focused on both race and sexual orientation, is not part of the culture we seek to foster among our student-athletes and it has no place at Syracuse University,” Gross wrote. “Syracuse Athletics, as a strong and diverse part of this University community, has zero tolerance for these actions.”

    It’s sad to see so many of those taking up for her are other young Black men.

      Not sad, typical. Which is why i don’t waste my precious time protesting for BM. Leave them to their own devices. Let the white/asian/latina women protest for them.

      Young black men supporting racist white women is far from typical. When we suggest the behavior of a very small minority of black people is representative of the entire group, we are mimicking what racist whites do to us EVERY DAY.

      We learned well.

      We can’t call everything a man these days.

      Black men are always caping for white women. It’s nothing new.

    Where are all these Black men y’all speak of? Cuz I certainly haven’t seen it.

  • joe

    One thing I’ve noticed online is that whenever racist whites attack us, many of us will respond by attacking each other.

    The colonized mind is real.

    Are dudes defending her on Twitter or Facebook? All sorts of idiots post these days. To be blunt, she is not even good looking, usually brothers who defend this sort of woman are thinking with the little head. I don’t even see where she has that going or her.
