Massachusetts High School Cancels Football Games After Racial Slur Spraypainted on Player’s Home

Lateef Mungin, CNN, November 20, 2013

A Massachusetts high school football team canceled the rest of its season after someone scrawled a racial epithet on the home of one of its players.

“Knights don’t need [the n-word],” the slur read.

The Blue Knights are the football team at Lunenburg High School, a school 55 miles northwest of Boston.

The epithet was spray painted in large blue letters on the foundation of the ranch-style home where the team’s 13-year-old fullback lives.

The boy’s mother is white; his father black, the station said.

The boy told the station he’s been dealing with other harassing incidents in recent weeks. His cleats were doused in water; the tire on his bicycle was slashed, he said.

“We wish to express our outrage and sorrow over the hateful and vile acts against one of our own,” the Lunenburg School Committee said in a press release.

“We assure you and our entire community that we will continue to work to ensure that hate has no place in our schools.”

School officials canceled last Friday’s game, and said they will forfeit the remaining two games–including the traditional Thanksgiving Day game.

“It would be highly inappropriate to play the remaining games while there is an ongoing investigation,” the committee said.

    What does it smell like to you, experienced Amren reader?

      Maybe a black did this as a set-up?

      Hey Rabbi, whatchya doin’?

        Do you think the hoaxers managed to write the slur right side up this time?

    I live here in the people’s republic of Massachusetts, and all I have to say is that I am more than willing to invite some of the Lunenburg Blue Devils to the next Amren conference!

  • Why cancel the rest of the season for the team that he is on? Is there any evidence that someone on his team is doing this?

    • rowingfool

      Agree. Where’s the evidence?

      Cancel the games and punish the players who have worked hard all season–now that makes no sense at all.

      • Sick of it

        Sure it does. Diversity means nothing but punishment for white people. We get NO benefit from it.

      • Erasmus

        Sounds as if someone on the Lunenberg School Committee is bucking for a faculty position at Oberlin, the college of dweebs, pussies and lifelong bed-wetters.

  • How long will it take for him to be offered a full skolaship from some prestigious university upon graduation, just for being a mulatto?

  • Triarius

    Inappropriate to play games while there is an investigation going on? Tell that to Kobe.

    This is why I despise “hate speech”. Aside from being American and finding it a threat to liberty, people can just move the goal posts at any time to define what it is and make up whatever punishment they desire, since there is no history of it.

  • Pro_Whitey

    OMG, they used the n-word! Like, this is so much worse than when the mulatto son of Obama stabbed a beloved math teacher to death a few weeks ago! So much worse, there’s no comparison! (yeah, that’s sarcasm)

    • rowingfool

      It’s appalling. To attribute magical properties to a slang word and let then murders go by with a sigh and a “Oh well, these things happen.”

      • So CAL Snowman

        It’s the new normal. Racism is officially worse than murder in the Former United States.

  • MekongDelta69

    Dollars to donuts, this is just another hoax

  • bigone4u

    Foolish adults running the show in Massachusetts, the state that gave us Barney Frank.

    • IstvanIN

      How did anyone mention to get anywhere near him without a spit guard?

  • libertarian1234

    I don’t believe a word of it.
    More likely than not it is just another hoax.

  • Spartacus

    A hoax. Though I wish it wasn’t, as it would at least show more White kids are coming to their senses l

    • So CAL Snowman

      Hey Spartacus, sorry about Romania failing to qualify for the WC. It’s ridiculous that trash like Mexico and Algeria get to go but Sweden has to sit out.

      • Spartacus

        Yeah, I drank a lot yesterday… It’s our current coach’s fault, he’s an idiot.

        • So CAL Snowman

          European qualifying is brutal, but hey at least your team isn’t a multicultural barf bag. Thankfully Captain America is a White guy from Texas (Clint Dempsey).

          • Spartacus

            Well, we have a couple of Gypsies, some slavs and a Hungarian, but other than that it’s pretty Romanian.

      • M.

        Well, they take one team from each group. And the groups are regionally close. So if, say, Sweden didn’t make it, then it was another European country from that group that made it.

        If it wasn’t Algeria, it would’ve been another African or Arab country.

  • Lord_Steven_Regal

    One of my Facebook friends lives in the town this happened. He posted a picture of the candle light vigil that residents held to combat racism. The vigil was well attended and almost 100% white.

    That’s fine if the town residents want to renounce these actions. What kills me, though, is that I can guarantee that if it was “honky” or “cracker” spray painted on a white person’s house these white people would not hold a candle light vigil to renounce the racism. And if there was such a gathering, many of these white people would suggest the white people in attendance were overly concerned about race or are white racists.

    It’s just like when we see no anti-racism vigils when whites are killed by blacks. Far too many white people care more about black feelings than whites being killed. Or, at the very least, they want to give the appearance of being (in their mind) a noble and progressive anti-racist.

    Given how many of these turn out to be hoaxes perpetrated by the supposed ‘victims’ themselves, it’s irresponsible for administrators and media to assume it’s legitimate without evidence. When it first occurs they’ll shout it from the roof tops. If it turns out to be yet another attempt to smear whites they’ll publish a retraction at the bottom of the back page.

    • MBlanc46

      I do hope that if that turns out to be the case, it will get as much publicity as this is getting.

    • SFLBIB

      “…it’s irresponsible for administrators and media to assume it’s legitimate without evidence.”

      That’s not the way liberals think. Racism is a given. You [the rhetorical “you”] have to prove otherwise.

  • MBlanc46

    Talk about over-reacting.

    • Even in the very remote possibility that this wasn’t a hoax, that mulatto kid doesn’t get to play football now, either, in which case the school officials are also punishing the victim. Even from the standpoint of Political Correctness in the current crop of public sector workers, that’s insane.

    • bigone4u

      You think that’s bad, canceling two football games. The FBI is investigating! The FBI! And you should see the comments on the Daily Mail about this story. They are mostly anti-white, expressing horror at how terrible racists are.

      • Of course the FBI is investigating! FBI director James Comey works for negro Attorney General Eric Holder, who in turn works for negro President Oogabooga. I’m sure Comey has bank robbers and the like he’d rather catch, but since he works for groids, there’s no way he has much choice.

      • MBlanc46

        Involving the FBI isn’t merely overreacting, it’s social lunacy.

  • LIBERTYSINCURSION

    Never watched “Fast times at Ridgemont High” Mr. Campbell. In fact I’m not even sure I know just what that film is. But my mind is jumping to the 80’s flick that starred the Ultra-Liberal, Anti-Racist, Anti-Homophobic hypocritical actor and Hollywood tool Shawn Penn. Who some how, while busy lecturing America on how we need to raise our children to be “tolerant” of others. Managed to raise a son who’s both racist, and homophobic under his own roof. Go figure, eh? Anyway,,,, if you’ve got time to explain the scene and why it would’ve killed the film, I’ve got time to listen friend.

      In the movie the star (black) high school football player is given a brand new Z-28 from the college that recruited him. While he is out of town for a weekend visiting the school, his little brother and Spicoli (Sean Penn) take the car out and wind up totaling it. Rather than admit to what they did, they spray painted it with taunts to make it look like a rival football team from another high school trashed the car.

  • skedaddle1

    They’ll find out the little brat did it to his own house. I’m still at a loss for why the football season was cancelled but then educrat “reasoning” often leaves me at a loss.

  • Good. I say cancel all sports. All they do is advertise black male prowess celebrated by white cheerleaders.

    • You’re preaching to the choir here. Surely we whites have better things to do than watch a bunch of groids throw a ball around.

      • Especially since Whites throw the ball around more skillfully but don’t get played because they are White.

  • Joseph

    Even IF they discover that it was self-inflicted, they will make some statement like:
    “While we cannot condone what Mr. Jefferson did, we should take this opportunity to reflect on the very real racism and hateful events to which minorities are subject every day and try to let this help us as we work together toward a solution.”
    No matter what, whites will still be impugned over the event whether responsible or not and a correction or update will be buried at the back of the news somewhere.
    We can’t win in the media.

    • Let’s see if I remember these properly:

      “He was ‘confused’.”

      “It still ‘raises awareness’.”

      “He is sorry for the consternation he ‘inadvertently’ caused.”

      “Criminal charges would be an inappropriate overreaction.”

  • Puggg

    The team’s starting fullback is a 13-year old freshman?

    Either he’s really big and really good for his age, a year younger than the typical freshman, or it’s not much of a team, the school’s enrollment isn’t that big, and the team’s coaches don’t really have much of a choice.

  • Erasmus

    Hysteria is the byword in our highly feminized society. I hope the US ends sooner rather than later and that we can begin rebuilding before everyone forgets what destructive parasites these cultural Marxists have been.

  • But… but… but… doesn’t Hollywood always depict blacks as all-knowing tough guys who are constantly charging in to save everybody by… well… by just charging in?

    I’ve seen lots of movies, and many of them provide the impression that only white gentiles can be hypersensitive, emotionally-fragile sissies.

  • Reading the article for details, I’m going to say this was a hoax.

    The blue spray paint was applied to the *foundation* of the home. This is normally concrete blocks or poured ferroconcrete. When someone spray paints concrete, one just spray paints back over it, masking over anything else nearby to prevent overspray. Light grey automobile primer paint is a good match for concrete and also inexpensive. A “racist” who wanted to make that family unhappy would have spray-painted stone or brickwork, because this would have required sand-blasting to remove the paint.

  • They probably wet their beds each night even when nothing like this is going on.

  • MBlanc46

    If only it were so easy to devastate them.

  • OhWow

    The babying of blacks continues…and we wonder why they think everything is offensive. The liberals always tell them they SHOULD be offended by doing things like canceling entire seasons for some stupid spray paint. It’s a WORD.

  • Paleoconn

    To be exposed as a hate crime hoax in 10-9-8…
