Dabo Swinney: Clemson coach’s statement on George Floyd misses mark

65 0

Dabo Swinney spoke Monday, and it really wasn’t worth the wait. That shouldn’t surprise anyone.

Many of his college football and basketball coaching brethren released statements over the course of what was a terrible weekend in America, which followed a terrible week, which continued a terrible cycle of police brutality against Black people. This time, the kettle of seething anger boiled over—not just in Minneapolis, scene of the killing of George Floyd, but everywhere. From sea to shining sea, the United States was a rolling succession of protests and violent flash points.

The force of these events jarred the eternally cautious collegiate coaching community out of stasis mode and into statement mode. Some of them were eloquent and forceful. Some were trite. Some words seemed to come less from the heart than from a recruiter’s cynical sense of which way the wind is blowing in the Black community.
