This morning, as i do most mornings, i check the collegian to see whats going on back at my alma mater. This morning i look in there and its nothing but Penn State's a racist, and they throw bags of pee on everyone who walks on campus from another school....
Now Believe what you want, but i don't think its all THAT bad...
Supposedly at the Michigan game, a black male (who was a michigan fan) and a white female were sitting together at the game and it doesn't matter who started it, but the white female was called a N____ Lover. Ok... that went to far by that fan, i totally agree. First thing she should have done, was walk down the isle, tell the state trooper that this person is harrassing me and calling me these names, and they would have been arrested or cited for harrassement or provoking speeches and gestures. It is ILLEGAL to do what those people were doing... I totally agree with that was the wrong thing for this penn state fan to do. What i also feel ashamed about is the people around them didn't have them removed. if i was out of line... my friends would tell me to basically shape up or ship out... obviously this wasn't done.
Now what Penn state is doing, is obviously apologizing to them about their trip to state college and trying to smooth things over, which they should. But what can Penn State really do? They can't tell people, before you go to a game you have to take a class on how you should treat people of other races. They can't have people check a box, are you a racisit or not. There's really no way to mitigate this.
I really blame this on this persons upbringing and probably the amount of alcohol they consumed being that it was an 8pm kick off. I won't say their from philly, or pittsburgh or wherever so they must be an a-hole, but common. this isn't something that someone just goes out and says once as an oops.
So in the end. to all fans, we're sorry for those asshole fans that PSU has. We'll try to do our best to correct them, but there's always going to be one or two. Even when i was at alabama. People were so nice it was sick, but i had one or two people come up to me and say something nasty. (though i agree this was far worse of a situation than that). anyways... link is below if anyone hasn't read the article.
This is a link to the Tweet an ohio fan sent regarding how bad our students are. (supposedly)
