Hasty: Narrative Of Widespread Racism In Police Not True
Friday on The Chad Hasty Show, Hasty dove deep into the wide topics surrounding the controversial intertwining of politics, professional and university-level sports, and social issues, as well as the narrative, being pushed by many, that America is a racist nation.
Hasty talked about the recent announcement that the Texas Tech University football program cancelled practice on Friday, the stated reasons behind the cancellation, and explored the fallout of the action from differing angles.
I'm not denying that there's racial injustice in the world. I'm not denying there are bad cops. I'm just one of those weird people who think we need to figure out the facts before we start claiming that there's racial injustice in this case. That maybe we should hear the facts, maybe we should wait a day or two, and learn about things that happened in this scenario before we start looting and rioting, and saying that our mental health has been impacted because of this scenario.
Later in the discussion Hasty said,
The sports leagues and colleges, they've bought into the BLM stuff, they've bought into the 'systematic racism', they've bought into all of this stuff...that's basically saying America is racist, and black and brown people every single day are being beaten and killed in the streets due to systematic racism. That's not true, but that's where we are now.
