UGA Looking Into Slurs Used Towards Black QB By Fellow White Athlete

The one thing we know about the good ole state of Georgia is that it’s infamous for being one of the most racist states in the country since its inception in 1732. It was the last of the original Thirteen Colonies and is culturally aggressive in incarcerating people of color.

 A 2016 list of the Top Ten Most Racist states in America, placed Georgia at  No.7.  While race relations in the South have improved since the days of lynching people and burning churches —  and some areas are more integrated —  the racist culture embedded in the states government, history and interaction between whites and blacks rears its ugly head from time to time. 

Back in January, Hot 97 and ESPN sports radio personality Peter Rosenberg billed the College Football Championship between Georgia and Alabama as a battle for “most racist state.”

In the past year, there has been several instances of white athletes getting into trouble after racist, homophobic and offensive Tweets they made while in high school were exposed. So its not surprising that the University of Georgia is conducting an investigation into allegations of “racially derogatory comments” reportedly made towards freshman quarterback Justin Fields by a baseball player with the program during Saturday’s 38-12 win against Tennessee.

UGA is investigating claims that baseball player Adam Sasser used racial slurs towards QB Justin Fields during Saturday’s game vs #Tennessee https://t.co/aMOFjqWlPA

(Just a side note: Tennessee was listed as the No. 4 most racist state, so when youre a black athlete in the South you get crap from the opposition and even your own collegiate family) 

“We are aware of a reported incident this weekend involving conduct by one of our student-athletes. While we are limited in what we can say about the incident at this time, I want to reemphasize that we do not condone discriminatory behavior,” Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity said in a prepared statement sent to media members on Monday. “The University’s Equal Opportunity Office thoroughly reviews all reported violations of our Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy to ensure an appropriate response.”

All of the details are not in but UGASports.com, an affiliate of Rivals, is reporting that the racially derogatory comments are alleged to have been made by Adam Sasser, an all-conference second baseman on the Bulldogs’ baseball team. Georgia’s response to UGASports.com’s inquiry into the matter included an email statement from baseball coach Scott Stricklin. 

“I expect every member of our team to behave at all times in a way that upholds the highest standards and values of the University of Georgia, and it is disappointing when that doesn’t happen,” Stricklin said. “While I cannot comment on this matter, we cooperate fully in any investigation involving an alleged violation of University policies.”

Sasser, son of Jon and Rachel Sasser, who cant possibly be happy with their sons alleged bigotry, is an accomplished player with MLB dreams. 

Hes a member of the 2018 All-SEC Second Team and Sasser is Georgias leading returning hitter after batting .317 with 10 home runs and 44 RBI, helping to lead the Bulldogs to a host spot in the 2018 NCAA Athens Regional.

The “white male’s” name is Adam Sasser. He’s a freshman first baseman for Georgia’s baseball team. Retweet this. Spread his name around.

Sasser was also Georgias top batter in SEC play with a .346 average, with six home runs, 26 RBI in 30 Starts. In one of those games, Sasser tied a school record with three home runs as part of a four-hit, six-RBI performance to lift Georgia past Missouri, 10-6.

For his career, Sassera graduate of Greenbrier Highowns a .273 average with 13 home runs and 60 RBI in 139 games, including 104 starts.

This accusation certainly doesnt help Sassers brand or his goals of progressing to the pros. Those good-hearted Georgia residents, who have been trying to shed the image of being racists and create a new, more inclusive reputation as a state, aren’t too happy with Sasser.

Adam Sasser has got to go! NO tolerance acceptable for racial slurs on UGA campus. Bye Adam Sasser.

Its still not clear exactly what transpired, but Im going to take a stab in the dark and say the N-word was used. Thats usually the easiest and most blatant way to say I hate Black people, but its totally possible that Sasser was misunderstood 

Check back for more details on what Sasser actually said and what the ramifications of his actions will be if any.
