Emily, I enjoyed meeting you at the Unconquered dedication ( I sat at your table in the Ballroom ). Anyway, your thoughts and offers of help are most meaningful. Hopefully someone from the President's office has already been in touch with you earlier today. I love your aunt's observation that "white people are always messing things up" ! The NCAA has acted in a way that others have called a "Plantation Mentality".....believing that they know best and must "look out" for others. Did you notice that the NCAA VP admitted that they had talked to Oklahoma Seminoles, but never contacted Seminoles from Florida? Now that's really showing respect for Native Americans!

Great post. Thanks for your insight.
The problem with this whole situation is that the NCAA does not take viewpoints like this into consideration. If one person feels offended, the NCAA thinks it's discriminatory.
I hate the NCAA.

The NCAA is full of **** (use your favorite word for this situation)...
