RALEIGH, N.C. -- Disturbing claims of racism on the court led to the William Peace University Women's Basketball Team walking out on their shot at the conference title. The team did it in an act of solidarity with Lauryn Cross -- a star point guard. It started back in January when, during a heated matchup against Mary Baldwin University, she says a white player insulted her. (Snip) Meredith College Head Basketball Coach LaQuanda Quick issued the following statement: "The Meredith College basketball team and the College's athletics program take accusations of racism, on the court or off, very seriously. This summer, our


Racism accusation coming from 1 player torpedoed their season and tainted other teams. Maybe she'll end up as a Royal Duchess too?

Woke is more important than winning a championship. In this day and age, finding a 18-something white college girl who uses the N-word in a black’s face is as likely as finding Bigfoot. I smell a hoax/lie.

I hope things get cleaned up and maybe they should start with some of the disgusting songs that young people listen to on a regular basis. And, trust me, the filthy language is used in these songs. My daughter was asked to do a homework assignment in her English class that required disseminating song lyrics. It was a filthy song and we scheduled an appointment with the teacher. Basically, if she didn't do the assignment, she would get a failing grade on it. We talked to the principal and could not get anywhere. I don't know the whole situation here but when nobody does anything about these disgusting songs, maybe kids don't know that they are using filthy language?

By the way, I might be using the wrong word - disseminating. Whatever the word, the disgusting song was given to her for an assignment. . .

I am not excusing unsportsmanlike conduct and if the accusations are legit, the other player should be repremanded BUT trash talk isn't new. In any competitive situation from sports to business to war, when the enemy finds your soft spot and can get under your skin, having no impulse control makes you your own worst enemy. Toughen up snowflake!! When the rubber meets the road, just picking up your toys and going home isn't an option.

#1 trash talker of all time: Larry Bird. Never used a racist word. Never. Having said that, the accusation is really difficult to believe. I am to believe you want to play college basketball if you disdain black people? I am to believe a white player can race slur on the bball court and 9 players don't ... "correct" her? "I don't think so, Tim"

Okay, here is an "UN-WOKE" comment. What if this was merely STRATEGY? If I can say something rude, crude, and/or disparaging to an opponent before or during a big game that will mess up their play, why wouldn't I? It's called "Trash Talk." And as much as I hate Trash Talk, it's in EVERY sport, and has been forever! There was that great scene during the 1970 movie M*A*S*H football game. One of the 4077's linemen is getting beat by a defensive player. It is suggested that, before the next play, the offensive lineman say something rude to the defensive player about his sister. Mayhem...

#12, I was thinking of the same scene in MASH. The black character, Spearchucker Jones, gets called the N word by the opposing player. Someone tells Jones some dirt about the player’s sister that he uses against him. The defensive players goes ballistic and gets thrown out of the game.

Lauryn Cross kept saying the other player said "something like the N word", or allegedly said it. Either they said it or they didn't. The fact that Cross was the one who actually harassed and physically assaulted other players totally detracts from her claims of victim status to me. Seems like she is using the racist N word claims to cover up her own problem with aggressive behavioral problems. She was the one who received disciplinary actions and was suspended, not other players. No, because it is fashionable to believe all claims of racism, the entire women's basketball team lost their chance to play for the championship. Wouldn't it have been better to have played and won the championship to prove to everyone that no matter what anyone says or calls you, you are better than them and can rise above it. Prove them wrong. Now the women's team looks like a bunch of woke snowflakes who possibly gave up the championship over a lie.

Both the "offending" teams have black players and staff. I find it difficult to believe that two incidents involving two schools brought out "N******" from any players. Why her? Why not other black Meredith players? This has a "noose" story feel to it.

When I was in high school and college, I remember hearing stories from black athletes whose response to racist insults was to use them as motivation to play better. They would say that they had been taught that the way to defeat such attitudes was to be a better player, and a better person, than the one throwing the insults. This is the opposite. It teaches people that they can win by using this to get under their opponents skin.

Another fantastic piece of journalism by ABC. "Basically she had called me a N*****. And then she had walked to the ref and told him 'can you please watch number 15. You know how they get.' Referring to the color of my skin." What does "basically" mean? Two refs and 9 other kids on the court. Did anyone else hear it? Was the referee that was referenced as being involved interviewed for his side? Did anyone else hear what was said in the second accusation? This is sounding a little "Juicy". Were these girls wearing MAGA hats at the time?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the House could ultimately vote to unseat Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, who won Iowa's 2nd Congressional District seat by just six votes out of more than 394,000 cast. Pelosi told reporters that the Democratic-led House Administration Committee “is following the law,” in its review of the election, and it could ultimately result in a move to force out the first-term Iowa Republican. “We will see where that takes us, but there could be a scenario to that extent,” Pelosi said.

The legislation also calls on the Department of Housing and Urban Development to establish and oversee a “Landlord Relief Fund,” to cover any losses landlords would receive as a result of the payment cancellations.

A significant provision making any student loan forgiveness tax-free has been included in the $1.9 trillion federal coronavirus stimulus package that’s working its way through Congress and will likely soon be signed into law. Currently, any student loan debt canceled by the government can be considered taxable and levied at the borrower’s normal income tax rate. For example, if someone earns $50,000 a year, and was at a 22% tax rate, and received $30,000 in student loan forgiveness, they might be slapped with a $6,600 bill from the IRS. Soon, borrowers may be off the hook from these payments. What

Eli Lilly & Co says its combination antibody therapy is effective at treating mild to moderate cases of COVID-19. The treatment, a mixture of drugs bamlanivimab and etesevimab, was developed by Indianapolis-based Lilly and the Canadian company AbCellera. It recognizes the virus once a person is infected and attaches to it, preventing the pathogen from entering human cells, and therefore neutralizing it. In trial data released on Wednesday, Eli Lilly said the combination reduced the risk of hospitalization and death by 87 percent compared to a placebo. The results are an improvement of an earlier study of the combination, which reduced the risk of hospitalization and death by 70 percent.

The legislation, H.R. 8, sponsored by Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA), passed by a vote of 227 to 203. H.R. 8 would expand retail point-of-sale background checks so as to cover private points-of-sale. This will criminalize an individual who sells a 5-shot revolver to a lifelong neighbor, unless that neighbor first undergoes a National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) check, conducted by the FBI.
