Wednesday Open Thread: Dying To Play – Black Athletes and Racial Violence

Good Morning POU! We continue to look at important, but despicable stories regarding black athletes and racial violence that occurred during their respective sports.

The Johnny Bright incident was a violent on-field against African-american player Johnny Bright by a white opposing player during an American college football game held on October 20, 1951 in Stillwater, Oklahoma. The game was significant in itself as it marked the first time that an African American athlete with a national profile and of critical importance to the success of his team had played against Oklahoma A&M College (now Oklahoma State University) at Oklahoma A&M’s Lewis Field. Bright’s injury also highlighted the racial tensions of the times and assumed notoriety when it was captured in what was later to become both a widely disseminated and eventually Pulitzer Prize-winning photo sequence.

Johnny Bright’s participation as a halfback/quarterback in the collegiate football game between the Drake Bulldogs and Oklahoma A&M Aggies on October 20, 1951 at Lewis Field was controversial even before it began. Bright had been the first African American football player to play at Lewis Field two years prior (without incident). In 1951, Bright was a pre-season Heisman Trophy candidate and led the nation in total offense. Bright had never played for a losing team in his college career. Coming into the contest, Drake carried a five-game winning streak, owing much to Bright’s rushing and passing abilities.

It was an open secret that Oklahoma A&M players were targeting Bright. Both Oklahoma A&M’s student newspaper, The Daily O’Collegian, and the local newspaper, The News Press, reported that Bright was a marked man, and several A&M students were openly claiming that Bright “would not be around at the end of the game.” Although Oklahoma A&M had integrated in 1949, the Jim Crow spirit was still very much alive on campus.

During the first seven minutes of the game, Bright was knocked unconscious three times by blows from Oklahoma A&M defensive tackle Wilbanks Smith. While Smith’s final elbow blow broke Bright’s jaw, he was still able to complete a 61-yard touchdown pass to Drake halfback Jim Pilkington a few plays later. Soon afterward, the injury forced him to leave the game. Bright finished the game with less than 100 yards, the first time in his three-year collegiate career. Oklahoma A&M eventually won 27–14.

Bob Spiegel, a reporter with the Des Moines Register, interviewed several spectators after the game, eventually publishing a report on the incident in the October 30, 1951 issue of the newspaper. According to Spiegel’s report, several of the Oklahoma A&M students he interviewed overheard an Oklahoma A&M coach repeatedly say “Get that nigger” whenever the A&M practice squad ran Drake plays against the Oklahoma A&M starting defense prior to the October 20 game. Spiegel also recounted the experiences of a businessman and his wife, who were seated behind a group of Oklahoma A&M practice squad players. At the beginning of the game, one of the players turned around said, “We’re gonna get that nigger.” After the first blow to Bright was delivered by Smith, the same player again turned around and told the businessman, “See that knot on my jaw? That same guy [Smith] gave me that the very same way in practice.”

Johnny Bright Incident – Oct. 21, 1951 Des Moines Register newspaper cover showing Robinson and Ultang photo sequence

A six photograph sequence of the incident captured by Des Moines Register cameramen John Robinson and Don Ultang clearly showed Smith’s jaw-breaking blow was thrown well after Bright had handed the ball off to Drake fullback Gene Macomber, and was well behind the play. Robinson and Ultang had actually set up a camera focusing on Bright before the game after the rumors of him being targeted became too loud to ignore. They rushed the film to Des Moines as soon as Bright was knocked out of the game. Ultang said years later that they were very lucky that the incident took place when it did; they’d only planned to stay through the first quarter so they could have enough time to develop the pictures before the deadline. The sequence won Robinson and Ultang the 1952 Pulitzer Prize for Photography, and eventually made the cover of Life Magazine.

Aftermath

Oklahoma A&M’s president, Oliver Willham, denied anything happened even after evidence of the incident was published nationwide. This began a cover-up that would last over half a century; during that time, whenever the story was discussed, the standard response from A&M/OSU was “no comment.” The determination to gloss over the affair was so strong that when Robert B. Kamm succeeded Willham in 1966, he knew that he could not even discuss the matter even though he had been Drake’s dean of men at the time of the incident.

When it became apparent that neither Oklahoma A&M nor the Missouri Valley Conference, to which both Drake and Oklahoma A&M belonged, would take any disciplinary action against Smith, Drake withdrew from the MVC in protest. The Bulldogs would not return to the MVC until 1956 for non-football sports, and would not return for football until 1971. Fellow member Bradley University pulled out of the league in solidarity with Drake and did not return for non-football sports until 1955; its football team never played another down in the MVC (Bradley dropped football in 1970). The incident eventually provoked changes in NCAA football rules regarding illegal blocking, and mandated the use of more protective helmets with face guards.

Bright’s broken jaw limited his effectiveness for the remainder of his senior season at Drake, but he earned 70 percent of the yards Drake gained and scored 70 percent of the Bulldogs‘ points, despite missing the better part of the final three games of the season. Bright finished fifth in the balloting for the 1951 Heisman Trophy, and played in the post-season East–West Shrine Game and the Hula Bowl.

Following his 1952 graduation from Drake, Bright went on to enjoy a 12-year professional football career in the Canadian Football League, retiring in 1964 as the CFL’s all-time leading rusher, and was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 1970.

Recalling the incident without apparent bitterness in a 1980 Des Moines Register interview three years before his death, Bright commented: “There’s no way it couldn’t have been racially motivated.” Bright went on to add: “What I like about the whole deal now, and what I’m smug enough to say, is that getting a broken jaw has somehow made college athletics better. It made the NCAA take a hard look and clean up some things that were bad.”

When asked about Smith, whom he had not seen since the incident, Bright said he felt “null and void” about Smith, but added: “The thing has been a great influence on my life. My total philosophy of life now is that, whatever a person’s bias and limitation, they deserve respect. Everyone’s entitled to their own beliefs.”

Wilbanks Smith received over 1000 letters regarding the incident. Most of the mail was hate mail or death threats, but some was congratulatory and thankful. Smith maintained that he was not racist, the hit was “not a racial incident,” and that he had landed “the same hit” on a white player earlier in the game. He never apologized for the incident, but said in 2012 that he was glad the incident had helped to integrate college football, saying “It took me a long time before I could smile about it. But now I can. I think it was a tool [Civil Rights’] organizations used, and it was very effective.”

Apology

On September 28, 2005, Oklahoma State University President David J. Schmidly wrote a letter to Drake President David Maxwell formally apologizing for the incident. The apology came 22 years after Bright’s death. Schmidly, reiterating a conversation earlier in the month over the phone, called the team’s behavior that day “an ugly mark on Oklahoma State University and college football.”

    Senate resolution to force Trump’s hand on condemning Charlottesville hate groups
    09/06/2017 06:00 AM EDT

    The Senate is preparing to force President Trump to go on record to officially condemn the deadly white supremacist rallies in Charlottesville last month.

    The Senate routinely takes up nonbinding measures commemorating people and institutions in the form of concurrent resolutions and simple resolutions – which are both purely symbolic and not submitted to the White House for the president’s signature.

    But backers of the Charlottesville resolution have strategically chosen to introduce their measure as a joint resolution, which means it will be sent to Trump to sign into law.

    • jds09

    Trump still pushing for a 15 percent corporate rate
    The president is sticking with his target, even though advisers working on tax reform have told him it’s not a workable figure.
    09/05/2017 09:00 PM EDT

    President Donald Trump is increasingly fixated on slashing the top corporate tax rate to 15 percent — a level that pretty much no one else working on the issue in the White House or Congress thinks is workable.

    In a White House meeting on Tuesday, Trump again expressed his strong desire to hit the 15 percent target, from today’s 35 percent.

    “You can’t get to 15 percent, and anyone who has a back of an envelope can make that calculation,” said a senior official working on tax reform. “And he may not like that truth, but it’s the truth. It’s just math.

      Let’s be clear, the NFL’s line is, “He’s not good enough. We’d take any guy who would help us win,” then vaguely gesture to the list of women/child beaters still in the NFL, because they have “talent.”

      THEN Lewis comes out and says, “He WAS good enough to be considered but then his girlfriend did a tweet that hurted my fee-fees and our kind and generous owner said. no.”
      So what is it? Is he good enough, or is he being barred from the NFL by some unspoken code of “Don’t upset the whites”?

    House GOP group puts staff in six new districts

    Source: The Hill

    The Congressional Leadership Fund, a major GOP outside group that played a pivotal role in recent special elections, is putting boots on the ground in six new competitive congressional districts to get a head start on the 2018 midterm elections.

    The group, which serves as the de facto super PAC of House Republican Leadership and Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), now has staff in 17 districts represented by vulnerable Republican lawmakers.

    The new offices are in the districts represented by Reps. Mike Bost (Ill.), Kevin Yoder (Kan.), Ryan Costello (Penn.), Brian Fitzpatrick (Penn.), Tom MacArthur (N.J.) and Leonard Lance (N.J.).

    “Our data-driven field program is expanding, but more importantly, our staff and interns are building relationships and having ongoing conversations with voters across key congressional districts fourteen months before the midterm elections,” said Corry Bliss, the group’s executive director, in a statement.

    Democrats launch super PAC to win back statehouses

    Source: Politico

    Democrats have been throttled by Republicans in the all-important battle for state legislative chambers the past decade. Now they’re trying to turn the tide with the launch of a new super PAC.

    Aiming to play a similar role as Senate Majority PAC does for Senate races and House Majority PAC does for House races, Forward Majority is launching this week as a vehicle for winning back state legislatures ahead of the next round of redistricting in 2021.

    Led by a group of Barack Obama campaign alums and veterans of Democratic politics and the business world, the organization is kicking off with a $1 million prototype effort to play in races for Virginia’s House of Delegates this year. It’s aiming to raise up to $100 million to win back legislative bodies in 12 states over the next four years, according to plans shared with POLITICO.

    Two senators aim to challenge Trump’s transgender troops order in defense bill

    Source: The Washington Post

    By Karoun Demirjian September 5 at 10:56 PM

    Two senators are preparing an amendment to challenge President Trump’s announced ban on transgender people serving in the military that they hope to attach to a sweeping defense bill the chamber is set to consider this month.

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday that she is drafting the amendment with Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) to “try to protect the transgender troops” against the order that Trump initially issued via Twitter in July banning them from the military.

    In a series of tweets, the president wrote that the government “will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.” Last month, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis froze implementation of the president’s policy until the Pentagon can convene experts to help determine how to best carry it out. In an official memorandum, the White House gave Mattis until Feb. 1 to make that determination.

    The backlash to Trump’s order has been swift and bipartisan — but it is not yet clear what support there will be for Gillibrand’s planned amendment. Representatives for Collins and Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.), who is managing the bill, declined to comment for this story.

    Charlotte mayoral candidate reminds voters she’s ‘white’
    Tuesday, September 5th 2017, 3:37 pm EDT

    A Charlotte mayoral candidate made a statement on social media on why people should vote for her. One of those reasons included race.

    “VOTE FOR ME!” Kimberley Paige Barnette posted on Facebook. “REPUBLICAN & SMART, WHITE, TRADITIONAL.”

    Barnette, who turned 53 on Friday, is a former Mecklenburg County magistrate making her first run for office.
    She could not be immediately reached, but the post appeared to be later taken down.

    The post drew angry responses on Facebook.
    “You are NOT doing conservatives or Republicans any favors,” one man wrote.
    […]
    In a WTVI debate last month, Barnette criticized last September’s Charlotte protesters. She called the protests “an expression of Democratic behavior.”

    Asked how the city could help its lower-income residents, Barnette said, “I don’t think we should encourage more lower-income people to (come to) Charlotte.”
    “We should attract higher-income people.”

    Barnette is a distant long-shot in a GOP primary featuring city council member Kenny Smith and businessman Gary Dunn.

    Source: The Hill

    BY ALEXANDER BOLTON – 09/06/17 10:41 AM EDT

    Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) said on Wednesday that if Republicans do not bring to the floor a bill to protect an estimated 800,000 illegal immigrants brought to the country as children from deportation, Democrats will try to attach it to any must-pass legislation that moves this fall.

    “If a clean Dream Act does not come to the floor in September, we are prepared to attach it to other items this fall until it passes,” Schumer announced at a press conference with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and other colleagues.

    Democrats made the threat after President Trump announced he would rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which former President Barack Obama implemented in 2012.

    Trump gave Congress six months to pass legislation to address the future status of these immigrants.

    Kasich offers home for Dreamers in Ohio

    Source: The Hill

    BY ROBIN EBERHARDT – 09/06/17 09:53 AM EDT

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich said that Dreamers are welcome to come to Ohio, while slamming Trump’s decision to cancel the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

    “If the dreamers want to go somewhere and live, come to Ohio,” he said.

    “We want all the immigrants to come to Ohio because we know how much they contribute to America,” he said on “CBS This Morning” Wednesday.

    Kasich added that his decision “is not the America that we all love,” and that Trump’s decision to cancel the DACA program is putting the Dreamers in jeopardy.

    • Kasich will never have the numbers. On top of that Trump’s base agrees with his decision so he’s on the opposite side on this one.

    • GOVCHRIS1988

      If any of them run, its to destroy Trump. They will not win that nomination and the election. It happened in 1980 and it happened in 1992. If they run, its to destroy Trump.

    ‘It’s A Battle For All Of Us’: Anquan Boldin Retires To Focus On Activism

    After 14 years in the NFL, Anquan Boldin is ending one career to begin another. The 36-year-old Super Bowl champion and potential Hall of Famer is leaving football to focus on social activism and charity work full time.

    Just last month, Boldin signed a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills. But not even two weeks later, he quit.

    “Football takes up a huge amount of your time,” Boldin tells NPR’s Rachel Martin. “I wanted to be able to spend as much time as I felt was needed to work on advocacy.”

    This isn’t an unfamiliar field for the former wide receiver. In 2015, he was named the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year — an annual award that honors a player’s volunteer and charity work.

    Jewish Trump supporter admits spray-painting swastikas on his own house in hate crime hoax
    05 SEP 2017 AT 20:27 ET

    In Schenectady, New York, a man who reported that vandals spray-painted swastikas on his house earlier this year has admitted to faking the crime.

    According to the Albany Times-Union, Andrew King, who called police in February about the Nazi vandalism he himself drew, has plead guilty to falsely reporting an incident — a misdemeanor in the state of New York.

    Prior to police revelations that King faked the incident, Schenectady’s Daily Gazette reported that King is both Jewish and a supporter of President Donald Trump. When he first reported the vandalism, King claimed it was a religious hate crime.

    Donald Trump is a photo negative of Barack Obama.

    Everything you thought Obama and his family was going to be, Donald Trump and his family are.

    Donald Trump is what the vast majority of Americans wanted. Yes, what the VAST MAJORITY of Americans wanted. This has nothing to do with whether you voted for him or not. If you didn’t vote for Hillary, if you didn’t vote at all, if you screamed EARN THIS VOTE OR LOSE, if you screamed BERNIE WOUDDA, if you are Bernie Sanders and you continued to pout, smirk & harm Hillary knowing Trump was the alternative, if you are Susan Sarandon and you wanted Trump to win so everyone would suffer so badly we would have no choice but to join Our Revolution, if you ran to Trump Tower to kiss his ass, if you voted for Harambe, if you voted for Jill Stein, if you are gay or Latinx or a white woman or a blackademic and you crapped all over Obama and/or Hillary:

    YOU wanted Donald Trump. You craved for him, you yearned for him, you lusted for him, you got him. Don’t cry now. Dry your tears and re-evaluate yourself.

    How One Reporter Found Herself Writing About The Charleston Church Shooter, Dylann Roof

    …MCEVERS: Wow. And you also talk about this idea of grievance, you know, that Dylann Roof and people like him who have these grievances, who feel left behind and then they’re able to connect online with this narrative that the world is against you, that there is this race that’s trying to keep you down – that that’s a really new thing.

    GHANSAH: You know, it’s interesting. I’m not sure it is. You’ve always had poor white people in America, right? What you haven’t always had, though, I think is the discussion of where these people come from and what they do with their anger. And Dylann can’t imagine that because of what’s happened in the last 200 years with the consolidation of whiteness and even lower-income whiteness, anything’s better than being black.

    And so there’s this whole myth that black people have to take ultimate responsibility, can’t be on welfare, can’t be poor and are coming out of chattel slavery. And these same white guys can’t even turn the mirror back onto themselves to say, how did I get in this situation? And one reason that they get in the situation – right? – Dylann is a GED ninth-grade dropout, OK? There’s no one in my family (laughter) as a black woman who has not been to college or graduate school for 200 years.

    So Dylann and these – this sort of generation of white men – they take no responsibility for the fact that they never learned a skill. They never learned a trade. They never went to school. They’ve never done the work. And so if you’re really talking about who wants something from America without putting anything in, it’s them.

          Being 43 doesn’t mean you need to dress frumpy or matronly but you do need to dress appropriately which means not looking like you’re hanging out with the class of 2021.

    Trump is in major trouble with Mueller & he knows it. Distract and
