Over the sound of Red Mountain fans chanting “Mountain fight,” a screeching noise pierced the air. Gueye kept his focus on the court as cackles of “Hoo-hoo-ah-ah,” mimicking the sound of a monkey, came from the throats of some in the Red Mountain crowd standing in the bleachers.

Some of the students began pounding fists against chests and scratching their armpits.

Gueye was the only black player on the floor at the time.

Gueye, who scored 17 points in the game, did not respond.

I noticed it but I had no choice but to ignore it. It kills me that racism still exists, but I’ve been dealing with stuff like this my whole life. I know the kid wanted me to react, but I wasn’t going to give him what he wanted. ~ Gueye

Red Mountain Principal Jared Ryan walked over and escorted one of the students out of the stands, making him leave the premises.

Unblur their faces. they’re old enough to know right from wrong!

We’re often told that the younger generation is less racist, and then when kids show the same investments in white supremacy, we’re told that they’re “just kids” and “made a mistake.” This incident and others show that the problem has little to do with age and more to do with the social and psychological investments in white supremacy.

“At the end of the day, I know what I’m doing is right and I’m doing it for the right reasons, so whatever the reaction or backlash or any of those things are, I feel comfortable with because I know what I’m doing is right.” ~  Colin Kaepernick

It is a scary thing that an image of a gun being pointed at a human being by another human being is sold and worn by anyone…  

His actions have done more to expose the true scope of racism in this country than any poll, study, or scholarly article ever could. Go to the comments section of any article or post concerning his protest and they are filled with people falling all over themselves to spew their hate. It is as sad a time for America.
