Letter: There’s no place for racism and hazing in team sports
Hey guys, if “hazing is part of the game,” somebody needs to run interference and change the rules. Racism is not acceptable. It is no joke and should have no place in any space.
Team members should support each other, not assault each other with mean-spirited words and deeds. We often hear that there’s no “I” in team. Insults, intimidation and ignorance need to be rooted out.
More people need to step up and speak up.
Jonathan Martin, you’re brilliant, talented and very cool. All the best to you. Thank you for bringing this issue to the surface.
