Marcus Stokes believed that after committing to the University of Florida to play for the Gators, he had fulfilled his lifelong goal of becoming a college quarterback. But on Sunday, after a regrettable video leaked, Florida abruptly destroyed his ambition.
Last Friday, Stokes videotaped himself singing a rap song in his car. Unsurprisingly, this song contained a number of coarse language, including the N-word. He repeats the lyrics, complete with the N-word, in the video below:

After being denied a scholarship, Stokes expressed regret over the video. He claimed he had no malicious intent and had grown from his error:

The talented quarterback is hoping that a different school will give him another chance despite his error of judgement. Leading recruiting analysts, however, believe that this prospect is difficult. Few collegiate teams will take a chance out of concern about upsetting woke sensibilities.
Stokes is the most recent example of white sports stars whose appearances have been cancelled due to alleged racial insensitivity. When corporate media writers opted to resurrect previous tweets in pursuit of a story, these players were about Stokes' age. You can find examples of this type of trash journalism here and here.
Another uncomfortable truth is that nobody would have noticed if a black person had uploaded a video of themselves singing the song. Only white individuals can be racist in the view of the academic and media elite. This ridiculous viewpoint is in direct opposition to reality. Racism knows no hue, and is understood by everyone with even a modicum of common sense.
This politically correct mindset also explains why reports of black-on-black crime in Chicago and Baltimore are rarely heard. In the meantime, incidents like the Jussie Smollett attack fake make headlines throughout the world. In America, white on black crime is so uncommon that the media frequently fabricates it.
One school of thinking holds that rap artists should refrain from using the N-Word in their songs if they don't want fans to copy them. This similar point was made by a black Twitter user:
The kid was singing along to a rap song and for that his college football career is destroyed. This is abject insanity. Totally indefensible on every level. https://t.co/owqdlfSsoN

America needs to practice ethics more consistently and with more grace. Stokes merits another opportunity to pursue his ambition of playing football, and maybe he will demonstrate to the Gators what they were missing.
