Rachel Richardson praises BYU AD for his actions following racial slur incident

  1. Teammates
    • Made me feel seen
    • Made me feel heard
  2. Tom Holmoe ( Athletic Director – BYU )
    • Sincerity
      • He was very sincere
    • Truth
      • He ran me through the truth
    • Athletic Director
      • He explained to me he is only an Athletic Director ( AD )
      • He is only responsible for student athletes
      • and not the entire student body
      • And, definitely not the fans in the stand
  3. Mind Shift
    • That kind of put my mind in an entirely different perspective
    • We as athletes do have access
    • We do have mandatory training in things like this
    • We get training in sexual assault, racism
    • Things other students do not always get full training on
    • And, just say honestly I am going to stay out of it
  4. Nina King ( Athletic Director – Duke )
  5. Reaction
    • As a young black woman in America, I do not have the privilege of reacting angrily
    • As that will only lend itself to all the stereotypes of an angry black woman
    • I felt like responding to it the way I did, will help the greater purpose
    • That purpose being awareness
    • Everyone from both sides should always and only be working together
    • We should not be trying to create two sides
  6. Hope
    • My hope is that other institutions should do a better job of putting in the funds to educate the general student body

 

Heavenly Father

Heavenly Father, please do not fail to “Run us through the truth“.

Within all the love, steadiness, and healthiness of fatherhood.
