Georgetown University’s Grand Tradition of Basketball … Racism

By Nicholas Stix

When you see the phrase “social activism,” regarding John Thompson Jr. (the father), that’s just a euphemism for his in-your-face black racism.

By the way, the New York Post’s Phil Mushnick wrote years ago that he didn’t buy the cover story for the elder Thompson’s sudden “retirement” in the middle of a season, and was sure that he was pushed out. That was during the middle of one of the periodic spasms of exposés of academic corruption on behalf of black athletes, at the University of Minnesota, in 1999, over white personnel illegally doing school work for black jocks. Mushnick suggested that the same sort of corruption had cost Thompson his job at Georgetown.

At Countenance.

I recall sometime in the 1980's there was one of the periodic attempts to "tighten" eligibility rules in the NCAA. John Thompson walked off the court in the middle of a game and later said it was "in protest" of the new rules.
