I was only 12 years old in 1969 so my world view was still rather childish. We knew there were protesters around the country both against racism and the Viet Nam war, but it was all far removed from our “Mayberry” lives. The common sentiment was that we didn’t want that stuff happening in our state. I didn’t have a good grasp of what happened in Laramie at the time. Really the only time I saw a black man he was in uniform, either Air Force or UW. Far more more common racism in my little world was perpetrated against the migrant farm workers who came to work the fields around Wheatland.

The incident should never be buried. Not for the reasons why the 14 wanted to protest, nor Eaton's racist policies. It took 50 years to begin re-building bridges to the guys that were thrown off the team.

Was Eaton a good football coach and recruiter? Yes. That doesn't make him a good person though.

I'm also 90% sure CheyenneGunSlinger is Dino. Hence why I tend to ignore what he posts.
He isn’t Dino. Dino could never make it that long without some [#]sh#t self promotion.

I’ve been on this site for seven years, but haven’t read everything. Who the heck is Dino and why is he so despised?
Thank your Lucky Stars.......Seriously!

I didn't see the report before the game but when it has come up during games, my biggest issue is how the issue is described. It's only ever said that the Black 14 was protesting "racial injustice." The full truth is that the players wanted to protest the racist policies and actions of the Mormon church and BYU, including administrators, coaches and players. I don't know why that is so hard to include when talking about this.
Well does it come up every game? The left wing media loves a good story that has a racial slant and will not ever let it go.
I'm not even getting to the question of bringing it up or not. My point is that if it does get brought up the full story should be explained. No reason why BYU's racism isnt just as much a part of the story.

His posts are Dino-esque. Fwiw I miss Dino's website/reporting, but could do without the drama. He's a good reporter, but too much other stuff

Your definition of good reporter and mine are very different things. I prefer the non-bigot type that leaves politics out of it and that stays off the field and simply reports during the game.

He was a good reporter. All that stuff you wrote was the "other stuff" which I referenced that I don't care for

I agree with this. I couldn't ever even give his site the time of day to see if he was a good reporter because of the other stuff. He even apparently called me out by name(along with a bunch of other posters) on his radio show but I wouldn't give it a listen. What a complete jackass.

As far as the Op goes. There is zero wrong with reporting/talking about the black 14 before our bowl game. We as a university brought it back to the forefront this year so it makes sense it was talked about before our bowl game as it was a big moment in our season. It isn't some "left wing media" thing. The university did it themselves and it is a positive step for the university with the memorial. Can't keep the past buried.

It should be brought up as often as it needs to be. Lloyd Eaton can [email protected]#$ right off.
