USA Wrestling releases statement on social justice

USA Wrestling, the national governing body for the sport of wrestling in the United States, released a statement on social justice.

Social injustice is wrong and contrary to the inclusive nature of wrestling. USA Wrestling's mission is to provide quality opportunities for its members to achieve their full athletic and human potential. Recent tragedies in our nation compel us to do more and do it better. We stand with our African American and black communities and all of the diverse people who are part of our sport. We will focus our actions on how we can drive change against unjust treatment, police brutality, and systematic racism that is plaguing our nation and world. We need to come together now and use our voice, platform, and actions to help create the kind of society that reflects our values. By its nature, wrestling can be the most inclusive sport on earth. Anyone can wrestle and everyone is welcome. When we hit the mat, we are all part of one wrestling family.

I'm sure that USA Wrestling will drive against unjust treatment and murder of unarmed 86 y/o couples who happen to be visiting their son at a veterans cemetery.

Les - thanks for regurgitating the one story the media outlets you get your “news” from purposely found in order to downplay systemic racism. Your post reflects exactly what systematic racism is, and the minds that these stories hope to reel in. Not sure why it’s so hard to understand the difference between an African American individual committing a heinous murder crime, and the continued systemic murder of African Americans. Until folks like yourself can stop defending one with the other, we will not see the change we need.

"I'm sure that USA Wrestling will drive against unjust treatment and murder of unarmed 86 y/o couples who happen to be visiting their son at a veterans cemetery."

I'll bet you're wrong. Me thinks that USA Rasslin will minimize it, deflect that it happened, and blame the victims for something that they surely must have done to bring on the attacks. Why, me thinks that USA rasslin is in cahoots with socialerism!
