That is why I am speaking out.


I know ECU isn't endorsing a Marxist group.

I know the young men and women who play for ECU aren't endorsing a Marxist group.

I know the folks I grew up with are not endorsing a Marxist group.

They simply needed to be reminded during a time when the world seemed hard on them that their lives mattered to people who didn't look like them.

So I embrace people like Coach Houston who recognized that need and acted on it. I like to think I keep company with good people who are not afraid to lend a helping hand to all people at the end of the day.

I regret in one way this thread went sideways, but on the other hand sometimes having to explain our positions is not a bad thing.

Stay safe and Go Pirates!
