Deadspin shared a story of a number of majority Native players in three Lacrosse teams in a Dakota league who shared instances of racism. Subsequently, the league expelled the three teams. Read the article here on Deadspin.
Three native teams booted out of a lacrosse league by white officials. The teams aren’t allowed to play the game their nations created & shared. If this isn’t a microcosm for #Indigenous #Settler relations, I don’t know what is. #lax @nll https://t.co/qiTq0uotQa

This makes me so angry. And brings back painful memories.
To the sports journalists who follow me, and I know there are more than a few, this story is worthy of your attention and work.
