A black New Jersey high school football player received a threatening voice mail on his school answering machine just before a day before he visited prospective school Clemson University.
Rashan Gary has been the top football recruit among his peers in Paramus Catholic High School in the year 2016. Gary played as a defensive lineman. On January 28 at 2:30 a.m., which was a day before he visited Clemson, South Carolina for the football recruit’s official visit, he received a voicemail on the school’s answering machine from anonymous person who identified himself as “Clemson Dan.”
The 58-seconds lasting voicemail said, “Yes, this here is ‘Clemson Dan,’ and this message is for Mr. Rashan Gary. We just wantin’ to know if you’re coming down here for a visit, you better be serious about it, ’cause there’s only two things we love, and that’s Clemson football and the KKK,” Atlanta Black Star reported.
“We don’t take no losers, no stragglers, no lazies, no dumb people … so if you’re coming down here, you gotta do just like the KKK and be serious about your football, this ain’t no fooling thing. We Clemson. We big-time football down here.” the caller continued.
Consequently, this was the second time a nationally recognized football player from Paramus Catholic has been threatened, and it does not speak well of Clemson. There is no doubt about Clemson being a racist city, because these are proofs and instances. Recently, someone had put bananas on the black history banner, and now threatening message to an incoming student.
These acts should not be entertained in the universities and Clemson president must review university policy about racism and make an investigation of cases of racism that become more frequent.
