SEC student-athletes to wear warm-up shirts to support racial equity and social justice: “TOGETHER. It Just Means More.”

Southeastern Conference student-athletes will wear pre-event warm-up shirts that display “TOGETHER. It Just Means More.” on the first day of competition in all sports during the 2020-21 athletic year, the league announced Friday morning.

According to the release, the TOGETHER theme was first introduced by the SEC in 2017 when it celebrated the 50th anniversary of the integration of Southeastern Conference athletics in 1967. The SEC honored trailblazing individuals in public and private celebrations and recognized them with public messaging under the theme “TOGETHER. It Just Means More.”

“The integration of SEC athletics represented a significant moment of change and now, as we experience another period of important change in race relations, the SEC continues to recognize the opportunity for athletics to have a positive influence on our society,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. “We aspire to come together, to use the successful concept of ‘team’ with no division or boundaries established by race, to set an example and affect change for a more unified future for all of us.”

SEC institutions will have the discretion to employ additional initiatives throughout the year as the conference-wide TOGETHER initiative serves as a supplement to institutional-specific activities in support of racial equity and social justice.

    Leave this crap politics out of sports. Do this after the game on their own personal time.

    Why this is just so cute. Social justice and all that good stuff. Or in other words, setting race relations back decades to push a Marxist agenda to fundamentally change the country. The degree to which people and organizations are twisting themselves into pretzels to prove they aren’t racist to an organization that is racist is astounding. It’s really pathetic. Instead of being “woke”, people need to wake up and realize they are being played for fools.

      Everyone who argues every little act that supports racial equality is also trying to prove they aren’t racist …. looking at you, Jam

    All you Republican’s want is an authoritarian dictatorship. Trump in nothing more than a Putinite who wants to control the US and let the wealthy become the ruling class. The Democrats are trying to preserve the Union while Republicans want to create an Oligarchy. As far as athletes speaking out, they are exercising their Constitutional Rights! We live in a society where minorities and the poor are at a disadvantage, and white privilege exists. America has always been about change and making sure all people have an opportunity to better themselves. However, it is getting harder and harder now that politicians like Moscow Mitch and Comrade Trump support white supremacy groups over Black Live Matter. Let the athletes speak! Support their Constitutional Rights!

      Well I was going to stay out of this one, but come on with the Russia thing man. Mueller, Styork (or however you spell his name) and his girlfriend, etc., threw the kitchen sink at Trump with the Russia/Putin charges and found bupkis. Now Trump’s people that were charged are getting exonerated, and the people falsifying evidence like the fake dossier are starting to get charged.

      Trump isn’t perfect, but please at least deal in facts, not trumped (heh) up charges

      Trump doesn’t support white supremacy groups you’re full of shit buddy. If that was the case no black person would vote for him and he will get his share of the black vote in November.

      Only a white supremacist would claim that. It’s astonishing, people’s willful ignorance, in support of someone who so clearly is tearing our country apart. Trump is actually not a conservative, so I agree with his policies more than any other Republican President in my lifetime. But as someone who swore the oath to uphold the constitution and someone who avows to counter bullies and abusers with everything I have, Trump is the most disgusting and vile person who has darkened the halls of the White House. You have to be a white supremacist, mysoginist, bully or hypocritical evangelical to support this “man” who “leads” us. If you’re a patriot you’d vote him out just to protect the fabric of our democracy because he sure as hell doesn’t. And he’s going to lose this election because of us veterans turning him, because he’s a disgrace as a leader and he continuously brings shame on our nation with his behavior and how he treats the military and veterans. He makes me want to puke and so does anyone who’s planning to vote for him a second time.

      Just because someone disagrees with you they are a racist. Look in the mirror and ask yourself if maybe you are part of the problem.

      Satchel, BLM is a black supremacy group (not everyone who ignorantly uses the phrase). Trump did more for black people than any other president with record employment pre Covid. He isn’t perfect, not by a long shot, but let’s deal in facts here, not some nebulous “Anyone who doesn’t agree with me is an old white supremest.” You don’t know me. You don’t know anything about me if you only judge me because I believe all lives matter equally. What is your response to the people that say you’re automatically racist if you’re white? You’re dangerously close to saying that yourself, but I know you’re white because I’ve seen your Twitter account.

      No, of course racism isn’t American, but neither is Marxism.

    I don’t think it mean that at all, I think it means, together, it just means more. Liberalism is much more dangerous that the China Virus.
