After much debate, we decided to post these two images that are said to be from the racist Facebook group that was created by USC linebacker Clay Matthews. The images appeared on Sports By Brooks this weekend. Trojan players David Buehler, Brian Cushing, Dan Deckas and Dallas Sartz — all white — also were named as members of the group.
Sports By Brooks points out that the graphic of a black baby in handcuffs actually came from a T-shirt that was the focus of a 2005 story on Black America Web.
USC announced that none of the players involved will be punished. Michael Jackson, USC's vice president of student affairs, told the L.A. Times: "While the group was evidently created as an offshoot to joking between races among teammates at USC, this joke was clearly taken to an improper length."
As stated Friday, we were disturbed the players were not disciplined. After seeing the images, we are stunned by USC's no-discipline stance.
