Clay Matthews, Brian Cushing and others linked to hate group

Postby Skinsfan55 » Fri Apr 17, 2009 9:13 am

USC OLB Clay Matthews reportedly created a Facebook group during his junior season called "White Nation," which showed a photo of an African American baby in handcuffs.
Under the picture was a caption saying "arrest black babies before they become criminals." It also said "This group is not for the faint of heart. All members are athletes of Caucasion descent. We are just doing our duty of protecting the Arian brotherhood." Brian Cushing, K David Buehler, and former Redskins draft pick Dallas Sartz joined the group. The athletic dept. billed the group as a joke. Matthews later issued a formal apology.

Wow, this is serious. ... r-1.206854

That would be a serious red flag IMO and if I was an NFL team I would take Cushing and Matthews off my draft boards. Best case scenario is that this really is a joke... which would display terrible, terrible judgment and total maturity. Worst case is they're all skinheads.

No good can really come out of drafting those two clowns.

It was a pretty dumb thing to do but keep in mind, they were 19. This was something also that they thought was private, and of course it wasn't. It was a team thing, all be it black and white players.

It says this was originally published 2 years ago. If it were true, it would have become public much sooner. It looks like an attempt by someone to hurt his draft position 1 week before the draft.
