Well now let's get down to it.

If you commit a "crime" you should be tried and, if found guilty, imprisoned, right?

Only if the crime is committed by certain people -- or more to the point, not by certain people.

Like college administrators.  They're immune.  You go to prison if you bribe one but if they do the same thing so as to gain advantage (the same advantage you were looking for -- pecuniary advantage!) they get nothing.

Brooks' sentence requires him to attend literacy classes. Martin asked Brooks how he went to Auburn University when he can barely read or write.

"Didn't have to go to class," Brooks said. "In this country, it was all about how good you are, and I was one of the best in the country."

So he didn't have to go to class not only at Auburn University but also in High School either.

Both intentionally allowed him to "continue" despite his being unable to read or write.  That is, he's functionally illiterate.

How did that happen?  As he pointed out it's not an accident.

And may I point out that he's black?

Racial preference?  How come we can't talk about superiority in any area if you're white but it's perfectly fine to trumpet how this black man was "one of the best in the country" at football.  We can look at the racial make-up of football teams and see quite a lack of diversity compared against the population of the nation as a whole.

Where are the Asians, White Americans and Hispanics on said teams?  Why is the NFL overwhelmingly black -- in fact, roughly 68% of NFL players are black and 75% of NBA players.

Only 2% of NBA players are Hispanic and an effective zero, 0.2%, are Asian.

Is not that lack of diversity racist?

How about passing black people through both High School and College despite being unable to read and write when everyone involved knew damn well that this guy was incapable of performance at a grade-school level when it came to academics -- and kept letting it go on for money?

In other words it was a bribe and yet exactly zero of those High School teachers, principals, superintendents or college Deans are in the dock for bribery while at the same time if you "cheat" as an "ordinary person" by doing the same damn thing - bribing someone - you get indicted.

Where's your ******ned pitchfork America?  You stuck it up your own ass, didn't ya?
