    Florida Gators ban Gators Chant

    One of Florida's most well-known cheers at sporting events will be discontinued in an effort to become part of positive change against racism, university president Kent Fuchs announced in a letter to the UF community on Thursday.

    The famous "Gator Bait" chant will no longer be performed by the Gator Band or anyone associated with the University Athletic Association.

    I guess everything is racist now a days. What a complete joke this country is becoming, liberal clowns.

    Will be interesting when they tell the Atlanta Braves and Kansas City Chiefs fans that the Tomahawk Chop is banned.

    I’m ok with the removal of the statues (placed in museums or at Gettysburg or other civil war memorials). I’m good with removing the confederate flag. Pretty much everything else has been overkill, especially this chant ban.

    They can do all the pc liberal blm rewrite history shit they want. It won't change the fact that african american men commit more murders annually than all other races added together!!!!! What's being done by liberals and blm to fix that one?!?! Nothing.....they keep taking aim at removing statues and renaming streets meanwhile black on black murders are sky high and on record pace in some cities during a fukking quarantine of all things, lmao. Blm is a fukking joke. Whatcha all doin bout the dozens of black on black murders every weekend in Chicago, St. Louis, Memphis, Baltimore, Detroit? Ya that's what I thought...nothing.

    The White Stripes rock band will have to change their name too like Lady Antebellum had to. Also Adidas shoes and clothes will have to switch the color of their logo since it's white. White Russian drink will have to be renamed. No more white fences around yards. The stars on the American flag will have to be black now. No more white paper or white chips at casinos. Snow is racist too so that has to be banned. Lmao. Sick world we're living in.

    Are Jack and Meg going to have to change their last names?


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0J2QdDbelmY



    I'm gonna fight 'em all
    A seven nation army couldn't hold me back
    They're gonna rip it off
    Taking their time right behind my back
    And I'm talking to myself at night
    Because I can't forget
    Back and forth through my mind
    Behind a cigarette
    And the message coming from my eyes
    Says, "Leave it alone"
    Don't wanna hear about it
    Every single one's got a story to tell
    Everyone knows about it
    From the Queen of England to the Hounds of Hell
    And if I catch it coming back my way
    I'm gonna serve it to you
    And that ain't what you want to hear
    But that's what I'll do
    And the feeling coming from my bones
    Says, "Find a home"
    I'm going to Wichita
    Far from this opera forevermore
    I'm gonna work the straw
    Make the sweat drip out of every pore
    And I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding
    Right before the Lord
    All the words are gonna bleed from me
    And I will sing no more
    And the stains coming from my blood
    Tell me, "Go back home"

    Knee jerk decisions from directionless politicians. Pandering to anybody to look non racist.
    They can't see that this will aid white supremist groups.

    I have always thought Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben's were kind of racist. I guess you could throw in the Quaker Oats dude and Colonel Sanders as well.

    I guess they will just have to call it "crappy chemical flavored maple syrup"

    The people in Maine have to be crazy happy. They're probably out planting maple trees as we speak.

    University of Florida bans ‘Gator Bait’ chant over ‘racist imagery’



    Enlarge Image
    Florida Gator fans.Getty Image

    The University of Florida is choosing action over words.

    The school is eliminating its “Gator Bait” cheer at athletic games and the Gator Band will no longer use it, school president Kent Fuchs announced in a letter on Thursday. In the letter, Fuchs explained the decision as a way “towards positive change against racism.” He said the cheer included “racist imagery,” even though there were no examples of racist acts that went along with the cheer.

    “It is past time for UF to commit and engage in this challenging, uncomfortable, transformational work. We know that we cannot undo lifetimes of injustice and racism, but we believe we can make progress – in education, in advancing truth, reconciliation and justice, and in anti-racism, equality and working to eradicate inequities,” Fuchs wrote.

    “Gator Bait” was a racial slur used towards African Americans in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, according to the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University. Black babies were used as alligator bait and it became a derogatory term. The chant was traditionally used at Florida games alongside the Gator Chomp. The chomp was not included in the president’s statement.

    The decision comes at a time when protests have broken out against racial injustice and police brutality following the death of black man George Floyd at the hands of a white Minneapolis police officer. The school is planning to require students and staff members to undergo training on racism, inclusion and bias, Fuchs said in the letter. Furthermore, multiple task forces will be formed to document the school’s history and relationship with racism and also review the naming of buildings and monuments that may have racist undertones or represent such feelings.
