The entire country is still upset over the death of George Floyd by Minneapolis cops who have since been charged with murder. Protests have continued as people call for change as race continues to be a huge issue for a large majority of people.
In the midst of that, Jordan Clark, a Sun Devils cornerback and son of former NFL standout Ryan Clark, detailed an incident where a woman was racist towards him and his teammates.
Clark says that he and a group of his teammates went to the local Whataburger, and because the dining area was closed, they tried to have someone in a car take their money to buy the food. They asked a White woman first who stated she was in a hurry, so they got a younger white dude to do it.
When they went to wait for the food, however, the first woman pulled up to the pay window, and accused them of harassment. She ended up getting her food for free and then yelled the n-word at them as she left.
The Whataburger manager was also deeply unhelpful, Clark said.
“He didn’t bat an eye, or think twice about what he had heard,” the Sun Devil football player wrote. “He didn’t apologize to us for it happening, or show any sympathy at all. He was quick to condemn us, and tell us we were wrong. Quick to threaten us, and say he’d call the police.”
“This is a problem you have to take a side on. you are either condemning racism, or allowing it to happen.”
His father, Ryan, is a former NFL cornerback with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins. He currently works at ESPN as an NFL analyst, and before Herm Edwards took the head coaching job at Arizona State, they were work colleagues.
