Default 17 year old loses American Football scholarship after saying the N-word.

https://www.wcpo.com/news/national/h...th-racial-slur

Now this is probably gonna be a hot take that I'm about to say.

But considering he is 17 years old, couldn't he have faced a suspension if the University honestly felt like they needed to punish him over this Rap lyric?

Personally I strongly dislike where society is going when it's coming to a lack of second chances.

I personally feel like we all make mistakes, I honestly don't get why a 17 year old can't be forgiven for his by his University?

Scholarship places are highly competitive, they have no reason to award it to someone with a blemish when there are thousands of alternatives

Serves him right. A 17-year-old is a grown-arse teenager, not a little kid who really wouldnít know any better.

Singing along to a Rap Song though? I think that's a bit harsh, would be different if he'd used it as an insult towards someone

Singing along to a rap song ("song") shouldn't cost someone their future. Complete overreaction.

Ah, I see. If thatís the case (I didnít have time to check out the link) Iíll agree that there was no need. I thought he was actually using the other version of the n.-word as a racial slur.

If he straight up said it to someone or wrote the lyrics himself then ... it's fair enough.

If it's a video of him rapping/singing the lyrics of an actual song then it's just ridiculous .
