Syracuse soccer player Hanna Strong has been suspended indefinitely after she was caught on camera yelling racial and homophobic slurs at one of her classmates, according to the Daily Orange.  The video made the rounds from Instagram to BlackSportOnline.

[su_center_ad]In the footage, Strong realizes someone is filming the incident, and says, “Are you recording this? You f*ggot-*ss n*gger. It’s bullsh*t.”

After a response from the crowd, Strong adds, “Call me out on saying the n-word? I don’t give a sh*t.”

The Syracuse University Director of Athletics released a statement which reads:“We are aware of the offensive comments made last night by a member of the women’s soccer team. This type of intolerant and hurtful language, focused on both race and sexual orientation, is not part of the culture we seek to foster among our student-athletes and it has no place at Syracuse University.”

“Earlier today, this student-athlete was indefinitely suspended from the team by Coach Phil Wheddon. In addition I have been in contact with Senior Vice President and Dean of Student Affairs Rebecca Reed Kantrowitz. An active investigation is underway by the University’s Department of Public Safety and Title IX Office and their findings will be immediately reported to the Office of Students Rights and Responsibilities.

“Syracuse Athletics, as a strong and diverse part of this University community, has zero tolerance for these actions,” the statement concluded.

    It just rolls off her tongue like it comes totally natural to her.

    • Anomaly 100 September 7th, 2014 at 9:29 pm

      i was thinking the same thing. What’s up with the parents?

      • Mike Butkus Jr. September 7th, 2014 at 9:55 pm

        Parents yep that was her first schooling. A dollar the parents try to sue.
        what do you think the percentage is they’re registered republicans?

        • Anomaly 100 September 7th, 2014 at 10:02 pm

          The percentages are high, however, I was the only Democrat in my family and you’d never hear such racist rhetoric come out of our home. Ever. My mother would have been all up in our case. We were raised to respect everyone. But that was a different time. Now kids are off the hook and Republicans have moved further to the right.

  2. Tommy6860 September 7th, 2014 at 9:32 pm

    She should thrown our of school, period. She made it more than clear she has no care that someone recorded her hate.

  3. DaddyO_969 September 7th, 2014 at 9:34 pm

    Syracuse’ response is class, respectful and very timely.

  4. Eric Trommater September 7th, 2014 at 9:36 pm

    I am old enough to remember a time when the victims of such abuse from jocks would be the ones pulled into the office. They would be asked what they did to instigate the incident and told they needed to alter their behavior to try and fit in better. Things are better now than they used to be.

  5. burqa September 7th, 2014 at 9:41 pm

    One wonders whether Miss Strong has, by now, reconsidered her commitment to withhold her grunt. …

  6. juicyfruityyy September 7th, 2014 at 9:47 pm

    The video made the rounds from Instagram to BlackSportOnline.
    Now it is on Liberaland and twitter. LOL

    She seems to have so much hatred/anger. They didn’t say that she was suspended from school. Just from playing soccer. I think it should be both.

    • whatthe46 September 7th, 2014 at 10:05 pm

      i hope she will be as well. i never understand this “investigation” b.s. when it’s not something based on hearsay, it was fk’n reocrded.

  7. Ty Ellison September 7th, 2014 at 9:47 pm

    “Don’t record me saying this… don’t record me saying this… ” Lady, how about you just NOT SAY THAT?

    • whatthe46 September 7th, 2014 at 10:04 pm

      she’s a hateful little bitch.

      • Yersinia Pestis September 7th, 2014 at 10:32 pm

        mooc-helle or hillery?

        • Debora Elizabeth Hill September 8th, 2014 at 2:49 am

          Do you speak english? I can’t tell what language you are speaking here.

          • King Robert September 8th, 2014 at 8:56 am

            I think it’s supposed to be “moochelle or hillary”, just an educated guess something he’s not!

          • mea_mark September 8th, 2014 at 9:34 am

            I think it is speaking troll.

  8. Yersinia Pestis September 7th, 2014 at 10:03 pm

    I fail to see an issue

    • majii September 7th, 2014 at 10:39 pm

      Because there’s absolutely nothing wrong with use vile language to describe and demean others as long as you’re not the one being targeted, right?

      I think we should all be very careful about dismissing/excusing incidents like this because we never know when we might become the target of people like this young lady. If/when this occurs, we won’t be so easy to say it’s “no biggie.”

      It’s a shame that some of us think sh*t like this is OK, as long as it’s happening to someone else.

      • whatthe46 September 7th, 2014 at 11:11 pm

        i’ve seen him post elsewhere, he’s a big time racist. i’m not surprised by his statement. don’t feed it.

        • bpollen September 7th, 2014 at 11:36 pm

          His alias “Yersinia Pestis” is the name of the bacterium that causes the Plague. I’d say that name is a pretty powerful indication that interacting with him is bad for your health.

          • whatthe46 September 7th, 2014 at 11:40 pm


        • mea_mark September 8th, 2014 at 9:40 am

          Already banned. It is a racist troll trying to sneak back in with a new account. Probably thought the avatar of a black person would give them free pass, fail.

          • M D Reese September 8th, 2014 at 12:18 pm

            That’s how some white GOPTPers get elected–they fill their election material with pictures of black people and none of themselves.

    • M D Reese September 8th, 2014 at 12:17 pm

      Well, there’s lots of books and articles written about the subject, so you could read up on it.

  9. jasperjava September 7th, 2014 at 10:29 pm

    She will be welcomed at a number of other “universities”, like Liberty U., Regent U., Bob Jones…

  10. Foundryman September 7th, 2014 at 10:40 pm

    Looks like daddy’s gonna have to pay for his little princess’s final year since the scholarship just went poof…

    • whatthe46 September 7th, 2014 at 11:00 pm

      hopefully she’ll get kicked out completely.

  11. whatthe46 September 8th, 2014 at 2:13 am

    such a sad little female. she was raised this way. the way of ignorance and stupidity. the way of bigotry, racism and bias. so proud her parents must be. and look at where it has gotten her. unfortunately they are still whispering in her ear, somemore of the b.s. they spewed from the time she exited her bitch ass mother’s womb. and she’ll bare little children that come into this life w/o a clue of nastiness or hatered. but, she’ll be damned if they don’t learn it quickly. oh well, her sons or daughters will be just as miserable.

    • jhannon September 8th, 2014 at 5:27 pm

      Sounds like you have your own problems with anger and language.

      • whatthe46 September 8th, 2014 at 9:03 pm

        re-read. then re-read it again. if you still think i have anger issues then your interpretation of my being pissed off at a stupid ignorant twat is bassackwards. and i love my language by the way. wanna hear more?

        • whatthe46 September 9th, 2014 at 12:14 am

          FYI… i have every right to be angry. and you have not heard me angry.

  12. Debora Elizabeth Hill September 8th, 2014 at 2:48 am

    Drunk and stupid…or just too stupid to go to college?

  13. NW10 September 8th, 2014 at 7:39 am

    Apparently, this young lady forgot the saying “If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.”

  14. Roctuna September 8th, 2014 at 10:12 am

    Kicked out of school? No, too disproportionate. If I were her coach I’d lift her suspension after some training in civilized behavior, (especially concerning minorities) and an apology to the individual she was addressing, her teammates and the student body. It sounds like she’s in for some discipline from the student government as well. Some people can learn, especially the young.

    • whatthe46 September 8th, 2014 at 2:24 pm

      “Some people can learn, especially the young.” she’s not 12.

    • jhannon September 8th, 2014 at 5:27 pm

      Restorative justice is a lot better than just punishing someone, which creates more resentment for the offender and her friends.

  15. Candide Thirtythree September 8th, 2014 at 5:08 pm

    I heard trash like that the whole time I was growing up and somehow even as a small child I knew my family was trashy so I swore that my children would never endure that.

    The day my son started kindergarten, he and his best friend got off the bus and came in to have afternoon snacks and watch cartoons. I was so excited that I kept asking them what they did at school that day.

    They told me about their nice teacher and the yucky lunch and the awesome playground then they asked me what n*gg*r lover was, my blood turned to ice and my stomach knotted and I asked where they heard that and they said one of the big boys called them that on the bus, over and over. Neither child had ever heard that word, my son who is white and his best friend who is black sat looking at me with their little cherub faces, waiting for an answer.

    I still think about it, it still bothers me that it only took a few hours for some trashy parents to ruin what both me and my friend had managed to erase from the first 5 years of our children’s lives.

    I left home at 16 and put myself through college to distance myself from the trashiness and I had to struggle like crazy to do it and this ignorant girl from a trashy home got a scholarship because she can play a stupid sport…

    Well, no one ever said life was fair.

    • jhannon September 8th, 2014 at 5:26 pm

      Geez. I hope you were able to explain that some people are ignorant.

  16. Tammy Minton Haley September 8th, 2014 at 7:36 pm

    “call me out on saying the N-word? i don’t give a sh*t!”

    bet she gives a sh*t today…i bet she does give a big sh*t, today… 🙂

  17. Skydog2 September 8th, 2014 at 9:41 pm

    She needs education not harsh punishment.

    • whatthe46 September 8th, 2014 at 10:09 pm

      i think this is a good lesson. wanna bet she learned? besides she made it clear she didn’t care.

    • jasperjava September 9th, 2014 at 1:49 am

      She punished herself. What happens on the internet lasts forever. Potential employers will be able to see what kind of person she is with a simple Google search. She’ll have to change her name.

      Compared to that, whatever punishment she gets from the university, even expulsion, will be minor. Besides, if she hasn’t learned by now that it’s not OK to be a rotten bigoted racist, then education isn’t going to work. Maybe a good dose of punishment is what will get through her thick racist skull.

  18. labman57 September 8th, 2014 at 10:54 pm

    Uh, if you don’t want to be recorded making offensive, bigotry-laden comments in public … then stop making offensive, bigotry-laden comments in public.

    • whatthe46 September 9th, 2014 at 12:10 am

      or if you don’t want to be ostracised, stick with your welcomed ignorance in the comfort of your own ignorant laced family members.

  19. Marc Wesley September 9th, 2014 at 10:26 am

    It is useless to rashly punish this child. What she definitely needs is intense deprogramming, sensitivity training and education. The real source of the problem here is that the mentality that slung that racist and homophobic slur obviously, mistakenly believes that identifying someone as black or gay is an insult, on top of the fact that she uses the most insulting term for both demographics. Hanna, trust me, being either black or gay is not an evil, shameful thing. I am both. The funny and telling thing, though, is that I would wager handsomely that the recipient of this insult was neither black nor gay. 😉
