Did Rachel Richardson lie?

Duke player cries racism.

PROVO, Utah — NCAA officials are under fire after Duke women’s volleyball player Rachel Richardson, a black sophomore, claimed she was called the N-word multiple times during Friday’s match against Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. To make matters worse, school officials took their sweet time handling the matter. Then, instead of kicking people out, a police officer was placed between Duke’s bench and the student section. A white dude was eventually singled out by players and coaches; prompting BYU administrators to ban him from athletic events. Only problem is law enforcement officials don’t believe the heckler spewed any racial slurs at all. Now people are wondering if Rachel pulled a Jussie Smollett. “When we watched the video, we did not observe that behavior from him,” BYU police Lt. George Besendorfter told the Salt Lake Tribune.

BYU associate athletic director Jon McBride echoed a homogeneous sentiment.

“Various BYU Athletics employees have been reviewing video from BYU TV and other cameras in the facility that the volleyball team has access to for film review,” McBride said. “However, we have been unable to find any evidence of that person using slurs in the match.” Rachel’s godmother, Lesa Pamplin, begged to differ. She said her goddaughter was called a nigger “every time she served.” She also said Rachel “was threatened by a white male that told her to watch her back going to the team bus.”

Rachel, 19, doubled down on her accusation with the following statement: “The slurs and comments grew into threats which caused us to feel unsafe. Both the officials and BYU coaching staff were made aware of the incident during the game, but failed to take the necessary steps to stop the unacceptable behavior and create a safe environment. As a result, my teammates and I had to struggle just to get through the rest of the game, instead of just being able to focus on our playing so that we could compete at the highest level possible. They also failed to adequately address the situation immediately following the game when it was brought to their attention again. No athlete, regardless of their race, should ever be subject to such hostile conditions.”

Do you think Rachel is full of sh*t?

If so, should she be kicked off the team?

Watch Rachel tell her side of the story.

  1. Aaaaaaaaand after investigating and reviewing hours of tape they found absolutely 0 evidence of this happening. But yeah, run a race baiting story because some girl wanted to get her name out there. Divisive lying media pricks.

  2. Hoax. The Duke player should be kicked off of the team, and her godmother banned from all Duke events.

  3. Issue an apology. Unsurprisingly this has been confirmed to be a hoax. This Duke volleyball player should be condemned for spreading this lie

  4. B.s Story…These race hustlers just want to start a race war along with that 🥔 people call the president…

  5. Funny how ABC and ESPN are completely ignoring the Aqib Talib story where a BLACK MAN was murdered at a pee wee football game!!!!! I front of his son and wife!!! Why are they ignoring it you ask?? Well it’s because the murderer is ALSO A BLACK MAN!!!!!! im so sick of these WOKE companies ignoring anything that might make blacks look bad.

  6. Jussie Smollet. Demoncratic Manufactured Fake Racism Like Lebron James garage sprayed with the N word. GTFOH

  7. How does this bullshit make the news? There’s more important things going on than some heckling in the crowd. $200 says this player is using that black privilege to cry racism. People of all colors deal with racism from someone who’s a different color at some point in life. At some point you gotta get over your skin color.

  8. Never happened. They investigated and there is no evidence he said anything racial. Campus security said as such. But they banned him anyway. This is such bullshit

  9. RETRACT THE DAMN STORY AND STOP JUST BELIEVING RACE HOAX LIARS. NO RACISM GOLD HERE, JUST FOOLS GOLD.

  10. I find it extremely hard to believe that any racist slur was used in that public of a setting. Someone had to have videos of this. Still waiting for concrete proof of this incident.

  11. Turns out there’s no witnesses, and no video or audio evidence. What a disgrace.

  12. Jussie Smollet, Bubba “Smollet” Wallace, and now Rachel “Smollet-Wallace” Richardson.

    The holy trinity of hate crime hoax baiters.

  13. What’s with Duke. The false allegations against the Duke Lacrosse players. Now apparently this too. Every entity embraced the false allegations & ran with it. When the music stopped, they all walked away from their chairs. There really weren’t any repercussions then, & likely not now either. The experience matters & not the truth. Yep, that’s the way it is.

  14. Im sure she never says the word nigger in her daily conversations either 🙄

  15. Video shows the guy wasn’t in the section and when she was serving he was busy on his phone or out of his seat. I wish BYU did t condemn the guy immediately. Some BYU students are known to tell on people for honor code violations, someone would’ve told on him with the text line signs to report people that are out of line. If no one stood up to him verbally, they would’ve texted the hotline or told security. Most BYU people go on missions, and serve in countries that people will never visit or have heard of and they love the people they meet and the cultures and learn the Language. They are a lot more exposed to international cultures than many people in the U.S. we have a huge Polynesian and Hispanic membership in the US and world. There are a lot of missionaries in Africa too and they are loved and viewed as fellow brothers
    And sisters and Are no different in the eyes of God. We believe we all come from him and no one is better than the other. I was a missionary in the Dominican Republic and have many Dominican and Haitian friends.Many missionaries bring back their culture and start restaurants featuring food from those countries, or they go in with people who have moved to Utah. Most BYU fans don’t swear at all, let alone use racial slurs. I never heard it growing up. The story is most likely BS.

  16. When Jussie Smollett was able to avoid jail time in a Liberal Blue state like Illinois for a crime that he was clearly guilty of… and the Liberals let him walk… it was only a matter of time before it was to happen again. Apparently with Liberals… bad deeds DO go unpunished… unless you’re a FREE THINKING PERSON, or someone right of Center and even a Libertarian.

  17. Black BYU basketball players were sitting right next to the student section. No reactions from them. This didn’t happen.

  18. oh yeah I’m gonna believe a white person went to a Basketball game and yelled n*gger in a stadium full of black folks. I’m calling bullshit!

  19. Duke should suspend the liar for the rest of the season. She was there representing Duke and created a false racial incident for attention. Duke needs to issue an apology to BYU and their fans and also to Duke fans for embarrassing them.

  20. What’s up with Duke? Didn’t they have the LaCrosse scandal that turned out to be fake?

  21. Oh, and guess what! This chick’s wildly racist godmother is running for political office. Hmmmm, what a way to bring attention to and gain sympathy votes for a crappy person running for office than to pull a Juicy Smollet.👎👎👎🤡🤡

  22. Even though there is ZERO evidence in a crowd of 5,000 people that this even happened, you irresponsible race hustlers are just gonna roll with the narrative aren’t ya?

  23. I wonder if this was motivated by the new Emit Till movie coming out and the white lady that lied and never got brought up on charges for his murder?

  24. Lmao sounds like the blue devils should have been concerned with the white ones, in the stands! 😂

  25. The Godmother is running for political office. There is your motive.

  26. Her godmother is campaigning for a judges seat, her old man works for the government, and her pops is fraternity brothers with Roland S. Martin. Nuff said.

  27. The God mother needs to look around at how many times black women have played the race card??? Fake hair..fake nails..fake eyelashes..the list never ends

  28. This is a demonstration why the idea of “White Privilege” is such a joke. If a white player said this while playing at a HBCU they would be labeled a racist and lose their scholarship. Richardson makes up a story and people like self loathing soy boy Rick Strom elevates her to Rosa Parks status.

  29. Being a racist is heinous. Being accused of being a racist or committing a racist act is heinous. Perpetuating a false accusation is heinous. Everyone involved should come clean. Apologize! It’s hatred plain and simple!! She’ll be forever remembered for a lie. She must feel like she’s backed in a corner…no where to turn. But there is a way out…admit it, apologize, state clearly that false accusations must not be tolerated!!

  30. Her godmother is a lawyer in Ft Worth Texas. Running for office as a Democrat. Another lying Democrat looking for a government job.

  31. OK…so it’s been proven a hoax….everyone should call and email the Duke University President and demand the Richardson be suspended and the athletic director, Holmoe be terminated.
