Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin 'proud' school canceled white nationalist rally

21 Août 2017

One was supposed to take place on Texas A&M's campus on September 11, but that event was canceled by school administration, citing a "major security risk".

"I'm really proud of [the school's decision]", Sumlin said, via ESPN.

At the very end of his remarks, Sumlin was asked about Texas A&M's decision to cancel a white nationalist rally that was scheduled for September 11.

"I'm was thankful and very, very proud of Chancellor [John] Sharp and our president to put an end to it", said Sullivan, who called the "White Lives Matter" rally a "major security risk".

Pyongyang tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles last month. "Peace is in South Korea's national interest". Of course, the same obviously applies to propaganda and rhetoric coming out of North Korea .

"[This is a time] when leadership comes to the front, and our leadership did that", Sumlin added.

Texas A&M canceled the "White Lives Matter" rally on Monday, citing a "major security risk". We've talked about that as a team, too, and our appreciation for our leadership to step in in this situation.

White nationalist leader Richard Spencer, who was met by hundreds of protesters when he spoke at Texas A&M in December, was reportedly invited to attend Wiginton's event. Violence ensued and a vehicle crashed into the counterprotesters at one point, killing Heather Heyer and injuring 19 more. "It's big for the players, big for our coaching staff - it's big for everybody".
