I know a few of these so called white, privileged distance guys on the team. They are honorable, extremely hard working young men. None of them are rich.
Just think what it takes to make it at G'town distance. You have to devote years of your life running 80 - 100 mpw while living a monk-like existence. Daddy can't buy that. You have to literally earn it.
When you think about it, it makes no sense to even try. They are literally sacrificing their time and energy just to see what they can accomplish with no monetary gain whatsoever. Privileged? I don't think so.
One of them suffered extremely difficult injuries (much worse than the accuser) and is just now working his way back to elite status. Is he blaming the coaches for his injuries? No. He's taking responsibility for his results. As far as I'm concerned, no matter his 8K or 10K times, he's already won at the game called life.
I would put any of these young men up against the two accusers with respect to integrity and hard work any day.
It truly sickens me what we've become as a society when some lazy _ss person can use race as an excuse and get an innocent man fired. Congratulations. Good luck in life. You'll need it.
