black female michigan high school star football kicker mocked in racist instagram post

October 27, 2016

Horrifyingly, but unsurprisingly at this point, black female star athlete Ashton Brooks, from Michigan, was the victim of a racist social media post depicting her as a gorilla. As reported by The Grio, a white, former student of the same school district was attending one a game that Brooks was playing in when she posed with a man in a gorilla suit for an Instagram post to spew an embarrassing display of racism: “got a pic with dows kicker ;)”. Clever.

Jealous or threatened of Brooks’ talents and achievements, on both the football and soccer fields, as the first girl on her football team, #1 in her conference, and the recipient of a partial scholarship to Northwood University—this young lady, apparently, could help but show her ass.

Congrats on the achievements, Ashton!
