We've been playing HoCo for six years, and I have never heard anything racist said in the stands, and my son has never heard anything on the field. So "this stuff happens a lot" seems exaggerated.

It's because the libs in the DC area want to see racism everywhere. When some parent remarks a black kid is fast, the parents (white or black) immediately respond by thinking it's some racist remark rather than a compliment. That same logic never holds when it is reversed. If you want to be offended, you will be offended.

Never said my sons were black.

To the PP: read that I said nothing has happened to us in the HoCo league and I actually defended the league. It plays in a very diverse area. But me claiming "Stuff happens a lot"... it's true. Happening just once should be considered a lot yes? Well it's happened more than once. Just can't get reported because nothing can be done about it unless an official witnesses. Otherwise it's not believed, you are the perfect example thank you!

The solution for now are my sons' loyal teammates.

About time. All of society should be on a plan. And of course all sports should be included , not just lacrosse.

You are exactly what the pp was referring to. White or black, you are offended by everything and report nothing because it won't rise to the level of a real issue.

Fair to what or whom? You are the perfect example of bowing to key words without even seeing what it entails. I don't need the HoCo lacrosse league dictating or teaching my kids. I need them to train refs on how to spot personal fouls and run a great league, which they do. If HoCo wants to ruin a good thing they should follow the CYO's example on how they ruined their athletic programs.

Unfortunately, race has been politicized so much in the last 11 months that in the rare case where racism actually happens, it’s hard to get non political people to believe you. Boy who cried wolf.

I think the PP was sarcastic. I can't imagine HoCo would implement a D&I program. But if they did, what would it say?

Erm, actually, no. "Once" is the very definition of "not a lot". It's only one step up from "never".

Like most discussions of race in the past year, this has devolved into nonsense over nothing. Unless somebody wants to explain the new HoCo Diversity and Inclusion policy, let's go back to talking about lacrosse.

In my opinion, the new policy should promote diversity and inclusion of lacrosse talent. The existence of different divisions, based on skill level, is a clearly non-inclusive policy. The "Elite" teams are obviously elitist, which is most unjust. Not being on an Elite team inflicts a crippling blow on the self-esteem of other players, who feel alienated, and merely perpetuates the privilege of those who have had good coaching in the past.

Therefore, before the beginning of the season, HoCo will assess the skill level of every potential player, and will assign players to teams while ensuring that each team contains an equal number of players from every skill level (the former Elite, AAA, AA, A, and B levels). The result will be a glorious display of diversity, inclusion, equity, and athletic justice! Furthermore, weaker players will be greatly inspired by playing on teams with stronger players, and will rapidly improve their athletic skills due to exposure to the example of stronger players.

What decent person could possibly oppose a system based on equity and athletic justice?

Well said !! Now people are really getting it. This could be the start of something big for ALL sports at ALL levels, and who would have thought , it all started here !
