One week after Asia Todd said she was leaving Liberty University and its women’s basketball team over “racial insensitivities, a pair of Liberty football players is making a similar announcement.
After a tweet was sent from the school’s president Jerry Falwell Jr. that showed a person in Blackface and another dressed as a member of the Ku Klux Klan, Todd, a freshman, said she was entering the transfer portal.
Land, a safety, and Clark, a cornerback for Liberty’s football team, both expressed that they’re planning to do the same.
“Unfortunately, due to the racial insensitivity displayed by leadership at Liberty University, I have decided to enter my name into the transfer portal and no longer be a student-athlete at Liberty University,” he continued.
Like Todd and Land, Clark, a native of Richmond, Virginia, cited the school’s leadership as the cause for his departure.
