Everybody is afraid to speak in the woke era.
Saying the wrong thing could get you “canceled” at any time.
And a high school athlete had his college scholarship pulled for a jaw-dropping reason.
Cancel culture has completely run amok.
The people who look to “cancel” others are perfectly happy seeing someone’s life destroyed.
And high school quarterback Marcus Stokes won’t get a chance to play at his dream school because of a three-second video clip.
Stokes, who is white, said the N-word while rapping along to a song, and the University of Florida pulled his scholarship offer.
Stokes said, “Welcome back, n****” in video and uploaded it to social media.
After the clip went viral, Florida rescinded its scholarship offer.
Stokes wrote in an apology message, “I was in my car listening to rap music, rapping along to the words and posted a video of it on social media. I deeply apologize for the words in the song that I chose to say. It was hurtful and offensive to many people, and I regret that. I fully accept the consequences for my actions, and I respect the University of Florida’s decision to withdraw my scholarship offer to play football. My intention was never to hurt anybody and I recognize that even when going along with a song, my words still carry a lot of weight. I will strive to be better and to become the best version of myself both on and off the field. I know that learning from my mistakes is a first important step.”

Entertainment media has created a bizarre world where profane music gets pushed on the masses, and people can get in trouble for repeating the lyrics, or for criticizing the profanity.
High school cheerleader Mimi Groves had something similar happen to her.
She lost her spot at the University of Tennessee after a classmate with a grudge posted a video of Groves doing what Stokes did.
Stokes played at Nease High where Florida Gator legend Tim Tebow played high school football.
Now Stokes won’t get a chance to follow in his footsteps.
The guardians of the culture have created a confusing mess for the public, and there are always people on the prowl for dirt to sling and someone who makes a mistake.
