Mo’ne Davis Forgives Man Who Doesn’t Deserve Her Forgiveness

Mo’ne Davis asks college to reinstate baseball player who called her a ‘sl*t’

Only after he got called on his mess—and, no doubt, in a desperate bid to keep from getting kicked off his team and out of school—did Casselberry apologize, writing: “An example that one stupid tweet can ruin someone’s life and I couldn’t be more sorry about my actions last night. I please ask you to forgive me and truly understand that I am in no way shape or form a sexist and I am a huge fan of Mo’ne. She was quite an inspiration.”

Obviously not inspiration enough, though, for Casselberry to refrain from calling a 13-year-old Black girl disgusting, derogatory names on social media. But this fits, doesn’t it? It’s right up there with the Onion “jokingly” calling child star Quvenzhané Wallis a “cunt” during its live Twitter coverage of the 2013 Academy Awards, and rivals the virtual White racist Twitter meltdown when folk got a gander that the very adorable and very Black Amandla Stenberg starred as Rue in The Hunger Games. Social media has made it quite easy for the most disgusting amongst us to make clear that they absolutely abhor human life if it comes wrapped in skin that isn’t White like theirs or it has a vagina attached to it. Bloomsburg got it right when it told Casselberry loudly and clearly that he needs to take that mess somewhere else—preferably far away from their campus. Let him sort out how to talk about women and girls and Black folk somewhere else.
