REAL PHOTO: Lesa Pamplin reveals her goddaughter, Rachel Richardson, is the BYU Duke volleyball player who got called racist word 'nigga' by white male during match

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Lesa Pamplin has revealed her goddaughter, Rachel Richardson, is the BYU Dukes volleyball player who got called racist word 'nigga' by white male during match. (Read More Here).

According to information, it was reported that BYU had banned the racist young guy from the match. BYU has also released a statement ands apology letter to Rachel Richardson. 

Saturday afternoon, the BYU Athletic Department released the following statement:

“All of God’s children deserve love and respect, and BYU Athletics is completely committed to leading out in abandoning attitudes and actions of prejudice of any kind and rooting out racism,” the statement read. “When a student-athlete or a fan comes to a BYU sporting event, we expect that they will be treated with love and respect and feel safe on our campus. It is for this reason BYU has banned a fan who was identified by Duke during last night’s volleyball match from all BYU athletic venues. Although this fan was sitting in BYU’s student section, this person is not a BYU student.

“To say we are extremely disheartened in the actions of a smaller number of fans in last night’s volleyball match in the Smith Fieldhouse between BYU and Duke is not strong enough language,” the statement continued. “We will not tolerate behavior of this kind. Specifically, the use of a racial slur at any of our athletic events is absolutely unacceptable and BYU Athletics holds a zero-tolerance approach to this behavior. We wholeheartedly apologize to Duke University and especially its student-athletes competing last night for what they experienced. We want BYU athletic events to provide a safe environment for all, and there is no place for behaviors like this in our venues.”

Lesa Pamplin wrote: "My Goddaughter is the only black starter for Dukes volleyball team. While playing yesterday, she was called a nigger every time she served. She was threatened by a white male that told her to watch her back going to the team bus. A police officer had to be put by their bench. Keep sharing & contact the athletic department. Her name is Rachel Richardson.

"Not one freaking adult did anything to protect her. I’m looking at you @BYU. You allowed this racist behavior to continue without intervening. Apologizing to her parents after the fact is not enough. She will soon be sharing her story."
