What you speak up about — or don't — says volumes.
This week, a barbaric, inhumane law went into effect in Texas that effectively bans all abortion and even worse, deputizes others with nothing better to do to turn people in they even suspect may take agency over their own health and well-being and receive a bounty for doing so.
It's nauseating even writing that sentence.
And if that weren't horrifying enough, the Texas legislature also passed a rather undemocratic bill this week to restrict voting, and as of now, basically anyone in the state can own a gun — no license or training required.
To this point, the NCAA has been silent on all of these things, as have, as best we can tell, the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL.
