LeGarrette Blount’s Punishment and Our Society

Well the college football season started not with a whimper but with a sucker punch.  A sucker punch received by one knuckle head who kept talking junk and delivered by an even bigger knuckle head who lost his head.

Oregon’s star running back LeGarrette Blount delivered a shot to the face of Boise State’s Byron Hout after the Broncos defeated Blount’s Ducks last night.

Here’s a vid of the incident in all it’s vainglory:

While some are asking what Blount’s punishment should be, others are calling for his expulsion from the team.

For sure, Mr. Blount will be penalized in some form, though I’m not at the present concerned with the nature of said penalty.

What does interest me a great deal is the potential claim by New York congressman Charles Rangel (below) that the inevitable punishment leveled at Blount is driven by “bias” and “prejudice”.

“It’s outrageous, egregious, preposterous.”

Sound loony?  Well it might not be as far-fetched as one might think:

UPDATE: BLOUNT HAS BEEN SUSPENDED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON. Your move Charlie… Here is some speculation you can work with:
