(Campus Reform) According to a St. Louis University School of Law professor, racism is permeating college football by “exploiting black bodies.”
Aaron Taylor, an assistant professor at the St. Louis University School of Law, recently alleged that one-sided football games perpetuate racist exploitation for the benefit of white people.
According to The Daily Caller, Taylor views so-called “guarantee games” as the product of small football team schools traveling to big football program schools to play in almost guaranteed losses because they get paid a hefty check. This gives major football schools an easy win while the losing team gets a nice payment to support their athletic programs.

Taylor wrote in the Chronicle of Higher Education, “They [guarantee games] only continue a history, literally and symbolically, of exploiting black bodies for the benefit of the wealthy and powerful while increasing the potential for legal liability among the colleges least able to afford it.”
