brandon davies cheers on teamUTAH – Recently BYU suspended Black player, Brandon Davies for having sex with his girlfriend. Sports website, Deadspin has an expose on BYU ‘s “Honor Code,” which prohibits students from having sex or drinking alcohol and how its is selectively used on Black athletes, while ignoring white students who break the honor code.

Since 1993, according to our research, at least 70 athletes have been suspended, dismissed, put on probation, or forced to withdraw from their teams or the school after running afoul of the honor code. Fifty-four of them, or nearly 80 percent, are minorities. Forty-one, or almost 60 percent, are black men.

Yet a majority of the honor code violations involve black athletes. Do these numbers mean these athletes “sin” more than everyone else? Hardly. Several former BYU football players told us that their white teammates routinely broke the honor code and got away with it, either because they didn’t get caught or because their violations were covered up.
