I would like to see Athletics openly support diversity. The W rainbow logo on the video board. An announcement at the beginning of the game. And W rainbow logo decals on helmets, subject to choice by the player.

Decals might be out of the budget, but they could absolutely do the rest of the stuff.

It amazes me how much hate a human can have towards another, who they don’t know, over something that has zero effect on them. Very disturbing, and it happens all too often.

So Hawaii football has long since dropped the "Rainbow Warriors" and are now just the "Warriors".

Hey we got the block W add the rainbow and we're in business.


Yes, I know this post was trite. I'm trying to cope with the debacle that the 2018 season became.
