GET ME REWRITE: 5 UW-Eau Claire football players soil their commitment to a culture of respect



UW-Eau Claire suspends five football players for racist Snapchat conversation that used KKK image.  (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 11/20/2019)
Using the UW-Eau Claire student directory, the Journal Sentinel emailed all but one of the students named in the conversation. That one was not listed. None of the students responded. Head football coach Wesley Beschorner also did not respond to a request for an interview.
At this point, the Journal Sentinel is not publishing the players' names because the university has not identified who has been suspended and is under investigation. 
The incident comes as universities nationwide grapple with racist or discriminatory episodes.
This week, security was tightened at Syracuse University in New York after a white supremacist manifesto was posted on a campus forum. It was the latest in a string of racist and anti-Semitic episodes at the university.

If the latest Marquette poll can be believed, lots of older Millennials and younger Gen Xers in Wisconsin are running into the arms of Donald Trump


The good stuff is in the crosstabs.
