ABSTRACT
The article discusses an incident between Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin, both of the Miami Dolphins football team, in which Incognito was suspended for harassing and bullying Martin through voice mails and social media. Teammates of Incognito do not feel that he is a racist even though he used the N-word many times towards Martin. The author suggests that this behavior is more common as races come together culturally in America.
