University in Ohio Pays Former Football Player $712,000 to Settle Concussion Lawsuit 

Bowling Green State University will pay former football player Cody Silk $712,000 to settle Silk's claims that coaches and medical staff forced him to continue practicing even after he reported concussive symptoms that have led to permanent brain injury.

According to the Associated Press, Silk, an offensive lineman from Sterling Heights, Mich., suffered three concussions during a practice in the fall of 2010.

In the days that followed, Silk claimed he could not remember his name or where he had parked his car, AP reports. Silk said that during following practices, he suffered severe head pain and reported this to the coaching and medical staff, but was never given proper treatment.  

Bowling Green State said in a statement viewed by AP that Silk signed a liability release and assumed the risk when he decided to play for the school. The university also said that it did nothing to injure the former player and settled the lawsuit because it didn't want to risk going to trial. The settlement agreement also prevents Silk from bringing further legal action against the school.

Silk stopped playing football in 2010 and said he dropped out of school because of the concussive symptoms. In his lawsuit, he said that he continues to suffer from depression, migraine headaches, anxiety and difficulty sleeping, AP reports.

Barack/Michelle just did the blackest thing ever! And so on, and so on. The problem is that the only way something could truly be the blackest thing ever is if said thing were initially so white, so nonblack and so ultimately devoid of any color that, by default, adding people of color made it the blackest thing ever.
