“I’m not politically correct.”



First press conference and he has already told a lie.

He’s really not PC in the traditional sense. He’s an outspoken nutjob extremist

No crosses allowed on campus. Tate hates Christianity.

You probably were expecting this to go differently. He didn't bring up race once. He answered questions about it from nervous white reporters 3 times (2 from the same guy).

On LSU's progress with racial justice:

"The community desires an inclusive environment where people feel wanted and respected and part of the community."

On the historic significance of the hire:

"What I would like you to say in X number of years is not that the guy was an African-American president, but he did a dad-gone good job and we're thankful he came."

On the renaming of buildings and removal of confederate monuments/potentially changing the name "Tigers" (reporter was fishing big time)

He didn't have all the history, all the facts to go into any details but an effort will be made to "historicize and contextualize" certain monuments after knowing all the history. No decisions have been made.

Ended with a very enthusiastic "Geaux Tigers!"

This was not the "it's about time, whitey" rally you were expecting.

He’s not an idiot. If he comes off politically radical he would be thrown out immediately.

And I hope his career lives up to what he said. We all really do
