Carter, the mother of former Duke basketball star Wendell Carter, spoke on Monday in Washington, DC with the Knight Commission for Intercollegiate Athletics, saying the system was "disgusting," adding that she " NCAA as overseer of a system that is identical to "prison or slavery.
"If you remove all the bling and the bells and the sneakers and all that," she said (via ESPN), "You paid to have a child come to your school to do what you wanted to do for you , for free, and you made a lot of money when he did that, and you have all those rules that say he can not share any of it, the only other time that work is not paid, but someone does slavery is
"To be honest, it's disgusting."
Kylia Carter, who played basketball at Ole Miss, became emotional during a morning meeting in response to last month's report from a commission led by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, following an FBI investigation into corruption, Carter talked about how her grandmother and her mother talked about cotton fields in Mississippi had worked. Her son signed up for the NBA draft in June after spending a year with Duke, criticizing the NCAA for this "one and all" practice and saying it was "untrustworthy."
"That would be even harder to say the amount, but I can say it here," she told ESPN later. "It feels intentional, it feels like it was deliberately built that way, I can not remove that from my mind."
"Should the NCAA be removed, yes, because I do not trust it," said you. "You are untrustworthy because your intentions are clear – let's call this group in the middle, let's call it something else – let's introduce some real reforms and call it something else and get rid of the current status quo because it's on one Contract Bondage. "
Wendell Carter, 19, is expected to be a lottery next month, and his mother is called up Question:" Why should not her son be educated? " She said she wanted athletes who received a two-year certificate.

"If you pay him – you pay him an education – why do not you make sure he gets it, why do not you give him someone, so if he's a one-and-don'ts, why do not you automatically get him one assigned an academic advisor so that when he leaves, he has someone in his ear talking to him about the value of education he left behind? Wendell does not have that problem because I'll be like a jackhammer there, but all the others Children, the thing you pay them to come and do to your school, most of them never get it. "
She demanded more than just a paycheck and a portion of the profit for the players, noting that the problems are systemic.
"If you pay the players and keep the system as it is, it would still destroy it." It would just destroy them faster, "she said," that's not the answer. Do not get me wrong, it helps but not without enlightening them about this process. The part that confuses me … when you leave high school and prepare for college, and then go to the professionals, this whole process is not written down anywhere.

"It is an open question as to whether the NCAA can restore public confidence in their ability to handle college sports," said Arne Duncan, co-chair of the commission and former US Secretary of Education. "In order to do so, it needs to embrace far more far-reaching and far-reaching reforms than ever before."
