A’Miracal Phillips, Telah Black and Kennedy Finister — each of whom are black former Auburn gymnasts — all took to Instagram in recent days to detail their experiences with what they allege to be racism from their time on the team at Auburn. A’Miracal competed at Auburn from 2016-19, while Telah was on the team from 2016-18, and Kennedy was on the roster from 2013-18 but never competed. All three, in separate posts, describe being treated differently from the rest of their teammates due to their race.
