That's complete and utter bullshit. The Chiefs made their name drafting black players from black schools in the 1960s. Sayers was from Nebraska and played at KU. Was Chicago a racism island? Hardly! For Sayers it was about playing in the established league rather than an upstart.
Buck Buchanan, Willie Lanier, Bobby Bell, Curly Culp, Otis Taylor... among others played here and loved it. In fact, most of them made KC their home and are still active in the community.
