The national sports media has jumped on the Ron Brown story.
ESPN commentary, excerpt:
Discrimination is discrimination. It isn't a buffet line where Brown can pick and choose who can be protected from it. It is repugnant in all forms.
Sports Illustrated goes even further, excerpt:
It is my fervent hope that Brown finds some love in his heart and in his true religion, and shifts his cares from Omaha back to Lincoln, to his own locker room, where he’s bound to alienate some kid someday who might need him, if he hasn’t already. And if he’s happy just being a mouthpiece for division and discrimination, I hope he’ll forgive me if I begin to forget the “good coach” facet and see the bigot first. It’d be the Christian thing to do.
