Because They're Black

Nolan Richardson is still at it. Now he's saying it in front of Congress.
Richardson voiced his support of Heath after testifying before a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on the lack of black coaches and athletic directors in collegiate sports.

He's chiming in on the rumor than Stan heath will be fired if his team doesn't win a bid to the NCAA Tournament. Richardson is insinuating that if Heath is fired it's because he is black.
"You’ve got to have at least five years to get your direction going the way you’d like it," Richardson said in an interview. He said university officials are less patient with black head coaches. "They’re not as tolerant of us as they are for a white coach."

When will it end? When will the African American community stop using the excuse "because we're black" as an excuse for failures or set backs. Hey! Wake Up! Start taking responsibility for your own life and decisions!
