Controversy surrounds Illinois St. coach over use of n-word; Giannis Antetokuonmpo struggles to find his game

Illinois State coach’s response to racism fuels itRyan Pedon, the head coach of Illinois State men’s basketball, got involved in an altercation with the Norfolk State head coach during a home game on Saturday. The situation was not even related to his team, as the Norfolk State coach was not speaking in the direction of Pedon’s team at all. This unprovoked interference is a prime example of why racism continues to thrive in our country. The only way to address and combat racism is to stop allowing it to fester in situations where it does not belong. This is something everyone should pay attention to.
