Nebraska Coach Says It Would Be an Honor to be Fired for Anti-gay Remarks

Nebraska Cornhuskers assistant coach Ron Brown has come under fire for publicly expressing sentiments some say are anti-gay, but he insists he'll continue to speak out against homosexuality.

In March, Brown, 55, testified against an Omaha anti-discrimination ordinance that extended protections to gay and transgender people, which prompted Barbara Baier of the Lincoln Board of Education to write to administrators at University of Nebraska–Lincoln to request the assistant coach's firing...

8. Ron Brown is everyone that ever hated black people just because they were black.

Jackie Robinson vs Ron Brown

Jackie Robinson


Jack Roosevelt "Jackie" Robinson (January 31, 1919 – October 24, 1972)....As the first black man to play in the major leagues since the 1880s, he was instrumental in bringing an end to racial segregation in professional baseball, which had relegated black players to the Negro leagues for six decades. The example of his character and unquestionable talent challenged the traditional basis of segregation, which then marked many other aspects of American life, and contributed significantly to the Civil Rights Movement.

Ron Brown

The difference between a decent, brave person, and a weak, bigoted, hateful asshole.

"Robinson was the target of racial epithets and flying cleats, of hate letters and death threats, of pitchers throwing at his head and legs, and catchers spitting on his shoes."
http://espn.go.com/sportscentury/features/00016431.html

Robinson was not just about baseball. He was about equality, about decency, about morality, about injustice, about ending a wrong with a right after more than 60 years of America and Americans in and out of the game suggesting a kid born with a black skin could not be a big leaguer.
