UI officials have received complaints from across campus and throughout the state about racial epithets uttered by some Vandal fans during the game. Offensive terms for Hispanics and illegal immigrants reportedly were shouted at one or more opposing players, including the term “dirty Sanchez,” which apparently was directed at BSU forward Mark Sanchez. Some might not find the term offensive or understand its meaning. That doesn’t matter to Sanchez, to the other people of Hispanic heritage in the stands or watching on television, or to the hundreds of parents whose children asked them what it meant when the game was over/Doug Bauer, Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here.
Question: Is there something other fans or UI officials could have done to stop the inappropriate behavior at the UI/Boise State basketball game?
