Default Re: Jackson accuses Utah fans of racial slurs

This is something that the Delta Center is rather infamous for IIRC. Ten or twenty years ago, players would periodically accuse a Jazz fan of using racial slurs, and accuse the management there of not doing anything about it. That was one of the reasons the Jazz had such a tough time recruiting black players back in the day.

Is SLC racist? I haven't been there, and I don't think this is necessarily evidence for it. But this is the culture that Larry Miller allowed to grow at his team's arena back in the day, so it wouldn't be much of a surprise to see it happen again now that the team is having some success.
