(KCPW News) While Brigham Young University earned praise from some sports commentators for sticking to its values after dismissing athlete Brandon Davies from the basketball team for an honor code violation, a new article on the sports website Deadspin examines what it calls “The Truth About Race, Religion, And The Honor Code At BYU.” It’s co-authored by Darron Smith, a former BYU instructor who has often examined the relationship between the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and African Americans. KCPW’s Jeff Robinson asked Smith what the black athletes who shared their opinions in the article had to say.
