Shirt read: “Black is the new Brown”
Austin — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; a controversial T-shirt featuring University of Texas' new football coach Charlie Strong was dubbed “ugly” and “racist” Tuesday by the school's president, Bill Powers.
“Black is the new Brown,” read the burnt-orange-colored shirt recently pulled down by the online store Etsy. The $19.99 T-shirt featured a photo of Strong, the school's first black head coach, who replaced longtime coach Mack Brown.
