During a recent game the Oklahoma based high school announcer Matt Rowan said the N-Word to the girls basketball team for kneeling during anthem. He has since apologized and claims it was his diabetes health condition that caused the outburst.

Moments like these are always sad and very disheartening, but the bright side is a person who was racist behind closed doors was exposed. Now the people at the school can’t fall victim to his hidden racism, because now it has been revealed.
At the moment there are no reports, which indicated Matt Rowan will be fired, but Norman will be using a different broadcasting system for stream according to multiple reports. This incident just goes to show the saying still holds true, “What’s done in the darkness will come to light”.
