OSU Takes Role In Anti-Discrimination Effort
Ohio State athletic administrators say they want to make OSUâ€™s sports team the most tolerant in the nation.
That sound comes from a new video by the Ohio State menâ€™s hockey team as part of the nationwide â€œYou Can Playâ€ campaign, which looks to root out discrimination in college sports.
Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith says athletics have long been too accepting of anti-gay sentiments.
â€œSo what we want to do is create a culture of acceptance, regardless of your personal interests or what you do. Itâ€™s OK.â€
Smith made his comments on All Sides with Ann Fisher Tuesday morning.
Leaders of the â€œYou Can Playâ€ campaign say they appreciate OSUâ€™s participation and hope itâ€™s a sign that major athletics programs are less accepting of discrimination.
