When Dungy faced Lovie Smith he was asked this or a similiar question and he replied to the effect that it was more important he and Lovie were Christians than African-Americans.
I consider myself 'well-informed' yet, I didn't read/hear/see this comment. One wonders why?
And Lovie clearly forgot his faith when he supported Obama. I brought this up to a black friend- what’s more important to you, voting for a man who shares your faith and values, or a man who shares your race. He was stunned- and silent.
And when I heard him make that comment, I became a Dungy fan for life (despite some of his recent questionable statements)
