I attended ISU from 71 to 75...lived in Ames for 3 years after. A lot of people contributed to building the new stadium...and naming rights reflected a lot of push and pull because of money..it had nothing to do with race..rather, who had the deepest pocket $$$. Also, you really have to ignore how progressive ISU was at that time to come up with some "racism" charge. Historically, you might start with George Washington Carver just to see how much ISU was ahead of the curve for equal rights. Just 'sayin.'
