The University of Arkansas – Fort Smith, is investigating allegations of racism after a former basketball player accused the head coach of singling out people with dreadlocks.

Former UAFS basketball player Tyler Williams claims head coach Jim Boone said he did not like his hair, and he would not recruit other players whose hair looked the same as Williams’.
