BOONE, N.C. — A white males’s faculty tennis participant has been suspended after a black opponent tweeted that his on-court rival instructed him “no less than I do know my dad” throughout their weekend match.
Appalachian State College in North Carolina issued an announcement Monday saying Spencer Brown, who’s white, was suspended indefinitely after Sunday’s match with North Carolina A&T State College, a traditionally black faculty. Appalachian State apologized in its assertion, calling the conduct “derogatory and offensive.”

A college spokeswoman says there will be no further remark. A recording heard on a name to Appalachian State’s males’s tennis coach mentioned his quantity was disconnected.
