Prof. Pens Controversial Chapter About Tom Brady

 A University of Rhode Island professor's writings about New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady are getting attention. In a chapter of a newly-published book called The Palgrave Handbook of Masculinity and Sport, URI professor Kyle Kusz says Brady has gained popularity due to the latest wave of white rage and white supremacy since the Obama presidency. Kusz compared an Under Armour advertisement done by Brady to a Nazi propaganda film. The University released a statement in response to the media attention the chapter has gotten, saying the university is bound by the First Amendment.
