Why did Ray DePerry flip flop on Warriors?

In today's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article by Dale Hofmann, he has the following excerpt from a meeting with Marquette officals and Ray DePerry (President of the Great Lakes Inter-tribal Council).

"If it's some vicious dog, and the dog's name is Warrior, I have no problem," he said. "If it's a people thing, now we're talking about something different. . . . No people. No ethnic group. If it's Warriors, let's be creative and see what we can come up with."

A week later when Marquette officials met again with DePerry he had done a 180 and said nothing was acceptable. Why? DePerry was "not available for comment."
