Texas HS Official Sorry For Racist Deshaun Watson Facebook Slander

The Black QB stereotype just will not die, and that’s because there comes kneejerk bigotry is hardwired into certain segments of America.
 
On Monday, Onalaska Independent School District superintendent Lynn Redden reportedly wished he never made comments on a Chrom.com Facebook post about Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson following the Texans’ 20-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

That may have been the most inept quarterback decision Ive seen in the NFL. When you need precision decision making you cant count on a black quarterback, he wrote, referring to Watson holding the ball for a lengthy amount of time as the clock continued to tick and time eventually expired.
Redden, who has not faced consequences for his comments, explaining that he mistook that he was commenting to a friend and didn’t know it was public.

Experts Have A History Of Bad Draft Evaluations For Black QBs

Talent evaluation isn’t always about looking at a particular player’s attributes and taking an informed, objective decision about how a player’s relative gifts and weaknesses translate within a particular set of circumstances. Every year, time and time again, we find that individuals who are paid a top-dollar salary by the major cable news networks fail miserably at doing what they’re supposedly the masters at doing.

I totally regret it, he told the outlet, adding that he did not intend for the comment to come across as racist, but understands how it may have been seen that way.

The regret for Lynn is likely that he was caught, not that he said it. Why regret a statement that is a true measure of one’s true feelings? When it reveals something about them that they’d rather the world didn’t know. A Facebook post talking about “inept” black quarterbacks is one thing, but what other ways have his racial biases bled into decision making at his job?  

Russell Wilson became the second black quarterback to lead his team to a Super Bowl victory in 2013 when he did so for the Seattle Seahawks. His feat came after Doug Williams did the same for the Washington Redskins in 1988. However, Donovan McNabb and Cam Newton have led teams to the Super Bowl as well.

 It’s cultural when people say things of these sorts of things. That culture still exists in the NFL as well.

A recent study by The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport (TIDES) at the University of Central Florida also found that the number of black quarterbacks in the NFL increased just one percent, from 18% to 19%, over a 14-year span.
