These morons will never coach football again. Unless they move to Texas. Or West Virginia. Or Alabama. Or if Mar-a-lago has a senior citizen flag football team.

Using a racist stereotype to comment on racists? Focus your feigned outrage on the POS coaches from Framingham that should never ever be in a position to coach anywhere.

Signed,

A former youth football coach with family that still coaches in Alabama.

don't use "Alabama" and "football" in the same sentence when talking about tolerance less than 48 hours after the State threatened the first amendment rights of protesters.

Foofoos get hurt?

He didn't say that all coaches in Alabama are racist - he just noted that such behavior is waved off and even tolerated there.

It helps to step out of your nickers to untwist them.

“As an online discussion continues, the probability of a comparison to Hitler or to Nazis President Trump approaches one.”

---
When sophomoric "humor" by youth football coaches in Framingham is somehow linked to President Trump, it's time for a Second Godwin's Law. I'm sure there are plenty of legitimate issues to link to President Trump. This isn't one of them.

My goal was to hint that those who escalate a debate into Adolf Hitler or Nazi comparisons may be thinking lazily, not adding clarity or wisdom, and contributing to the decay of an argument over time. -- Mike Godwin

Also zero mention of Trump in that reporting, quite a telling display of defensiveness no?

Every time you say someone is a racist, Fishy trumps in his pants a little.

the white supremacist intelligentsia of UHub has shown up on a post about racism to ostensibly do something other than demonstrate that they REALLY get upset when racism is called out.

From your other immoral and deceitful statements we know you like to go where decent people don't. But you, like you friend down south, keep outdoing yourself.

One of the coaches wrote, "Kill baby...." No need to finish that statement. You call that sophomoric.

Your implication that threats of murder are humor - there comes a point where a person's language is no longer deserving of any protection. Language that praises threats of violence is evidence of either a bona fide psychopath or evidence of a person suffering a mental illness that destroys his moral reasoning.

The article shows some of the tweets. They are very openly racist, homophobic and just horribly nasty.

People like that have no business working with kids. I feel sorry for the players who were coached by them, especially any who weren't white and straight.

Did you see what these morons do for a living?
Think their racist and homophobic views don’t effect that too?

Racism is alive and strong in America.

As American as apple pie.

Pretty depressing isn't it. Bad things happen and bad things go from bad to worse when good people don't vote.

Racism is a part of our country, it exists between many races unfortunately. But to try and make it seem like we are living in pre-civil war south is just sad, and divisive.

These a$$hole coaches deserve all of the ridicule they get, and they should never coach again. They are racist (and homophobic) losers. Period. They are not the mainstream as much as you seem (wish) to think.

Racism is as american as apple pie? You seriously need to seek help. Like right away.

Good people work hard every day to break down systemic inequities of the past, and people like you are just broadening the divide by spreading false narratives. Good luck with your divisive worldview.

Sad

systemic inequities of the past

since you're most definitely white, ask any person of color if the racism and discrimination they experience is "of the past".

you do realize you're spreading your own "false narrative" by attempting to claim that "racism is over" and people like these coaches aren't absolutely everywhere, including in government making policy, right?
