Hated for being a white coach

Michael,
Beaumont, CA.

I was hated for being a white football coach in a nearly all black school. It didn’t matter that I had the players best interests at heart, if I had to speak to a player about his behavior I was only doing it because I was white and didn’t like black people. Many times I would have parents yell at me and call me names simply because they thought I was picking on their child. The funny thing was that they never voiced an opinion about what I may or may not have done. It was always about the fact that I was white and was only disciplining their child because he was black.
