Football Coach Resigns After Yelling N-Word and White Power – Video
"I'm not a racist", is one of the first things John Hoskins said in his interview after he lost his job. John is the ex assistant high school football coach in Wake County. He resigned after a video of him in a bar yelling "white power and the n- word". He claims the black student athletes he coaches peer pressure him into using the n-word. I wish I could say #judgefreezone but..... I can't but I can give a little advise I don't care what your black friends say or how many black people you know saying the n- word and posting it to social media is never a good idea. Check out all the excuses the coach used to justify him using the n-word at one point he even said he only said it to make the kids smile smh.
Do you think it was ok for him to use the N-word in the way he did? Let us know how you feel in the comments...
KNIGHTDALE, N.C. (WTVD) -- An assistant high school football coach in Wake County is out of a job after a video showing him making racist remarks was posted to Instagram.
"15 seconds of fame in the wrong way. I've ruined the last 12 years of my career," John Hoskins told ABC11 exclusively.
He said it happened one fun night at the bar. The 32-year-old coach at Knightdale High School was celebrating the team's win against Corinth Holders High, when he shouted: "White power, Knightdale. I still love you, N-----"
"Just to set the record, I'm not racist," Hoskins told ABC11 on Tuesday. "I don't mean it in a negative way."
Hoskins said he was caught up in a celebratory moment with friends both black and white.
He said through the years, his friends who are black have said it was OK for him to use the n-word.
"I guess I've been around them for so long. We're friends. I mean nothing from it," he said. "The word can be used in multiple ways. They treat me as any of their own friends."
Hoskins deleted the video but not before someone reported it and shared it with school administrators.
