Coach Suspended After Calling Whitney Houston a 'Dumb N-Word'
Chicago man degraded the singer on his Facebook page.
A youth baseball coach and business owner in Chicago has been suspended from his coaching duties after a racist rant against Whitney Houston.
John Kelly called dead singer Whitney Houston a "Dumb N-Word" on his Facebook page.
'I’m so sick of reading about this dumb stupid N - - - - - Whitney Houston. 'She's the dumb ass that decided to do drugs n kill herself stay with that woman beater..she blew more $$ up her nose than most of ye will make in yer lifetime...'There are kids dying real fathers n mothers fighting for their lives...grow up ye dumb assess...think she'd give a flying f--- about u???? Just saying.'

After he was caught putting up the post, Kelly retracted his statement saying he is not a racist and that he has many black friends.
Of course, Kelly goes ahead and uses the "black friends" defense to try to make people believe he is not a racist.
Kelly said his Facebook page is restricted to friends and family only and a black former player’s mother saw the comment and re-posted it on her Facebook page and on the league’s page.
'I don’t need this drama in my life. It’s going to affect me hugely, and my business,' said Kelly.
Despite what you may think of Whitney and her decisions, you can criticize the woman without degrading her with racism. This man deserves all the negative publicity that is coming his way.
