Former Coatesville Area School Superintendent Richard Como and former Director of Athletics and Activities Jim Donato have resigned and are facing criminal charges in regard to a highly racist stream of text messages between the two men.
One text read that all African Americans should share the surname “N*gger.” And if that was too complex a concept for the other to grasp, examples were set forth: “Leroy N*gger, Preacher N*gger, Night train N*gger, Clarence N*gger, Latoya N*gger, Thelma N*gger” and so on.
The disgusting exchange continued as the two men gave their opinions on interracial dating, and had a long, slur-filled conversation about the Miss America Pageant.
There were also derogatory comments against Jews and Arabs.
It is horrifying to think that these two high-ranking academic professionals, one in charge of a school district and the other directing sports for the area, directly touched the lives of so many students in their jurisdiction.
In terms of an IQ test, both men failed miserably. They used work issued phones to exchange their racist, misogynist and horrifically crude screeds.
