A white Texas school superintendent who posted online that “You can’t count on a black quarterback,” in reference to Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, has resigned.
Superintendent Lynn Redden on Texans' Deshaun Watson: You Can't Count on a Black QB https://t.co/zKhEIQMRLq

In a letter Saturday to the Onalaska Independent School District board, Lynn Redden said his comment posted earlier in the week on the Houston Chronicle’s Facebook page was “wrong and inappropriate.”
He also apologized to Watson, who is black, and pointed out that the quarterback could have criticized him for his comment but instead “chose peace and positivity.”
Redden had criticized Watson for letting the clock run down before completing a pass in a 20-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
Let's be very clear here:
1) his name is Lynn Redden and this guy is a racist piece of shit who doesn't know football
2) the school board MADE him "resign", instead of firing his dusty ass
3) Watson is a wolf and doesn't worry about the opinion of sheephttps://t.co/0ldOHfyOpf
