Baseball Coach John Kelly Suspended for Calling Whitney Houston a “N*gger” on Facebook


Unless you are your own boss, just remember anything that you say on any social media site can be used against you.  My personal feelings is what you say in your own time, in the privacy of your own home shouldn’t have any effect on your workplace, but unforunately that isn’t the case.

John Kelly had some strong feelings about Whitney Houston and he let those feelings be known on Facebook.  Here is what he had to say.

“I’m so sick if 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.”

Kelly didn’t back down from comments except for calling Houston a nigger.  He claims he didn’t remember writing that word (I know that doesn’t make any sense) and then said this.

Kelly wishes you to rest assured that he’s no racist. Racism was, he told the Sun Times, “the farthest thing from (his) mind” and he has “some amazing friends who are black.”

Nice to know he has some “amazing black friends”.

Nothing wrong with his opinion, there are many who share the same thoughts about Whitney Houston and that were upset the Mayor of New Jersey put the flags at half staff for her.

But when you decide to slander, slander intelligently.  This isn’t the first time Kelly has called someone a nigger, if you truly are aware of the word it doesn’t just randomly come out on Facebook.

It is clear he separates his “amazing black friends” from “niggers”, not something that is uncommon in the White Community.   The lesson here is before you hit send on that Tweet or Facebook status think about possible ramifications it can have long term regardless if the opinion you put out there is valid or not.
