What does this even mean?

This is quite possibly one of the most offensive headlines I have ever seen.

When I was in High School, I went over one of my friends house who happened to be white and his father was there. My friend and I were cool, we never talk about black and white things, we were just friends. So, I am over his house and his father is watching the news. Some black guy got arrested and his father starts dropping “N-Bombs”.

I was in shocked because I was sitting right there, I told my friend I was uncomfortable and he said something that I’ll never forget.

“Rob, you are different black guy, not like those N*ggers”

Meaning that some white people are cool with a certain type of black person, as if we still aren’t all black and that suppose to make their prejudice, stereotypes and racism ok.

The Dallas Morning News tries to blame Lou Holtz, but it was their headline and they knew exactly what they were doing.

“Not a Hip-Hop Coach = Black guy who prejudice white people are going to attempt to like.”

I hope Strong knows what he is in for in Texas.
