Race War On The Gridiron – San Antonio – Assault Victim Referee Now Accused Of “Racism”

Well, well, well.  Apparently someone asked the race question, or one of the suspended football players just made the accusation out of the clear blue sky.  Last Friday, two defensive backs playing football for San Antonio John Jay High School blindsided a referee who allegedly made a few calls which did not help the Jay team.  Jay lost the game.  Today the victim referee stands accused of racism.

What a surprise.

You can read my original commentary on the situation by clicking here.  (BTW, YouTube scrubbed the video of the incident and the accompanying ESPN commentary which I posted.  Another surprise.  So, I’ve posted a different clip – above – from the ABC San Antonio site.)

The two football players have been suspended, both from the John Jay team and from school, while the cops and school district conduct an in-depth investigation.  Now a John Jay assistant coach is also suspended with pay for allegedly suggesting during the game that the referee in question should be made to “pay for” the harm his bad officiating was inflicting on the John Jay team.

With thanks to Drudge for the link, here’s a part of the ABC News San Antonio report (which includes some video footage of the assault):

Two Texas football players accused of intentionally ramming into a referee during a high school game allege the referee directed racial slurs at them, school district officials said Tuesday.

The district, which previously suspended the two players, has placed an assistant coach on paid leave while it investigates allegations that he suggested there should be retaliation against the referee for missed calls, Northside Independent School District Superintendent Brian T. Woods said at a news conference…

…Northside school district officials said that during the game, the suspended players “were feeling lots of frustration by what they perceived to be missed or wrong calls by the refs.” The players also alleged the referee directed racial slurs at them.

The students allege that assistant coach Mack Breed, 29, said “that guy needs to pay for cheating us” or words to that effect, according to the district.

“The alleged comments by the coach are in no way a reflection of the John Jay coaching staff whatsoever. If that did happen, he let the emotions get the best of him,” said Northside school district athletic director Stan Laing…

I’m not too optimistic that the facts will carry the day in this story, whatever the facts may be.  As soon as allegations of “racism” are made, reason and truth are soon thrown out the window into the trash bin, justifying violence and acts of criminal behavior.

But, we shall see how this progresses.  I will not be at all surprised to see the entry of some left-wing political activist organizations (such as La Raza) into the fray – to hurl additional broader accusations, thereby obfuscating the truth.  If enough incendiary racial material is poured onto the flames, eventually it will be literally impossible to discern truth from lies.

By the way, the literal Spanish to English translation of La Raza is The Race.


I wonder if officials at The White House are keeping an eye on this one for possible further exploitation in dividing Americans along racial lines.

After all, there is much more than bad sportsmanship during a high school football game at stake.  There’s an entire nation to be torn apart here.

Somewhere Karl Marx is smiling.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
