A South Carolina football coach was recently fired because of his team’s post game ritual involving smashing watermelons and eating them.
From Moultrie News:
Academic Magnet head football coach Bud Walpole was fired Monday amidst controversy surrounding a postgame celebration allegedly deemed inappropriate.
Charleston County School District released a statement Tuesday revealing, “There was an allegation related to inappropriate postgame celebrations by the Academic Magnet High School (AMHS) football team. An investigation was conducted and, as a result of the investigation, the head football coach will no longer be serving as a coach for Charleston County School District.”
The celebration in question reportedly involves players smashing a watermelon after the game. The act became a postgame ritual of sorts as Academic Magnet went on a six-game winning streak this season.

You know, as terrible as it is that PC pushers have made a mockery of real racism by calling everything and everyone racist, what makes it all possible is good people rolling over and letting it happen.
One person (a parent from an opposing team) complained. One. Person. And the coach was fired.
The article doesn’t say who fired him. But I assume it was either a school or county official who was so worried about being labeled a “racist” if they didn’t fire the coach, that they felt they had to. And such is the world in which we live.
Look, no one in their right mind thinks that smashing and eating a particular type of food is inherently racist. That would be insane. But people who knew the truth did nothing and were silenced because they were scared of being labeled a racist. This isn’t justice. This is quite the opposite of justice.
This type of oversensitive nonsense does precisely nothing to alleviate any of the problems facing modern African Americans. All it does it make good people scared to live their lives as they see fit.
