A high school basketball announcer in Oklahoma is in serious hot water for calling Black players “f–king n—–s” because they kneeled during the playing of the National Anthem.
The moment was all caught due to a hot mic.
The Norman HS girls hoops team faced off against Midwest City during the Oklahoma 6A state basketball tournament Thursday, but things got off to a rocky start during the playing of the Anthem.
Every player from Norman elected to kneel for the duration of the anthem and it pissed the announcer off.
“They’re kneeling? Fucking ni—-s. I hope Norman gets their ass kicked. Fuck them. I hope they lose. They’re gonna kneel like that?”
Norman superintendent Dr. Nick Migliorino ripped the “racist and hateful” comments in a scathing statement … saying, “We condemn and will not tolerate the disgusting words and attitudes of these announcers.”
“This type of hate speech has no place in our society and we are outraged that it would be directed at any human being, and particularly at our students.”
“We fully support our students’ right to freedom of expression and our immediate focus is to support these girls and their coaches and families, particularly our Black students and coaching staff.”
“It is tragic that the hard work and skill of this team is being overshadowed by the vile, malignant words of these individuals. We will do everything in our power to support and uplift our team and everyone affected by this incident.”
