Texans blast educator for 'black QB' comment about Watson

HOUSTON (AP) The Houston Texans fired back Wednesday at an East Texas school superintendent who wrote: "You can't count on a black quarterback," in the comment section of an online news article where he was criticizing quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Lynn Redden is superintendent of the Onalaska Independent School District in the Piney Woods, about 75 miles north of Houston. In his post in the comment section of a story written by the Houston Chronicle and posted on Facebook, Redden referred to the last play of Sunday's game, in which Watson let the clock run down before completing a pass to DeAndre Hopkins in a 20-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Redden's full post read: "When you need precision decision making you can't count on a black quarterback." It was quickly deleted, but not before another reader took a screenshot of it and sent it to the newspaper.
