Which is Harder to Believe?

You be the judge.

The first:

Last week the Houston Texans of the National Football League lost to the Tennessee Titans by a score of 20-17.  The Houston team was trying to score when time ran out and the game ended. The Houston Chronicle published a story about the game and its ending and, as is often the case, readers posted their own comments after the story in the newspaper’s online edition.  One of those comments read:

That may have been the most inept quarterback decision I’ve seen in the NFL.  When you need precision decision making you can’t count on a black quarterback.

The quarterback of the Houston team, Deshaun Watson, is black.

That’s pretty bad, right?


The second:

The person who wrote that comment?  It was the superintendent of the Onalaska Independent School District, which is about 75 miles from Houston.

So, which is worst?  The comment or the source?  Or does it even matter?
