JOHN CALIPARI FINALLY CROSSES THE LINE IN KENTUCKY: GIVES GIFT TO A BLACK MAN

KENTUCKY COACH JOHN CALIPARI HOLDS UP AN “OBAMA” JERSEY IN VIDEO ON HIS WEBSITE

Constantly cheating at every basketball program you’ve ever been employed by is not enough to get you in trouble with college basketball boosters in the South. After all, it’s probably THE REASON the University of Kentucky hired John Calipari, in the first place. Even paying for an abortion for your mistress won’t get you in trouble with Kentucky hoops fans. As long as you’re winning.

Do you know what WILL get you in trouble? Sending your school’s basketball jersey to an African-American president. The big controversy this past week in Kentucky was a video Calipari posted on his website and Facebook page. On the video, Calipari holds up an “Obama” jersey he intended to send to the President of the United States. Kentucky fans went INSANE. They beseiged both sites with so many negative and blatantly racist comments that Calpari had to remove the post.

Maybe UK fans are the reason former basketball coach Billy Gillespie recently checked into rehab.
