Transcript of a recording that has led to an investigation of Lauderdale County High School teacher and head football coach Bob Grisham:
Grisham: Like those lunches – you get 600-calorie lunches – you know who’s behind that?
Different voice: Michelle Obama
Grisham: Fat butt Michelle Obama
(Giggling in background)
Grisham: And look … look at her. She looks like she weighs 185 or 190. She’s overweight.
Different voice: Big fat gorilla
Grisham: I’m serious. Y’all, our country is, is, is going in the wrong direction.
Different voice: It’s going straight to hell.
Grisham: You’d better be aware of it. And people running around like, oh it’ll get better, it’ll get better. No, it ain’t gone get no better until things change. I can give you example after example of that, but I don’t want to use any local names to give you examples. Things won’t get better until there’s a change in some areas and stuff. And you know what his platform was? Change. We’re gone change. We’re all … aw it’s OK …. for … and … y’all can get pissed off at me or not. You can go tell the principal, you can call the superintendent and tell her. I don’t believe in queers, I don’t like queers. I don’t … I don’t hate them as a person but what they do is wrong, it’s an abomination against God. I don’t like being around queers.
He’d be much better off if he said, “I love queers, in fact, I’m a queer. Who wants to come with coach to the ball bag shed and get a little queerdom injected into them?”
He not only wouldn’t be fired, he’d be up for teacher of the year for being sensitive to LGBTMCA causes.
