On August 29, Superintendent Richard Como (that Silver Fox pictured above) and Coatesville High School athletic director Jim Donato resigned from their respective positions citing personal reasons. As it turns out, on August 18 School Board Member Tonya Thames Taylor received a copy of texts Como and Donato sent to each other over the course of a two week period in June -- a racially-charged two-week period, I might add.
After reading the texts -- which start off in the most offensive way possible, unless you're Clayton Bigsby -- Tonya Thames Taylor contacted Board President Neil Campbell as well as other high-ranking board members and in the next ten days Como and Donato suddenly got the urge to resign. Weird, right?
Now, the duo's resignations are being voted on and a lot of angry people are asking for the board to fire Como and Donato rather than let their resignations go through. I don't know much about teachers retiring, but I'm guessing firing them will do something in the way of fucking them out of cash, which I doubt anyone not named Como or Donato would mind.
So that is the story, and these are the texts. Brace yourselves, it's a racist ride.
