One of the longest-tenured high school football referees in the state of Texas has been suspended for the entire 2019 season for making racist remarks.
According to the Houston Chronicle, Mike Atkinson, a high school ref of 45 years, was recorded using the N-word in several conversations. The recordings, obtained by the Chronicle, came to light in a lawsuit filed by Joe Machol, a high school and college official who also worked as a game clock operator for the Houston Texans. https://blacksportsonline.com/2019/06/watch-hs-football-ref-mike-atkinson-blame-his-use-of-the-n-word-on-bet-here-is-the-punishment-he-was-given-audio-of-him-saying-ngger-repeatedly-video/
