Especially in pro sports these days. There are so many black people around that a coach would have to be out of his mind nuts to call a black person that name.
Somebody in the Tigers locker room would have beaten the piss out of Bosio if he actually did what a certain person here is inferring he did. There is no question about it. Also, if Bosio was somebody that had issues with race, you'd think they would have surfaced at some point between 1986 and today and there's no way that he would have made it to become a Major League pitching coach...that would have gotten him blackballed in the minors. As a player in the '80s and '90s he could have gotten away with a lot more than as a coach in the '00s and '10s. Even fifteen years ago he would have been fired on the spot or had his ass handed to him if he called a person of color a monkey. It didn't happen.
LOL@ THIS CRAP you just wrote , other people were there and verified he called the black dude a monkey
Bosio called the attendant, who is African-American, a “monkey,” according to four team sources. The remark was directed toward the young man, who was collecting towels from the coaches’ room at the time, during a post-game gripe session in which Bosio was lamenting about a pitcher. During this exchange, Bosio made a derogatory comment about one of the Tigers pitchers and then gestured toward the attendant before adding, “like this monkey here,” the sources said. The attendant pushed back at Bosio for the comment, and an additional team employee witnessed the exchange. Bosio was provided an opportunity to apologize to the attendant after his outburst but declined to do so, according to multiple sources. These sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
It is obvious to most with common sense what went down because the Tigers wouldn't fire him unless others verified the story.
