He has got to resign or be fired..if not prepare for a rash of expensive racial discrimination lawsuits from any minority employees or the parents of minority students who will see an opportunity to cash in on this situation. He can hire any lawyer in the land but the video is evidence he participated in a racist skit targeting the President of the UnitedStates.

Was it racist when Leon Coffee used a Reagan Mask years ago?
How about when Slim Pickens used an Eisenhower dummy during the early 50's?

my bet is, sadly, he will be looking for work soon ...though basically he did nothing wrong....to many double standards in the race game these days.
