A 78-year-old bus driver in Utah has been fired, is facing a lawsuit from an angry mother and is being accused of being a racist but his defense is something else.

The driver pinned a kid’s backpack in the door of the bus, and dragged him 150 feet along the sidewalk and the kid’s mom says he did it on purpose, because her son is biracial.

Now whether the incident was racially-motivated, his defense does not help his case at all.

When local news interviewed him, he said he’s not racist because his dog is “black as can be.”

Nope, sir, that’s not how any of this works…he’s probably racist.
