Just What Sports Needs, More Racism!

AABA is creating an All-White basketball league. Not the "Dancing Queen" people (that's ABBA), but the American Alliance for Basketball Alliance (listen, I know the acronym is the AABA, but I really don't care enough to look up what it really stands for, it means nothing to the rest of this piece). This will be basketball how it was played in the 1940s; hopefully, they will be bringing the short shorts back, as well.

The commissioner of the AABA, a man who calls himself "Moose" in a press release, claims it's not about hate.

"There's nothing hatred about what we're doing," he said. I'm not even sure that's an acceptable sentence grammatically, but I love it. It truly captures the essence of this Moose fellow. You can imagine he gave that quote while he was leaning on a half-completed fence, with a piece of straw in his mouth and a six-gun on his waist. Probably wearing a cowboy hat, enjoying the nice weather while his wife, with two fresh black eyes and improved sense of decorum, is working inside the house.

Anyway, he claims he doesn't hate people of color, but that the league will be there for while players to play fundamental basketball, which they like. Someone needs to inform Moose that a league based on selling the fundamental side of basketball already exists. It's called the WNBA and it makes a boatload of money (yeah, makes it disappear! Hey oh!).

Finally, there's an option for the guy who loves basketball, but just hates the prospect of making millions of dollars playing the bastardized version the NBA puts on. I've actually written in the past about how it would be awesome to have a racist team exist in one of the main four sports leagues ,but I never considered the prospect of having an entire league of racists.

When I first heard about this, I reacted the way you would when an 9-year-old tells you he's opening a lemonade stand. It's adorable in nature but is destined to be a disaster financially.

What I don't understand is why they don't go all out with their racism. It's pretty clear what this is, so why do they try and hide it? Go ahead and market your product to the ignorant and undereducated and really drive it home. Maybe we can have an AABA finals where the Klansmen take on the Overseers. Instead of a team bus, you can have the General Lee. Maybe at halftime they could have piñatas of our President or, if that's too educational, they could make fans shoot a half-court shot to win a GED.

"Would you want to go to the game and worry about a player flipping you off or attacking you in the stands or grabbing their crotch?" Moose said in a press release.

I think I would be more scared that a player or fan would attack me after discovering I've read an entire book.

Please don't misunderstand me, I think this is a fantastic idea and I hope they get a TV deal immediately. I would probably watch the first game just because the idea of a bunch of racists playing a game un-athletically, or "fundamentally," would be hilarious. I can't wait to see what type of player would actually suit up for a game like this. Whoever it is, they are probably wearing jean shorts with their team jersey. It would be like a sports version of the "Jersey Shore." You hate the people the show is about but you like the fact that you can watch it and know you're a better person than every single character.

And I hope whatever TV station snatches up this train wreck is already developing a second league to promote. The blacks-only NHL. Moose probably already has a slogan for that — "Blacks-only NHL ... when you have this many black guys in one place, more than just the ice is gonna get cut."

Rather than ramble on about the rights versus the wrongs of having an “All White Basketball league” (Which I believe is fair), would just like to say that for close to five decades the blacks have pretty much been running the show… Sadly, they’ve never been content with our elected leadership and seem to thrive on dips like Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, Marty King, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, etc., etc., to do their bullying for them. “Including” bullying their way into the Nation’s Sports Arenas. And can someone tell me why we American tax payers have to pay for the existence of a “Congressional Black Caucus”…???


It’s been suggested that the blacks are superior to whites when it comes to sports, but the truth is that white kids, who have honed their talents (Yes, very much including basketball) through Grammar School, High School and College, only to find themselves weeded out of the “System” (Read the 3rd paragraph) in their Junior or Senior years of those Colleges. To satisfy the vicious underground “Black Agenda” that rules the show… Bugs me because I enjoy it when the “Hoop It Up” tournaments come to town. The kids come from all over, and it’s a pleasure to watch the “White” kids run absolute rings around the best that the “Blacks” have to offer. “White” kids who could put Michael Jordon to shame. So Please…! Don’t anyone give me that “Uppity Black Superior Crap”…


Though I remain confused as to why so many blacks put up with these self-proclaimed black leaders, with their Rolex watches, Limos, hugh expense accounts that they’ve bilked from their own people and other millions they’ve bilked out of intimidated Corporations who would rather anti-up on huge settlements then drag their Companies through long, drawn our trials to answer to “Trumped Up Discrimination Charges” by the likes of Jesse Jackson and other “Black Leaders”…


For the life of me, I do not understand why this “Silent Majority” of the African American community does’nt stand up to these bullies. I’ve no doubt that if I were to drive over to Massachusetts, stand atop a soap box at “Boston Commons”, and then rant and rave for an hour or two on whatever injustices befell the Irish during their history, I would last just that… About two hours before I’d be tarred, feathered and run out of town on a rail. And those carrying that rail would bear such names as , O’Malley, McCourt, Plimpton and Reardon… And I’m sure most, if not all, other ethic groups in this awesome US of A would act in similar fashion if one of their member’s also took to a soap box….


It’s quite difficult to explain to some of you younger one’s out there what it has has been like for those of us Americans who experienced our lives both during the wonderful & peaceful decades prior to the assassination of President Kennedy. When we actually celebrated the birthdays of two of our Nation’s most beloved Presidents, George Washington & Abraham Lincoln. They’ve both been stripped of their much deserved “Honor” and “Federal Holidays” and been replaced by some “Nit-Wit” we know of as Marty King… And then the turbulent, violent and despicable decades old behavior to followthe murder of JFK. Behavior attributed, primarily to blacks, who simply took advantage while good ‘ole Uncle Sam’s guard was down.


It is equally difficult to explain the frustration, especially with regard to those of us who had relatives who served in the American Civil War, but also to many generations of American whites for the absolute, total and complete lack of appreciation extended to this fine Nation by the blacks for the sacrifices made to right a devious wrong… Slavery… A wrong perpetuated by the collaboration of both the Tribal leaders of Africa and Jewish merchants of an era beginning prior to the American Revolution.

Allowing ourselves to give credit to a young and fledging Nation we now know of as the United States of America, and it’s difficult years following the win over Britain, the fact that it took us only about a decade less than 100 years to gather (From scratch) the resources’ to tackle this wrong is testament to an incredible Nation that, without any doubt, had it’s wonderful heart in the right place…


And the additional fact that, in the close to 15 decades (145 years…) since the end of the American Civil War, not one single black (Including the Liberal’s precious Barack Obama) has ever acknowledged, “Thanked” or even come close to showing any level of appreciation or respect toward the “359,528″ Union soldiers who died on so many battlefields to insure a better life for the black man… Sacrifices which caused much suffering to family members of those incredible Union Soldiers… Family members that, surely, must have amounted in the millions… It’s appropriate to add here that “275,175″ Union Soldiers were wounded… Most severely.


It was a time in American History for the black man to embrace the love, the support and the “Blood, Sweat & Tears” provided to them by the awesome people of the United States. Not only to express it, but to pass that expression onto succeeding generations… In this, their failure has been complete…


The only reward received by those Union soldiers, their families and this great Nation is “Contempt” by the black psyche that continues to ferment within their own family lives and, much to the woe of the predominantly European American populace here in the USA, propagate itself into the American mainstream…


Sincerest regards,

LMAO…[email protected]……they could make fans shoot a half-court shot to win a GED.
But really….is “Moose” any more racist than…..an all Black TV station…a “blacks only” college or a local politician or activest urging “their people” to only support or buy from black owned businesses…..?

if you take out the word “black” and insert “white”…..your a racist……and if you re-insert the word “black”….your a “hero” for… “futhering the cause” or “helping to raise-up, your people”……
my guess is….that may have been the whole point of Moose and abba….

one more thing…. while I do like your articles and usually agree or like your points…….by writing this paragraph……

“”You can imagine he gave that quote while he was leaning on a half-completed fence, with a piece of straw in his mouth and a six-gun on his waist. Probably wearing a cowboy hat, enjoying the nice weather while his wife, with two fresh black eyes and improved sense of decorum, is working inside the house”“

aren’t you basically, standing right next to moose …..?


Respectfully…..

Vestea:

The first reposne was ignorant. Sports is ofr the best player. This is called competition buddy.
How many french players are white in the NBA?
Bet you didn’t even know there were black people in France?

Whoever is a good player needs to plat that’s all. College used to be all white. Then when a few schools let blacks play, they started winning.

I thought the article was about basketball, and the first response brings up the Civil War. This idiot is asking why no one thanked the Union Soldiers.

The are some really racist people in the US dear god save this country!
