All WHITE American League Are Apparently Not Racist


Lies! The All-American Basketball Alliance announced that “Only players that are natural born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league.” Currently, they are trying to find 12 cities to host teams, one being Augusta whose Mayor refused to support this minor league team.

“As a sports enthusiast, I have always supported bringing more sporting activities to Augusta. However, in this instance I could not support in good conscience bringing in a team that did not fit with the spirit of inclusiveness that I, along with many others, have worked so hard to foster in our city.”

And rightly so.

Yet, Don “Moose” Lewis, commissioner of the AABA defends the league restrictions as not being racist.

“There’s nothing hatred about what we’re doing,” he reasons, (with himself, no doubt) “I don’t hate anyone of colour. But people of white, American-born citizens are in the minority now. Here’s a league for white players to play fundamental basketball, which they like.”

How about players are chosen for their TALENT, not the colour of their skin!!

The non-racist Lewis also pointed out that he wanted ”to emphasize fundamental basketball instead of “street-ball” played by “people of colour.” OH Really?

“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? That’s the culture today, and in a free country we should have the right to move ourselves in a better direction.” The all-white direction.

He cited the recent incident with Gilbert Arenas’ indefinite suspension for bringing guns into the Washington Wizards locker room to generalize the discontent fans have with how professional sports are conducted.

How you feel and how the public feels are different. Condemning an entire race due to the idiocies of a few people of that colour is wrong and reminds us of this. Excluding people and blaming them for the downfall of a sport you feel is not in the right direction is like saying Hitler was justified in singling out Jewish people and blaming them for the economy. Racism is bred through attitudes like this and it’s amazing to see that people still think like this.

Don’t you think so?
