    Must have been too many "people of color" stepping on the shadows of white players during games.

    OMG! So you give into the sterotype? Black players "jazz up" the game to make it more exciting. So only black players can score? You are just as bad as Lewis.

    Players play with the full intensity of the game. And players who use flash at the expense of the game get seated quickly, or should be, by the coaches.

    This is sports. There is passion and emotion running through these athletes. There is a time to show off a little. And ANYONE who acts out of line gets dealt with and it has NOTHING to do with race.

    Since when are manners a race issue? So only white player have manners? Has this guy ever seen a hockey game, where beating the shit out of each is part of the games culture?

    You watch Chelsea Lately too? :biggrin1:



    Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!!!!
    That "0-0" comment was originally a joke from a comedian on E! Entertainment. And since you want to claim there's some racism going on, the comedian who said this is white. Look it up on YouTube. My God!

    Without some level of flash, nobody would watch the games. Without a gimmick, whether it be a team that has the superstar Forward that always scores the most points and does it with style, or the team that promotes diversity with a frontline that doesn't look like a Spike Lee Film, the majority of sports fans would not tune in at all. You know that, the fans know that, and everyone signing the paychecks for these players ALSO knows that.

    It's obvious when a player is trying to get too flashy and that is dealt with. But come on. Using excuses like "street ball played by people of color" as a means to this catalyst? Especially when one of the people on the And1 Team is a white player? It's all bullshit.

    Here's the player I was referring to, aka Randy Gill, winning the Who's Got Game tournament hosted by Magic Johnson, which lead to him being picked up by the And1 team.

    It's also entertainment, which means people do expect something that goes beyond the average game that anyone could watch at a local YMCA.

    Why don't you tell that to the person who wants to open an All-White League, who brought up petty issues about ball grabbing and hand gesturing as a reason why he started it?

    Disclaimer - THE FOLLOWING IS A JOKE. Phasers set to stun on anyone who even dares to try and twist this into something else.

    Hockey... America's original "All White" League. But watch out... like Chris Rock said, as soon as they find a way to put heaters on the ice we're coming for ya!!

    End Disclaimer. :rolleyes:

    So I've got this joke I like to tell about the difference between niggers and black people. It's cool though- the guy who told it first was black himself.

    Everything swings both ways. My above statement is flawed, just as yours is.

    Bullshit. Now sit back and pay attention, sweetie. Here's a lesson about race you need to adhere to. :rolleyes:

    Did you think I was going to be offended just because you listed the word 'nigger', thinking that the problem is the word itself and not the overall context of the statement? You're a bigger fool than the person who uses the "n" word if you think that.

    Every person has their own tolerance level when it comes to speech, and will accept certain levels of slang depending on the personal relationship one develops with another. I have a number of people who use slurs with me and I don't even flinch. Not all of them are black either. They didn't do that at first, but as we got to know each other and become comfortable, we could strip away the formalities and be more casual with our speech to each other. You earn that right to use that kind of language with people. You don't abuse it by just blurting it out and expecting everyone to understand where you're coming from. Learn the differences. The war on words is bullshit. Words are nothing without context and intent. We're not going to eliminate racism if we just eliminate all of the bad words. The only thing you can do is pick words carefully... and if you're around people you don't know who may be offended, how hard would it be to think of a better way to express oneself? That's not being "politically correct", either. It's showing a basic level of consideration and respect.

    So by all means... you want to tell me the difference between a nigger and a black person? Then by all means, tell your joke but you better make it good. Because I may not be offended, but someone else reading all this surely will be.
