The Augusta Chronicle reported on Tuesday that the All-American Basketball Alliance plans to kick off its inaugural season in June and hopes that Augusta will be one of 12 cities to host teams.

But here's the kicker: According to a press release the newspaper and other Augusta media outlets received from the new league, "only players that are natural-born United State citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league."

The Mormons will dominate this league.

Personally I hate anything that divides humanity more than it is. I hate this concept just as much as I hate national latino or african american month.

**** skin color obsession and **** those who let it define them... that includes white people acting all uppity or black people acting all thug. Anyone who defines their personality and who they associate with due to their skin color is a ****ing idiot in my mind.

Ok, I am just kidding. Don't hate. How can they even get something like this going? Aren't there some laws against discriminating like that?

I think when they no longer carry that "victim" mentality things will be better.
I think in part the black community refuses to forget and move on and believe the world still owes them something.

We have made big strides quickly to make the issue go away.
Having a black president should help a lot, and I hope it continues to help and get better...

I for one would like us to draft Toby Gerhart so we can show the rest of the NFL that we are not a racist organization .... and that our treatment of Hillis was not racism.

Yeah, that's really not legal.

As for black organizations, to my knowledge, they cannot discriminate. Like, if BET didn't allow Eminem on their network simply because he's white, I'd think that Eminem could sue them and win.

I'm a member of a black fraternity, but there are white members. We cannot and do not discriminate based on color.

White people can and do attend black colleges.

As for the reasons behind BET, the United Negro College Fund, and stuff like that, at a time there was a great need for those things, and I'd still say that there is a need for them today. It doesn't cause an uproar because of the history of this country. There are more blacks in network TV and in mainstream media, but do you think that BET is going to go out of business? No. They're making money over there. And lets be real, Hollywood is still dominated by white actors. I'm not saying it is because of racism. That's just how it is. White people are still the majority here and it shows in most industries. So there is still a need for minorities to have their own stuff. And really looking at it, if the majority hadn't discriminated against the minorities for the bulk of this country's history, we wouldn't have minority groups making their own stuff.

As for this white only league, if they want to promote it as a league for white people, well, they can do that. It's not a good PR move, but they have every right to do it. Now if they did not allow a person from another race play in it, they'd be in some legal trouble.

Just to lighten things up a bit, would this kid be able to play? I'm just saying. ;D

It is the second decade of the 21st century. No one can claim racism prevented them from achieving success anymore. If the president can come from a minority community, then so can anyone else.

That is not to say racism doesn't exist anymore. You can't stop an individual from holding prejudices. Its just that racism can't hold you back anymore.

As a minority, I do experience racism sometimes. But it has never affected me professionally. And America has more opportunities to succeed for everyone than most other countries.

Wouldn't a private club have the right to choose its members as it saw fit?

In other words, if someone created a private club dedicated to the advancement of minority education resources (for example) ... wouldn't they have the right to exclude white Klan members?

It's ignorant, but I'm not 100% certain that it's illegal.

Lewis said he wants to emphasize "fundamental basketball" instead of "street ball" played by "people of color."


Lewis pointed out recent incidents in the NBA, including Gilbert Arenas' suspension for bringing a gun into the Washington Wizards locker room, and said, "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?"

Yeah, as if white people have never flipped anyone off. (jake plummer) I can't believe people here are defending this guy.

Have mercy on me my lord, I'm just tryna walk to the corner store
And the brown and blue armies are always at war,
What on earth they wanna harm me for? I don't know(x2)

We raise monsters in the basement
Feed 'em shell casings and train 'em to chase us
We rip most the pages out of the bibles and Qur'ans
In this house it's their view we care about
Such as God has forsaken us
And from his anger gush forth plagues and floods
The chosen people done stoned the great prophet
His mighty wrath stay upon us till the day of judgment
We spend days punchin' brick walls
The scabs we rip em off and fill them bitches with salt
To all injury we add insult
Got a leather bound edition of **** that ain't our fault
Swabbin' down the bridges with lighter fluid
Too timid to burn them we pray the lightning do it
I wear this mask 'till my face grow to fit it
Frozen in a paradigm waitin' out my sentence
Livin' in a well, self made hell
Medicated, dwellin' in a pit within myself
I waste time patiently, suffering the pain
And kindly invite you to hell for not saving me
I see a poor victims face
Reflected on the pawn shop glass pistol case,
The breath make it foggy and then it gets clear
Now which medal here would fit best in the ear?

Have mercy on me my lord, I'm just tryna walk to the corner store
And the brown and blue armies are always at war,
What on earth they wanna harm me for? I don't know(x2)

We gon dig us a ditch, move directly to the edge and live on that ****,

John Riggins is a flava clown. It does not detract from their physical ability to call someone this, nor is it used in a racial subtext. It is merely a description of that player's personality and style.

Isnt the NFL dominated by black players? That would automatically mean most flava clowns are black, simply because of the environment they are in. Ryan Leaf, John Riggins, Chris Cooley, Jeremy Shockey can be accurately described as flava clowns. They are all pretty damn pale.

Isnt the NFL dominated by black players? That would automatically mean most flava clowns are black, simply because of the environment they are in. Ryan Leaf, John Riggins, Chris Cooley, Jeremy Shockey can be accurately described as flava clowns. They are all pretty damn pale.

:Broncos:

You might use the term in context that is acceptable, but that doesn't mean everyone does. It's a lame term anyways. I don't see why it's so hip or funny. It's crass.

I prefer the terms "prick" or "funny" depending on the player. For example, Chris Cooley is just funny, but Ryan Leaf was an angry prick.

That's why 80-90% of instances where this term is used on this site involve athletes of color?

"flava" is black slang. It's used here to primarly mock 'em, not white folk.



That's why I always had a problem with that term.

So if it only applies to black people (well, it's only used for black people here), then it's true what I always thought, it's a racist term.

Like, Kobe Bryant was called a flavor clown around here. So what does he have in common with, lets say, Pacman Jones, who seems to fit the description of a flavor clown? Nothing but the color of his skin. I have a problem with that term.


***Edit***

A good friend of mine here let me know that the term has been used to describe white athletes too, so I stand corrected. If people are using the term to simply describe an attention whore of flamboyant person of any race, which is how I first took it years ago, then I have no problem with it.

Not sure why everyone is equating white basketball players with women when it comes to dunking. Skin color does not define height. Look at the Serbian league.

I agree that this is without a doubt a step in the wrong direction, but...

I don't the get whole oppression argument. As a history nerd I fully understand the pains and destruction that slavery has caused since its conception. The only problem I have with African Americans claiming the white man is their oppressor is I was oppressed by the white man too. My ancestors faced genocide and slavery from the Romans, I'm still expecting my reparations check from the Roman senate. Oh and referring to Whites as Caucasians is actually inferring that they are "superior" since Johan Blumenbach conceptualized arian superiority believing the perfect human came from the Caucus mountains.

I work for a program that mentors under privileged inner city kids in my time off from the lab, I work with 90% African American males. So if you want to call me a racist for my history lesson you can keep dreaming. Facts are facts.

Let's face it blacks have a bit more athletic ability then whites do. I will say this though that white directors make better movies. Spike Lee stinks. But blacks are better at playing funk and jazz, but whites better at rock. Eh who cares the point is we are all American and that's what really matters. It's not whether we are black or white, it's how many medals we win at the Olympics coming up. AMERICA!!!! **** YEAH!!!!!

I like BET for some of the jazz stuff they put on. IMO it is fine the way it is. It doesn't offend me in the least. The whole point is that a lot of the black programming on TV is a joke. Why is it always some slapstick family with a goofball dad? Then in movies there are always thugs and tough guys. BET doesn't seem to be hurting anyone. They certainly don't infringe on my happiness or my ability to enjoy TV.

You should also know that white people were slaves to black people in the Egypt region at one point too.

It's all happened at one point or another.

Current era black pigmented individuals b****ing about slavery is pathetic in my eyes. That time is over just as the time of the Romans is long gone.

Also, black people weren't all captured in nets and brought over here. They were sold by their own people. Their OWN people sold them into slavery, and that **** is still going on in Africa.

Personally if I was an African American I would be beyond thankful for the pain and suffering my ancestors had to go through in order for me to live in this country. After all, none of these people would even exist had slavery never happened.

This is not a "yay for slavery" thing btw. The concept of it sickens me. It's just reality.

Everyone needs to move on from events that no living person on this planet was a part of. Unfortunately "racial pride" and retarded **** like that only serves to keep humanity divided.

The station has some good programing. However, it just heightens the division of humanity based on skin color.

Having a station with a bunch of TV shows with almost entirely black actors doesn't scream to the kids who watch it that this is a world where skin color doesn't matter.

It screams to hang out with people of your own skin color, which big shocker... is what's overwhelmingly happening among the black pigmented population.

haha--your stupidity for associating my views with those of the Klan is mind numbing..I am CATHOLIC numbnuts..........right after they got done with the blacks--they'd burn down my house too numbskull.

In 1915, the second Klan was founded. It grew rapidly in a period of postwar social tensions, where industrialization in the North attracted numerous waves of immigrants from southern and eastern Europe and the Great Migration of Southern blacks and whites. In reaction, the second KKK preached racism, anti-Catholicism, anti-Communism, nativism, and anti-Semitism. Some local groups took part in lynchings, attacks on private houses, and carried out other violent activities. The Klan committed the most numerous murders and acts of violence in the South, which had a tradition of lawlessness
