Default Kareem Abdul Jabbar: On the Shoulders of Giants

New inspirational film by Kareem now available via Netflix

Check out the trailer at
http://kareemabduljabbar.com/osg/

On the Shoulders of Giants (is) one of the most inspirational, entertaining and enlightening sports documentaries I’ve ever seen.”

—Richard Roeper, Film Critic Chicago Sun-Times

I remember when the b-ball team from Power Memorial HS in New York came to northern Virginia to play my HS basketball team (the Knights of DJ O'Connell HS). Power featured a 7 foot 2 inch center who dominated the game -- from start to finish. Lew later changed his name to Kareem. You know the rest.

I plan to check out Kareem's new film.

Recently Kareem cancelled a trip to Israel to protest Israel's violent treatment of Palestinians during recent Nakba day protests. Here is the thank you letter sent to Kareem by the US Campaign to End the Occupation:

Joint Letter to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

June 28th, 2011

Dear Kareem Abdul-Jabbar,


http://www.endtheoccupation.org/article.php?id=3038

We are writing to commend you for your principled decision not to attend the Jerusalem Film Festival in response to “concern over the Nakba Day violence,” as indicated by the festival’s foreign office. Indeed, Israel’s brutally violent suppression of peaceful Palestinian youth demonstrations and its shoot-to-kill policy during the Nakba Day protests, in particular, should convince any person of conscience not to lend his or her good name to institutions that divert attention away from Israeli state brutality and human rights violations.

With this decision, you have truly exemplified the commitment to equality for which you were recently honored with the Lincoln Medal. The award is shared by the Archbishop Desmond Tutu, an outspoken critic of Israel for “practising apartheid in its policies towards the Palestinians” and a strong supporter of the Palestinian-led movement for boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) on Israel until it complies with international law and ends its system of occupation and racial discrimination. In Tutu’s words:

“I have witnessed the humiliation of Palestinian men, women, and children made to wait hours at Israeli military checkpoints routinely when trying to make the most basic of trips to visit relatives or attend school or college, and this humiliation is familiar to me and the many black South Africans who were corralled and regularly insulted by the security forces of the Apartheid government.”

We urge you to hold fast to this decision as an act of moral imperative. Visiting Israel in coordination with the Israeli Foreign Ministry and the Israeli Consulate of New York lends an air of legitimacy to Israel’s denial of Palestinian fundamental human rights in a myriad of ways:

Palestinians in the West Bank live under a brutal, 44-year-old military occupation characterized by segregated roads and legal systems, daily violence, and humiliation. Thousands of Palestinian human rights activists, including leaders of the nonviolent popular struggle, have been imprisoned, many without charge or trial. Israel’s illegal settlements and Wall confiscate Palestinian land and separate Palestinian farmers, workers, and families from their schools, jobs, hospitals, and livelihoods, dividing the West Bank into Bantustans.

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip live under an Israeli blockade that “deliberately impoverishes … and condemns hundreds of thousands of potentially productive people to a life of destitution,” according to Chris Gunness, spokesperson for UN Relief and Works Agency. Contrary to international law, Israel has systematically employed white phosphorous and U.S. weapons against civilian men, women, and children in Gaza, killing thousands and destroying basic infrastructure such as schools, hospitals, and water sources.

As non-Jewish citizens, Palestinians inside Israel live under an apartheid system that denies them equal rights to their Jewish counterparts. Israel’s apartheid laws restrict land ownership, housing, employment, and marriage, in many ways resembling Jim Crow.

Millions of Palestinians live in exile since their families were forcibly and systematically uprooted in 1948 during Israel’s creation. Israel has denied these refugees their internationally-recognized right to return to their homes and lands, simply because they are not Jewish.

In an effort to salvage its worsening reputation, Israel has embarked upon an effort to re-brand itself as a beacon of cultural and technological progress, diverting attention away from its war crimes and apartheid policies. Israel uses its cultural institutions, such as the Jerusalem Film Festival, to whitewash its violations of international law and human rights. Your film, “On the Shoulders of Giants,” documents the policies of segregation and racism that characterized the world of basketball in the 1930s. Ironically, the majority of Muslim and Christian Palestinians could not even have attended such a screening because they are excluded from entering Jerusalem on the basis of their ethnicity and religion.

In canceling your appearance in Israel, you join a growing number of people of conscience refusing to conduct “business as usual” with Apartheid Israel. World-renowned artists, film-makers, writers, and activists Arundhati Roy, Ken Loach, Jean Luc Godard, Naomi Klein, Sting, Bono, Pete Seeger, Roger Waters, Snoop Dogg, Elvis Costello, Carlos Santana, Mike Leigh, The Yes men, and the late Gil Scott-Heron have supported the Palestinian civil society BDS call or canceled appearances in Israel following appeals from fans and BDS advocates. BDS is supported by anti-racism advocates from Alice Walker to Dr. Cornel West—who is himself featured in your film. Meg Ryan and Dustin Hoffman decided not to attend the Jerusalem Film Festival last year, following the deadly attacks on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla that killed nine humanitarian aid carriers including one U.S. citizen.

On your website, you write: “Justice should be blind especially color-blind and able to fairly deal with the very real need for honest law enforcement.” You have also said we have to “start letting history teach us.” History has shown that when the world allows an apartheid state to violate laws and racially discriminate with impunity, there comes a time for people of conscience to take a stand and refuse to legitimize an unjust system.

Although you have indicated a desire to “stay out of this argument,” it is instructive to recall Tutu’s words once again: “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”

We kindly ask you to give your consideration to the Palestinian-led BDS campaign, as it is only through such courageous acts that this campaign to pressure Israel to end its injustices can grow and succeed. We would be very happy to meet with you to offer further information or answer any questions you have.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, we thank you for standing on the right side of history.

You've undoubtedly heard the old Lord Acton quote, "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Apparently, it doesn't really matter how that power is derived, and Internet trolls are drunk with it -- "it" being the power of anonymity. According to a study by the Northwestern University, anonymity affects the judgment of people similarly to alcohol intoxication and excessive power.
"Although these pathways appear to be unrelated on the surface, they all lead to disinhibited states through a common psychological and neurological mechanism," said Jacob Hirsh of the university's Kellogg School of Management. Dr. Hirsh's colleague, Professor Adam Galinsky, said the loss of inhibition causes "significant behavioral consequences" -- though, that's not necessarily good or bad in itself.
When a person is operating behind a mask such as the Internet, they're more likely to make decisions that align with their true motives or character -- be that heroism or hedonism. "This is why intoxicated individuals can be aggressive in one instant and altruistic in another," said Hirsh, and it could help explain why people tend to express such extreme views when they get behind a keyboard.


People often feel there are no repercussions for their actions online because they're not visually confronted with another person. Dr. Darryl Cross, a psychologist at Crossways Consulting, believes the anonymity of the Internet encourages split personalities. He noted that people have two personas: one driven by raw animal instinct, and another that's more conservative. The former kicks in online.
"What you've got [online] is people who are prepared to let their instinctual personality out rather than really taking a second perspective, looking at it in a different way, and then saying the second thing that comes into their mind instead of the first." Naturally, this occurs more frequently when you have an open system like ours that encourages "guest" posters, versus strictly registered commenters.
"Anything that requires personal responsibility has got to be a plus," Cross said. "Once they have to register and they're held accountable, then that's really going to be a major step forward." Worried that you're a troll? Cross suggests that you establish a method to determine the demeanor of your comment. For instance, consider what your grandparents might say about your post before submitting it.

Lou Alcindor was a great hoops player but is now just an old man and, as Homer would say, Old people should be locked away and forgotten about.

You are articulating the American view - -which -- given the mayhem we are wreaking on the planet -- is part of the problem.

Native Americans and aboriginal peoples honor their elders -- and regard them as an important source of wisdom.

We in the US stick them in nursing homes -- where we medicate them heavily and keep them out of sight out of mind.

Even as we look down our snotty noses at the rest of the world. From your words -- you are obviously part of the herd.

I was gonna go with "Well, Kareem is a muslim" angle but the next post really put the real reason why he wants to watch the film. Gaff probably never even knew of him until he found out he also disagrees with Israel. And if Kareem disagrees with Israel, then it warrants a thread that just proves how evil Israel really is. Gaff, let us know how many bowls of ganja Abdul Jabbar smokes during the documentary. Such a ****ing troll!
Stop disguising this as sports related. This belongs in the war forum and have a quick death. Certain people should not be allowed to start threads on the Mane page. You and now Baja.

I made it crystal clear why I intend to watch the film -- because I saw Lew Alcinder play --- way back when.

I learned about Kareem's decision to cancel the trip to Israel -- in an email from a peace group -- the Coalition to End the Occupation.

I posted this -- because it shows Kareem's political maturity and savvy -- something that the white A-holes on this board will never understand.

You want your black athletes to perform for you -- like slaves. But if/when they show some smarts about the world we live in -- your true colors -- your thinly veiled racism -- emerges.

Black people intuitively understand your paranoia about Islam for what it is -- nonsense. Likewise your ignorance about Zionism -- just another form of white colonialism -- i.e., a scourge on the planet.

All you do is post some crap thread that like 1% of the planet gives a $hit about and then when you hear other normal peoples opinions of said post you go into telling everyone why they are trash and why you are superior ... Rinse , Repeat.

At what point do the mods just perma ban your Gaff$hit crazy @$$ and save everyone here the trouble and so they don't have to move your stupid threads daily and stop babysitting you constantly ?

You try to turn about every thread you join into a race battle of some sort no matter how not the time place , like your banning during the 9/11 tribute thread , and during the Super Bowl thread.

You have basically became Gonzolays without the occasional funny post.

**** you a-hole! You are one, big racist and because we dont agree with you and your ****ed up views, you now want to turn the tables and call us racist. What political textbook did you get that from? TJ keeps you on this Mane page for I don't know what reasons. I guess we need someone with some gonads like SoCal to find the perfect reason to bounce your ass out of here for a few months.

1. I posted this -- because it shows Kareem's political maturity and savvy -- something that the white A-holes on this board will never understand.

1. We know why you posted it. Stop hiding behind muslim converts.

2. The horror and degredation of making millions a year to play a game for a living. And I am totally surprised you would consider a black athlete smart...as long as they agree with you.

3. Funny how muslim opinion of black people in africa and the middle east would be considered racist anywhere but in the rotted confines of what you call your brain. And btw Gaff, every time you b**** or preach about zionism, you sound like soviet era Pravda.

How many threads have we seen about the ungrateful black athletes who chose to have an opinion?

I've lost count.

You foobah fanatics would send these ungrateful men back to Africa on the first ship -- don't try to deny it.

Kareem was the best center who ever played the game. He earned the right to have an opinion -- and to take a principled decision on an important issue.

Look at the posts. The topic was enough to send the herd animals into a cataleptic stampede of reactionary hate.

This thread was never about mhgaffney -- who continues to be the convenient scapegoat.

1. So he has the right to his opinion because he played a game for a living, and not because he has a God (not allah) given right to do so? And its only principled to you because you agree with it. Why dont you post an article about Shakira going to Israel for UNICEF and pushing universal education? Oh, right. Because she supports Israel's right to exist, which you do not.

2. You made the thread about you with the second post. You dragged this anti-zionist bull**** into the main forum of a FOOTBALL thread. You empty headed cretin.

Because the US media is now in lockdown mode -- you won't find the truth there.

As Jefferson said -- the people must be informed to make good decisions.

Obviously, the American people are NOT well informed -- which explains why everything we care about is going down the toilet.

This unhappy situation calls for the immediate requisition of all available forums -- to reverse the unfortunate trend.

Even at the risk of being a pariah --

So that's it folks.

When you are between a rock and a hard spot -- don't expect a soft landing. It is what it is.
