    It bugs me that factual statements are used against you in politics.

    Maybe a reason more folks don’t seek office?

    Yeah, I saw the movie a long time ago...

    I was more referring to the title of the movie, inferring that whites can't play basketball like blacks can....

    And what about Bryant Gumballs comments last winter, about the winter olympics??
    I don't remember his exact words, but something to the effect that they were all white athletes. Like it's the white persons fault that blacks don't snow ski..

    The truth is.....whites are better at some sports, and blacks are better at some... Whats so hard to see about that....

    And for someone to be upset over a statement about someone swimming is well, ridiculous....

    Its really stupid for any politician to say anything that we all know will be blown out of proportion.

    As for the comment itself, whoopty shit, unbelievable how people get bent out of shape over some stupid comment.

    So you know that was the point of the movie then, using that stereotype to hussle people. Using that movie's title is probably the most used incorrect example of a racial stereotype.
