    I'm a life long Lakers fan but I fail to see why anybody would celebrate a championship victory by any team in any sport. It means nothing to you personally. In fact, if the NBA folded tomorrow, I'm certain my life wouldn't change one iota.

    Until the Lakers start sending me checks, I won't care if they win or lose.

    Sheesh, tell me about it. I've been living in Montreal for the past three years and let me tell you, these Quebecois sure love to FUCK SHIT UP after winning a hockey match! I was actually in this first one (but left before the real riot started):

    CBC News - Montreal - Montreal mobs loot stores after Game 7 win


    CBC News - Canada - Police cars burned, stores looted in Montreal hockey riot

    But this seems like it was the daddy of them all:

    What facts, 3 riots by French Canadians? Provide evidence that in this Country whites riot nearly as much as blacks. Cause as much damage and injury as many people.

    It was actually 4.

    Riots are more likely to be used by people who feel historically oppressed in some sense, like Blacks in America or the French in Canada, as sort of a collective cultural memento of that oppression. Also why there's more riots in developing countries, either by whites, blacks, or browns.

    But hey, if you want to defend the racist, all the more power to you buddy. :lol:

    It is not racism to note FACTS. The fact is in the US Blacks and Hispanics riot more often, more violently and with deadlier consequences then whites.
