    This is something you don't see every day, an all white professional basketball league. Will you go if it comes to a city near you and do you agree with the premise of it?




    Whites-Only Basketball League: All-American Basketball Alliance Bans Blacks, Foreigners

    A whites-only basketball league aims to launch in twelve cities this summer, according to a report in the Augusta Chronicle. The All-American Basketball Alliance would also ban players born outside the United States.

    The report includes additional shocking quotes from the commissioner:

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

    "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?" he said. "That's the culture today, and in a free country we should have the right to move ourselves in a better direction."


    From the Augusta paper:
    Basketball league for white Americans targets Augusta 011910 - The Augusta Chronicle

    Quote:
    A new professional basketball league boasting rosters made up exclusively of white Americans has its eyes set on Augusta, but the team isn't receiving a warm welcome.
    -------------
    "Only players that are natural born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league," the statement said.

    They're racist assholes, but far as I know they have a right to be racist assholes as long as they're not taking any federal funds.

    If you have to ask yourself that question, you're not paying attention.

    No, it's comments like these:

    Other than Ron Artest and Gilbert Arenas, most of the NBA is well-behaved. So if this is their excuse, it's a pitiful one. Which is why I think they're assholes.

    And if they take federal funds, they wouldn't be allowed to do this as far as I know.

    I'm saying two major incidents in recent memory. But maybe you can get me a list of incidents that have occurred in NBA arenas.

    And the Ron Artest one was a few years ago. But go ahead, enlighten me please.

    lol ... with the way that reads you would think that you need to come to an NBA game wearing a flak vest or some shit.

    Sounds like a boring ass league anyway. Who the hell wants to watch a bunch of white boys play ball?
