Cancel Culture and Public Self Criticism and kowtowing to the Leftist Disease is creating a Maoist strain to American Life and Culture.
Mao led the Chinese straight down the hell hole of the Cultural Revolution that resulted in millions of deaths.
Puppet Joe Biden, Kamala “The Slave Master” Harris, Nancy “12 dollar Pint” Pelosi and AOC and her Marxist squad of miscreants want nothing less than to lead a cultural revolution in the United States of America.
They would create a People’s Democratic Republic of American States if they are allowed.
Real Humans must fight back against these criminal scum. If that means supporting assholes like Donald Trump…so be it.
It seems to me that the Social Justice Warriors out there are only interested in promoting “Justice” against White Americans.
When Hate Crimes are committed by Black Americans such as Jussie Smollet, the interest in justice wanes.
It is only when a White Person can be blamed for a “hate crime” that the Social Justice Left crawls out from under their rocks.
If a Black Male attacks and kills an elderly Asian Gent, no one cares.
If a Black Male fakes a hate crime against himself and blames it on White people, no one cares.
If that is the case, why should I care that anyone is acted against in a hateful manner. I still do. I am still concerned about all of these crimes. Yet, I ask why should I care when it would seem that Hate Crime legislation is seemingly designed to target only White Americans.
Why are [some, not all,] Black American of the Social Justice variety so insecure that they must always call themselves Kings and Queens?
What if I said “White Kings built the NBA”? The social justice freaks of the internet would lose their minds. Yes, they would. LMAO
OH NO! Waht FrAh – gel – itt- eye!!!
If you are going to change the NBA Logo, it should be altered to shadow Michael Jordan or Bill Russell.
Both! More accomplished than Kobe Bryant.
I’ve no problem with it being changed to Kobe. That’s me. I liked Kobe and Jordan and don’t mind Lebron so much. Even if he is a whiny, political naif who doesn’t want to get into “word or sentence feuds” after he has entered into DEBATES about subjects of which he is woefully ignorant because he wants to remain ignorant in order to maintain that mantle of Social Justice Warriory-ism no matter how many Uighur die at the hands of Chinese Communism in order for him to continue to profit off of NBA China.
Kobe was a bit polarizing in his day. People don’t remember that. He wasn’t as popular in his day as Michael Jordan. He wasn’t as accomplished as Jordan. He was a Great. That cannot be denied. He damned sure was. I loved Kobe. Love Shaq a bit more. It’s just that Michael Jordan made the NBA what it is today. There will never be another Jordan. Jordan was universal. Kobe was planetary. A subtle difference but a difference nonetheless.
One should never forget, though, that the two players that made the NBA what it is today were Magic and Bird. That rivalry, that play, those games starting with the ’79 NCAA Championship gave the NBA the boost that it needed to springboard into the future of what the NBA is today. The NBA that exists today is not possible without those two players. One Black. One White. A kind of mirror of American society and the fans that watch the games and make possible those huge salaries that make it possible for Kyrie Irving to feel like a King.
Bill Russell was the greatest Player of All Time. He was Mister NBA before that even became a thing.
My vote for the logo? If we’re going to change it because we must have a Black NBA guy over a White NBA guy (and that is kinda racist but it’s ok because it’s cool to be racist against the old Crackalacka), it should be one of those guys – Jordan or Russell. And let’s not kid ourselves. This is a racial thing. Pure and simple. NBA is played by majority Black Athletes for a majority White audience. This is all about race. I sometimes wonder if some of these folks won’t stop until there is no White audience. Then what? How do those KINGLY salaries get paid when White America feels that the NBA is no longer their game to watch? That they are no longer welcome.
At any rate, if they must change the NBA Logo, I’m for Jordan. Jordan was IT! Jordan was THE number one reason that THE GAME gained universal appeal across the world. Jordan was the Global Phenomenon. Kobe…not so much.
Everyone who has come and will come after MJ will be compared to MJ. Period. 6 Finals. 6 Rings. No Game 7s.
Even now. Years after his retirement. They don’t ask who is greater Lebron or Kobe. They asked who was greater Kobe or MJ. Now, they ask who is the greatest? Lebron or MJ.
P.S. I have two questions for [not all but] some of the (Social Justice) Black Americans:
1. Do they realize that there are actual Black Kings extant in this world at this moment? HINT: They’re in Africa. 2. Do they realize that, in the past, Black (aka African) Kings sold Africans into Slavery to Europeans, Arabs, Asians and other Africans?
The woman who wants the Government (i.e., The State) to run your Health Care is surprised that the Government failed and killed people. She wants an investigation. An investigation that will surely absolve the government of all responsibility. For there is rarely, if ever, a case where the Government investigates itself and finds itself culpable.
This is what you can expect with State run Health Care: Inefficiency, Incompetence and YOU, the Citizen, as victim.
AOC is a victim. She’ll always be a victim. This is all she understands. She wants to make you a victim.
There is no transparency in governance. This is a lie.
Seems to me, we are going backwards in race relations.
The goal was to integrate and to have skin color become meaningless.
I’m told that I shouldn’t judge people based upon their skin color and I do not do this. I do judge based upon accents, though. lol
So…no judgment based upon skin color.
Yet, I still see an ever expanding set of distinctions for awards based solely upon color.
Black Engineer of the Year Award Black Athlete of the Year Award Black Entertainer of the Year Award
Is there something about engineering that is specific to the color a person’s skin?
I know what the reaction would be if some organization created a White Engineer of the Year Award. It would be derided as racist, WHITE SUPREMACISTS, horrific…the organization would be boycotted, canceled and much gnashing of teeth and great lamentations to the heavens would be set upon the idiotic social media world and by those minions who live their life electronically and no where else.
I remember an interview with Barry Gordy from the 70s. He said something to the effect that the goal of Motown was not to produce the Best Black Entertainers or the Best Black Music. His goal was to produce the BEST MUSIC and BEST ENTERTAINERS in the world.
According to racial equality activist Richard Lapchick, the NBA in 2020 was composed of 74.2 percent black players, 16.9 percent white players, 2.2 percent Latino players of any race, and 0.4 percent Asian players.
Since the NBA is a majority Black American Organization, are we going to start giving special awards to the NBA’s minority communities?
Best Asian Male Athlete Best LGBTQ+ Non-European Male Athlete Best Athlete of European Descent Best International Athlete Best Arab Athlete Best Chinese Athlete Best Indian Athlete Best Han Chinese Athlete Best Southeast Asian Athlete Best Atheist Athlete Best Muslim Athlete Best Mormon Athlete Best Yazidi Athlete Best Armenian Athlete Best Indo-Aryan Athlete Best Pacific Islander Athlete Best Native American Athlete
NOTE: I purposely left out any mention of White so as not to be called a White Supremacist. That is the only skin color that, apparently, cannot be mentioned without much angst amongst the minions of the social media world.
I have no issue with BLM as a movement. The loose organization that wants Blacks to be treated with respect by Police. I’ve got too many Black friends and I’ve researched Police and LEO corruption a good deal. I know there are issues with Police. I do not completely agree with the BLM movement and believe that it is inherently divisive and, often, achieves much the opposite of its intent. That said, I understand the appeal of the name based on the history of Black Americans in the US.
That said, the organization known as BLM is marxist scum.
It’s easy to conflate the two and difficult to separate them.
It’s a difficult conundrum for young Black Americans and, really, any Black American.
And it’s all too easy for non-Black Americans to dismiss the issue. It is especially easy for White Americans who don’t actually interact with Black Americans except on a superficial level such as being a fan of Kentucky.
Most White Americans have very little interaction with Black Americans. It’s not anyone’s fault. It just is. The average White American is clueless as to the Black experience in America. They know only what they see on TV or read on social media and all of that is caricature and some level of hyperbole.
“I could have done it today, but I’m giving these guys that are in front of him the room that they need to be able to miss shots,” Calipari said.
He said that!
When asked why he isn’t giving more PT to Dontiae Allen. Allen, who average 40 plus in high school and redshirted last year, has been glued to the pine this year. Allen will be another in a long line of transfers out of the program who go on to become scoring threats at places like UCLA, Arizona and Illinois.
Why? Because Cal won’t play or develop his non Five Star players.
And that has led the Kentucky Wildcats program to where we are today.
1 win against a nobody and 4 losses against real competition and 1 loss to Richmond. Thank the Gods the Detroit Mercy game was mercifully canceled. Cal’s Golden Boys may have been given the room they need to lose that game as well. Kentucky may not win another game this year. This team would probably lose to Robert Morris. This team is worse than the Gillispie teams. Cal has lost his way.
And Cal will spend all year spewing stupidity such as that above and wondering why his program has not continuity.
Another year like this and I’ll be ready to part ways with Cal.
No, I don’t think that COVID 19 is not real. It is. It’s real.
That said, it is a Leftist Scam.
It was a biological weapon used by the Left against that idiot Trump who never quite understood that positivity would be used against him. Trump never understood that no matter what happened, no matter how many people died, the Left MSM was going to blame him.
98+ percent of the population will never be affected physically by COVID 19. However, the Democrats made sure that COVID would affect negatively every living human being in America.
Democrats are the greatest evil in the history of mankind.
