This Week in Blackness: Whites-Only Basketball


We are very pleased to see Elon James White maintaining his promise to deliver a weekly diatribe on Blackness. The episode this week focused on issues such as 'whites-only' basketball league and unlimited corporate contributions.



What are your thoughts on the basketball league? or the recent Supreme Court ruling?

I don't care if there's an all White basketball league. Unless there's a whole lot of $$$$$s backing it-I think it will not be a staple in the American sports line up. If it is-oh well.

I agree with Ms Lady Deb, I don't care at all. I think it is actually funny! Who is going to watch it, who's going to back it? Not BLACK PEOPLE! So you might ask who cares if black people don't watch it?? Well the fool who had this idea should care, because if there is one thing black people like its sports. If blacks are not watching they are also NOT buying tickets, NOT buying jerseys, NOT buying over priced sneakers, NOT eating or drinking anything that this all white league is endorsing. So hmmm, I'm not sure if that dude really thought this thing through. (not to mention even though black players have lost there minds they are sometimes entertaining!) So an all white league... yea, whatever! LOL!

Lady D and Regina - All of your points are well taken. It boggles my mind that any city's mayor or city council would be pleased to have this league opening up shop. I would think that the city would experience a big backlash from their Black population and politicians...
