The All-American Basketball League has announced that they are planning to launch a 12-team league which will include only white, American-born players. What? Excuse me? What century is this? Who is the commissioner? David Duke.
This absurd league claims in a statement to news agencies: "Only players that are natural-born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league."
Of course the imbeciles behind this atrocity deny their obvious racism. In a statement to the August Chronicle a player said, "There’s nothing hatred about what we’re doing. I don’t hate anyone of color. But people of white American-born citizens are in the minority now. Here’s a league for white players to play fundamental basketball, which they like." Oh, now I get it. LeBron, Kobe, Dwight and the like don't understand the fundamentals of basketball. (Please convert text to "sarcasm font.")
I promise that I will keep you posted if this idiotic league ever actually gets off the ground so we can see who is supporting it and boycott any sponsors they may have brought on board.
They should hire me to write some of their PR quotes: "I don't have anything against people of color, I just don't want them playing with my balls."
What they should have done was create a new league called the "Crappy Player League." Then, odds are, it would have turned out to be an all-white team.
