the most hilarious thing said was "emphasize fundamental basketball instead of "street-ball" played by 'people of color.' ..." that is so dumb how sports always demonize something creative and dynamic as evolving the game....and i also love how many tickets they are gonna sell...lmao!

-------------------------------------------------Name one thing that's "Black only".

i) You're joking, right?

ii) Did you mean to put the speech marks where you did? What you've actually written has a meaning opposite to what I think you meant, judging by context.

"Segregation will arise again, but this time against white people. "

Why, I think that may be the dumbest thing I've ever heard. At least this week.

It's no more and no less racist than all the "black"-only stuff that usually gets praise rather than condemnation, but the lies they're using as excuses for it are as flimsy as wet toilet tissue "

We have the special olympics, the paralympics, and now the white only basketball league. I think its wonderful.

I'm sure black and white people understand that we simply get schooled far too often by black people's progressive basketball skillz. So we need an avenue for playing basketball that won't remind us everygame how much we really do suck at basketball.

For those saying its not racist... it IS! You guys might want to look up the term. Its as racist as a blacks/asians/<insert ethnicity here> only organization is. If something is inaccesible to people based on their race, then it is by definition RACIST.

If it was really about behaviour on court, the criteria would be behaviour on court, not "race". They'd just make a league with specific rules regarding play and behaviour on court. They haven't, so that's not what this league is about.

This was actually made because well, black people are the majority in Basketball.

As a matter of fact, when a recruiter picked more white people then black people, they called him a racist? For what? Picking more white people then black people? So there are supposed to be more black people?

It's all double standards and you all know it.

Segregation will arise again, but this time against white people.

To anyone who has claimed this to be racist, how? How is it, there is BET, blacks only colleges and so on. But because this is a whites only league, it's racist?

I'm not sure if they are doing this because they are racists or out of pity.

"African Americans have BET (black entertainment television)"
They still play Eminem on BET. James Brown had several white guys in his group, playing saxophone and guitar. BET does not discriminate against white people and does not ban them from appearing. They play music and other entertainment that appeals to a predominantly black audience, but they don't discriminate by race. White people are on there sometimes, too.

"African American Only Colleges"

No they don't. They are now called "Historically Black Colleges" because they used to be segregated back when segregation was legal. Now, they admit qualified white students who apply, because not to do so is illegal discrimination. Grambling (a historically black college) had a white guy on their football team, for example.

This is the most racist garbage I've ever seen! Honey, can you put on BET, the MOBO awards are on. I can watch while I fill out my forms for the United Negro College fund so I can re-write the racism laws and stop this 'white pride' since you know it's completely racist, and that 'black pride' obviously isn't.

"As long as their not breaking any laws"

Racial discrimination is breaking the law.
If I don't let black guys play basketball at my gym, but I let white guys play there, it is breaking the law.

There was already a basketball league for players under six feet tall. No one was interested. Because if a person under six feet tall was actually that good, he would already play at the highest level (I am looking at you, Nate Robinson).

Same here. If a white player was any good, he would already play at the highest level. And many do. The NCAA player of the year was Tyler Hansborough, a white guy. He's in the NBA now.

Chris Kaman, Kirk Hinrich, Mike Dunleavy, Nick Collison, Kevin Love - all pretty good white American pro basketball players. They already play in the NBA. They don't need a special league that excludes their competition.
