Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

All White Basketball League

with one comment

Wow!  that was my reaction when I read this article. Apparently, the commissioner of the ABA American Basketball Association is considering starting an all white basketball league. He claimed that there is nothing racist about the fact that he wants to start an all white basketball league. He says that the league will be there for white players to play fundamental basketball which they like. This is just ridiculous starting a league for white simply for them to play fundamental basketball. This doesn’t make any sense to me due to the fact that it can be implied that the commissioner is saying that the other races that plays basketball doesn’t know the fundamentals of the game or the NBA for that matter is not fundamental basketball. Also some people argue that this league is not racist at all because blacks are more athletic than whites and this league would help those white players who have the talent but cannot make it to the NBA because of the black athletes. That’s even more ridiculous because there are many whites in the NBA and many of them have been very successful in the league. This is wrong because it will bring a lot of negatives to the game of basketball and the game doesn’t need that.

  1. so yea, and all white league!! can you say boring!!! I mean how raciest is that?? come on now how many people do you think would want to play in this league for some whites it would probably be no competition. Some people need to grow up and realize some things are unnecessary. If this league gets passed the U.S really needs to reevaluate and realize that racism is getting worst!
