No, of course not. Whites are focused on things that matter more, getting educated, building and maintaining wealth. They leave the entertaining to Negros and foreigners.
Have you attended a professional basketball game lately. it is a sea of whiteness. Especially in the seats where you can actually see the game.
The owners, who are virtually all white American men, are interested in winning and they take the best players. They don't care what color they are or where they are from. Professional athletics is perhaps only place in America, where talent matters most.
Unfortunately professional athletics, entertainment in general, is viewed by Black people as the best way to become wealthy. A poor kid from the Dominican Republic and come here and play baseball--he doesn't even have to be able to speak English--and become a millionaire. We used to have a lot of Black Americans playing baseball. Why not inquire about a quota for Black baseball, Ice Hockey, or Tennis Players?
Don't worry white folks will be fine, even when the NBA has nothing but foreign players in it.
Black athletes like LeBron James, with all of their fame and fortune, are regularly slapped down and reminded that, gladiator or not, you're still a "nigger".
Don't worry, white people. When it comes to your male athletes, there's still tennis.
That white guy in the video seems to care. And wants to be a beacon for other short white kids.
Wealthy white people don't care about this. The aspire to own the teams. We aspire the work for them. While the issue was raised as a racial one. It is really one of class (it always is).
Poor white people locked out of factory jobs, farm jobs, and now the NBA. No one really cares. Jerry West clearly doesn't. This is why Trump is appealing to poor whites; he give voice to their rage,
Do wealthy Black People care about this
No wealthy Black people don't care about this either; if asked they will say they care because they know the "right" answer but fundamentally they don't they care.
Honestly, do you even really care?
I posted it. It is an interesting topic. I think its fascinating and is harbinger of a global change in the power structure. What's that movie where Bill Nunn wanted to be a black hockey player.
But do you really care about to the number of white boys in the NBA?
Oh yeah @Cynique, even tennis has been dominated for years by non Americans. When was the last time you heard of a White Male American winning a major? Can you name 3 American professional tennis players who are currently playing?
Trump supporters care.
Really? I thought all they cared about was working in the coal mines, kicking Mexicans out of the country, beer, and reading fake news on Twitter.
I hear Racist are emboldened. And Iam not in the continental United States.
Neither am I. I live in New York City.
There are some racist that get incensed when the object of their derision is doing better than they are currently.
Do you remember when white factory workers bought Japanese cars to set them on fire. It was around the time that Japan started making good cars and supplanted Detroit.
I have not heard any real complaining from "Joe six pack." about the lack of white boys in sports. Again, they want to win, be entertained, get tribal with their boys, and place wagers. Nobody is too racist to give that up. It could be 100% Black and foreign.
Now if Negroes and foreigners start dominating ownership they way they dominate the playing field I think we see racism rear it's ugly head, but at the rate things are going we are content just being the Million Dollar Slaves.
Now wait until foreigners start to surpass Black folks then you'll here some real bitching and moaning, but it will come from us, and white boys will not care about that either...
Michael Jordan and JayZ
What does the list of those entertainer names mean?
Michael Jordan and JayZ
I can understand the examples of Eminem and Tiger Woods excelling in industries that are predominated by another race.....but I don't undertand the examples of MJ and Jay Z.
Now wait until foreigners start to surpass Black folks
It's already happening in many major cities.
Since the 60s, Black people have become so "satisfied" and apathetic that they've allowed Latinos and Asians to gain economic, political and even demographic power in the United States.
Too many of our people mistakenly believed that because these were "people of color" that they were going to automatically be on our side, but as it turned out many of them were more racist and posed a bigger threat to Black progress than even Whites.
Whites have brought them in largely to replace Black people as the NEW slaves.
Willing to work harder and complain less.
Woods is largely washed up, Eninem is white, Jordan is retired, Jay is still running around but rather than try to figure out what Del means lets just wait for him to elaborate. You know dude likes to speak in riddles
Del what is Jay Z's percent ownership of the Brooklyn Nets?
