WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: urge NBA commissioner to issue lifetime ban for Carmelo Anthony and agent Jay-Z for wearing black racist medallions;
Pursuant to the action of NBA Commissioner Adam Silver in the lifetime ban of Clippers' owner Donald Sterling, Silver should be urged by the White House to stop all aspects of racism, including those by black racists. The rapper known as Jay-Z was a former part owner of the Knicks and is now a sports agent. Carmelo Anthony currently plays for the Knicks. Jay-Z was seen wearing a black supremacist medallion in the first row of a Knicks' game. Anthony has also been seen wearing the medallion, which represents the believe that white men are the devil. It is time to end all aspects of racism in the NBA. Each must receive a lifetime ban from Commissioner Silver.

“please sign and let’s cause some trouble “
All due respect FRiend, life is full of trouble without looking for it.
It will find you.
Agreed, they are extremely hypocritical, but it’s nothing new. Only white people are racist./s
You are probably right. Surrendering on this issue is a good idea.
I think they are over playing their hand. One can imagine to be a fly on the wall during a halftime in the NBA.
Good people are sick of the race card, the left has run out of ideas and thats all they have left. That and raising taxes and confiscating guns. None of which is very popular right now with the American people.
The left is imploding of their own weight.
Fools errand. Better to not pay any attention to the game. Let it starve from lack of white viewers.
” - - - stop all aspects of racism - - - “
First I need to have this question answered: “Is it an act of Racism to accuse someone else of being a racist?”
And we definitely need some affirmative action in hiring. The white b-ball players are vastly underrepresented, and prejudice is the only possible reason in a situation like that.
If you are white you are a racist (unless you are a democrat with power) and if you are black your can't be a racist (unless you are a republican, and then you are by default an "uncle Tom" or "aunt Jemimah"). I guess that is confusing too. I'll simplify it further so it's 95% "true".
If you are white you are a racist.
I believe that whoever mentions it first IS the racist.
Many players such as Charles Barkley and outsiders like Spike Lee have stated that the NBA is a ‘black league’ and regularly put down white players. This is blatant racism.
Racism in the NBA must be ended by making it a more multi=culturally diverse community.
Therefore, the NBA should immediately commence an affirmative action program to ensure that all races are represented in proportion to their percentage of the United States demographics. This will insure that Latinos, Asian-Americans, Native Americans and Caucasian Americans find a place on the court—or they should be taken to Court.
While they are at it, they should pursue affirmative action to include all genders, religions and LBGT persons. There is no reason why a Orthodox Jew or burkha-wearing Muslim woman shouldn’t be on a team that plays in a PUBLICLY owned and financed arena.
The NBA goal must be opportunistic equality instead of equal opportunity.
The NBA is over for a lot of thinking people, I suspect. Using what someone says in the privacy of their own home is a step too far.
But then you are saying that blacks are the racists. We all know that blacks can’t be racist. Obviously you need some time in the re-education camp comrade. /s
Well, let’s see who can come up with a private conversation of something caught on tape somewhere. Perhaps even heard at a rock concert or bar. Let’s get it out there.
In my humble opinion Donald Sterling is an obnoxious twit. He is famous for firing (white) head coaches and then refusing to honor their contracts. Because he’s a billionaire, he can outlast his former coaches in legal proceedings which go on for years until the former coach loses what he would have gotten from Sterling, in attorney’s fees. Sterling also funds the NAACP in Los Angeles.
But at the current time, Sterling employs a black head coach (Doc Rivers) and there is only one white player on his team (J.J. Reddick) plus a Eurasian Turk (Hedo Turkoglu), all the rest are black.
The NBA’s actions are akin to a hostile corporate takeover in the rest of the private sector.
Thanks! I now understand how complex Racism has become.
