Posted on 05/06/2014 5:35:11 PM PDT by PaulCruz2016
Basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said Sunday that white Americans so disregard the ongoing existence of racism that theyre more likely to believe in ghosts.
More whites believe in ghosts than believe in racism, Abdul-Jabbar, a former center for the Los Angeles Lakers, told ABC News George Stephanopoulos on Sunday. Thats why we have shows like Ghostbusters and dont have shows like Racistbuster. You know, its something thats still part of our culture and people hold on to some of these ideas and practices just out of habit and saying that, well, thats the way it always was. But things have to change.

Getting real, real tired of the constant race-baiting. Real tired.
I wonder if Kareem also believes in blacks being racist..because I see FAR more blacks being racist against whites than the other way around, that is something you never hear about in the media
If you believe in Jesus, you believe in the Holy Ghost.
How many black people believe in ghosts?
How many hispanics?
How many muslims?
This article is racist.
I believe in racist ghosts
The old talking point is that blacks cannot be racist because they don’t have the power structure to do anything with their prejudicial views.
Tell that to President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder...
Given that the name used as point of origin for the bad pun was Ghostbusters...ome would think that RacistBusters...plural would be more “appropriate”.
RacistBusters..starring Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson perhaps!??
that ought to be a BLOCKBUSTER!!!
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, born Ferdinand Lewis Alcindor, Jr is now going to educate everyone on racism you all.
And more blacks believe in ghosts than whites do
I gave up. You win. I’m a racist. What now?
Funny how all of the old has beens who made a killing living in America are oozing out of the woodwork to shoot off their big mouth. KMA Jabber. I always thought you were a bum.
His definition of racism is racist itself because he is only considering anti black racism.
Lots of whites believe in racism. Anti white racism. They see it all the time. In racist affirmative action laws, black on white racially motivated violence in the schools, on the streets on public transportation, in the workplace and even in their own homes. And that is just the short list.
Some people are relentlessly determined to play the victim.
Blacks are the victims, that is what they are told over and over again, that is why they can get away with knockout games and other crimes..that is why a few days ago some woman went to some convenience store and demanded something for free because of “Slavery” when the idiot probably has no clue what the word even means..all they know is gimme gimme gimme..If that’s the case, since I’m Jewish, can I go into a German store and demand free stuff because of the Holocaust?
No KAJ,it’s part of YOUR culture.
Ghost, isn’t that a racist term for a white person?
Bingo!! That’s it, the belief in Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost!
I believe in the Holy Ghost, and I don’t believe in racism, so I guess he’s right. Stereotyping is a natural part of our survival instinct, we are designed to make rapid assessments based on the facts at hand. If those assessments are sometimes inaccurate, too generalized, or hurt someones feelings it does not mean they are not based on facts and real experiences.
We have a racist half black President who has done more harm to racial equality than the last 50 years of race baiters.
My wife was followed and taunted by two grown !@#$%^& the other day while taking a walk around our mostly white middle class neighborhood.
Racism is alive and well. So long as !@#$%^& keep up their thug-life-BS and I keep having to carry in case some F!@#$ng bonehead starts some !@#$, they’re never going to get anywhere.
I agree. Tired of their woe-is-me wrongheaded fakery and thug-life !@#$.
Me too. It's all just become white noise.
So how many blacks believe in ghosts vs racism?
Wonder how much he knows....
I could give a few anecdotal situations/experiences.
But I agree.
"Since I joined these men, I've seen **** that'll turn you white."
Can anyone answer this for me? Just WHAT are racists supposed to do be doing with their racism anyway? Okay, so someone's a racist. What follows? I've never quite gotten how what someone thinks about another race is supposed to play out.
My parents, teachers, neighbors and my church raised me to believe that Jesus came for all people.
My Constitution reinforces the concept that all men are created equal in the eyes of God, Roe v Wade and cultural acceptance and eventual rejection of slavery enlighten us to the fact that the supreme court can and does get it wrong even on big issues
Years working in hospitals, in upper Manhattan and in the military bring to light the fact that there is racism.
It is hateful, ignorant, vengeful, insidious, sabotaging and jealous. it is born of ignorance.
It is out there. The SEIU incubates it, as did the ‘social justice dept in the military
good one thanks!
Slavery was not ended by Africans...it was ended by Christians.
You got that right! And those I’ve known from Mexico are scared to death of ghosts.
And here I thought Kareem was attempting to make sense last week, guess old habits die hard, right Kareem?

If America blacks believe racism by whites is a bigger drag on their progress than their own failures, then they’re more delusional than people who believe in spirits. The truth is white racism accounts for less than one percent of black problems.
I had a civilized discussion with someone of another race about politics and when she brought up racism and Republicans, I asked her to give me an example of racism she had personally experienced in her lifetime or of someone she knew who had experienced racism.
She couldn’t give me an example of either.
Why not go to an Egyptian eatery in Hollywood, Pasadena or West LA and demand some free halawa as reparations for being held in bondage by Pharaoh?
Of course not, but they use it as an excuse to get whatever they want..slavery was a horrible thing, but for people who didn’t even experience it in their lifetime to use it as a means of getting free stuff and getting victim hood is disgusting to those who actually endured slavery. I did not experience the Holocaust, my grandmother lost a few family members but I never knew them..our neighbor across the street lost her entire family, she still has the stamp on her hand with the numbers, she said she never will forget what happened to her and her family..but I doubt, even with all that she has been through, she would expect the Germans to give her “Free stuff” to make up for it
You know what, I can give that a try and see what happens
...And more people have seen ghosts than have seen MSNBC.
Oh, some more whining from a severely oppressed millionaire?
Sorry to break this to you, but your money makes you one of “them,” Kareem.
Skin color ain’t nothing compared to having the bucks - and you damn well know it.
Lew Alcindor is so...clueless.
As a mostly white American, I’ve never seen a ghost but I have seen a myriad of racist comments like the one made in this article.
Everybody’s got to believe in something - I believe I’ll have another beer...
However, slavery was started by Africans: Anthony Johnson enslaved John Casor. That’s right. The first black slave was enslaved by another black man duringa tiem when slavery wasn’t legal. Anthony had to sue in court to get Casor to be his slave.
