Skip to comments.'Whites Only' Basketball League Proposed
Posted on 01/22/2010 9:03:26 AM PST by SonnyBubba
The man behind a controversial whites-only professional basketball league defended his position Thursday. Don "Moose" Lewis' proposed new league has one major requirement for participation. Players in the league must be Caucasian. Lewis said the league was far from racist.
"It's all white, U.S. citizens [who were born] white," said Lewis.
The Atlanta boxing and wrestling promoter said his All-American Basketball Alliance will have teams in several southern cities and start in June.

Stupid idea...and racist, IMO
Good luck with that.
OK, I’ll be the first to say it:
We’re looking at final game scores like 12-8.
The basket will be at 8 feet! (snort)
Be sure to have a playoff with an African American team. Expect to get your ass kicked.
So is the black caucus but they’re celebrated for their lack of diversity.
If white people want to be around other white people why not just let them be? I’m sure they’ll be harrassed and picketed. What is it libs say about changing the channel if you don’t like prime time soft porn? Well, if you don’t like it don’t buy a ticket.
The president of the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP said that type of nostalgia is exactly what the country doesn't need.
"We fought so long to be able to get African-Americans in the major sports, now to return to all white play is ridiculous," said Dr. R.L. White.
Hmmmm...., an all white league that isn't racist and a black NCAAP leader named White. This is all too delicious....
All they have to do is argue for racial quotas and affirmative action.
That would ensure the NFL,NBA,etc, have the direct proportion of players according to race.
Meaning of course the NBA and NFL wouldn`t be 80% black anymore :-)
An idea this stupid could only come from an EMOcrat.
It's brilliant political theater.
All other groups (including blacks) have activities and/or contests that include only memmbers of that race, I see no problem with this.
It was a hoax, spoof!!!
The guy put it out on Martin Luther King Day!!!!
I know it sounds very silly.
This won’t get off the ground but it does demonstrate further the hypocrisy of race in this country
“Were looking at final game scores like 12-8.”
Also, guess we will see the return of the Bob Cousy two handed set shot and the Rick Berry granny free shot. probably will wear those real short fruity looking shorts with the socks up to their knees. What a treat....
Better idea: Have an open league with a height restriction of 5’11”...
Are there enough persons from the Caucus region who can even PLAY well?
You got it right. As repugnant as this might be, it’s their business. Let these sad, pathetic people alone.
If you are white, but you play like a black guy (eg. Jason Williams), does that disqualify you?
Seems some in the media persist in pushing stereotypes.
Made me glad to see the Houston Rockets beat the NY Nicks in the championship YEARS ago (I was there and yes I spotted Spike Lee and Bob Costas yucking it up before the game began).
After living through the affirmative action crap my whole life, I like the “finger in your eye” aspect of it.
I must admit it would be refreshing to see interviews with pro basketball players who don’t have a rap sheet, aren’t carrying weapons, no paternity cases, and can articulate two sentences consecutively.
Hmmm.. Maybe they will play basketball instead of “thugball”
That’s not a bad idea.
But I’d rather see a league where the sum heighth of the players on the court can’t can’t exceed 30 feet.
So you could have a 6’4 center, Two 6’1 forwards and two guards who are 5’9.
Yeah, because white athletes never get into trouble. /s
The funny thing is the number of FReepers who have taken this seriously, when it’s obviously a hoax, an intentional dig on MLK day.
It would be more like basketball in the 50's. It was a different style then. The set shot was alive and well and the jump shot was the latest craze. People actually thought Bob Cousy was one of the great guards of all time. There was much less pushing and shoving and even the best players had nothing like the pure athletic skills of today's players. But it was still fun and it made you all the more appreciative as you watched the emerging class of great ball players like Dr. J, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and couple of white guys named Jerry West and Larry Bird.
No more racist than all of the black and Latino special interest groups such as the black caucus.
Anyone ever heard of the TV channel BET?
How come that’s OK?
How about White Entertainment Network.
How about the Puerto Rican Day parade in NY.
Can we have a Caucasian Day parade in NY?
If you want to change the “complexion” of sports, just stop the systematic redistribution of wealth. Entertainment reflects the tastes of those spending the money, and thanks to government entitlements and mandates, the “poor” people are the ones with money to spend.
The same principle applies to television programming, shoes, and just about everything else that can be bought.
Solutions can be so simple.
I can’t stop laughing at that.
What makes the whites think the blacks want to play basketball with them. White guys can’t jump. This is racist.
Wisdom of youth!!!
Are you saying all black people have two left hands?
This whole article is a fraud, a hoax. This so-called Basketball Association doesn’t even have a web site.
This is an April Fools prank.
“How come thats OK?”
Its not OK, but if you complain you are called a racist, so you don’t complain. People have to overcome their fear of the ‘R’ word.
That was my point. thanks
Trying hard to rememebr the last white NBA player who made national news for alcohol, drugs, weapons, rape, paternity or murder.
On whose team would 0bama play????
That is a keeper, for sure.
This is a monumentally stupid idea, and a publicity stunt. The schmuck that proposed this gets what he deserves.
And they shouldn’t be...
Maybe it’s not ‘racist’, I don’t know...I just think it’s stupid. I mean, it’s a sport and anyone should be allowed to play. Why whites only? Just because blacks or latinos have their own clubs, doesn’t make theirs any more right...they are just as stupid. *IMO
