The “White-Only” Basketball League Bans Blacks And Foreigners…So Who Is Going To Be On The Teams???

[picapp align=”center” wrap=”false” link=”term=redneck+games&iid=1334890″ src=”d/2/9/d/Redneck_Games_Kick_40e8.jpg?adImageId=9337904&imageId=1334890″ width=”380″ height=”230″ /]

The All-White basketball league has been announced in Augusta, Georgia.

The new league will have 12 teams in 12 cities made up of all-white, American-born men.The name of the league is officially the All American Basketball League, and it’s foundation is built on racism.

I never knew that the Klan allowed their supporters and members to play basketball…don’t these guys limit themselves to hockey?

The Grand dragon behind this classic idea is Don “Moose” Lewis,who is a boxing and wrestling promoter, and of course,…he has denied that racism was behind him starting a segregated basketball league.[picapp align=”right” wrap=”true” link=”term=redneck+games&iid=695738″ src=”1/0/c/c/74.jpg?adImageId=9337902&imageId=695738″ width=”234″ height=”353″ /]

In fact, this ‘Moose’ character is so ignorant, I will just quote this genius with the words that fell out of his butt….“There’s nothing hatred about what we’re doing,” he told theAugusta Chronicle. “I don’t hate anyone of color. But people of white American-born citizens [sic] are in the minority now. Here’s a league for white players to play fundamental basketball, which they like.”

Lewis told the paper he defines “fundamental basketball” as different from the “street-ball” played by “people of color,” and claimed recent scandals in professional basketball — such as the gun charges dogging theWizardsGilbert Arenas— have made the creation of all-white teams a necessity.

“Would you want to go to the game and worry about a player flipping you off or attacking you in the stands or grabbing their crotch?” he told the paper. “That’s the culture today, and in a free country we should have the right to move ourselves in a better direction.”

So…as I suspected, Moose hates black men, and has made the media stereotype of young black men, a reality that repulses him.

I would like to tell Mr. Moose, that restricting a professional sports team based on race and nationality is patently racist, and him being a bigot, knows that.

The mayor of Augusta, Mayor Deke Copenhaver, expressed his disapproval for the league…“As a sports enthusiast, I have always supported bringing more sporting activities to Augusta,” he said.

“However, in this instance I could not support in good conscience bringing in a team that did not fit with the spirit of inclusiveness that I, along with many others, have worked so hard to foster in our city.”

So….what he is saying is that White men never carry guns,  they definitely do not shoot people in the back, eat people, commit mass murder,or lynch people!!!

The cost of a team is being reported to be $10,000.00!?!

I call for the destruction of this leagues events, wherever they may raise their evil heads.

Basketball, as all sports, should  build sportsmanship, and teamwork among the participants. it should build bridges, and not construct them!

Race or nationality should never be a qualifier to accept or deny players to take partWhy do these racist always want to return our society to the 1940’s?!?…we have been through this already, and we know that it is a failed way to manage a sports team.

Why not revisit the Civil War if this ridiculousness is not stopped…

The players will obviously be mediocre, and any local high school team that’s integrated will  be able to defeat their best team.

This guy is just sick with hatred, and bigotry….
