“Whites Only” Basketball Team Announced In Georgia

Damn those street ball style colored kids! Oh, wait...

You can’t make this stuff up:

The Augusta Chronicle reported on Tuesday that the All-American Basketball Alliance plans to kick off its inaugural season in June and hopes that Augusta will be one of 12 cities to host teams.

But here’s the kicker: According to a press release the newspaper and other Augusta media outlets received from the new league, “only players that are natural-born United State citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league.”

That’s right. [Don “Moose”] Lewis, who calls himself  the commissioner of the AABA, will exclude blacks and all foreigners from his new league, which the newspaper said will be based in Atlanta.

According to the Chronicle, Lewis said he wants to emphasize “fundamental basketball” instead of “street ball” played by “people of color.”

“There’s nothing hatred about what we’re doing,” Lewis told the paper. “I don’t hate anyone of color.”

Oh, well there you have it. He doesn’t hate the colored folk. Phew! For a minute there he had me worried! How is this possible in 2010? That some imbecile can arbitrarily decide to exclude all persons of color from his league? He offered another reason, too:

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?

Word. He’s not racist at all. I seriously hope this league gets stopped dead in its tracks. This should be offense to both black and whites alike, at least the ones that live in the 21st century. This is a blatantly racist dolt who obviously still thinks segregation is the law of the land. I would hope the people of Augusta disagree.

You know what would be sweet? If white “street ball” players like Jason “White Chocolate” Williams or Grayson “The Professor” Boucher signed up for this league and did some crazy street ball shit ad nauseum. I wonder what Mr. Lewis would have to say then?

Man Slaps Somebody Else’s Crying Kid

with 4 comments

Only In Georgia the South the U.S. Ok, this isn’t cool anywhere:

A Gwinnett County man is in custody accused of slapping a stranger’s crying toddler in a Stone Mountain Wal-Mart on Monday.

The mother of the 2-year-old child told police that both were walking in the aisles of the Rockbridge Road store when Roger Stephens, 61, approached and said “if you don’t shut that baby up, I will shut her up for you,” according to a police report.

A few moments later, in another aisle, Stephens grabbed the 2-year-old and slapped her across the face four or five times, according to the report.

Stephens then told the mom, “See, I told you I would shut her up,” according to the report.

child_slap_insideAre you effing kidding me? Where I’m from, some folks even object when teachers yell at their out-of-control youngins in school. So, to say the least, this is a dramatically different lane than I’m used to hearing about. Slapping some stranger’s kid? Really? I can’t imagine anything more disrespectful. I’m surprised mom-dukes didn’t hit the gun aisle of Wal-Mart and put one in his chest. Yep, Wal-Mart’s have gun-aisles down here.
