I played AAU basketball, and hated it (high school basketball was much better). The game was completely the "Black" version of basketball, as instead of being a team-oriented game - with set plays, screens, pick and rolls, and outstanding shooting - it was the street version found in the ghettos of America (or at midnight...

You can make a donation through the PayPal link in the upper left-hand corner or contact us and we'll you send PO Box information. Or purchase Hollywood in Blackface or SBPDL Year One from Amazon.com in either book or Kindle... Read More
We write a lot about sports here. We do this because, quite simply, sports offered the primary mechanism for the acceptance of Black integration into mainstream American life to occur. Black athletic heroes in football did more to integrate the South then anything Martin Luther King Jr. every could have said. Those were the words... Read More
Remember the article on Auburn and the Opiate of America? Consider this the basketball version of that piece. The U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has inadvertently shown the Disingenuous White Liberal (DWL) hand and, worse, illustrated that impeding any part of the United States' sprint to ruin will be greeted with howls of protest....

I recently watched the film Hoosiers again. You know, the high school basketball film starring Gene Hackman that Spike Lee said made him "uncomfortable" when he watched it. One day that movie will be banned, because it fails to show sufficient empathy for the Black plight. Regardless, March Madness is upon us. Even President Obama... Read More
ESPN must be commended for the excellent 30 for 30 series that they have aired for the past two years. The U is an outstanding documentary about the criminals, felons, and thugs who played on the University of Miami football team in the 1980s and helped establish the culture of black players flamboyantly celebrating every...

Editors Note: I am Number Four was exactly like we said it would be two weeks ago.An all-white cast in which white people are the heroes, American flags in virtually every scene, and not one non-white had a speaking part.American flags in virtually every scene and not one non-white had a speaking part. It was... Read More
Basketball, as Bill Simmons makes clear in his tome The Big Book of Basketball, is a Black sport. Time magazine wrote this in 1977: Black dominance in basketball (and the slow integration of college football, which became a rampaging flood) led to the destruction of the idea of white supremacy. The notion of a starting... Read More
Stop. Stop now. Don't umpire or referee anymore: Above, you can view the most shocking video we’ve seen thus far today. It depicts a sequence from a recent high school basketball game in Florida between DeSoto County and Port Charlotte. For the first 1:20 of the video, absolutely nothing out of the ordinary happens. Then,... Read More
Michael Oher. Few names can be uttered that bring more ecstasy to the mind of white people than this adopted Black individual who went on to stardom at Ole Miss and eventual National Football League (NFL) fame. Proof for some, that nurture is a far more potent ally than nature as Michael Oher was adopted... Read More
Hollywood dominates American life. Regional culture is gone, replaced with a monoculture from Los Angeles that governs the entertainment we watch and thus, the opinions we possess. A gatekeeper with such power that the manipulation of minds is but a film away, Hollywood reigns over the culture in an impenetrable citadel of influence no dictator... Read More
It is said Nero fiddled while Rome Burned. Whether veracious or merely an apocryphal tale, the phrase has come to symbolize a leaders decision to pursue trivial matters and engage in gross inattentiveness to important issues. Barack Hussein Obama. Mein Obama, the anointed-deity who could walk upon water was the beneficiary of a Nobel Peace... Read More
Duke Basketball. Just the name alone conjures an air of sophistication and haughtiness among basketball enthusiasts. Duke Hating, is of course, a national past-time. Basketball, as Bill Simmons makes clear in his monumental tome The Book of Basketball, is a Black game (here is an interview with the basketball guru): Why do you think race... Read More
What was it we once said about Black people and riotless High School basketball games? Oh, that's right. They're included in the Stuff Black People Don't Like. There is a reason that 88 percent of the white vote went to John McCain in the 2008 presidential election. White people in Alabama have seen the once... Read More
It has been stated many times that white men can’t jump. This generally accepted fact has an equally acknowledged truth that everyone knows, but few admit publicly: Black people can jump, which is punctuated by the nearly 80 percent of NBA players being of primary African descent. However, to admit that white people might be... Read More
Black people seem to have no problem with gun violence. Inexplicably, gun violence seems to pervade communities as diverse as the cities of Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas, Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington DC. The common denominator among all of these cities is – besides a populace brimming with disingenuous white liberals – Black people committing high... Read More
A previous entry pontificated upon Black people and their love of rioting. Black people do not like to be out-rioted. Black people love basketball as the sport offers the chance for Black people to showcase their running, jumping and ball handling skills to audiences large or small. From the Harlem Globetrotters to the any National... Read More
