Some bigot in Augusta, GA has decided that the black man has stolen the game of basketball from him and turned it into a sport of savages grabbing their crotches. So he’s forming a league to save the game.
The All-American Basketball Alliance announced in a news release Sunday evening that it intends to start its inaugural season in June and hopes Augusta will be one of 12 cities with a team.
“Only players that are natural born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league,” the statement said.
…Don “Moose” Lewis, the commissioner of the AABA, said the reasoning behind the league’s roster restrictions is not racism.
“There’s nothing hatred about what we’re doing,” he said. “I don’t hate anyone of color. But people of white, American-born citizens are in the minority now. Here’s a league for white players to play fundamental basketball, which they like.” Lewis said he wants to emphasize fundamental basketball instead of “street-ball” played by “people of color.”
“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 said. “That’s the culture today, and in a free country we should have the right to move ourselves in a better direction.”
Now I have to admit that I’m no basketball fan, but I hardly imagine that there would be any fans in the stands (unless they were in trench coats) if it was a free-for-all of self-fondling on the court.
Second, how do these bigots verify “race,” for instance, if the person can conceivably “pass?” Does an octaroon make the cut, or is that too black?
The would be the first thing I would do to corrupt this preposterous jackassery and send someone who could pass for white to try out for a team.
Some of the comments at the article page are hilarious. See a few below the fold.
Copenhaver is a wimp and pityful excuse for a leader,so who cares what he will support. Anything that is exclusively white has to be racist doesn’t it. Liberals can’t make it on thier own.

I wonder if the all white team will have confederate uniforms, or if they will play in their robes without the hoods?

Moose is a Klan leader he is going to use this is a tool to brain wash these young men. I wonder if he would allow a multi racial cheerleading squad, wouldn’t that be a site to see them cheering for an all white team. Who appointed him commisioner, the grand wizard? OMG LOL. He isn’t racist how old is this man he must be in his 50s.

The more Moose get’s turned down the Angrier, hateful, spiteful, detestably he will become, when all this boils over for him, from many failed attempts and denials from cities and death threats (so he says) he is going to use this as wood for a fire to ignite a rally with and for the hate groups who loves and feed on this kinda stuff. He’s going to scream from the top of his lungs this white separatist racist dogma “They want let us have an all white basketball team” (which is basically what he’s trying to do anyway atleast he’s not subtle with it). And they will come and the numbers will grow. This is NOTHING BUT a recruiting tool for the KKK, Aryans, Nazi lovers etc.

Notreally, won’t is a contraction for will not. Want means desire. Trying to interchange them is racially insensitive.

Why in the heck would white guys want to play basketball? And who in the heck would go and watch such a production? Hey, I don’t care that they only want whites, just like I could care less about blacks having things that are exclusively black. But this particular issue appears to be some kind of stunt because there is no way that this is something that could succeed. What’s next? An all black ice hockey league?

We need team names: The Augusta Supremacists. The Augusta Grand Wizards. Not really catchy.

As many of you know we have the NAACP, No whites, We have the United Negro College Fund, no whites, We have Miss Black America, no whites, We have Quanza, no whites, so now when someone describes the new league for Whites, everyone calls this person a racist!!!! though I feel the result will cause a stir as everyone see’s this as a slap to the Non-white majority, I feel this person has a right to promote this. Gee wonder if someone started the Augusta Hispanic soccer league would this raise the same Racist remarks.. Of course not, because repressed folks are the only ones who can do this….
