But that won’t matter in the All-American Basketball Alliance. Because only “all-American” white guys are allowed to play:
“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.” He pointed out recent incidents in the NBA, including Gilbert Arenas’ indefinite suspension after bringing guns into the Washington Wizards locker room, as examples of fans’ dissatisfaction with the way current professional sports are run.
Alright, there have been so many unsupported charges of racism lately (including Olbermann call Massachusetts voters racist for electing Brown) that the word is losing all meaning and impact. So folks, just in case you forgot what “real racism” looks like, this league is it.

Yep, that’s about right.
