Are the Pacers too White?

Postby jlm53089 » Wed Jul 08, 2009 5:37 pm

So I am sitting here watching PTI, and first "Headline" is...
Are the Pacers too White?

How is that not racist, could they say are the Bulls too Black?
Seriously speaking, why would these even be a discussion?
Why point out that there are white people on a basketball team?

Its like the Rudy rule in the NFL, if you dont interview a black candidate you get in trouble.
But BAM the Buccaneers hire Raheem Morris, without interviewing a white candidate.
Do you see the NAAWP up in arms? No.

I just think its sad it comes to this, and why does it even have to be asked?

Maybe they should say the Pacers are not black enough? Is that more acceptable?

No. Nothing should be said.
Why does it even need to be a topic?

Wouldn't they want to draft players that can jump?

I approve of the Birdman and Tony Parker but those are the only white players that I like.

Not only is Tony Parker not white but he also doesn't jump very high. Awful reference. :-°
