Just another bunch of people trying to cause more trouble.

N.A.A.C.P. do this study? Or did the Bush cabinet do it?

i wouldn't doubt that more fouls are called on black players than white, some of these white boys aren't nearly as aggressive.

hasn't that always been the knock on euro-guys?

playing basketball on a court in a city isn't exactly the same as playing at a YMCA in the suburbs

You know, it's interesting... th guy who did the study isn't saying that the refs are racist in a "true" sense of racism....

What he's saying is that because basketball has a ton of bang-bang calls, the race of a player might affect the way the play "looks" to a referee, not that they're trying to "screw the black man"

Is it possible they call more dancing fouls on the white players as well?


I always smile whenever this gets replayed on Sportscenter :-)
