Please don't shut up after you dribble.

 


A man walks into a bar and asks the bartender why the NBA playoffs isn't on the big screen television. The bartender says that the owner has banned all NBA games in the establishment because of LeBron James and his attitude.

That wasn't a lame attempt at a joke, that is actually happening somewhere in Ohio because some FOX News watching guy objects to an athlete actually speaking his mind (albeit poorly in this case) about an issue of the day. 

Just imagine if some of these folks like the bar owner would actually bring this type of energy and passion into trying to make the world a better place free of bigotry and ignorance. The country would be such a better place. 

LZ Granderson summed up my feelings about this issue perfectly in the following article: 

"The season finale of Marvel’s “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" was released Friday but I’m still processing a statement made in the previous episode: “They will never let a Black man be Captain America.”

I wonder if LeBron James has seen it yet.

Last week the Kid From Akron found himself in the crosshairs of another stick-to-sports maelstrom for posting, then deleting, a tweet about the police shooting of a 16-year-old Black girl in Ohio. From sports debate show hosts to members of Congress, someone from every walk of life seemingly was asking, "Why?"

Why did he post it? Why did he delete it? Fox News did a story about how the other networks weren’t making a big enough deal about it. Opportunistic politicians — representing the proverbial “they” that won’t let a Black man be Captain America — piled on.

“Lebron James truly has a lot of nerve targeting a police officer for doing his job,” Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) wrote on Twitter. “I’m not sure what China has on him, but his constant push for division in this country is obscene.”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said James’ tweet “could certainly be interpreted by some, even, as a call for violence,” a remark echoed on social media by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who posted, “this is disgraceful and dangerous. Is the NBA okay with this? Is Twitter?”

And so we found ourselves in the familiar space of debating more about how LeBron James said something than why he said it.

James’ back story — a literal rags to riches story — should make him the paragon of American exceptionalism embodied by Captain America. But his politics, specifically his tendency to speak out on issues that are important to the Black community, makes him more of a villain than a source of inspiration for conservatives prone to be more upset about tan suits than such hard questions as the atrophied relationship between law enforcement and communities of color.

The controversial, deleted tweet — in which James posted a picture of the white officer who shot and killed 16-year-old Ma'Khia Bryant along with the words “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY” — was inarguably premature. Body cam video appears to show Bryant attacking another teen with a knife seconds before the shots were fired; many consider the officer’s actions justified. Others are skeptical because of years of simmering tension that resulted in Columbus' current search for a new police chief because, according to the city's mayor, the previous one “could not successfully implement the reform and change I expect and that the community demands.”

Those details are germane to the larger issue of this country’s discomfort with Black leadership. And nowhere is that discomfort more evident than in the world of sports.

Which brings me back to that line from “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”

It’s easy to assume “they will never let a Black man be Captain America” was written to reflect a post-George Floyd world, the dangers of “woke culture.” The reality is that subject was approached more than three decades ago: Captain America, Volume I, Issue No. 333. It hit stores in 1987.

Like the current streaming series, the question of "Who will be Captain America’s successor?" is an essential element of the storyline in the comic book. In Issue 333, a committee of military and government officials is debating who should represent American exceptionalism when a Mr. Mathers holds up a headshot.

“I imagine we could also rule out another of Rogers’ friends and ex-partners, Sam Wilson, alias the Falcon,” he starts. “I doubt the country is ready for a Black Captain America.”

The issue hit shelves a few months after longtime Dodgers executive Al Campanis went on ABC’s "Nightline" and infamously said, when asked about the lack of Blacks in leadership positions in baseball, “No, I don't believe it's prejudice. I truly believe that they may not have some of the necessities to be, let's say, a field manager, or perhaps a general manager.”

The interview ignited a firestorm, and Campanis was fired less than 48 hours later. But here’s the rub: When Ken Williams was hired 13 years later as GM — the third Black GM in MLB history — , he said “no n— should run the Chicago WHITE Sox” was painted on the side of his house. More than 20 years later, Derek Jeter is baseball's only Black CEO.

So, did Campanis get canned for the substance of his remarks or for the act of giving voice to them?

It’s not just baseball. In the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport 2020 report, of the 130 athletic director positions at FBS, white men accounted for nearly 77%; nearly 70% of conference commissioners were white men; roughly 84% of football head coaches were white men, who also make up about 59% of assistant coaches as well. Meanwhile the number of football student athletes who were white was less than 35%.

The NFL’s Rooney Rule was enacted in 2003 to compel owners to interview candidates of color for head coaching jobs. How’s that working? The league just hired its first Black team president ever last year and I’m not sure if the Washington Football Team would have selected Jason Wright had Floyd’s murder not sparked a national racial reckoning. (I write this confidently because until Floyd’s death, the team was still comfortable using a racial slur as its nickname.)

It’s my sense many white conservatives prefer Black athletes like James to just play, because they don’t want to be reminded of their Blackness. They want feel-good stories about making it out of the ghetto without talk of why there is a ghetto in the first place. They don’t want discussions about racial inequality blended in with sports because they don’t want discussions about racial inequality anywhere. They pretend “I don’t see color” is a declaration of inclusion, when in fact it’s a denial of the trauma people of color experience regularly.

Instead they lurk in the bushes, waiting to pounce on missteps as a way to stifle larger cultural debates because that’s easier than genuine problem solving.

James' tweet was a mistake. He was linking the circumstances behind one death with that of another without the facts. So, he deleted it, and instead posted about the pain that comes from seeing Black and brown bodies being gunned down by police.

But individuals like Tom Cotton, who is constantly criticizing James about China, aren’t interested in James’ pain, or understanding how the confluence of the Derek Chauvin verdict and a police shooting of a Black girl in a city that has had four similar shootings in the past four months might inspire a rush to judgment. They’re not interested in his Blackness or the brand of leadership it inspires.

He’s not the Captain America they want. The one featured in the first issue punching out Adolf Hitler, as an “America to the rescue” metaphor.

No, LeBron James is allowed to rescue the Lakers.

But anything beyond that is deemed a problem by those not interested in solving the ones he’s talking about." [Article] 

"Just shut up and dribble" is what one right-wingnut told Mr. James to do. 

I'm glad he didn't listen to her.  We need more athletes like LeBron James, not less.

LeBron James is certainly allowed to say whatever he wants and I defend his legal right to say it, but ... I'm not gonna lie: Most of the time, I do honestly wish athletes would just "stick to sports" and keep their opinions to themselves, because usually, their political opinions are awful.

For every LeBron James in the world of sports, there are, like, ten Richie Incognitos. (He's a Trump fan. Obviously.) Or Curt Schillings. Or Gina "being a conservative in America is just like being a Jew in Nazi German" Caranos.

When I need help figuring out candidates and political issues, my go-to expert is not someone who is known for being really good at kicking people.

I think it's very much within their rights for athletes to use the platform they have built for themselves to say whatever they feel needs saying.

Then they are subject to the same warped out as fuck marketplace of ideas as everyone else.

Also, I feel like it takes some goddamn gall for Tom "traitor letter" Cotton to criticize anyone else in the fucking world about expressing their opinions.

And what was so bad about the original tweet, anyway?

Is it really that far beyond the pale to think that shooting people is not the response we want to be paying our police to employ?

I mean, what would have happened had he not shot her?

Perhaps she might have stabbed someone and they might have required medical attention that the policeman could have been arranging for instead of murdering her?

Those are the very questions that need to be answered right now, before any more people are extrajudicially executed on our dime.

Maybe ask the police department of Newark, New Jersey, whose officers didn't fire a single shot in 2020 how they managed to do that.

“And what was so bad about the original tweet, anyway?”

1) It was a little early to weigh in on whether the cop’s actions were justified or not. Often, details revealed later may change people’s view of things. The cop may not have done anything wrong here.

2) Even if the cop was indeed in the wrong, LeBron still chose his words poorly. “You’re next” made it sound a bit like he wanted to see the cop murdered, not prosecuted. I’m sure this is why, upon further reflection, he deleted the tweet.

Perhaps the corpse of the person she stabbed would be requiring undertaker attention, and then the cop’s career would be over for “police inaction” rather than police brutality.

These aren’t always easy decisions.

Strange that people would assume accountability for a police officer is a death threat in the immediate aftermath of a police officer being held accountable by a jury in a court of law.

Also rather strange that a police officer executing a 16 year old Black girl defending herself with a knife is considered justifiable, but a girl standing her ground defending home and family after calling police is not.

Is it your authoritarian slip or your racist slip that is showing?

"Inarguably"...?? So this doesn't go to my choice of place for speaking publicly, Twitter, I'll write to you here.

There was a backdrop to the moment the police rolled up and began body-camming. I would think that someone who KNOWS context is key to understanding ANY event, would understand the body-cam is a video with no context. AND THAT IT WAS PURPOSELY CLOSE TO IMMEDIATELY RELEASED TO REMOVE CONTEXT FROM THE KILLING.

That said, do some searching for the pre-body-cam events. I'll give some clues as to what you - any of you - may find:

1)Bryant was said to have been attacked by at least two adult women.
2) Both Bryant's mother and aunt say it was Bryant who made the initial call to the police.
3) Ohio is a "Stand Your Ground" state.
4) When the police showed up, Ma'Khia Bryant was, literally, standing her ground, protecting herself from further attack.

"Inarguably." Really??

Athletes are tax-paying, voting, Americans too, with the same inalienable rights as every American. They have opinions and life experiences that should be heard. Does Jane Fonda and other activist celebrities simply shut up and stick to acting? I watched One Night in Miami and prayed every celebrity, athlete, author, and everyone who had a public platform will do what Ali, Jim Brown and Sam Cooke did, and use it for more than entertaining.

May James and every Laker speak out, even while dribbling.

James pipped up prematurely and got the situation wrong and that was all it took for magats to drop the topic and attack James instead of police killing children and gun violence. Not that magats needed an excuse to change the subject.

Until moar magats get gunned down, talking about gun control is a losing argument for most citizens.. Magats only argument is for moar weapons in the hands of magats.

A new NBC News poll released finds that 44% of registered voters see President Joe Biden as “very” or “somewhat” liberal, while 42% see him as “moderate.”

In contrast, in April 2009, the NBC News poll found that 59% of registered voters saw Barack Obama as “very” or “somewhat” liberal, while 30% saw him as moderate.

If you're lying about the execution of a child who called the police because she was being attacked and instead of assistance she was murdered in cold blood 22 seconds after the cops' arrival then perhaps you would be better served by being buggered to death by a sheep.

Over here the news says he was with his female companion, and because they are not married his parents are coming to identify the body.

Actually La Perla is a very peaceful place for those that live there. Except for this, you will never read about crimes being committed in there, robberies, aggression, car jackings, murders, or anything criminal, you will never ever see news of any wrongdoings there. Why? because they never call the police they police themselves.

It is a beautiful place to live as it faces the ocean and the old fort. It is prime realty now. There are some beautiful, huge mansions there with pools and the works, and plenty of security cameras, need I say more ;) and that is why you cannot just walk in there if you do not live there. It's like an exclusive gated community actually. But if you have a reason and get permission from the elders, of course you can go in and you will be welcomed, protected and treated like family. But no cellphones please and definitely no shenanigans.

How would this threaten Israel? Do you think it would be a surprise to Iran to learn that Israel is constantly bombing them? It definitely would not.

I also love how Republicans are ranting about how this constitutes “treason.” Even if it were true that Kerry had had this conversation (which he denies), and even if it would in some way have harmed Israel (it wouldn’t), “treason” would imply that in betraying Israel, he had betrayed the United States, and therefore that Israel must officially be the 51st American state.

But Israel is not part of our country, and frankly they’re not even a good ally. I am hard pressed to think of anything they have recently done that benefits the US in any way. This appears to be an entirely one-way relationship, in which we clean up their messes in the Middle East and get zilch in return.

Sucks to be Rudy, I guess. Trump failed to give him one of those blanket pardons before leaving office, so I imagine he’ll be singing like a canary about his former boss’ illegal activities in order to stay out of jail.

President Joe Biden's administration is expected to announce a proposal to ban menthol cigarettes, as well as menthol and flavored cigars
The move would set off a process with the Food and Drug Administration that could take years and would likely be challenged in court
It would be applauded by antismoking and civil rights groups angered by tobacco companies aggressively targeting black people with the product
However, the ACLU, drug legalization and other civil rights group warned it could hurt communities of color due to over policing
The Food and Drug Administration says that 19.5 million people smoke brands of menthol cigarettes
Among black smokers, 85.8 per cent smoke menthols, while menthol smoking only makes up 28.7 per cent of cigarettes white Americans smoke
Massachusetts is the only state to have banned the sale of menthol cigarettes

All these White Right Snowflakes and Trumptards are hilarious unhinged, as they lash out at LeBron James for having the temerity to expose America's enduring tradition of police brutality and White supremacy.

The America that these White Right snowflakes live in is about as "real" as a QAnon conspiracy theory.

The fact that these vermin can be "elected" to Congress reflects the broader insanity of their MAGA mouth-breather followers.

George Floyd, Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice, Oscar Grant, Ahmaud Arbery, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin--the list goes on and on.

All of these Black people were murdered by America based upon thinly disguised rationalizations--yet these White Right wingnuts still insist that "America is not racist."

Of course, the Republican Party is the party of Donald Trump--the Republican Jim Jones--so their connection to reality is dubious.
