I won't bother posting the links, as this story is very easy to find with just a copy paste google search from the title of this thread.
 
I haven't seen anyone post on here about it, and I'm curious to see what you guys think about it on all angles, from the idea itself, to the NAACP's vow to stop the league from forming.
 
Let's just get this out of the way-the idea, and the reasons / thoughts behind the idea are ridiculous, and insulting.

I really hope this is a joke, or at least that this guy knows how ridiculous it sounds. I sense a little social sarcasm commentary behind it, and let's hope it stays that way, and doesn't see the light of day.

While I think the premise is ridiculous, I also think that it is ridiculous for the NAACP to get involved.

There were only 2 American born white guys in the top 100 in scoring last year.  So, while I can see what he's saying, why would anyone watch it?  Obviously all the good players will still be in the NBA.

I was watching some men's basketball and noticed one of the teams had 5 african americans on the court while the other only had 1. My school's best player is white, but we have some really high skilled african americans too.

Oh yeah?  Well I'm going to start my very own "Caucasian American" magazine called Ivory.  And my own TV show called WET.  And my own organization called the NAAWP.

Take that, civil rights movement.

I'm going to comment on this as a sports fan and not on any civil rights issue:

God, that would be the most boring sports league ever. It would make watching the PGA tour seem exciting.

Thats exactly what me and my friend where thinking. There would be no sweet dunks or any shots and the end score would end up looking like a Football game

I would have said black earlier if someone had said it earlier. People seem to jump on others as being racist for such a simple word that has become common among the masses.

I think the term African American should only apply if you were born in Africa and you moved to the U.S. and became a U.S. citizen. But if you were born in the U.S. you should be either American or black... or a Black American. That's the way I see it.

Also LOL @ WET.

Then they would be African.  That's like saying Russians who immigrate here should be called Russian Americans.  Or Americans who emigrate to Germany, American Germans.

Furthermore, if you have a problem with African American, I assume you also have a problem with Asian American and Hispanic American?  What then, should we call them?  Yellows and Brownishes?

Does that make the majority of us "European-Americans"?

Also, I think Spike should rename themselves Mens Entertainment, and just shorten it to ME.
