Black Privilege and Black History Month: When You’re Black, You Get to Reverse Over 2,200 Years of Chinese History! Increasingly PC Daily Mail Supports Black Attack, and Engages in Massive Censorship of Reader Comments
Life under Jim Snow. This is the sort of thing that caused me to stop watching the NBA years ago.
I hope that DeMarcus Cousins is the dumbest son of a bitch in the NBA, because I’d hate to see someone even more stupid. However, retired NBA player Marques Johnson has to be just as bad for backing and lying for Cousins.
The Daily Mail story below has only 21 comments after over 14 hours up, and hundreds of reader votes. The only possible conclusion—the Mail’s thread Nazis have deleted and/or blocked hundreds of comments.
I attempted to post two comments:
“Opportun1st, London, United Kingdom, 14 hours ago
“I dont think people are that sensitive. Its a coincidence for goodness sake.”
What coincidence? There was nothing. There was simply the racist vanity of DeMarcus Cousins and Marques Johnson, and the spinelessness of Kings President Chris Granger, who I suppose was afraid of getting Sterlinged.
The Kings managed to offend millions of Chinese.

The Chinese Year of the Monkey begins on February 8 but the shirts were meant to be given away on February 1, the first day of Black History Month

The Sacramento Kings basketball team had to cancel giving away Lunar New Year shirts celebrating the Year of the Monkey on Monday after a player noted the shirts could be deemed offensive during Black History month.
[He didn't "note[d] the shirts could be deemed offensive," he threw a tantrum over them.]
Bucks TV analyst Marques Johnson says he was called into a conversation [?!] player DeMarcus Cousins was having with the Kings operations team over the controversial shirt.
[There was no "controversial shirt"; there were two out-of-control black men. And what was the "conversation"? Cousins cursing out some white Uncle Toms?]
'I walk into the building and DeMarcus Cousins calls me over to an animated discussion he's having with Kings operations people. He [asks] me, "Olskool, what you think about this T-shirt? Told him a little insensitive on first day of Black History Month." They pulled the shirts,' said Johnson on his Facebook page.
The Chinese Year of the Monkey begins on February 8 but the shirts were meant to be given away on February 1, the first day of Black History Month. Players and coaches were already wearing shirts celebrating Black History Month on that day, according to ESPN.
The staff rushed to remove all the shirts before the fans arrived at Sleep Train Arena, according to Bleacher Report.
James Ham of CSN Bay Area tweeted a photo of the monkey shirt before they were pulled from the arena.
“We all need a lesson in sensitivity,” Kings president Chris Granger said, according to the Sacramento Bee.
[I guarantee you that this white Uncle Tom did not mean what he said. “We all” would include DeMarcus Cousins. But if that were the case, Granger would have set Cousins straight. No, White Boy Granger meant, “We whites all need a lesson in sensitivity.’
“In an effort to celebrate Chinese New Year, we had some concerns about the T-shirt giveaway, so we pulled them all before the doors opened. Certainly we don't want to offend anybody, and we acted as soon as we heard the concern,” he added.
[More b.s.: The first two clauses of the first sentence above create a non sequitur. A logical sentence would have read something like, ‘In an effort to celebrate Chinese New Year, we gave out T-shirts.’ Or, ‘In an effort to offend Chinese, we pulled the Chinese New Year T-shirts.’]
Johnson commended Cousins for pointing out the potential offense the shirts could have caused.
[But the only “offense” was in the mind of narcissistic, black supremacists like DeMarcus Cousins and Marques Johnson. Cousins didn’t “point out … potential offense,” he caused it!]
Every team in the league still 'must commemorate the Chinese New Year in some fashion,' according to ESPN. The rest of the Chinese New Year celebration continued as scheduled.
[And wherein did “the rest of the Chinese New Year celebration” consist? My guess: The T-shirts were it, and the celebration was thus eliminated, to please the vanity of black racists DeMarcus Cousins and Marques Johnson.]
Cousins did not play on Monday because he had a sprained ankle. The Kings won against the Milwaukee Bucks 111-104.
[He didn’t even play? So, he was off that night, but still took over the arena?!]
