Video: Moose Lewis Speaks On His "Whites Only" Basketball League
Everyone is calling this guy racist for wanting to start an all-White basketball league where ONLY American-born Caucasian players would be allowed. Meaning no Blacks and no foreign players. That's not accurate. He's actually stupid. I don't think even White people would want to watch an all-White basketball league. I mean hell, do you see anybody talking about how great Indiana Pacers games are nowadays? Nope, didn't think so.
Lewis says that he doesn't think he's being racist, but that he is simply filling a niche for people who want to watch fundamentally sound basketball. None of that flashy stuff. I suggest those people watch WNBA games. No dunking, no ally-oops, no behind the back passes...just good ole chest passes and jump shots.
At the end of the day, I think Lewis is just one of those guys who is intimidated by all the tattoos in the NBA, who may also be tired of hearing about how a lot the NBA's Black players stay in trouble with the law. So he figures that starting a league with all-White players would be "pure"...I guess.
White readers out there...would you go to any of his leagues games? Would you try out?
