Is it pure racist motivations or just a chance to dumb down the competition so average white guys can play ball?

this is the same thing that i thought when i read it. although the guy did make some stereotypical comments, i think this explains his motivation.

besides, it is a free country, so this shouldnt even be news. either way, there is such a double standard. no one cried a word when they came up with the idea of a blacks-only college football hall of fame, also based in atlanta.

Come on Brother Marks...what about average black/latino/asian, etc. guys then?


Definitely racist motivations.




But, I do think it is all for attention...!

I think it's probably a joke. If it wasn't, I think we should get a bunch of Black Guys and White Girls to go into the stands and stage a kiss-in. That'll definetly rile their racist ass.

Pretty hard to make free throws with the white hoods on!

They will have team names like "the Memphis Burning Crosses".

Maybe they'll only play during Tea Bag rallies!

there are no black-only colleges

there are Historically black colleges and universities that were created during Jim Crow segregation, so blacks can get Higher education. Not only now but whites were all way welcome to go to a HBCU. Most HBCU remain predominantly black but a few HBCUs like West Virginia State Universityare predominantly white. Their name reference there history and they're call black collages for short. So what's wrong The HBCU football hall of fame being based in Atlanta again? Next time look stuff up before commenting something like that.

Historically black colleges and universities

List of historically black colleges and universities

Your the same guy who said there was a "Black agenda" something I'm still waiting for you to tell me what all blacks agree on? what is the "Black agenda"? and do this hasty generalization only applies to blacks or you believe every racial background has this collective "agenda"?

I was trying to point out sarcastically how stupid the white-only idea was!

I appologize to any racists that I might have offended.

The league is inappropriate!
