That sounds like a legit question to me. There are plenty of examples of white players facing similar questions.
As white people, are we guilty of the sins of our forefathers? No, I dont think so.
But are we responsible for them? Yes, I believe we are.
Such BS. So we can't hold the parents responsible when kids are roaming the streets and breaking into houses or dealing drugs or shooting up peoples' houses, but I'm responsible for the actions of my great-great-great-grandfather in 1820? Never mind the fact that he was in Norway at the time...
If we did, LaBron James wouldn’t have a job along with most of those players...
Not what it says:
This settlement is not a concession that Mr. Sefolosha was blameless in this matter and there was no admission of liability by the defendants, but in light of the gravity of his injuries, the potential impact on his career as a professional athlete and the challenge for a jury in sorting out the facts in this incident, the resolution of the case was in the best interests of the city.
His privilege is because he’s rich, not because he’s white.
I’m always interested in what moneyed white ball dribblers think. Thank God he’s going to hold all white people accountable for the horrible treatment of moneyed black ball dribblers.
