    The difference that seems to always escape that pea sized brain of yours is I post for the education of those who seek truth. You post trying to make boastful proclamations that have been consistently wrong. Most ignore what you have to say because your track record sucks shit through a straw and you’ve yet to be right.
    Eat shit, hater.

    When does the protest start for a free Hong Kong? Or the million muslims in reeducation camps in China? Or the sweat shops?
    Or total lack of human rights?
    I'm sure the deep thinkers Rivers and Lebron are working on a plan.
    The bottom line- most of us here don't care if they ever play/coach again.

    Idiot: That's hilarious and definitely proves my point about the under50IQ group.

    I heard Trump is considering boycotting his speech tomorrow in support of his fucking 17 year old supporter that killed two protestors. Should he issue a pardon now?

    It's clear you've been drinking. This is not your normal tact. Like I've always said, eventually all liberals melt down here. You are a slow burning candle, but melting none the less.

    Figures you'd come to the defense of antifa jack boots. Typical, freedom hating Marxist pretending that they own the high ground and that they only support pure angels...

    To NBA Players, why not use your voice to bring people together in these times, instead of a megaphone of division.

    Sports are supposed to be and escapee from the daily grind and an outlet for all of us to enjoy.

    I'll repeat what I posted in the baseball thread:
    I am so over sports (not just professional), and it started long before the most recent issues. Let these people have their hissy fit and see where it gets them in the long run. For once, I'm glad I am in most ways, an average American, because if the average American sees these things my way, these athletes are in for a world of hurt financially.

    I call this a fiction. Prove it, with links, or it is you lying.

    Also the NBA folded like a cheap suit and people lost jobs when they fellated China about Hong Kong. So blacks deserve freedom but HKers do not? They cowarded out because of money. That looks like whoredom to me.

    They've brought the financial damage onto themselves.

    The NBA owners and players showed moral cowardice and undercut their arguments by sucking up to communist China but supporting BLM. Selective moral outrage.

    No big loss. The NBA has been a sinking crap show for going on 20+ years. The quality of play has diminished due to raiding the colleges and high schools for undeveloped talent with poor fundamentals and little understanding of team play. It is already unwatchable.

    Fly: Why don't you hold the under50IQ group accountable for the endless drivel that they post?

    I researched data from a number of sources, but the two links below provide a high level overview of the "defunding police" issue. The fundamental problem is crime has become big business and marginalized communities suffer.

    The basic premise is marginalized community members experience more incarceration than mainstream community members committing the identical offense because there are financial rewards for increasing the incarceration rates. The schematic in https://www.prisonpolicy.org/reports/money.html lays out graphically who benefits financially from increasing the incarceration rates. The second link https://www.hrw.org/legacy/reports/2000/usa/Rcedrg00.htm details the statistical relationship between the mainstream and marginalized communities.

    The "War on Drugs" slogan that helped to usher Reagan into the White House resulted in the prison population quadrupling. According to Human Rights Watch 62.7% of those incarcerated for drug possession were black, despite representing 14% of the total population.

    The fundamental question is the racial implications of incarcerating so many people for non-violent victimless crimes? The war on drugs is big business for police departments, public defender offices, district attorneys, jails, jail suppliers and services, bail bondsmen, Etc. There is a tremendous incentive for cities to pursue law and justice by incarcerating marginalized communities.

    What would happen if we defunded the pursuit of non-violent crimes?
