These apes need to realize that they are not in "the hood" anymore. And that kids look up to them. Lets face it if they couldn't chase a stupid big orange ball around they would be selling crack on the corner back in "the hood". Bottom line they should be kicked out of the NBA. Put on an island with a bunch of bananas and let them go.
Your mammy is an ape...oh the comments we make hiding behind the security of a computer screen. Please walk into the NBA locker room...any one and say this to one of the players face. Please do it for me!!!! Jack as!!!!!

When did bearing arms become "uncivilized behavior", the right to bear arms is a right of all american citizens. Because the two ball players are Black makes it uncivilized? Thats laughable. It was a bone-headed thing to do as far as brandishing guns to settle a dispute, but in no way does race have anything to do with it. Was it uncivilized when the Columbine high school kids went on a rampage. I never heard that terminology used to describe them. The "Party Line" for the Right Wing Loonies is to PROMOTE bearing arms, now that two black men have done so, it's news. You people are clowns...especially, you "Pat"
Bearing arms legally is not uncivilized but was either one of these clowns defending their life when they pulled their guns out or was this the same old "he disrespected me" kind of stupidity we so often see in these sensless black shootings? Blacks often lack the personal discretion necessary to possess firearms and the daily behavior of blacks with their guns proves it.

Speaking of clowns...
How can you be so obtuse?

It is ridiculous to compare Columbine to a couple of ghetto thugs “keepin’ it real”
Everyone knows the color of violent crime in America except the “clowns” who fail to understand facts and figures.

And speaking of “clowns”… Again….

What is really “laughable” is your criminal cousins driving their clown cars with clown wheels while wearing clowns suits and listening to clown music.

Too many people are criticizing the players for brandishing weapons, when their real crime is stupidity.

I don't have any problems with a person who is in the public light protecting themselves. I mean lets be realistic, these men and a lot of others make a lot of money and with the criminal element in our society, they could end up being stalked or kidnapped and if this was to happen you can guarantee the perpetrator would not be brandishing a slingshot.

However, the key element in carrying a weapon is education! The only time you should ever show your weapon is if you are in fear for your life and if you do pull your weapon, use it.

I find is puzzling why people still find interest in professional sports. I haven't since I was 16. Local HS and maybe some college stuff is fine but pro sports has long ago dwindled into a cesspool of money, drugs and condescension. Now, we've got the 'hood' inside of pro basketball. Leave folks. Just leave and the monsters won't have the money to keep this sham going. Starve it to death. Don't feed it any longer.

When they pulled their pieces, did they hold them sideways, like in the rap videos?

I don't understand how so many intelligent blacks can ignore the facts.

The racist Jesse Sharptons are a curse to the black community at large. Bill Cosby is a national hero. Jesse Jackson's tombstone should later be located inside of a downtown Philadelphia bus station latrine. Same with Sharpton's but his should have a seat on it.

The ignoring of the facts is a form of denial that may take many generations to fix.

It is a mentality thing, rooted in cheating.
Years ago, I produced blues shows with the top artists: Muddy Waters, the Wolf, and many others. Everyone packed a gun. Why? Because they were doing someone else's old lady, and needed protection. No different today. NBA, NFL. Fame, fortune, and lots of women falling all over them.
The sad part is that kids see these people as role models. Role models, my azz!!!!!

Tolerance is acceptance.
Part of the problem is that many in the black community don't think this type of behavior is wrong.

That's because ones moral sense is as heritable as ones IQ and as groups people differ in these heritable traits.
