3 The Supreme Court had mandated the integration of public schools in the landmark Brown v. the Board of Education case in 1954. Five years earlier, the University of Kentucky admitted its first African-American students, but it took Kentucky another 17 years to put Nat Northington and Greg Page, two African-Americans, on its football team in 1966. They were the first African-American student-athletes in the football-dominated SEC. 4 Vandu intergrated its b-ball team in 67, Auburn and Alabama the following yr, and UK followed with Tom Payne 5. Uk was the 4th of 10 SEC schools to allow blacks to play basketball. 6. UK gave Joker Phillips the head coaching job of the football program making him the 2nd black head coach in the SEC. 7th. Tubby Smith was the head coach of the UK basketball team. He was the 3rd black head coach in the SEC. 8th. How many black basketball coaches has UL had? 9th. I know u will poo pah this. No biggie. U want to hate. U revel in your hatred. Im glad. GO BIG BLUE and UL CAN SUCK IT.  (Jan 18, 2012 | post #29)

1... In 1926-30, Rupp accepted the basketball head coaching position at Freeport High School, (Freeport, Illinois) where he also taught history and economics. During his four years at Freeport, Rupp compiled a record of 66-21 and guided his team to a third-place finish in the 1929 state tournament.[2] While at Freeport High School Rupp started William "Mose" Mosely, the first African-American to play basketball at Freeport and the second to graduate from the school. There have been rumors in the Freeport community for years that Rupp was forced out because he played Mosely, while others say that he left because he did not win the state championships in 1929 and 1930 #2.The 1948 Olympic team had five Kentucky Wildcats basketball players who had just won the very first Wildcat national championship in the 1948 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament. The rest of the Olympic team, consisting of the AAU Champions Phillips 66ers, and the Kentucky team later scrimmaged on Stoll Field in front of 14,000 spectators, the largest crowd to watch basketball in Kentucky at that time. Barksdale became the first African-American to play against Kentucky in Lexington. He could not stay at the hotel with the rest of the team, but instead stayed with a black host family.[3] Adolph Rupp, the legendary Kentucky coach, was the assistant coach on the 1948 team under Omar Browning.[4] "[Rupp] turned out to be my closest friend," Barksdale said. "We went to London and won all 12 games and got the gold medal." But he had to brush off indignities just about every step of the way. . . Later, coach Rupp told Barksdale, "Son, I wish things weren't like that, but there's nothing you or I can do about it." Barksdale agreed. He lived by a very simple philosophy. He wasn't interested in protest; he was interested in playing basketball. He had faced prejudice before, and he knew that he would face it again  (Jan 18, 2012 | post #28)

I agree with you and wasnt trying to start shit. It was a bonus question i had in college around his b-day one yr. Anyhow, his birth name is Michael King. His father who is also Michael King studied the workd of the great reformer Martin Luther and took that for his and his sons name.  (Jan 18, 2012 | post #39)

The REAL MLK - Traitor, Wife-beater and Fraud

I dont know anything aout your so called facts be they right or wrong except one. Dr. King was not with white prostitutes the night before he was murdered. He was with a woman named Georgia Powers a black woman who was the first blace member of the Kentucky state legislature. In 1995 she worte a book called "Sharing the Dream" in which she admitted whe was with him that night. The Rev Ralph Abernathy had always claimed that he spent his last night with a senator from Kentucky. Not that it matters. those without sin cast the first stone  (Jan 16, 2012 | post #15)

Peky lil fact. he did not change his name or his religion to get out of the military. and the Supreme Court of the United States overturned his conviction 8-0. and this pesky lil fact. Ali will be remembered long after you are dead. and millions more love him for his skills and his committment to peace than not going in the military.  (Jan 16, 2012 | post #31)

Why should he be in jail when in 1977 President Jimmy Carter pardoned and forgave all the draft dodgers that ran off to Canada?  (Jan 16, 2012 | post #24)

Elvis did his duty, stood post and never once preformed for the brass. He accepted no perks in his military career.  (Jan 16, 2012 | post #23)

Sir: He changed his name publicly the day after he won the heavyweight championship in 1964, and was not called for service until 1967. Before he was the champ he was declared 4F, not fit for military duty. It was aftrer he wont he title he was decalred 1A fit for duty. ANd you are right about Elvis. He was a damn fine soldier.  (Jan 16, 2012 | post #22)

John my healthcare went up over 1,300.00 per yr. About $26.00 a week and i only got a $2.00 a week raise. That was just this yr. we have 2 more yrs remaining on this contract and it is suspected that my preniums will rise another $22.00 a week by the end of this deal.I make a decent wage but it is being attacked at all times. What scares me about the mandate require insurance is this. I pay 92.66 a week in healthare insurance. That is roughly 25% of the cost. Which means my employer pays $277.98 a week or $14,454.96 a yr. In the mandate my employer can drop me, and the rest of us employees, pay a $1,500.00 fine and force me unto the Govt roles. They would save over $12,000 per yr. Now why do i want that? Im sorry for all of those that do not have healthcare. The insurance companies, the pharmceutical companies and the govt have conspired to make medical car ein this country had to pay for. If the govt needs to step in they need to regulate these industries into better and more fiscally sound entities.  (Jan 11, 2012 | post #104)

Johnny not everything is racist and about Obama. If u were the John Masters in the newspaper tuesday then u are 28 yrs old right? You are too young to remember the fight that come up when Bill and Hillary pushed hard for it in Bills first term around 93-94 if memorey serves. The reason this is more known is because it passed. and because the govt will FORCE people to buy it. and another thing. Im a union member and we just had a contract renewal, The cost of insurance for me and my company went up 29.3%. It is all because of the new healthcare law. Dont ever think anything is free. They will get it from the backs of the workign man. Now social security and medicare. The govt doesnt give me that. I and my employer pay for that. 4.2 % of my wages and the company puts in 6.2% into SS and we both put in i believe it is 1.8 % in medicare. So pelase dont think im getting a damn thing from the govt. I PAY FOR IT.  (Jan 7, 2012 | post #102)

i hav traeled many places in the USA including West Virginia (shithole) and have no desire to travel outside of the US except for Ireland We could have universal healthcare. But to have it it has to be paid for someway. Guess how it would happen? Thats right. MUCH higher taxes. thats not including the fact that workers have to make up for the ones that do not want to work but want to live off the govt tit. Im not talking about the folks that have lost their jobs because of a sour economy. Im talking about the useless bastards that refuse to work becauase they wont get clean, wont quit drinking and wont get off their lazy asses and try to do somethign when they have as much ability as any one else. And dont think im ragging on any demographic. I have 2 people in my family near my age who are useless and wont even try because the govt has their big hand out to give them whatever they need.  (Jan 7, 2012 | post #98)
