The Sacramento Kings basketball team had to cancel giving away Lunar New Year shirts celebrating the Year of the Monkey on Monday after a player noted the shirts could be deemed offensive during Black History month.Could be deemed offensive? By whom? Imbeciles who are so ignorant that they are unaware of how the Chinese lunar calendar works and are so self centered that they think anything that is offensive in one context is racist in all contexts. But it's bad enough that this imbecile kicked up a fuss about something that wasn't racist n the least bit, but that the Sacramento Kings so called "leadership" caved to the imbecile.
'I walk into the building and DeMarcus Cousins calls me over to an animated discussion he's having with Kings operations people. He [asks] me, "Olskool, what you think about this T-shirt? Told him a little insensitive on first day of Black History Month." They pulled the shirts,' said Johnson on his Facebook page.Who decided that this imbecile was the go to person on black issues? And how does black hypersensitivity trump thousands of years of Chinese culture?
'We all need a lesson in sensitivity,' Kings president Chris Granger said, according to the Sacramento Bee.No, We need leadership willing to say "no" to self centered, self-important groups that make issues of things that are not issues.
In an effort to celebrate Chinese New Year, we had some concerns about the T-shirt giveaway, so we pulled them all before the doors opened. Certainly we don't want to offend anybody, and we acted as soon as we heard the concern,' he added. Johnson commended Cousins for pointing out the potential offense the shirts could have caused. 'Good move Kings. Year of Monkey Tees on 1st day of Black History Month not a good look. Thanks DeMarcus...,' Johnson tweeted along with a photos of the staff taking away the shirts.This is a sad case of giving in to ridiculous claims. Anyone who would have been offended are stupid *cencored* who should have been ridiculed in all corners. Meanwhile in Chicago:
CHICAGO — The nation's third largest city recorded 51 homicides in January, the highest toll for the month since at least 2000...here were also 2,900 shootings, 13% more than the year prior, according to police department records.But, Year of the Monkey. This highlights the problem. The real deal issues affecting black folks are given little to no attention by the leadership. When attention is paid to the real deal issues affecting black folks, the blame is externalized, the solutions are externalized. Black folks are held to no adult standards and are denied agency in the creation and solutions to their problems. Instead, like the non-controversy that is the Year of the Monkey, liberal white folks allow the whiney children (that would be black folks) to get what they want (externalized blame and lack of self control) and everybody else has to tip toe on eggshells. Meanwhile, 51 dead and 2900 shootings. Not important in the least bit. Better to discuss the kid shot 16 times while high on drugs, with a deadly weapon who cannot follow directions. Meanwhile other minorities have just learned that imbeciles hold a veto power over their cultural celebrations. How long until they start to see black people as the enemy?
