Isn't it strange and pervasive that the mere hint of racism has us all tied in knots and unable to speak freely these days? A subject I would like to discuss is athletes but can't get under the racist bar: ie, why are white athletes so challenged? I do not exaggerate to say back when basketball was a white sport people would say a good team can have one or 2 black guys and be great but no more. Now the idea has boomeranged and truthfully no team can be very good with more than one or 2 white players. So the big question can we truthfully say all races are equal in abilities? Don't get me wrong, I would not want to watch just white basketball players and I applaud the terrific athletes like Rodman. Still mystified....
