There’s a guy in Georgia named Don “Moose” Lewis, and he’s the “brains” behind a new ALL-WHITE pro basketball league called the All-American Basketball Alliance.
–Supposedly it’ll open this June, and according to a league statement, the AABA is only open to, quote, “players that are natural born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race.” That means NO BLACKS and NO FOREIGNERS.
–Moose says, quote, “There’s nothing hatred about what we’re doing. I don’t hate anyone of color. But people of white, American-born citizens are in the minority now. Here’s a league for white players to play fundamental basketball, which they like . . .
–“Would you want to go to the game and worry about a player flipping you off or attacking you in the stands or grabbing their crotch? That’s the culture today, and in a free country we should have the right to move ourselves in a better direction . . .
–“I’m the spoken minority right now, but if people will give us a chance, it’ll work . . . The white game of basketball, which is essentially a fundamental game, works.”
–Moose is now looking for 12 southeastern cities interested in sponsoring their own AABA team. We’re sure it’ll be a cinch. (???)
