LeBron James: NFL Owners 'Old White Men' with 'Slave Mentality' Toward Players

LeBron James: NFL Owners 'Old White Men' with 'Slave Mentality' Toward Players
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron Jamessaid Friday on his HBO Sports series The Shop that the NFL has "a bunch of old white men owning teams" who have a "slave mentality" toward players.

Ben Golliver of the Washington Post provided the full transcript:

Ahiza Garcia of CNN Money reported May 18 that only two people of color owned or co-owned professional NFL teams: Shahid Khan of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Kim Pegula of the Buffalo Bills. The lack of diversity spreads through all major American sports leagues, with the NBA having the most people of color own or co-own teams (only three). The same goes for management and coaching positions as well.

James is one of a few people to call out the league and/or its owners over a "slave mentality" or something similar after NFL owners approved a national anthem policy whereas players must either stand or stay in the l…

Nike reports double-digit profit growth after Colin Kaepernick controversy

Nike reports double-digit profit growth after Colin Kaepernick controversy
Profits at Nike rose double-digits in the months after launching a controversial ad campaign with Colin Kaepernick, a rebuke to critics like President Trump who chastised the company for selecting the former-National Football League player who became the face of pregame protests. Revenue at the Beaverton, Ore.-based retailer rose 10 percent in the three months through November to $9.3 billion. Net income also increased 10 percent to $847 million. Sales in North America, which would theoretically be most impacted by the marketing ploy, rose 9 percent in the quarter to $3.7 billion. “We’re incredibly energized about 2019 — with a full innovation pipeline; the most personal, responsive retail experiences in the industry; and a supply chain that’s delivering speed at scale," CEO Mark Parker said in a statement on Thursday.

Jay-Z trying to talk Travis Scott out of doing Super Bowl halftime show over Colin Kaepernick, report says
While former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will not be playing for any team that makes the Super Bowl, issues between the league and his supporters are still a talking point.

The 'Gay Pass' in Rap

The 'Gay Pass' in Rap
Who has one. Who wants one. Who needs one. And why.

First things first. I know that both rap and hip-hop are driven by bravado, reputation, boastfullness as well as (among other things) competitiveness. These things often lead to insults, physical confrontations, fatalities, and a loss of an artists freedom. Rap is competition were not only the losers reputation as an artist is on the line, but that of his entourage, friends, family, and that of even his own hometown. Talk about a must win.

In rap, bragging rights are everything. But its what an artists brags about is what's most important. Money, cars, clothes and mabye most important...one's manhood, sexual prowess, aka - females. Sex is an important topic in rap. It creeps up in every other bar, in every type of line, in every type of rap song.

Like rap itself, the subject of sex is relatable to men. All guys boast about and compare the number of females they've had sex with. Its cool, fun.

Black leaders forged alliance with Trump on sentencing deal

Black leaders forged alliance with Trump on sentencing deal WASHINGTON — A rare bipartisan deal in Congress to overhaul federal sentencing laws passed after a few black ministers, leaders and lawmakers forged an alliance with President Donald Trump, who some have condemned as racist for the last two years. The reforms could offer a path to freedom for hundreds of black and Latino inmates who were sent to prison by a justice system that critics say has long been stacked against minorities. “It’s like threading a needle politically,” said Marc Morial, the National Urban League’s president and CEO. “It’s been very delicate to get us to the point where we are right now.” Bishop Harry Jackson, pastor of Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, Maryland, still gets questions from fellow African-Americans asking him why he and other conservative black ministers went to the White House over the summer to talk about the issue with Trump. “People are still mad at us about that,” Jackson said. But the end…

TikTok has a white supremacy problem, creating and sharing neo-Nazi propaganda

TikTok has a white supremacy problem, creating and sharing neo-Nazi propaganda Some accounts on the video app promote bigotry, antisemitism, violence against women, and Nazi rhetoric. The lip-syncing music app TikTok (download for iOS or Android) merged with Musical.ly in August and its popularity quickly blossomed. App users can record a short music video to almost any song, add filters and stickers, and then share with other users. Many TikTok users are attempting to recapture the magic of Vine, the video app that shut down last year. Others, however, are using TikTok as a platform to spread bigotry, hatred and violent rhetoric. These accounts on the video-sharing app make calls for violence against people of color, Jews, women and push neo-Nazi propaganda, Motherboard originally reported. "Hate speech is not permitted on TikTok. We make this very clear in our Terms of Service and Community Guidelines, and we remove inappropriate content and terminate accounts that violate our polic…
