Useful Racism From The Basketball Court

Athletically, American blacks are quicker and more explosive. That’s some useful racism I learned playing pickup basketball. From what I read, I learned wrong. Or maybe I learned right but don’t understand the full story. Someone said it’s just one race of blacks from one specific part of Africa.

I sucked at basketball so it didn’t really matter. There are many ways to exercise skill in basketball. Whites were better shooters. Sometimes I’d watch a game from the sidelines and wonder, who would win, the blacks dunking or the whites shooting?

Lest you accuse me of stereotyping. There were also competitions between sharp-shooting blacks and whites charging the center with 50 pounds of beer fat around their guts making ugly-ass layups no one was about to interrupt.

I bet those fat-jiggling whites also came from some specific part of Europe.

Jews were the most interesting basketball players of all. Neither athletic nor otherwise skilled. Jews are obsessed with basketball because, theoretically, they should excel. It’s a strategic team sport like no other — but they aren’t, at least at a professional level. However, they certainly knew how to work with black basketball players, all becoming becoming rich in the NBA.
