A great move for Race relations.

I know. I know.  This incident may not really have been a racial incident but I’m certain a lot of people will see it that way. It involves an A-A player stepping on the face of a white player as he lay on the floor.

I could see it as racially motivated if I were in a curmudgeonly mood but mostly I see it as a product of professional sports tough guy role models and the affinity for hoodlum activity that some A-A males have adopted because of it.

The kid was ejected from the game but I personally hope that this is not the last that we’ll hear about it. A suspension of some kind is in order. Basketball (college and even the high school version) as I knew it,  is about dead anyway and this kind of stuff only hastens its demise.

    He was suspended for the next game. He also apologized and said it was unintentional……No idea if he meant it….It did look pretty bad….
