Black Basketball Player, With Past Racist Tirades, Demands An All-Black League

Larry Johnson
Larry Johnson, who played in the NBA for ten years, has called for an “All-Black” basketball league in the wake of racist remarks made by the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Johnson, who now works in the front office of the New York Knicks, tweeted, “Black people your Focusing on the wrong thing. We should be focusing on having our own, Own team own League! To For Self!!”

Johnson was known for making racial comments during his playing years. In 1999 he told reporters, “We’ve got a lot of rebellious slaves on this team.”

Can you imagine, if a white person said, "Let's have an "All-White" team?  Can you imagine the chaos that would ensue?

Racism is a two way street and needs to end on both sides.
