Black Racism, Who Knew?

Well the sport of basketball was invented by a white man. It may be possible that some whites can play the game. I say that in the United States, white anti-black racism is largely a thing of the past. Case in point, looks what qualifies as racism now.  Is racism restricted to whites, or is there such a thing as black racism from Post Game [1]:

Are Minnesota Timberwolves Too White?

Minnesota Timberwolves fans may notice something different about their team this year. In a league in which American-born black players made up 75 percent of roster spots in 2011, the Timberwolves will have an opening-day roster comprising just 33 percent black players (five out of 15).

According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, this year’s squad will be the league’s whitest since the 1980s Boston Celtics.

Is that a problem?

Some civil rights leaders in Minneapolis think so. Tyrone Terrell, chairman of St. Paul’s African American leadership council, told the Star-Tribune that he thinks the unbalanced roster could be seen as a ploy by the ownership to sell the team to a majority-white fan base.

I would call the Timberwolves roster interesting, as in unusual. However Tyrone Terrell is not raising questions. He making accusations, and accusations require evidence, of which the article provides none.

Now suppose, just suppose, that Terrell’s theory that the Timberswolves created a disproportionately white roster to cater to their fans in very white state, Minnesota.    Is that racism or just good business?   Are the Timberwolves somehow obligated to lose money to maintain some secret league quota of black basketball players?

Is diversity just another word for s black racial quota?   The Timberwolves have wide range of ethnic groups represented, just not the apparently required amount of blacks.   Is Diversity just Dog Whistle for Racial Quota?

No public figure, since the late Senator Sheets Byrd, would dare suggest too many blacks were gainfully employed.    Yet a black can make a similar charge with impunity.
