You can find racist or ignorant remarks from damn near any institution. I don't really care what the church did or said then, I care about what's happening now
Want to prove the Utah management purposely picks white players over black players? Bust out the draft record. Prove they draft more white players than black players. If they choose a higher percentage of white players in the draft than other teams, you have a case. Utah, the state itself, cannot
attract the average black NBA basketball player.
Furthermore, let's not forget that this team that was apparently put together to appeal to the white man beat the Rockets in 7 and is currently up 2-0 on a team with .. 1 white player?
