I have long hair and they stare at me too. As I said from my experience it's more ignorance than racism. I never had more than two black people in school with me at a time in the suburbs. It's certainly a lot more diverse here now than when I grew up

But he supports Bran's $tats and we all know Bran has zero integrity so he might let it slide.

$tats never lose.

For the first time in his life, hey yo is realizing this conflict of interest. I'm picturing an epic IRL meltdown occurring at this very moment.

On the 22nd of September 2017 Steph, KD, and Freen said they declined the invite and wouldn’t go. Kerr implied the same but said the team would discuss it. On the next day Trump said:


“Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!“


Making it clear he was invited. He pulled the invite after Steph said several times he wouldn’t go. It’s on YouTube. Kd was even more direct.

They said no....the invite was pulled as if they didn’t already decline....

We just pretending he didn’t invite them and get rejected?

Talking about no invite would be sent. He asked. They said no. Of course you don’t ask the same team the next year. And the raptors just passed in advance as well.

Just how it is.

Besides If the president tried to meet everyone who saved a life he wouldn’t have time to do anything else. What’s a sports meeting? A photoshoot between real meetings?
I’d hope the White House would have different “interests” than the average citizen...

Is this post even real..?

You’re acting like the people who use Amazon then complain about Jeff bezos being so rich.

If you care more about discussing LeBron James than people who save lives you shouldn’t be surprised the nation at large and it’s representatives would give athletes more time than millions of nameless faceless EMTs and firefighters.

Politicians look at numbers. The Super Bowl gets more eyes on it than footage of Coops saving people. That’s the world. You help make it that way.

Don’t act annoyed by it now.

Why are you applauding your people being racist bigots?

No, I said that winning a ring for throwing a ball through a hoop along with winning the world series or the super bowl are acceptable criteria for getting an invitation to meet the president of the US, but someone who saves a life that makes national news isn't worthy of an invite. Apparently winning in sports is more important than a life/lives being saved.

Kblaze tried to more or less say that I'm not in position to criticize what the white house is using for criteria since I talk more about basketball on this site than saving lives. If anything he's even more out of position since he talks about basketball on here way more than I do. His lack of not complaining about the criteria to meet the president has no bearing on this fact.

It's a shitty example because what I post on this site has nothing to do with how laughable it is on what the government uses for criteria for meeting the president. Kblaze tried to reach for a cookie before dinner and got his hand slapped before it ever got near the jar.
