    People like this writer and the people criticizing the timberwolves for being "too white" are part of the reason that racism still exists. As long as there are people who only see in color we are never going to get rid of racism. If someone wrote an article about a team being "too black" all hell would break loose, as long as this double standard exists, racial divide will always exist.

    Terrell calls it "scary" that the Wolves would assemble a roster almost 70 percent white in a sport so dominated by blacks. For Edwards, the numbers trouble him by the "historical view," what he calls a "nullification of diversity and a reversal of history."
    LOL are u kidding me? like seriously? these guys gotta get out of this, us against the world mentality, they basically want affirmative action in the league, so if someone is black they should start over ak47, love, pekovic even tho these guys are 10 times more effective?

    Most of the people who complain about racism in America are most likely the reason that it still exhists, hence the African American leadership council.

    Race isn't even an issue until the African American leadership council brings it up. Good ****ing job. Yea, we're all still out to get you.

    This gets me so upset, because it's people like them who keep racism alive and it really isn't. I'm not racist and it pisses me off that people see white people like this.

    FIRE ME!

    Better yet, write to the stupid Minnesota politician for his idiotic racial accusations. Fight for real injustice, not unfounded, drummed up crap like this.

    Imagine if Affirmative Action was allowed in sports? How many good black players would be out of a job replaced by not so good white players just because they were needed to balance the racial equity of the team?? LOTS! Owners of sports teams want to make $money$, a profit, so they are going to field teams with the BEST players, unlike the government who uses unfair hiring practices to staff govt institutions. It's an unfair system that needs to be abolished. The model should be like sports, ignore skin color and hire the best.
