There is alot of racism in sports and in the world in general.
Sad that some people can't understand that underneath our skin everyone is just human and everyone was once an innocent child with no preconceptions about anything.
We are equal, but we all dont start at the same starting point. Think of social inequality as a marathon and birth is the starting point. A majority of whites often have an advantage with a head start because they are born into circumstances where their families are not living in poverty, have adequate resources, attend schools that are properly funded with competent teachers.
Now picture most people of color who are born into circumstances of poverty, attend underfunded schools, have single/non-traditional families, etc.
Affirmative action is an assessment tool where the person's entire background, including race, is reviewed because of social inequality.
I have no room to be racist when I'm not even white lol
LETS GO HEAT
You proved yourself to be the only idiot in this thread to use the "broken English" stereotype, despite the fact that we all know Jeremy Lin was born and raised in California and speaks perfect English. And judging by your posts, you seem to be stuck at 4th grade English.
calm down guys. i think the title of this thread is misleading and that the quote was taken out of context or missunderstood. he isnt saying he is being criticized for how he has been playing due to race; he has played poorly and he knows it.
instead i think he is talking about how asian americans are judged/prejudged as basketball players or as athletes as a whole. the line right before said he had to justify his herritage. if you continue to read the article he goes into explaining it with the following:
"I've always been a target," Lin says. "Everyone looks me and says, 'I'm not going to let that Asian kid embarrass me. I'm going to go at him.' That's how it's been my whole life. This has been different, though. Now, I was on the scouting report. People started to pay attention to what I could and couldn't do.
"But a target? I was used to that. I'm not saying I get everyone's best shot, but I would say people don't want to be embarrassed by me because of my skin color."
we've seen some of that by the what rondo and deron williams have said or acted towards lin too.
a lot of my asian friends have had the same experience. when they step on the court, no one thinks they can play and other guys try to show them up or mess around.
I was at the game where he broke out and there was a while row of asians with white tee shirts with jermey Lin written letter by letter, it was hilarious ... It's ridiculous for him to even say that he got that contract cus he was Asian he isn't even that good he's extremely sloppy .and that air ball was the best thing I've seen all year
Honestly, answer the question. Im clearly saying I'm not a racist and yet you're acting like a delusional illiterate chit, and saying that I am lol!!
And since you wanna talk about education, what exactly do you do? I'm a Pre med student buddy.
I sincerely quote south park and you get so defensive over it. Lol idiot.
