    I am interested to see what y'all think about the piece below.

    Kyle is a good guy, but I imagine a lot of you (most?) may shit on his attempt to recognize and appreciate that all men are NOT created equal.

    Racism is real, and in order to embark towards healing, it MUST be recognized.

    Anyway, here is the piece:

    Racism is certainly real, but forcing an agenda on people instead of allowing views to evolve organically never works.

    The thing is that people who have a sense of what is really going on, (inequity, etc) tend to NOT feel "forced".

    When people feel that way, it tends to be due to the fact that they are straight up against said views, so they push-back.

    Kyle Korver seems like a great guy and I genuinely like that he wrote this, even if I don't inherently agree with all of it.

    One thing he said is 100% correct though: He has two choices when it comes to this issue. He can simply keep his mouth shut and stay in the background. After all, he isn't a superstar player and very few would notice if he never decided to speak up.

    Or he can speak up and stand in solidarity with the players. Making that choice is a good one, and perhaps the right one.

    Love it when a 1 percenter virtue signals like this. I'm sure he feels like this right now.

    Now THIS is what I expected from Sherbros.

    Sad...but expected.

    Anyway, Korver is a good guy.

    They don’t actually believe it... some people aren’t just programmed to tow the party line.

    I'll ask the same thing I ask every time.

    Post some examples of how my skin tone has helped me get ahead.

    Yeah. It is hard to believe that they aren't just going with the hateful flow.

    Korver is in the NBA.............................. His perspective is different than...EVERYONE ELSE, apart from the few white players in the league.

    I think there are under 500 people TOTAL in the NBA, so his perspective is relatively unique.

    Have no problem with what Korver said. Yes, racism is very real and will never go away as long as ignants' exist. And by ignants I mean every race of people. Not just white folks out here acting racist to keep it real.

    But this seems like folks are going to use what Kyle said as reparations talking points. All of this is planned out folks

    I'm not supposed to "take advantage" of it. Its supposed to be automatic, like pheromones or some similar phenomenon. I've been told for decades now that my skin color is akin to winning the lottery.

    Just would like to know when my benefits kick in is all.

    Anyone?

    Your skull is not determined by skin tone, but more by skeletal frame and genetic predispositions from your ancestral family.
    Your skin tone has no affect on whether your body has a head on it.

    That has nothing to do with the topic, and the question portrays a general misunderstanding of what privilege theory denotes.
