Nash is a no-doubter, don’t know what you’re talking about here... I’d put him roughly on par with J Kidd as a HOF candidate and ahead of Ray Allen. He won two mvps (even if one or both of those could have gone to Dirk). He wasn’t merely great for four or five years- he was an all-time elite shooter and passer who…
He’s a two time league MVP. I think that alone makes him a lock.
And at age 31, I now officially feel old seeing those names in the stages of Hall candidacy.
You think Chinese people can’t think of dark face paint without doing the archival research on vaudeville productions? Your inability to think Chinese people can come up with bad ideas on their own is pretty racist.
Yes, racism in the US goes back centuries.
I’m not justifying racism in any way, shape or form. Racism is horrible. Full stop.
You realize that racism exists outside of “White America” right? We are not the progenitors for every single form of ridiculous racist bullshit on Earth, even if we can lay claim to quite a large chunk of it. To somehow act like China should be absolved of its own form of deeply-rooted (and often fucked) notions about…
He isn’t justifying racism. He is explaining that racism isn’t a unique product of the US and we aren’t exporting it. It has existed everywhere because historically, ingroup/outgroup dynamics have been common.
If you’re not trained, and if you have a criminal disposition—a violent disposition—it can be turned into a killing machine.
No, it really isn’t. The Chinese diaspora has a very long history in Africa. Stereotypical depictions of Africans in China go back centuries.
For you math teachers out there, when a student asks, “What do we need this for?”, you can respond, “To own people in the comments section.”
No, she won by about 10 inches. She was going 90 km/hr
As a complete skating noob, what struck me about Hanyu was how effortless he made it seem. He had the fluid grace I love seeing in Adam Rippon, combined with technical near-perfection, a choice of music that suited him and his style perfectly, and that something... call it passion, or emotion, or energy that never…
So great. Cameraman: “You’re the Olympic champion!”
Especially love how the NBC announcer said Veith was the gold medal winner with 25 skiers to go...
Her reaction was so great. Moments like that are why I love the Olympics. That, and when NBC talks up Vonn and other MURICA ONLY athletes as always being shoo-ins to medal and then they don’t even make the podium.
I think if you’re not an American athlete, you’re pretty much nobody to NBC and your event didn’t really happen.
“Putin, from everything I see, has no respect for this person,” Trump said, pointing at Clinton.
You know, I don’t think my opinion was rude, or insensitive. Would love to know where I went wrong if it was. But it seems like on the Kinja platform in general, the only comments that are approved are the ones that vehemently agree with the author.
