Fucking black people can't take responsibility for their words.
I,assume made in jest but that is the most Utley post I have read since I put him on ignore.

It was the set-up line for the soon to follow Knicksonian rejoinder, "well not all black people".

I get you’re upset by my perceived militancy, but Banks you can’t your personal insults against me on these racial discussions.


I can go back to our disagreement over Michael Sam not taking the deal for the documentary. You said he should have put his head down to make the team, I said once he came out before the draft and before he made the roster he was NOT GONNA MAKE ANY SQUAD.

That’s where my continued reference to “clueless and stupid” originates.

75% of white Americans had an unfavorable view of (hated) MLK and I was wrong because your family thought he was great.

You guys are pissed at me because I personalize the shit going on today, but you’re mad at me because I don’t make a point of saying, “Oh, no. Not you. You’re not like that.”

In my experience that’s not a compliment. When my white associates have said that to me I always wondered,
“If you have to tell me that, what do you say when I’m not here?’

I’m telling you what I think about our society, if I have to stroke you every time then you really have to ask why you take it personally?

I think enough about the people here to speak openly and honestly about how “I” see the world.

I guess that ain’t good enough.

Your militancy?
heh.

you're not militant.

You're angry and looking to blame people for your anger.

Knicks you never understood, despite repeated explanations, Sam had one job and that was to make the team, not a reslity TV show. Sam's sense of entitlement to bring a film crew to his job interview for his dreams job, was nuts.  What other rookie was so entitled to encroach on a team in that way, as a team was preparing for an upcoming season?

Answer: No one is.  It was manifestly a stupid idea and he got terrible advise. Oprah realized it almost immediately, and he finally realized it.

You never did.

Because you thought it was easy money.

Clueless.

And I sliced that 75% or whatever the MLK rating # was, to better reflect what northern white liberal and moderate adults with college educations, the white people you were more than likely to come into contact with growing up in NYC/LI, might have thought about MLK.

If we excluded the southern, midwestern, southwestern, rural non-college educated whites of the mid-60s from the poll, the MLK #s approval #s would have been higher.

But segmenting whites was something you weren't interested in, because its easier to see the whites as a monolithic bogey-man.

So please speak your mind, but fair warning, you may get pissed if someone else speaks theirs.

Thats the idea of a forum.

I think the point was not that all police are racist or that all white people are racist, but that our law enforcement system overall is racist and that our government reinforces and supports that racism, while white people are largely the beneficiaries of that racist system. That means that the Supt. of Police in Philadelphia does not himself have to be racist for his department to be racist, overall.

Mr. Knicks, please correct me if I am wrong.

just 50 years of expereince?

how about a history of of being subjected hatred, suffering, cruelty and evil that has a spanned over 5,000?

you're not the only aggrieved person or race on the planet.

Grow the fuck up
If Knicks made a comment based on your religious heritage I missed it. His grievances as a black man in America are not either a slight to or a reaction to yours. So why bring it up?

Apparently you missed it.

He gored my ox a while ago, and seemed markedly indifferent to anti-semitic themes.

knicks recognizes racism everywhere he looks, except in the mirrror.
