*This is very interesting to say the least. And it’s no joke, either. A Georgia boxing promoter is starting an all-white basketball league that coincides with a TV reality series called “Snow-ball versus bro-ball.”
Tony McNary of WGCL, CBS’s Atlanta affiliate, spoke to the man, Don “Moose” Lewis, also league commissioner, to discuss his plans for the league. When asked if the All-American Basketball Alliance (AABA) is racist, Lewis flatly responded, “No,” adding, “It’s not gonna be the street-type ball mentality. It’s going to be different.”
McNary also spoke with Charles Barkley who, to no one’s surprise, didn’t mince his words about the new league.
“It’s just blatantly racist if you look at the code words used,” the Hall of Famer said. “I don’t take it seriously, but it just lets you know there’s blatant racism out there…. It lets you know, as a black man, there are people out there who don’t like you.”
