    Who decides not "I want to dress up as a basketball player" but "the basketball player must also be black."

    One has to wonder. I don't know anything about this guy so I can't say whether or not his "I'm not a racist" bit is true or not.

    But....            doh!



    If a black basketball player dressses up as a jewish new york assemblyman, is that racist?

    At the very least the assemblyman was very insensitive and exhibited poor judgement that shouldn't be tolerated by the people he represents.

    No. It might just be weird. But it might be anti-semitic.

     

    It rather depends on what characteristics the person chooses to use in the costume in order to depict the concept of Jewishness.

    If he goes with "rich greedy banker with giant nose and bag of gold around neck", then yeah, it doesn't look so good.

     

     




     

    So if he went without the afro would it have not been "Racist" Since he'd then just be a "Black basketball player" And not a "Black basketball player with an afro"?? Basketball is primarily and proudly a black sport. How many white guys on average do you see on a pro basketball team??? One maybe two if your lucky??

    What !?

     

    First, I did not say he was being a racist. I suppose one could see it that way, but even if he's not a racist he should have realized it's just plain stupid to do that sort of thing.

    Secondly, I don't see how afro vs. non-afro makes the distinction. It strikes me as weird to think that he needs not just to be a basketball player, but a black one.

    And how many ninjas were caucasian? None. But I don't see kids dressing up as Japenese ninjas in particular.

    Just ninja costumes.




    I get what your saying WDYWN. And suprising as it may seem i actually agree with you..
