NBA Referees Hatin’ on Black Players?

Referee and Tim┬áDuncanHave your read this study yet? It’s been all over the news since yesterday. Basically, a recent study shows that white referees are more likely to call fouls on black players than white.

This is the dumbest thing I think I’ve ever heard of. Here’s why:

  • Has anyone else noticed that white guys don’t get much playing time in the NBA? I mean, most people have to play at least 5 minutes just to have the chance to foul someone in a game.
  • Could it be that black players do foul more often? I know the black guys I play with around here are tougher than most of us white guys. And that’s a compliment.

Luckily, many NBA players have already spoken up, showing they’re thinking along the same lines.

Interesting that the study came out during the playoffs. I’m SURE that wasn’t planned.
