The called them the New York Niggers...

I wanted to talk to you today about Michael Ray Richardson and his comments about Jews, but the best blog on the internet said everything that needs to be said here. Excellent reading.

I just want to say one thing: Guys like Michael Ray have probably been subjected to more racism through the years than almost anyone in America. I can't imagine how many Staten Islandites opened up the Post, read Michael's "The Ship Be Sinkin'" quote, and thought to themselves, "great, we've got this dumb fuckin nigger ruining our team, what ever happened to Bill Bradley..." and so forth. It's a shame that Richardson had such a tough standard applied to him for comments that were fairly innocuous. He's barely even a public figure.

More to come about other basketball stuff.
