Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, September 23, 2017

North Carolina's 2017 national championship men's basketball team will not visit the White House, a team spokesman said on Saturday, though the Tar Heels were invited to visit, as is the custom for teams that win college men's basketball and football national championships. ... Whether championship teams will visit the White House has become part of the national political dialogue since Trump took office in January. Stephen Curry, the Golden State Warriors All-Star guard, has said since the Warriors won the NBA championship that he doesn't want to go to the White House. One of his teammates, Kevin Durant, has said the same.

On Saturday morning, the president responded to Curry's desire not to visit the White House. In a post on Twitter, the president wrote, "Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team. Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!"

Funny how Trump didnt disinvite the Patriots when Tom Brady and other players said they wouldn't go. I guess its only insulting when black athletes do it.

LeBron James: annual salary $30 million. Net worth $400 million. He's practically a slave. Free the slaves!

#5 he is a slave if he's not allowed to
speak. He didn't steal the money.

I swear, you make Mackris seem reasonable lately.
And don't tell Un, but if he fires his missiles over the north pole he can hit the east coast.

Who says he can't speak? He can mouth off 24/7 for all I care. Or burn the Americsn flag. I believe in the 1st amendment, a glorious achievement of classical liberalism.

I get that he's hardly a prime example of being repressed but pointing out individual cases doesn't address the broader, systemic point.

Only a lazy mind would think so.

Curry objected to the team going, I didn't see Tom say the Patriots shouldn't go ..... huge difference.

Only a lazy mind would think there was systemic racism, when there thousands of exceptions.

You still didn't state how Nulli's post was racist.... but hey name calling and as hominen attack is one of your specialties, you, and Corky....

It's a silly tradition anyway.

It is, but here is the thing we as a nation need a common bond, a common agreement. What you are seeing is the tearing down of trust, the idea that the Flag, or the Anthem are some how political is divisive.

I don't mind people burning the flag, but when in a situation such as showing reverence for the great nation we inherited we come together to show faith that despite our differences we still believe in the system/process we all inherited.

And statisticians would think it. And anyone who actually works in the system. Or anyone who reads the news. Or anyone with a functioning mind, lazy or otherwise.

You know, anyone with a mind at all knows there is systemic racism. So I have to wonder what your problem is.

There's no such thing as systemic racism. Black people who say there is are mistaken/ignorant/liars.

--The Right

If black people say there is systemic racism against blacks, and white people say there isn't, who is right?
