    Knicks great calls for all-black league amid Clippers race fiasco

    On Saturday night, Johnson tweeted: “Black people your Focusing on the wrong thing. We should be focusing on having our own, Own team own League! To For Self!!’’
    The initial indication was Johnson was calling for an all-African-American league complete with black ownership.

    I have learned we have many folks who are so racially sensitive they see it where there is none.

    Now, if you had anyone in any sport say the following and used "white" instead of black, what would the fallout be?

    Another question... would you be for or against an league that as its qualifying factor is race?

    One old man makes some stupid remarks while pissed at his girlfriend, and the world has to come to an end. Grow up and move on.

    Go for it !

    The NBA has been trying to get away from the ghetto thug atmosphere that some of the black players brought into the League.

    They realize that Fights, arrest and multiple babies out if wedlock dont appeal to average fan who comes to the game. It doesn't appeal to the Corporations that spend Billions on endorsements either.

    Not saying a all black league would necessarily turn ghetto but something tells me their core standards might be a little different than the NBA.

    Sorry but in the case of the owner, that was completely racist comments he made. Hands down racist.

    Now this guy calling for an "all-black" league is no better IMO because he wants to exclude white people.

    I also don't think this is something the NBA should act upon nor the government. Now, people have every right to boycott this guy and if he lives in a state that doesn't allow recording without notification he could sue for damages against who recorded him.

    The real issue here is Johnson's grammar, that was almost illegible.

    The owner of a mostly (all?) black team makes racist remarks and unsurprisingly people freak out. An old basketball legend makes remarks about creating an all black league and people freak out. I think I see a pattern here.

    Yes, thugs and ghetto, that is the takeaway. The core standards of these people is most definitely suspect...

    Terrifying, I escorted my wife to work this morning with a diverse group of bodyguards so that nobody would accuse us of racism.
