    Sports Website Mocks 'Exceedingly White' People Celebrating Win at NBA Game Read mor

    How quickly might a writer be fired or reprimanded for mocking the appearance of a group of minorities as they celebrated their team's victory at a professional sporting event?

    Consider that as you read sports website SB Nation's "White People Celebrate Heat Loss in Exceedingly White Fashion."

    Below that disgusting headline was the following picture with this caption and subheadline:



    White people, in their natural habitat. - USA TODAY Sports

    Who are the happiest people when the Bulls snap the Heat's losing streak? White people.

    From there, author Bill Hanstock - whose Twitter profile boasts that he's an editor and contributor to this website - wrote, "On Wednesday night, the Chicago Bulls halted the impressive winning streak of the Miami Heat at 27 games. Luckily, a gaggle of exceedingly white dudes had courtside seats (because white people looooooove courtside seats) and treated us to the above picture."

    Next on the agenda were zoomed in shots of the men in the picture above with similarly disgraceful commentary such as:

    "This guy is pretty white, I guess."

    "Hey, it's the white Lewis Black."

    "Just two white guys, enjoying each others' company, wearing their finest Cherokee-brand shirts."

    "If Wallace Shawn were an even whiter Gollum, you'd STILL have to ramp several notches up the White Guy Meter to arrive at ... THIS."

    Hanstock finished his piece saying, "Never change, white people. You are a GOLD MINE."

    You think he'd still be an editor and contributor to this website if the word "black" appeared throughout this piece instead of "white" and the picture in question was a bunch of African-American Bulls fans celebrating last night's victory in Chicago?

    No doubt. The more diverse the country becomes the more discrimination segments of society will receive.

    I find it funny that they can post this and trash mouth white people like this, but if a white person were to do it to a crowd of black people it'd make national headlines and you'd hear calls for a "National Debate" on race relations.

    Getting pretty tired of this crap.

    I think race jokes are funny.
    People need to have thicker skin about it.

    Nice eve avatar, Caldari and Min are my favorite.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Yea, I mean if the person isn't trying to be a racist ass hat.
    It's cool with me.

    Like I said, people need to thicken their skin, that goes for all races.

    Started at launch, but haven't played in quite a while.
    Started as an industrial corp, changed to dedicate wormhole operations, but that's exhausting without a support network.
    Most of my pilots were very newbish to wormhole operations.

    It still came off to me as an under the table jab at white folks. Joke or not, I found it offensive.

    Awesome. I haven't dabbled much with WH content (other than blapping a few unaware noctis with a stealth bomber.)

    I'm in a major nullsec alliance with a carrier alt.
