All White Basketball League Formed
Written under: Human Interest, Sports
A new professional basketball league called the All-American Basketball Alliance (AABA) has recently sent out a press release saying that it intends to start its inaugural season in June where natural born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are the only ones eligible to play in the league.
Despite this statement, AABA commissioner Don “Moose” Lewis insists that he’s not racist and simply wants to get away from the “street-ball” played by “people of color” and go back to “fundamental basketball.”
In a further statement, Lewis cites the recent incidents of bad behavior by NBA players, implying that such actions would never happen with white players. And thus, his decision to start an All White Basketball League.
The AABA is initially targeting Southern cities, but one proposed city – Augusta, Georgia, is opposed to the league. Several other cities have reportedly told Lewis to “stay out of town.”
