    Black people are darker and more athletic because their ancestors lived in a sunnier and warmer climate. That way they had more time to run and play. Their skin is darker because it was an adaptation to spending a lot of time in the sun.


    Did I get that right?

    this was an interesting discussion. does it still apply? let's discuss the racialism.
    Hayward has been underestimated and insulted flat out because he is white. He's supposedly nonathletic based on nothing more than the color of his skin. That's racist and or racialism (HH's silly term) without question. Hayward is extraordinarily athletic. He's proven that without question he has the athletic ability to compete in the NBA. Anyone who wants to diminish that based on his skin color is a racist.

    In case it hasn't been said already, there is no such thing as "reverse racism." Racism is racism no matter what race it is ism-ing toward.

    Great job. I love watching Hayward block someone because it is not just the media, but other players that doubt him as well.
    Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.

    All I want to say is that "reverse racism" is a false term. There is nothing reverse about it. It is a term used by the media in an attempt to sound educated and informed. Racism is racism. Period.

    I love it when gameface has the opportunity to just GO OFF like that... it's a nice salve for his otherwise broken-hearted, lukewarm, and intractable libertarian angst. Thank you jazzfanz, Hayward, and Mr. Castleton.

    The last sentence is correct. The others, not so much.

    Since racism is a power imbalance based on punching down, there is no reverse racism, because that would be punching up.

    I disagree. You can still have racism in an equal "power" situation.
