Per The Bleacher Report The Nba Reveals

the Kareem Abdul-jabbar Social Justice award as a new annual recognition. Now me personally have nothing against Kareem Abdul-jabbar but you would thank the NBa after their insanely terrible television ratings across the NBa finals in the last couple years since they’ve introduced social justice messaging or wokeness to their product. You’d think they’d want to get away from that you’d think that after the Golden Globes are going to be canceled in 2022 and all the results for all the award shows are starting to tank everywhere. You would think they would want to get away from both social justice messaging and also awards where millionaires pat other millionaires on the back. The NBa wouldn’t want this anymore, but I honestly see them as the equivalency of just some boyfriend that knows that their girlfriend absolutely hates when they pound a whole.

Beers And Play Video Games All Night

and they just think man I enjoy doing this so much that maybe if I just keep on doing it or do more of it. Eventually, they’ll turn around and realize that this is what they want when the NBa I just can’t imagine what’s going through their mind. When they say yeah you know social justice doesn’t work for us, but let’s go ahead and add more to it so let’s go and read more. This article from the bleacher report and I’ll go more into why I just think these are just terrible ideas making a worse product where I used to enjoy the NBa and now it’s kind of hard to but reading this article. It says the NBa announced the creation of the Kareem Abdul-jabbar Social Justice Champion award on Thursday.

The Leaks Of The Award Will Be

given. to a current NBa player for quote pursuing social justice and upholding the league’s decades-long values of equality, respect and inclusion Where I just don’t buy it because the whole NBa having a quality respect and inclusion like I could go on a long time of who isn’t included in the MBa, but just the idea that I mean I think it’s nonsense but going on it says the NBa will donate 100 000 to an organization of the winner’s choice and 25 000 each to organizations chosen by the chosen by the other four finalists where this could be something that would be implemented well. But I just don’t see the the this being the the desired effect. But it goes on to say that Abdul-jabbar, one of the greatest players in NBa history, said in a statement, I’m honored and grateful to be associated with this award which. Things out here on the surface they seem good they’re well intended, but they just have weird executions so reading on it says similar to the NFL‘s Walter Payton Man of the Year award, so they’re putting it in the company of saying okay like there’s somebody on the field and off the field that is exemplary both at performing in the sport and being a good citizen.

But I Think Of The Walter Payton

Man of the Year award and from the NFL I have seen I do know that there was always this weird logo that looked like Darth Vader on I think it’s Peyton or Peyton Manning’s Jersey and I didn’t know what it was and then researching more about it it was. In 2005, Peyton Manning won the award for Man of the Year, and it was this thing of that that’s a bizarre thing and good for him, but any of my viewers are you sitting at home right now or have you watching my content actually search Peyton Manning controversy or Peyton Manning backlash they may just be allegations, but it doesn’t seem that he’s the most comprehensive person that you want to be saying is the man of the year not the player of the year not the the best football player most valuable person or something it’s man of the year where it’s like yeah I enjoy hit. I believe he’s a good athlete. I think that he was funny on snl back when he was on it. But I don’t think that I want to say he’s the man of the year, which is why there’s so.

Much Backlash Of Millionaires Patting Other Millionaires On

the back saying good job you’re better than everybody else when I just don’t think that we should be idolizing these people in that particular fashion, but reading on it says The Kareem Abdul-jabbar Social Justice Champion award will focus on players who address social justice issues something. Abdul-jabbar has done throughout his life where there’s not too much controversy behind Kareem Abdul-jabbar but reading into him a bit more you see this from AbC news back in 2016, where they say NBa legend Kareem Abdul-jabbar calls Kaepernick’s anthem protest a highly patriotic in an op-ed and I have my I guess my most popular video was about Tom Brady and Tyron Matthew and just the way I saw and how I didn’t like what was going on, but then I go into Kaepernick and try to draw parallels as to what. with society in general that was met with massive backlash. Even people that had originally agreed with my train of thought they just come to Kaepernick’s defense and I never want to go into a back and forth conversation with a commenter in my Youtube channel. I think a discussion would be good, but if their opening comment is a racial slur towards me or telling me that I’m some some derogatory statement.

I Cant Really Have A Back And Forth

conversation but I guess I’ll clear the air right now on my thoughts on this whole Kaepernick situation but you look at this article from AbC news talking about how basketball legend Cream Abdul-jabbar weighed in on the controversy surrounding Kaepernick’s decision to sit during the national anthem, portraying his protest as quote highly patriotic. I think Jabari goes Kareem Abdul-jabbar goes on to say what should horrify Americans. Kaepernick’s choice to remain seated during the national anthem, but that nearly 50 years after Mammad Ali was banned from boxing for his stance and Thomas Tommy Smith and John Carlos‘s raised fist caused public ostracization so thinking back there were like you know this This wasn’t. Mammad Ali’s boxing stance. It was his stance about the Vietnam War and not participating and I have family members that served in the Vietnam War and had very very strong feelings towards Mammad Ali and his unwillingness to go to the draft and maybe i’m getting this whole message wrong but to my understanding people that serve were very upset at the idea that Mammad Ali didn’t serve because he had thoughts about it.

When Others That Had You Know

they didn’t want to serve in the words. So they still went to the military and they served in a different capacity. Elvis Presley I believe was seen you know serving the military just not on the front lines being a soldier. There was other ways to serve the country, But it was this statement that people really disliked at the time. You have this situation where where you have um what is it it’s Tommy Smith and John Carlos give what some say was a black power salute during the Olympics, and it was this thing that was highly controversial at the time, but later on people have kind of seen it in a different light where you see none of the negative aspects of it.

If You Believe There Are Negative

aspects of it and only that this was a a an amazing moment in social justice and with Mammad Ali I even received a a gift that is a sweater of a skeleton version of Mammad Ali making the stance and I didn’t even realize it was Mammad Ali just thought it was a boxer but the idea of just because we see something in a different lens now where we’ve omitted the facts that we don’t like and just highlight the things that we believe they stand for or how we interpret the person doesn’t necessarily mean we should champion them and say they’re the greatest person. I know this happens with Che guervara where celebrities wear his shirt everywhere and it’s just some sort of message about standing up for the people, but or we’re just going to forget about all the atrocities that occurred earlier and how we think that this is just something we can ignore. In this it’s this bizarre way that we portray things that happened a while ago that we don’t quite fathom every aspect of and now it’s just oh yeah. This is okay now because we don’t realize we don’t really understand the whole thing which I think is the decoy narrative in a nutshell but reading on Abc news it says that um the retired NBa star dream. Abdul Jabar noted in his piece the financial risk that Kaepernick took by speaking up for his beliefs and compared him to army reserves second Lieutenant Sam Kendricks, who while.

Competing The Real Olympics Stopped Short

while pole vaulting to honor the national anthem. Abdul-jabbar wrote that both athletes made a sacrifice what makes it well. Abdul-jabbar states what makes act truly patriotic and not just lip service when it involves personal risk or sacrifice. Both Kendricks and Kaepernick chose to express their patriotism publicly because they felt that inspiring others was more important than the personal costs.

So Heres Where I Just Dont Agree

with Kareem Abdul-jabbar anywhere in this statement right here because I don’t know anything about Sam Sam Kendrick’s second lieutenant so i looked into it on his Wikipedia and it states that he was a pole vaulter. He was a first lieutenant in the Army United States Army Reserve and in 2016. Kendricks garnered attention during the Olympics when he stopped mid-run during a pole vault attempt to stand at attention while the star-spangled banner. Because to my understanding Olympic athletes Don’t make money when they’re there.

They Can Make Endorsements When They Come

back, but they’re not paid to train. They’re not paid to be over there during the Olympics. It’s just something they do because they’re competing at the highest level patriotism possibly but this isn’t like Kendricks was doing some insanely controversial thing. This is actually pretty on brand where you have a somebody in the United States Army reserve at the Olympics representing the us the most patriotic person ever and you’re saying he stood while the star-spangled banner was played that was somehow a risk financially for him or he was going to lose fans like someone that’s cheering for the Us team at the Olympics was like you know what him standing for the star spangled banner.

I Dont Agree With That Cancel

that man I don’t see how. Is a parallel whatsoever? But the idea that they they put him next to Kaepernick, where he’s also risking some sort of personal wealth by kneeling for the national anthem and to my understanding and now I will explain that is the idea that you know when did Colin Kaepernick exactly start to kneel and it happened in August 26th of 2016, and he’s on the bench and I looked more into it from the bleacher report and says Lane Gabbard was named the 49-49ers starting quarterback over Colin Kaepernick and this occurred in the 2015 season in week nine so the Falcons vs 49ers week nine November 8th 2015. Colin Kaepernick starts kneeling after he’s no longer the starter and this he’s on the bench and looking.
