Clearly, women and men are not physically the same.

I don't know much about basketball but we need to cancel this B I G O T and make sure he never plays in MLB again.

Former airline pilot Kareem Abdul-Jabbar


He was the co-pilot. It's a different job altogether.

> MTV's long-running The Challenge is one of the most compelling competition shows around, but it is not familyfriendly. The mostly 20-something athletes live together in a house, face tough competitions, and conspire against one another in order to win the million-dollar prize. With all its sexual tension and betrayals, it's a Gen Z version of Lord of the Flies.Many of the males are actively misogynistic, though they would vehemently deny it.

The Challenge isn't a Gen Z show.  It's a Gen X show.

Gen Z wouldn't put up with the level of misogyny that that show has historically had from some of its biggest competitors.

I've always enjoyed his writing. Particularly "On The Shoulders of Giants" and "A Season on the Reservation."

"A study of descriptions of Black quarterback prospects in the NFL Draft section of the Sports Illustrated website between 1998 and 2007 showed that Black quarterbacks were lauded for their athleticism but criticized for their athletes, they are not equal. Some are downright cringeworthy."

Something went wrong in the editing process here, I assume, unless Kareem had a very heavy burtation in the middle of that paragraph.

Women and men are physically different. That's all there is to it. Woke idiots need to get the fark over it. If you disagree, sign your wife/girlfriend/daughter/mother up to fight Francis Ngannou.

I certainly don't agree with everything Kareem writes or says, but there's no denying he's an interesting guy with a very unique perspective.  I appreciate his thoughtfulness on a wide variety of issues, and his willingness to put himself out there and get involved in public debate.
