This is huge. The Bucks were the favorites to win.

From the interwebs:

Bucks player Sterling Brown had a knee to his neck and was punched by Milwaukee PD for parking incorrectly.

Former Buck John Henson had the cops called on him while shopping for jewelry, just for being black.

This is personal to them.

I don't blame them. Of course, there will be the inevitable backlash from some fans. They will bash the players and call them entitled and spoiled. They will assume that because these players have money and fame, that means they are completely immune from police violence, racial profiling, and bigotry in general. But if you're black in America...you're about three degrees of separation away from someone who has absolutely been affected by those problems, if not you yourself.

Any Chicago area folk here...

Well, this could add a new level interest to the shootings in Kenosha. Kyle Rittenhouse is the teen who was arrested for those shootings. Kyle is from Antioch, Illinois and reports have said he was part of the Antioch Police Explorer program. As I understand it, that program is for teens who express an interest in law enforcement.

Anyway, think back to Officer Gliniewicz of Fox Lake in 2015. Gliniewicz is the guy who faked his death as you may remember. Gliniewicz was in charge of the Fox Lake Police Explorer programs; Fox Lake is next to Antioch, IL. Besides stealing money from that organization, it was also thought Gliniewicz was creating his own right wing group. I wonder if that also spilled over into the Antioch group?

The Sterling Brown arrest video is infuriating to watch.  The officers clearly farked with him simply because he was black.  There wasn't another car in that parking lot, zero reason to harass him like that.  The only reason his situation got any media traction at all was because the officers messed with a famous person. And that type of stuff has been going on for decades in the US.  Good on the Bucks and the rest of the NBA.

Oh fark off.  If they didn't finish the postseason, you (and guys like you) would claim it didn't matter anyways because this wasn't a "real" season due to the virus.

What the Bucks decided, and then the rest of the players, is unprecedented.  It should be applauded and hopefully this snowballs into something more meaningful.

Please explain.
Leninism - permanent revolution. Stalinism - one state socialism. They are quite different world views.

Gotta be quick on this one.

The Explorers are a fantastic program for young people interested in law enforcement. Each one is run differently but the main purpose is to let kids get a small view of what many different aspects of law enforcement are. From helping with non-important paperwork, going out on ride-alongs, helping out with traffic and the flow of people at events, and just general things like that which aren't considered overly dangerous. You'll get to watch a bunch of really cool training stuff because hey, you're a body.

I've been told that some of these kids were in Explorers.

On a related note. Four years ago, today.... Kaepernick knelt for the first time.

Marxism is a method of socioeconomic analysis that uses a materialist interpretation of historical development, better known as historical materialism, to understand class relations and social conflict as well as a dialectical perspective to view social transformation.

Translated: a method of studying the socioeconomic system using real world data and history to better understand class relations and the social conflict as well as those debates in order to consider 'what is next'.

And he nailed Capitalism.
"Marx believed that the capitalist bourgeoisie (wealthy) and their economists were promoting what he saw as the lie that "the interests of the capitalist and of the worker are [...] one and the same". Thus, he believed that they did this by purporting the concept that "the fastest possible growth of productive capital" (making money) was best not only for the wealthy capitalists but also for the workers because it provided them with employment.

"The power of one social class to control the means of production enables its exploitation of other classes.

"In pre-capitalist economies, exploitation of the worker was achieved via physical coercion (slavery, feudalism). Under the capitalist mode of production, those results are more subtly achieved because workers do not own the means of production and must "voluntarily" enter into an exploitive work relationship with a capitalist in order to earn the necessities of life."


It's time this nation started to relearn what was learned the hard way in the 1800s and early 1900s. It is important to understand this in order to understand race in America and a system that ignores the people during record unemployment, homelessness and enduring inequality - especially during a Pandemic.

Which will be ignorant of those jerks because at least two of the Milwaukee Bucks have been harassed for being black in the very recent past, including one having an officer knee on his neck.

I think it is great that black people with power are starting to do something concrete about people being shot/murdered for the color of their skin or for protesting.

About time.

They, even more than most of us, know that money is all that matters to the ownerclass, so hit them where it will hurt, since most players have the money to stay out and the ordinary person most likely does not (though with the job losses, that may change).

Take all sports ball away and people might start to pay attention.
