According to yesterday’s Augusta Chronicle, that city is one of twelve where the All-American Basketball Alliance hopes to set up a team for its inaugural season of professional basketball this summer. Interested in applying? Make sure you fit the league’s requirements, as stated in the AABA’s official press release: “Only players that are natural born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league.” Oh, it’s one of those leagues. Don “Moose” Lewis, the league’s chummily-nicknamed commissioner, explained why he felt that a whites-only sports league with franchises all across the South is a good idea:

“I don’t hate anyone of color. But people of white, American-born citizens are in the minority now. Here’s a league for white players to play fundamental basketball, which they like. Would you want to go to the game and worry about a player flipping you off or attacking you in the stands or grabbing their crotch? That’s the culture today, and in a free country we should have the right to move ourselves in a better direction.”

As a person of white, I’d just like to say that I hate fundamental basketball, and I grab my crotch every time I shoot, pass or dribble the ball. (HipHopWired)
