"Girrrlll, that's what they all do: Cling to a sista while they're broke and in school. Then get a contract and put a ring on the white girl hand." Yeah, if you haven't said it you've heard it. The greatest issue in American racism is not separation of the races; in this melting pot we call America, it is actually the sexuality of the races. The notion, the irrational fear, that the black man is some brainless sex fiend fixated on white women, has fueled the hate groups.
The truth of the matter is that 90 percent of African-American married NBA players (such as Pat Ewing, Tim Hardaway, and Mitch Richmond) are married to African-American women. But most people believe that the majority of African-American NBA players are married to non-African-Americans. Why? Because the media highlights and shows the African-American player's wife who is not African-American five times more than showing the African-American wife. This biased or selective coverage gives people the false impression.
Look at the marital status of the 2001 NBA All-Star rosters:
Player Marital Status
Allen Iverson Married to African-American woman
Tracy McGrady Married to African-American woman
Alonzo Mourning Married to African-American woman
Vince Carter Married to African-American woman
Grant Hill Married to African-American woman
Allan Houston Married to African-American woman
Stephon Marbury Married to African-American woman
Anthony Mason Not married
Dikembe Mutombo Married to African-American woman
Theo Ratliff Married to African-American woman
Glenn Robinson Married to African-American woman
Latrell Spreweel Engaged to African-American woman
Jerry Stackhouse Married to African-American woman
Player Marital Status
Jason Kidd Married to Arabic-Indian woman
Kobe Byrant Married to Hispanic-Caucasian
Shaquille O'Neal Engaged to African-American woman
Tim Duncan Married to Caucasian
Chris Webber Not married
Kevin Garnett Not married
Karl Malone Married to Philippino woman
Gary Payton Married to African-American woman
David Robinson Married to Hispanic woman
Rasheed Wallace Married to African-American woman
Other Examples of How the Media Distorts Perceptions During the 2000 NBA playoffs, Shaquille O'Neal, Los Angeles Laker, announced his engagement to an African-American woman. The media did not cover the engagement. When fellow LA-Laker Kobe Bryant announced his engagement to a non-African-American, all the media was abuzz with the story.
It was something that was concerning me.

As a wise man once told me in second grade. "Nany nany poo poo ... cheaters never prosper"....
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 15, 2007 - Baseball superstar Barry Bonds was charged Thursday with perjury and obstruction of justice for allegedly lying when he said he did not use performance-enhancing drugs.
The indictment, unsealed Thursday by federal prosecutors in San Francisco, is the culmination of a four-year federal probe into whether he lied under oath to a grand jury investigating steroid use by elite athletes.
The indictment comes three months after the 43-year-old Bonds, one of the biggest names in professional sports, passed Hank Aaron to become baseball's career home run leader, his sport's most hallowed record. Bonds, who parted ways with the San Francisco Giants at the end of last season and has yet to sign with another team, also holds the game's single-season home run record of 73.As a wise man once told me in second grade.
