These three assholes just sold there souls to Drumpf. I don't know about the other 2 but the Ball boy he comes from a two parent home. So that myth flies right out the window.

Stupid ass comments...like they forever Trump slaves for fucking saying thank you. That was just part of the pr. Trump probably had little to do with the release but he had something to do with it. As always he just wants his fucking ego fed but stfu with all the "Trump owns them now" shit. It aint that fucking serious people. In case you havent noticed, them boys are not in a position do anything but what their told to do

Think about it this way. This was all some PR stunt. Ain't no way in hell China gon' let 3 BLACK men get away with stealing in their country. They are notoriously racist and would have pressed charges to the fullest extent of their law. Now, Trump needed these niglets in order to make it look like he had the power to change the Chinese gvmt's mind. Bullshit. It was all a show to get Trump some praise like he did something right for once. Lavar probably staged the whole damn thing.

8:19 no judgment but you sound naive...Trump does nothing for free and this was a BIG favor. People of color/African descent are not welcome in Eastern Asia, India, Southeast Asia, etc. Stealing is considered incredibly rude and punishable by hard jail time and hard labor. (Also remember the sheer number of African migrant workers who are go missing is staggering but not discussed in Western media.)

Quid Pro Quo is real and I wonder what they'll have to do to pay back this favor. I dislike Trump but this is why it pays to be strategic and at least have a dialogue with people you hate. You'll never know who you're going to need. (Especially if your children are really dumb and easily led.)

But who goes to luxury stores where security is already high in a country with millions of CCTV cameras and survelillence to steal? As a person of color in a country that hates people of color? 8:38 you might be onto something. Lil' Bell looks scared so maybe he wasn't in on the plan.

8:49 I’m sorry, but I beg to disagree. I have traveled to Asia within the past month and felt more comfortable there than I did in certain parts of the US. When I’m in the Deep South, I’m always on high alert. I’m not saying that Asians are not racist, but I think saying that we are not welcome in other countries is what keeps black people from traveling internationally and experiencing other cultures, which can be fulfilling and enriching.

As for these boys, did their asses just admit to stealing???? What idiots. And what does this mean for Their NBA career since they need to play at least one year in college??? I guess some school would be happy to have them on their roster

9:41 thanks for the feedback. So glad you had a good time, though other people of color have not had the same experiences. I love to travel, but China is not on my list due to this:

I'm not ashamed to be Black and feel it's no impediment to world travel, but I'd never go to China, Italy (due to fascists behavior on the rise) or Spain (Catalan "independence" is just a front for white nationalism.)

Just like State Department alerts, Black folks should read world news and be aware before traveling. That said, safe travels. Be well!

This was a PR stunt to boost Trump's brand. Make him look like a diplomat and deflect from the Russian situation.

Also, saving 3 black boys from the Chinese... he can hang his hat on that and say hey Puerto Rico, Mexico, the Virgin Islands, etc... weren't all racially motivated acts.

L. Eller said...

Yes! I totally agree we should always be diligent and maybe my privilege as a woman also helped. A black man may have a different experience.

Great resources! I just want black people to get out and see things. Many of us don’t even have a passport.

these 3 messed up. if you're in a foreign country, all you had to do was lie and say you're Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan and Lebron James. that's how you get free stuff. and if they refuse, just tell them to charge it to their accounts! LOL!

9:41 high alert?? For fucking what? Im sorry but I was born and raised in the smack middle of GA. Sure I have encountered some racist motherfuckers in my lifetime but the whole perception that you're in danger cause you in the deep south is bullshit....let me tell you the ugly truth. I worry waaay more about getting killed by another black than some redneck. My odds of getting killed by another black is much higher than the kkk. Of course that has much to do with the higher concentration of blacks though. Ill put it like this. I went to a conference in Montana. The state has only 6000 blacks to a million people. States with numbers like that is where you should be on fucking high alert lmao

L. Eller said...

I’m from the south and you’re damn right I’m on high alert anywhere there are a bunch of white men who voted for Trump. I don’t care if it’s Montana, eastern Oregon (where I just was for work) or Texas (where I’m at now for work). They have become emboldened and it’s not that I think they would kill me, it’s more about harassing and accosting. They will always go for the women and children of a race. You see these white supremacists ain’t squaring up on the south side of Chicago with our men.

Better safe than sorry. *kanye shrug*

Take heed people you all went with one of them did it, only one store, etc..

Morally the truth of the story came out - wonder who was behind that? All eyes on UCLA in dealing with these rats - what an embarrassment to our country.

They're damn lucky. That's all I have to say.
