Dear Mrs. Steve Nash, Is Steve Nash a Racist?

Dear Mrs. Steve Nash,

I know it's been a long time since I sent you a fan letter, but is has also been a long time since your husband has been in the news or done anything worthy of getting my attention.

Also this whole fan letter thing never caught on with my readers since most of my readers are Internet geeks who don't play sports and hate jocks because they are always getting the crap kicked out of them by guys like your husband.

The rest of my readers are women and most women hate sports except for those stalker groupie women who love the free meal ticket that a professional ball players salary and fame can get them.

Obviously, I am not talking about you Mrs. Nash. I am talking about those nasty skanks like Shaune Bagwell (above) who try and bed themselves a millionaire by having unprotected sex and getting knocked up just so they can sit at home all day and get fat. And of course I am talking the 6 women who have illegitimate children with Seattle Supersonic star Shawn Kemp.

The reason I am writing you is I just wanted to let you know that a lot of bloggers out there are calling Steve Nash a racist because he went after a black basket ball player during a fight that broke out between the Suns and Houston Rockets.

I know Steve did not cause the fight. That was cheap shot artist Matt Barnes. He was the asshole that started every thing. All Steve did was make sure that Alston got his hat handed to him after sticking up for himself.

I don't think that makes Steve a racist, but plenty of other people do.

Where did you disappear to, buddy?

Good post about Nash. You are going to see more and more of this weird shit. The root of this problem lies 4-square with the Big Pink People but unfortunately it's going to the small handful of people of all self-identities with good consciences up in Big Sammy to sort this out.

Do you read Dave Zirin? He has a lot of very cool insights into race and sports. On the other hand, you can also get interesting though weirded-out insights from Jason Whitlock, the anti-black, black ex-jock writer.

The European invasion is a very good steam valve on this in basketball though, creating a non-American, highly-skilled, buffer with an emphasis on outside shooting that has worked. When it was like a Tiny Archibald province and especially with Richardson and Williams of the early 80s Knicks, the gunners were the perfect targets for racist sportswriters (most of them!) but especially Dick Young.

The Euros are also good in that it makes the game for excellent White players so much less like being a right-wing student in the Yale deconstruvist department or MIT lingusitic department had been earlier.

And everybody's got to get a fuckin handle on the Black v Gay thing that showed up in Prop 8, despite Obama's best efforts. Younger people are just going to have to LEAD if the politicians and the preachers won't.
