Isiah Thomas is racist; also boring

by The Cavalier on September 18, 2007 · 13 comments

At some point during the Isiah Thomas sexual harassment trial, they’re going to have the beginning of the NBA preseason.

Will it be as exciting and revealing as the trial? Doubtful.

Will it include the participation of the Knicks Head Coach himself?

Honestly, that’s starting to look shaky – already there is speculation that David Stern is going to lay some suspensions down on Zeke, and possibly ownership, as well.

Why…? Well, because of stuff like this.

“I never cursed at Miss Sanders. Now have I ever used curse words around her, yes, but at her? No,” Thomas said in response to questions posed by attorneys.

On the tape, Thomas also said that he would find it more offensive if a white male called a black female a “bitch,” than if a black male used the same term when speaking to a black female. Browne Sanders has said that Thomas repeatedly called her that.

The “swore around her” and “swore at her” demarcation sounds a bit like the Clintonesque “sexual relations” situation, yes?

Just as bad is the other stuff, however. That’s flat-out racism, and the previous allegations that Isiah hates white people seem to be true. Except there it seems like he hates black women, as well.*

(Asians, Indians, Latinos, and Canadians…sorry. He feels nothing for any of you.)

What this really boils down to is as follows – as a young, white, American male, who exactly are we allowed to call a “bitch”? Is there a chart somewhere that’ll tell us what the etiquette is?

It’s a shame there’s no law that would allow Zeke to go on trial for this, because we’d love to hear a full explanation for this theory of his. We’d also love if this thing were on Court TV, as we mentioned the last time we posted, which was like 3 weeks ago.

* Remember – this is okay, because as Isiah will tell you in response to almost anything, he had a rough childhood on the streets of Chicago! That makes irrational hatred of others and asinine, salary-cap killing trades acceptable.

NOTE: The judge wants to hustle things along – he saw one of the jurors falling asleep the other day. We hereby volunteer to sit on the jury – we’re sure our long history of writing about Isiah won’t color our opinion at all.

I thought this was a family friendly site? What is all this talk of female dogs? I believe you meant “b%&#h”.

Boney if you’re trying to make me shut down until gametime, I’m real close anyway.

I’m not trying to do anything! You’re so sensitive nowadays… you need some Midol?

my extensive collection of rap albums and porn tells me that it is ok for black men to use the “b” word and white men can use the “c” word.

i hope that helps, cav.

and i thought they settled this, already? i mean, obviously not, but i could’ve sworn i read that it was settled.
it’s easy to root for crazy starbury and the rest of the knicks (jury’s out on zach), but zeke is looking like a real @$$hole.

it’s ok for me to say that since i’m a black man.

you can call me a bitch.
I’d like it.

“Around” her just means in her presence.

“I fucking hate white people.”

“Bitch, I fucking hate white people.”

Totally different.

You’re missing the point Cavalier. Isiah is racist, sure, but he’s not nearly as racist as he is sexist. Nice subliminiminal advertisement on that truck behind Zeke btw.

how do you say “subliminiminal”? I tried saying it and I got tongue tied

That Fergie chick is ugly (uh huh)
But she’s got a nice body (oh yea).

I really miss that post. Cavalier you need to make a top 10 yay posts of all time post. I would cry. PLEASE.

11 The Cavalier September 19, 2007 at 2:12 pm

I love that one too. I may do that if only to recall the glories before the new glories.

This is not blog suicide. It’s blog depression.
