NBA on diversity

Associated Press, by Staff

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/4/2014 3:54:20 PM

NEW YORK — The Rev. Al Sharpton and other civil rights leaders pressed for greater diversity in NBA front offices in a meeting with Commissioner Adam Silver on Wednesday amid discussions about racial issues raised by the ouster of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. A group including Sharpton, National Urban League President Marc Morial and incoming NAACP President Cornell Brooks met with Silver for more than an hour at the league’s Manhattan offices. They described the session as constructive and pressed for diversity in front offices and among suppliers. “There must be serious dialogue around ownership and business engagement

The black population of the US is 17%. The NBA should limit players to the percentage reflected in the population. Front office, back office, front court, back court, it is only fair. Thanks, Rev Al, for finally spotting some actual discrimination. (And to think I always considered him a buffoon!)

Never mind that diversity in the front office usually results in a team that stinks. But then I´m sure the meddlesome Reverands also have plans to ensure equal outcome on the court. Everyone makes the playoffs and gets a ring and a trophy!

Degenerates like sharpton and the fools who fawn over him love to preach freedom, but they´re among those least likely to actually embrace the free market and let things play out naturally. It isn´t racist, it´s what it is. No one is blocking people of a particular ethnic background from owning teams or working in the front office. But forcing the issue and artificially manipulating who sits in which chair based on the color of their skin...well, that´s racist pure and simple.

According to refugee data from the U.S. Department of State, the federal government did not grant refugee protection to a single person from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador or Mexico in fiscal year 2013. Now, almost all of the unaccompanied children illegally crossing into the U.S. from Mexico are coming from those nations, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other congressional Democrats have described these illegal aliens as “refugees.” In the seven fiscal years from 2007 through 2013, a mere five Guatemalans and 25 Hondurans were granted refugee status in the United States. During that time, zero citizens of El Salvador

The House voted to block performance bonuses for senior Internal Revenue Service executives Wednesday, The Hill reported. “Giving out bonuses is ludicrous and amounts to a slap in the face to the American public,” said Rep. Paul Gosar, who introduced the amendment. “They should not be given performance awards in the wake of one of the largest scandals in recent history.” The amendment passed by a vote of 282-138-1, with only Democrats voting against it. “To suggest and paint with a broad brush the whole IRS and say that everyone there at the senior level is not worthy of a

The Bay State is being asked by President Obama to shelter some of the tens of thousands of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children spilling over the nation’s southern borders, Gov. Deval Patrick revealed today. “We have been asked by the administration ... to consider whether we can shelter some number of unaccompanied minors and we’re trying to sort out what that number is,” Patrick told reporters. “We’re trying to sort out about what our capacities are, what the circumstances would be in the case of unaccompanied minors at the border it would be in some sort of secure facility,” Patrick added. “It’s

Via the Daily Caller, an elegant opening statement from today’s House Rules Committee hearing on Boehner’s separation-of-powers lawsuit. You’ve heard him make this argument before but he’s getting more apocalyptic with each appearance before Congress — and who can blame him? The last time he testified, Obama wasn’t babbling to activists about amnestizing five million illegals with a stroke of his pen. Today Turley calls O’s rhetoric about unilateral action “extreme” and warns the committee that Congress will effectively self-destruct if the executive is allowed to do what he wants whenever there’s gridlock.

"We are here today to find concrete opportunities, to get past the rhetoric to get results," Garcetti said in his introductory remarks.

It’s one thing to take care of illegal immigrants who come to America and are under the age of 18 (before sending them back), and it’s another to burn through taxpayer money rolling out the red carpet. From the Gateway Pundit: The Obama administration has awarded a $50 million contract to a charitable group to buy a Texas resort hotel and transform it in to a 600 bed facility for juvenile illegal aliens. That resort hotel? The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites in Weslaco, Texas – a generously acommodated resort with such amenities as an outdoor swimming pool (pictured above).

Car theft is a major problem in America, but most people would agree that it’s hard to lose a car. As an investigation by the Daily Beast has learned, however, the Pentagon has somehow lost multiple cars belonging to American servicemen and women. Here’s how it happens: The Pentagon often reassigns their soldiers to different stations throughout the world, and helps their families defray the financial costs of moving — including the cost of shipping their cars. For decades, the Pentagon contracted this service out to American Auto Logistics (AAL), but replaced them this summer with a company called International

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
