Biscuit of The Week

A slew of well deserving candidates were considered this week. Joy Reid got her own article this week. So did Adam “shifty” Schiff. The moron in Colorado who announced at a town meeting that they would not recite the pledge of allegiance. By the way on that guy, the audience stood up and did it anyway while he sat there stunned. Boom.

But in the end it’s another celebrity/athlete that opened his mouth and exposed the complete and utter ignorance that exemplifies a true biscuit. Ladies and gentleman I give you ESPN “analyst” Jalen Rose.

After making a go-zillion dollars in the NBA Jalen donned the suit and tie to become an NBA analyst for ESPN. He gets paid to be an opinionated blowhard, and his latest “hot take” is really something.

You may have seen that the final roster for the USA basketball squad for the Tokyo Olympics was recently announced. Jalen had a problem with the roster.

He was upset that Kevin Love made the team. Love has one gold medal from the 2012 Olympics. He’s been a solid contributor to USA Basketball, an organization that not every professional player shows support for. So why is Jalen upset that Love was chosen for the roster?

Because he’s white.

Let that sink in for a minute.

Rose said on his show yesterday, and I quote: “But this level of, and I got a word for it … Kevin Love is on the team because of tokenism. Don’t be scared to make an all-Black team representing the United States of America. I’m disappointed by that.”

Yes, he believes the ONLY reason Love is on the team is because USA Basketball is “scared” to send an all black basketball team to represent our country at the Olympics.

Never mind that other USA all stars like James Harden are injured and can’t play. Never mind that nobody blames Paul George for not wanting to go through what he did again. Forget about the fact that Love is a solid player. Nope, this is because we needed a token white dude.

That question’s answer is pretty obvious. Jalen, you’re an idiot.

Perhaps someone should sit him down in front of YouTube and watch Doctor King’s speech – which at this point clearly needs to be REQUIRED in our schools …. several excerpts apply here.

“We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back.”

“I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.”

And of course: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

As long as knuckleheads like Jalen Rose spew stupid ass shit like he did, I’m afraid Doctor King’s dream is going to remain just that.
