ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith Claims “Tanking” in Professional Sports is Racist

Published

On Thursday’s edition of ESPN’s “First Take,” co-hosts Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman locked horns in a contentious debate over the idea of “tanking” in professional sports, specifically the NBA.

The debate over tanking has raged on for years now with NBA teams, like the Philadelphia 76ers, deciding to spend a few years actively trying to finish the season with as few wins as possible in an effort to maximize their chances for a top draft pick in the next year’s draft, all in the hope of being able to draft a few future superstars to build their franchise around.

Of course, while there is plenty of subject matter to argue about when it comes to the tanking discussion, Smith chose the popular path of ESPN employees these days – he played the race card.

Apparently, according to Smith, tanking is racist because black executives in professional sports would never have the “luxury” of being able to actively try to lose while keeping their jobs.

“So let me get this straight. We can sit out there and take 18, 19, 20 to 25-year-olds and beyond and tell them to compete with one another, but ok, an executive who usually is white in situations like this, by the way, you don’t even have to compete. You can stink up the joint, stink it up for years to come… I’m saying that the luxury of being able to lose on purpose and still have tenure — it ain’t happening for one of the brothers. Let me be very, very clear,” Smith claimed.

He then went on to directly challenge his co-host, Kellerman, a guy who’s taken the social justice warrior path many times himself, like when he seriously suggested banning Notre Dame’s “Fighting Irish” mascot because it’s racist.

“Tell me one African-American in the history of sports as an executive that had the license to lose on purpose and tell the world that’s what they were doing and still keep their job,” Smith yelled at Kellerman. “Take your time. I’ll wait.”

A man wearing a “Justice for Breonna Taylor” t-shirt allegedly shot and killed three people at a Louisville, Kentucky bar owned by a retired police officer on Friday night.

33-year old Michael E. Rynes was arrested by Louisville police on Friday after the mass shooting event, in which he allegedly shot three people at random at Bungalow Joe’s Bar and Grill. They all died of their injuries.

Eyewitness accounts describe Rynes as wearing a ‘Justice for Breonna Taylor’ t-shirt when he entered the establishment and began shooting.

Rynes would be arrested by Louisville Police hours after the shooting while hiding in a bush near Bungalow Joe’s. He matched the description given in initial 911 calls regarding the shooting, and possessed a firearm with ammunition used at the bar shooting. The 33-year old Rynes, whose social media contains content expressing his support for left-wing BLM causes and NFL anthem kneeling, was arrested and charged with three counts of murder for his alleged involvement in the shootings.

Rynes was seen smiling in photography of his arrest hours after the bar shooting.

Taylor was a Louisville woman who was shot and killed by police earlier this year during an operation in which they were seeking to apprehend her drug dealer boyfriend. Progressive and BLM activists have sought to publicize the controversial shooting-which remains under investigation by the Kentucky Attorney General- as an alternative to the incidences involving Jacob Blake and George Floyd, both of whom had extensive criminal histories when they resisted arrest for crimes.

Nobody had ever seen this guy before,Said restaurant owner and retired law enforcement officer Joe Bishop, referring to the shooter. “It was a totally random act.

26-year old Toreon Hudson, 48-year old William Smallwood, and 24-year old Steven Head were killed in Rynes alleged shooting rampage. Two of the murder victims were white, and one was black.

This appears to be the latest Black Lives Matter mass shooting, following Micah Xavier’s mass shooting of five Dallas, Texas police officers in 2016. Peculiar that the corporate media has largely ignored the mass casualty event while devoting hours of coverage to the controversial Taylor shooting, which remains under official investigation.
