When the National Basketball Association (NBA) makes its return, they will paint “Black Lives Matter” on the courts during all remaining games of the season, ESPN has learned.
The NBA plans to make its return in late July at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fl. after suspending their season due to COVID-19 concerns. The WNBA is also considering painting the slogan on their court during their upcoming season (not that anyone really cares about that).
“Players have insisted that the fight for racial equality and social justice be a central part of the NBA’s return to play and the WNBA’s new season,” ESPN reports.
This comes following news that NBA players will likely be allowed to put left-wing messages on their jerseys when play resumes. Oklahoma City Thunder guard Chris Paul, who works as president of the National Basketball Players Association, made the announcement over the weekend.
“We’re just trying to continue to shed light on the different social justice issues that guys around our league continue to talk about day in and day out,” Paul told ESPN’s The Undefeated. “People are saying that social justice will be off of everybody’s mind in Orlando. With these jerseys, it doesn’t go away.”
“The guys I talked to were definitely excited,” Paul added. “The reason I’m passionate and excited about it is that it gives a voice to the voiceless. It also gives guys a chance to shine a light on something they are passionate about. Otherwise, they may not have been given a chance to express themselves.”
The NBA has gone ultra-woke following the death of serial felon George Floyd. Big League Politics reported on how a popular league announcer lost his job because he tweeted “all lives matter” earlier this month:
A National Basketball Association (NBA) announcer was suspended from his position after writing “All Lives Matter” in a post on his personal Twitter account.
Grant Napear, who has worked an announcer for the Sacramento Kings team since 1988, was put on administrative leave by his radio network because he wrote: “All Lives Matter… Every Single One!” in a Twitter post. He has already been forced to grovel and apologize in an attempt to satiate the social justice brigade and keep his job.
“I’m not as educated on BLM as I thought I was,” Napear said in his apology, according to The Sacramento Bee. “I had no idea that when I said ‘All Lives Matter’ that it was counter to what BLM is trying to get across.”
Extremely low IQ former NBA players piled on to shame Napear for sharing his egalitarian point of view.
“Lol as expected,” said Demarcus Cousins, a former center for the Kings.
“Demarcus we know and have known who grant is,” tweeted Chris Webber, who played for the Kings for many years. “The team knows as well. I’ve told them many times. They’ve seen it. They know who he is.”
The racial supremacist agenda of Black Lives Matter has demonized anyone who says “All Lives Matter” as a racist regardless of evidence, making it clear that their point is certain lives matter more than others.
The NBA risks alienating its fans by openly supporting an anti-American terror movement in BLM as it wages war against the Bill of Rights and Constitution nationwide.
Ohio High School Football Players Reinstated After Suspension For Entering Field With Thin Blue Line, American Flags
Why were they even suspended?
Two Little Miami, Ohio high school football players who were suspended from their team for entering a game while carrying the Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line(commemorating firefighters) flags have been freed from suspension, after community members expressed outrage at the punishment of the two young men.
Jarad Bentley and Brady Williams had been given an indefinite suspension from the Little Miami High School football team for carrying the two flags onto the field before a game, apparently violating a rule against political symbols. The two seniors reject the notion that they were making a political statement, and one of the boys had spoken of his intention to honor first responders, such as his own father, on the anniversary of 9/11.
Two Little Miami football players pay the price for civil disobedience. They were told not to carry onto the field thin blue line and thin red line flags at their 9/11 game. They did anyway. The school has now suspended them from the team indefinitely. #ThinBlueLine #ThinRedLine pic.twitter.com/19y9GAvaxr

After concerned parents and community members organized a protest event to stand with Williams and Bentley, the Little Miami School Board reversed its decision, freeing the senior players from suspension.
The President of the school board seemed keen to establish that the institution “supports police,” perhaps feeling the pressure from angry parents displeased to see the patriotic young men kicked from the football team for an innocuous display of patriotism.

They still might face some consequences, and reportedly team officials had commanded the players not to enter the field with the flags. Their punishment will be settled within the athletic department’s code of conduct.
College and high school sports teams put on elaborate displays in support of the left-wing Black Lives Matter movement all the time. Pro-police and firefighter flags are not a political statement by a long shot. This suspension never should’ve been issued in the first place.
