NBA Commissioner Calls for 50% of New Coaches and Referees to be Women

Adam Silver wants to see 50% of new NBA coaches and referees be women.

Published

The commissioner of the National Basketball Association, Adam Silver, called for an affirmative action quota to be imposed on the league’s coaches and referees in an event on Thursday.

Silver said that “going forward, it should be roughly 50-50 of new officials entering in the league. Same for coaches, by the way. We have a program, too. There’s no reason why women shouldn’t be coaching men’s basketball.” 

Silver didn’t seem to endorse a specific measure to enforce his preferred diversity quota during his remarks. It’s possible the commissioner is simply seeking to appear virtuous to progressives obsessed with establishing hiring quotas for women and minorities, even in male professional sports. Were his hiring quota ever to be implemented, it would likely end in disaster and incur a massive backlash from fans and players.

Some women already officiate in professional basketball and the NBA. However, it comes naturally most that men will be more inclined to pursue a career involving a men’s professional sport, including officiating and coaching. Were Silver’s unlikely proposition ever to be implemented, it’s likely that the relatively small pool of female basketball referees would be stretched thin to even provide qualified referees, while the process of becoming an NBA referred would become doubly difficult for men.

Curiously, Silver’s call for equality in officiating and coaching ranks wasn’t applied to the face of the league itself: the players. It’s also worth noting that his call for representation of preferred groups didn’t apply to his own comfortable position as NBA commissioner. Fans and commentators have called for the NBA, a league with a majority of black players, to hire a black commissioner– a milestone Silver continues to thwart by remaining in office.

As of Friday morning Silver is yet to apologize to women’s groups for his refusal to call for their inclusion on NBA rosters as players. It seems the nominally ‘progressive’ commissioner’s demands for mandated inclusion end when it could possibly hit his bottom line.

RETALIATION: Planet Fitness Bans Boosie BadAzz for Calling Out Dwayne Wade and His Trans Son

More commercial terrorism from the LGBT movement.

Published

on

Opposing the LGBT agenda to corrupt the souls of children can have serious consequences, as rap legend Boosie BadAzz has learned.

Boosie issued a blistering viral rant on his Instagram profile addressed to former NBA star Dwayne Wade while working out at Planet Fitness earlier this week. He castigated Wade for humoring his 12-year-old son’s delusions that he is a girl.

In response to his rant, Planet Fitness would not allow him to work out in their facilities despite Boosie being an active member of the establishment.

“Do not go to Planet Fitness, they racist, they haters. They just put me out Planet Fitness for what I said about Dwyane Wade son,” Boosie said in an Instagram post on Friday.

Boosie blames a homosexual manager for making the decision to ban him from the facility because he had the audacity to say that a little boy’s genitals should not be cut off.

“Manager who was gay refused to let me n Planet Fitness because of my past actions on social media about gender etc.,” the rapper said.

Big League Politics reported on Boosie being the voice of reason and putting Wade on blast for his abusive parenting style:

Boosie called out Wade for promoting his transgender kid, who the NBA legend claims is a girl. Wade has gone on publicity junkets recently claiming that he accepts that his birth son is now a girl and urges other parents to harbor their child’s delusions even if it may put them in extreme danger.

“I gotta say something about this s**t, brah. Dwayne Wade, you gone too f**kin far, dog,” he said to start his spirited rant.

“That is a male, a 12-year-old, at 12 they don’t even know… they don’t even know what they next meal gonna be!” Boosie exclaimed.

Boosie was just getting warmed up from there as he continued to let loose on the former NBA Finals MVP who has been seduced and indoctrinated by the LGBT agenda.

He added: “He might meet a woman, anything, at 16, and fall in love with her, but his d*ck be gone, how he gonna.. like, bruh, you going too far, dog. Don’t cut his d*ck off, bruh. Like, bruh. For real. If he gonna be gay, let him be gay, but don’t cut his d*ck off, bruh.”

“Don’t cut his f**kin d*ck off, Dwayne Wade, bruh. You f**kin trippin, dog. You trippin, dog,” Boosie said to capstone his traditionalist appeal to Wade.

Planet Fitness has a long history of standing with the transgender community, even to the point of allowing men to shower in the female locker room. A Michigan woman filed a lawsuit in 2015 after her Planet Fitness membership was terminated because she complained about a man identifying as trans being allowed in the female locker room.

LGBT activists are using commercial terrorism to discourage dissent from their child-targeting predatory agenda, and Boosie is just the latest victim of this totalitarian social movement.
