“It’s America. LaVar gets to be racist and stupid. Can’t have the free without the dumb.”

In the shallow minds of left-stream reporters, accusations of racism are relative to skin color and political identity. Whites and Republicans are assumed to be inherently racist in their DNA. It’s a different story when a member of a minority group utters racist comments.

This was apparent when LaVar Ball, the outspoken father of UCLA basketball star Lonzo Ball, uttered remarks to the Orange County Register that can only be taken as blatantly racist. Of UCLA’s recent loss to Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament, he said:

“Realistically you can’t win no championship with three white guys because the foot speed is too slow.”

Sticking to their predictable script, Big Media lefties reported Ball’s outrageous remarks with nary a mention of racism. If a white person had made the same charges against African-American athletes, it would have been universally declared the worst sort of racism. But it’s politically correct to ignore racism when it comes from minorities.

ESPN reported the Ball story as matter-of-fact, no-harm, no-foul. Sports Illustrated calmly reported the story without any reference to racism…

ESPN has been hemorrhaging numbers with their leftist take on just about everything. Their viewership is in the toilet.

Fox Sports 1’s Jason Whitlock’s Twitter remark has to be the best:

“It’s America. LaVar gets to be racist and stupid. Can’t have the free without the dumb.”
