This way of thinking is borderline derangement…
The NBA might nix the term “owner” from its vocabulary so as to avoid the suggestion of racial insensitivity, according to a new report.
The report from TMZ Sports states that two franchises have already made the switch, referring to their majority shareholders by other names. Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Balmer is referred to as the team’s “CEO,” and the Philadelphia 76ers now refer to their main shareholders as “limited partners.”
The TMZ report pointed to an episode of LeBron James‘ HBO show “The Shop,” in which Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green appeared to take offense to the term “owner,” saying it fosters a “slave-to-master” relationship.
The NBA sent a statement to TMZ saying that the league already refers to its owners as “governors.”
“We refer to the owners of our teams as Governors; each team is represented on our Board of Governors,” the league told TMZ.
The NBA has always been at the forefront of corporate political correctness, and this is no different. Will banning the term “owner” be the straw that breaks the camel’s back and ends racism once and for all?

If you bring up race, color, hair style, whatever other than content of character, you are racist.
PANHUMANITY–color conscious policies will not work–
except more “white rescue”–(If Negros stopped the racism complaints
and memories, they would have to thank Caucasians for almost everything, and
that is just psychologically unacceptible until they read Keith Richburg’s Out of
America, a Black Man Confronts Africa. And that would help the KKK losers
realize that it is time for them to quit their hateful racism too, and all can join in
full Hippocratic Humanbeingness.)

–“PAN” is redundant, but needed because color, ethnicity, race, religion, groupthink tend to make all forget that “humanity” is all of us! As my Italianate father would say banging the table: “We are all the same! We are all the same! Even when we proclaim our differences!” (“Panhumanity” is really “America” generalized for the world.) You cannot fight racism with your own racism. You cannot fight color with color. “Color” and most other dimensions are as important as height, weight, race, sex, subculture unless violent, disabilities etc.. Color inspires hate and arrogant self-righteousness. Old time “whites” used it for power–Isn’t that what today’s “blacks” are trying to do? Those who use color are fooling themselves at best and create more evil at worst by victimism which creates development-preventing anger, hoax creating beggars, demanding loud failures, and slick prejudice against whites. You cannot fight “differences” with more “differences.” Only the Transcendentals and Ultimate Humanbeingness works. Color is a “fuse” only meaning the user can count. Non-racists work to bring all together; not to paralyze; not to exploit; not to intimidate; and not to deny past unifying help but to remind of them so their helping will be imitated (Color excuses failure and color makes enemies instead of friends who help). Color paralyzes into demanding others do self-development for them, which is what others cannot do. Color makes for deadbeats happy shouting their victimism caused by having slave ancestors because they think it excuses their failure and justifies retaliatory racism, as if two wrongs make a right.
In summary, “white” is power-mad craziness and “black” is victim-mad craziness.
THE ONLY VALID USE OF COLOR IS TO REMEMBER THAT MORE WHITES HAVE HELPED BLACKS AND OTHERS THAN HURT THEM SINCE THE FOUNDING OF AMERICA–“WHITE RESCUE”, not “white privilege.” If whites are blamed for black failures, whites must get credit for black successes. In fact, “privilege while white” is the same as “driving while black.” Stop basing anything on race or color. Help with “content of character”, without mentioning color, race, ethnicity, or subculture, leads to the oneness of all humans. COLORLESS IS THE ONLY WAY TO STOP RACISM. To deal with “racism” as “racism” is to create racism. REMEMBER AND RELIVE WORKING TOGETHER FOR EACH OTHER, rather than the opposite. COLOR IS SELFISH SCHEMING…like slavery, the KKK, BlackLivesMatter, Southern Poverty Law Center, et cetera…Tell about the good so it will be imitated…and not the “bad.” The
“GOOD”–WHITE RESCUE–a million and a half whites died in the Civil War
defeating slavery; those whites were supported by the rest of the 20 million Northerners then alive; and a majority of the 194 million American Caucasians today have enabled successes of the majority of the 45 million Negros alive in America today–successes improbable if not impossible in any other country–successes impossible without “white rescue.” Almost everything worthwhile in the world is due to some degree to white rescue. What BlackLivesMatter does not want is for whites to treat blacks the way blacks mostly treat blacks (over 6000 blacks murder 6000 blacks every year). And you would think that a group should try to work nicely together with those who outnumber them 5 to 1 in population (unless, of course, they know that most who outnumber them really want to help instead of hurt, so Negros can “abuse them for help” instead of “ask and thank them for help”). “Black” is no different than “white” used to be—a power slogan, campaign,
cult for domination.
Doc Sam identified the “solution to race” as a problem while visiting a prison. He witnessed a bright no-nonsense black guy (not one of the few loud black groupies who always used the “N-word”) leap from his upper bunk to greet his new white guy mate on the lower bunk with, “Hi, I’m Chris, and I’m not black.” Shaking hands now, the white guy said, “I’m Tony, and I’m not white.” They got along fine—I am still stunned at this marvelous glimpse of the “oneness”, by denial and tolerance, these two muscle bound tatooed under-educated criminal toughs showed each other. It was amazing! Watching them, and witnessing it another time between another black/white pair, Doc Sam believes this “denial of color” should be taught and adopted so as to characterize all humanity to help overcome racism. Witnessing this made Doc Sam realize that “color does not count, but content of character does” deserving unbridled respect and promotion for the sake of all humanity. These criminals found the “cure” for racism which is the absolute refusal to use “color” for any judgements but to relate by absolute “humanbeingness.” The answer is VIRTUE overcoming concentrated disadvantage. (I first wrote for “colorlessness” in 1998, “Races and Solution”, Social Justice Review, but I did not understand how to do it until I witnessed the preceeding event in prison.)
(People who think with COLOR cannot be believed and should not. Most often, they are making excuses or trying to dominate. There is a perverse “better-than-thou”, self-righteous feel-good when color is used as an excuse for failures; and the same perverse as a “gotcha” feel-good occurs when color is questioned as a reason for success. “Black” has come to mean (1) anger at slavery never experienced; (2) entitlements for personal failures; (3) hostility to those personally succeeding; (4) willful non-development; and (5) refusal to acknowledge and thank those who have helped. Alternating and opposite, are the malicious uses of color to assault, dominate, manipulate and exploit, just as old slavers used “white” and today as abortionists use “size.” Those who condemn color dominance should not use it themselves. “Content of character”– “conscious of consciousness”–VIRTUE–present or absent? Virtue is the Common Good. Color has not, and will not work. It never did and never will for the truth, oneness, good and beauty of mankind. Love does not come from color. Color is racism.)
THOUGHTS ON COLOR–Do not label by color but by the content of character (C2 ) which is same as “personhood” also meaning “conscious of consciousness” (C2). BlackLivesMatter blames all problems on racism–and their answer is more racism but in the opposite direction–whitephobia (and hate) called “white privilege”–“White privilege/supremacy” is as hostile, hateful, degrading, bullying, offensive and racist for whites as “nigger” is for blacks. Created has been an epidemic of “You whites do not deserve dignity, decency, or friendliness because of memories of past oppressions for which all whites must assume guilt and all blacks must assume are still ongoing.” That thinking overlooks the Civil War where one and a half million whites died military deaths for the North as the rest of the twenty million whites of the North supported the destruction of slavery. Free people OWE whites their freedom with virtuous personal development by taking advantage of opportunities available instead of being paralyzed by poor-me victimhood or using race and color to exploit and manipulate others. Color did not humanize enslaving whites and made matters worse; and blacks dehumanize themselves also. To destroy “Negro” is the outrageous genocide of five hundred years of struggles, oppression, survival, and successes of human persons with African heredity–It is what Islam did.
“Color” as designating people has not worked. Color tells nothing about the individual’s content of character. Color divides; fragments; creates hostility; puts chips on one’s shoulders; offends automatically; depersonalizes to incivility; patronizes; makes one to be a professional victim, begging or demanding without productivity; paralyzes one to “poor me” ineptness; prevents helping oneself by being parasitic instead of taking advantage of opportunities available; inflates with loud self-deluded arrogant Narcissism; dehumanizes to violence; makes people crazy; and enables evil leaders to manipulate weak suggestible peers to un-virtuous acting out of emotions. And “color” makes one forget that being born in America is the luckiest thing that could happen to anyone–otherwise, one would be dead or destitute in some other miserable country or on the immigrant to the US waiting list–and millions still try to come here. Color means “unworthy content of character” and that one can do anything one feels like doing without consideration of virtue. Color makes one to be a Klu Klux Klan thinker of old: “I am better than those different and they must defer to me!” Any one who uses color should be rejected as a KKK (kolor,kolor,kolor)–which is the same as a CCC (color,color,color)—beige, black, brown, pink, red, white, yellow–empty wavelengths signifying nothing. We must identify as HUMANS: African, Asian, Caucasian, Hispanic, Negro, and by other words which bring the personhood of transcendent human history: Life, Sacrifice, Virtue, Love, Humanity, Peace, Freedom, and Natural Death without Fear by commitment to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Color does none of that and is just an empty wavelength containing “zero” content of character. Color does the opposite. Tell those dealing with “color” to stop and deal with humanity based words instead. Color makes matters worse. “Color” is superficial and skin-deep thoughtlessness. Color always fails. It will always fail because it is not fully human because it ignores the content of one’s character. Instead, people should be known by the content of their character as Dr. King stated–WHICH MEANS: at least, the virtues of prudence, justice, temperance and fortitude–which are the only ways to act and how to judge others. If you really want to help everybody, stop mentioning color. Color hardens the heart and dissolves the brain. The average melanin content of a person with “black” skin is less than one milligram–the tip of a lead pencil–and that one milligram should not control one’s 86 billion neurons or the world, unless one calls oneself a “pencil-tip”.
Most who use color overlook these facts. Some are just intimidated and do not have the courage or words to challenge promoters of color. However, those who exploit color today are typically obsessed by victimhood or color itself in the most subhuman way. They are typically mirror images of old time slave promoters–just read their books and articles, but reverse colors in all their writings throughout!. Color promoters of today are no better than color promoters of slavery–as if two wrongs make a right. One will see how sick they all are when obsessed or manic about color. Again: Color dehumanizes; it can solve no problems; it can only be misused.
All should know that more whites have helped blacks since the country was founded. One and a half million Caucasians died for the North to win the Civil War, and the 20 million other Caucasians of the North supported them. The “Fighting Irish” of Notre Dame are named after the thousands of Irish Brigade members who died winning the Battle of Gettysburg. Thus 4 million Negros were freed from slavery, and their descendants are 36 million Negros in America today, most of whom are doing well thank you. No one remembers or knows about the descendants, if any, of the 1 & 1/2 million white Northerners dead in the Civil War. Islam’s slaves have no descendants because all were murdered, castrated, worked to death, and prohibited procreation–Muslims never helped their blacks and there was no NAACP ever in an Islamic country. Meanwhile, for 12 centuries, “Muslim supremacy” was annihilation of 14 million slaves. How LeBron, Kaepernick, Muhammed Ali, BlackLivesMatter, and Negro History Smithsonian can give a pass to Islam is unbelievable (Bizarrely, they take pleasure in victimism as long as by “whites”–another proof that color should not be used as an identity. Ignored is that the first owner of legal slaves in America was a free Negro as once was the largest slave-owner in South Carolina.). In the Americas, most Negros are still being helped by more Caucasians than being mistreated by Caucasians. In fact, black-on-black crime and family self-failure are the biggest problems for Negros today. Negros overall have been helped by more whites than tried to hurt, as proven by most American Negro athletes. Unfortunately, they are being conned into victimism by blacks who do not know real history, by blacks who deny the white help they have received, by blacks who censor worse racism by Islam, and by blacks who are addicted to “color” rather than “content of character.” All need reminding that Caucasians, unless Muslims, will help more than hurt–always have and always will–All need reminding of the positives and eliminate pleasure of remembering the negatives, especially if you want more positives.
Treat all by positive support of the transcendentals: truth, oneness, good and beauty, identity, matter and being. Ignore color. We are all the same transcendentally and that is all that should count. As Justice Thurgood Marshall asked, “What is the quality of your intent?” Reverend Martin Luther King admonished that “content of character” is what makes personhood–There are better ways to help than Victimism which, as groupthink, just makes people into pencil-tips or angry and disagreeable enslavers, abortionists, racists, screaming threatening uncivil protestors, et cetera.
Color hardens the heart and melts the brain. Only virtue as understood and promoted by the Founders will work–impossible when factions impose color (or other groupthinks possibly offensive and fragmenting from humanity, make that “fragmenting from panhumanity). The only genuine significance of color is that more whites have helped blacks than hurt them since the founding of America.
“COLORIZATION” (the most common victimism) is more than color?: Why no objections to: White Sox? Black Sox? the Browns? Red Sox? Red Winos (or is it Red Wings)? Black Hawks? Redmen? Reds? Redskins (yep, already)? Lady Reds? Red Storm? Red Raiders? Renegades? Savages? Sioux? Crimson Storm? Blue Hawks? the Blues? White House? Black Knights? Red wine? Grayhounds? Brownies? Eskimos? Tribe? Chieftains? Mohigans? Braves? Bravettes? Halfbreeds? Hurons? Cherokees? Arrows? Mohawks? Warriors? Seminoles? Scouts? Fighting Irish? MidshipMEN? Cadets? Sooners? Pirates? Indiana? Indian Guides? Tomahawks? Thunderbirds (the car too)? Wolves? the Indian logos of thousands of schools across America? Geek Monkeys? Grease Monkey? Arabica Coffee? Indian Head Lager Beer? Sweet Stash? Pompadour? Deadwood? Old Brooklyn Bakery? Pastel Rainbows? Blue Devils? Mavericks? Cowboys? Dixie Cups? Ravens? Hipsters? or what I was called as a kid and no one cared: “GuineaWopDagoNiggerNegroNigro–no Catholics wanted”? INSTEAD, WHAT IS THE CONTENT OF CHARACTER? Diversity and integrated living are “content of character”–the pursuit of virtue.
The results are protests and riots from the BlackLivesMatter to Berkeley–ALL unConstitutional non-peaceful assemblies NEED Octavio Paz’ “San Ildefonso nocturne”:

All kids learn an “obsession” which they will live the rest of their lives–Make sure your obsession is filled with Truth, Oneness, Good and Beauty and supports Life, Sacrifice, Virtue, Love, Humanity, Peace, Freedom and Death without Fear. And help all kids do the same! Teach VIRTUES and TRANSCENDENTALS and help children know and love them instead of violence, sex, color, and other press/media sensational obsessions which make you crazy instead of virtuous. Teach St. Hildegard (on the Holy Spirit, the Big Bang, the pre-Big Bang, the Statimuum, and Eternal Life):
I am that supreme and fiery force that sends forth all the sparks of life. Death has no part of me, yet do I allot it, wherefore I am girt about with wisdom as with wings. I am that living and fiery essence of the divine substance that flows in the beauty of the fields. I shine in the water, I burn in the sun and the moon and the stars. Mine is that mysterious force of the invisible wind; I sustain the breath of all living. I breathe in the verdure, and in the flowers, and when the waters flow like living things, it is I. I found those columns that support the whole earth…I am the force that lies hid in the winds, from me they take their source, and as a man may move because he breathes, so doth a fire burn but by my blast. All these live because I am in them and am of their life. I am wisdom. Mine is the blast of the thundered word by which all things were made. I permeate all things that they may not die even if they seem to die. I am life…Eternal Life. (The Statimuum: the Immediacy of All Transcendence Ever–

This borders on lunacy! No one is impressed by the NBA making statements like this. If you own the team you are the owner Someone may be the CEO but he may still be a dick too!
All companies, sports teams included, are owned and run by people. And those companies all have employees. The players are employed by the team, the business. Many of them have played on these teams for several years and never complained before. And unlike the “slaves” they have compared themselves to, they can leave at any time. No one would stop them.
sports teams are “BUSINESSES” & “BUSINESSES” are “OWNED” by on ‘OWNER’ who pays ‘salaries’ of these ‘players’ who are ’employees’ of this ‘business’! these ‘over payed’ grownups running up & down a court need to ‘shut their mouths & do what they are paid to do which is play basketball. if they don’t like being in ‘organization’ that has ‘an owner’ then they need to get another JOB! BUT they have to realize unless they’re an OWNER, they’re gonna work for a business that has an “owner” so GROW UP & JOIN THE REAL WORLD!
I pray the sports world ends up in bankruptcy.
This “Politically Correctness” has become a lunacy! There are just too many words right not that ‘Offend’ some groups of people who get butt hurt over. Quite frankly, it is the single largest joke in American history!
Don’t like what you are called or, offended by every day words??? Too damned bad!
