"Timberwolves: Pale in comparison to the rest of the NBA"
Article by: JERRY ZGODA and DENNIS BRACKIN , Star Tribune staff writers
When Wolves offseason moves built a squad that's glaringly white, skeptics chimed in about motives.
Dante Cunningham noticed when he reported for work in Minnesota this fall that his new Timberwolves team is unlike any for which he has ever played.
"Day One, we were all in the elevator and I kind of looked up," he said about a crowded ride with many of his new teammates, "and I was just like, 'Where is everybody?' "
Everybody, in this case, being black teammates. Come opening night on Friday, Cunningham will be one of five black players on a 15-man Wolves team that has reversed the National Basketball Association's historical racial percentages with a roster that is the league's whitest since the Boston Celtics teams of the 1980s.
Raised in Washington, D.C., and educated at Villanova, Cunningham played his first four professional seasons for three different teams in a league where American-born black players constituted 78 percent of roster spots last season and have been at least 75 percent since 1991-92.

FOR THE LOVE OF MARTIN LUTHER KING, WOULD YOU PLEASE WAKE UP?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!? The NBA floor as a "battleground state" for racism AGAINST BLACKS?!?!? ARRRRRE YOOOOOUUUUU KIDDIIIIIING MEEEEEEE! Do you really think that? Really!!! That is just embarrassing to me as a black man! SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!!!! BASKETBALL!!! I long for a day when a man will not be signed for the color of his skin but for the content of his GAME! Reverend King looked forward to a day when ALL races would be looked upon this way, not just his own. When you look at the Timberwolves you actually see huge diversity! Players from all over the world. All fighting for a spot in the blackest league in sports if I am not mistaken. Minnesota is not a big money market. And since the lost KG they have been fighting up hill to get back to relevance on a budget. My guess is you can do that more quickly by getting the most bang for your buck. So at worst the T-Wolves have engaged in outsourcing not racism... In the US blacks are 12.6% of the population. We are 77% of the NBA, 65% of the NFL and 8.5% of MLB (and 2.75% of NHL for reasons David Letterman explained years ago). Maybe instead of crying about why there are so many white players on the Minnesota Timberwolves we should be asking why do we kill so many black babies every year?
Abortion and Race
For decades, abortion has disproportionately targeted minority babies.
Abortion, by the numbers, is a racist institution. That's not to say that all or even most of those who support abortion are racists. Nor does it imply that there are noracists among those who oppose abortion. This statement has nothing to do with agendas or intent. It has everything to do with the simple, undeniable reality that in the United States, abortion kills minority children at more than 3 times the rate of non-Hispanic, white children. The rate is even worse for black children. The ReverendClenard H. Childress calls this phenomenon "black genocide", and has built a national ministry around the exposure of what he calls "the greatest deception [to] plague the black church since Lucifer himself". Alveda C. King, daughter of slain civil-rights leaderA.D. King and niece of Martin Luther King, Jr., quotes her uncle often when outlining her opposition of abortion. She writes:
[Martin Luther King, Jr.] once said, “The Negro cannot win as long as he is willing to sacrifice the lives of his children for comfort and safety.” How can the “Dream” survive if we murder the children? Every aborted baby is like a slave in the womb of his or her mother. The mother decides his or her fate.
1.Lest you feel these claims are an exaggeration, consider the numbers. According to the most recent census data available for race (2000), black women make up 12.3% of the female population in America 2, but accounted for36.4% of all U.S. abortions in 20063 – that according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The Guttmacher Institute (AGI) puts the percentage of black abortions at 30% of the U.S. total4. Their most recent numbers are from 2008. Similarly, AGI tells us that Hispanic women5 accounted for 25% of all U.S. abortions in 20086, though they made up just 12.5% of the female population in 20007. The CDC lists the percentage of Hispanic abortions in 2006 at 20.1%8. Compare those numbers to non-Hispanic, white women, who make up 69% of America's female population9, but account for only 36% of all U.S. abortions10 (36.1% according to the CDC11).

Warning the next section was taken from a Fox News article: So if you have an issue with the fact that the info is from foxnews just look up the stats or skip to the next section.
"Abortion Rate Among Black Women Far Exceeds Rate for Other Groups"
The Centers for Disease Control recorded detailed information on the race of those having abortions from 1970 to 1981. It shows Roe’s impact on abortions by blacks in the years immediately before and after the decision. The Supreme Court’s decision had the biggest impact on blacks, raising their share of abortions from 21 to 30 percent, while their share of live births only increased from 12 to 15 percent.

"Several years ago, when 17,000 aborted babies were found in a dumpster outside a pathology laboratory in Los, Angeles, California, some 12-15,000 were observed to be black."

Think of it like this. Like it says in the Usual Suspects "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist." The greatest trick SOMEBODY ever pulled was to convince the Black community that abortion is a good option for the Black community. Why BOTHER putting blacks "back into chains" when you can just have them ERADICATE THEMSELVES and have us thank you for that right. Because these days "The most dangerous place to be an African-American is in the womb." Pastor Clenard Childress Jr.
