  • Your argument comes down to “People of color don’t need scholarships because other people of color have been successful on their own ... but if you don’t offer scholarships to white people, that’s racist.” Good talk, bud. I think it’s clear what you’re about.

  • By this logic, why any scholarships at all? These poor white kids don’t need scholarships! Pull themselves up by their bootstraps! Lots of successful white people out there have done it! They just need to raise themselves up. Or are you saying they’re not capable?!
    @tribjazz @Parksutt @AntiRacistJazz @byuliberty So you are saying “whites” don’t need help. Man that is a **** blanket statement. And it makes POC sound like they can’t handle themselves or raise themselves up. Like eternal victims. I don’t believe that! As I said earlier, way too many successful POC! That chose to make it!

  • Jazz injury report for Monday vs. Lakers: Rudy Gobert and Mike Conley - PROBABLE Ersan Ilyasova and Derrick - QUESTIONABLE Donovan Mitchell and Udoka Azubuike - OUT

  • Ah yes, I forgot. There’s absolutely zero way for actions of the past to have impact on the present. How silly of me.
    @tribjazz Lol like any of the people getting these scholarships have experienced any of these things either ... Except *maybe* police hassling. People of today are responsible for the actions of today not yesterday.

  • Please everyone, read this thread. With all due respect to William, this is pretty much as perfect an unintentional encapsulation of white privilege as I’ve ever read.
    @tribjazz @pedrodon 1st of all, Ryan Smith can do with his money what he wants. 2nd, I still find it as wrong. MLK stated, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Thus

  • NBA's L2MR reveals two incorrect calls in regulation that hurt the Jazz against the Lakers: Ersan Ilyasova's blocking foul vs. KCP with 1:53 left that led to FTs should have been a charging foul; Schroder should have been whistled for an offensive foul vs. Ilyasova w/1:16 left.

  • Lotta people saying, “If the situation were reversed & only white people got scholarships, you’d say it was racist.” Reversed? Hmmmm ... Are white people willing to go thru slavery, Jim Crow, redlining, mass incarceration, police hassling for scholarships? https://t.co/1Hbiz9Y7x4

  • Joe Ingles, on the Jazz's 4Q comeback: "It's why we do what we do. We wanna compete, we wanna win. I compete with Renae at home. I compete with my children over things."

  • Joe Ingles: "We just tried to keep it a little more basic. We're missing 4 pretty important guys, so just keep it basic, let it flow, let guys play. … We were one stop away from winning the game. We’ll take a lot out of it. But regardless of who’s out there, it sucks losing."
