I didnt realize that i was being insensitive when i made a comment calling VDN Vinny Dumb Negro. I didnt mean to offend anyone with that comment and from now on refrain from using such language. I am sorry if I offended any of you

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year

Thanks for the apology, but I don't really think it was needed. Anyone with half a brain could see that you just changed out Del with Dumb and there was nothing racist about it.

Keep on doing what you're doing Jarca, you bring a lot to the board.

yes I also saw no need for the apology, you weren't being racist, it was just some people looking to make drama, that's all.

Just the apology whether needed or not indicates to me your sensibilities and thoughtfulness as a sincere human being....which some of people might have a hard time understanding...

Merry Xmas and very Happy New Year to ya..

I agree. He isn't black at all so I didn't take offense. Guy has the word BLACK in his name ( translated of course ).

At first I didn't read much into the comment but the more I drew my attention to it it became more clear to me how it can be a very offensive remark especially to our African American members. So thanks for apologizing Jarca.

This is my last post on the subject. No anger, no drame but as a point for thought --- or not.

Vinnie the Black is cool but how many of you would walk up to Kenyon Martin or any other black player NBA and call him a Dumb Negro?

Merry Xmas and remember DESIGNATED DRIVERS

The majority of players in the NBA are black and get **** on by other players, coaches, media etc. Anyone remember Yinka Dare? He was drafted by the Nets in the mid/late 90's. He was ridiculed all the time by people and coaches saying stuff like "Yinka you stinka!"

That is no joke either. Calling someone a dumb negro is one, but KG called Charlie Villenueva, or said he looked like a cancer patient. As much as I love KG I don't believe any of the crap he said to cover up the incident. Why would a player like Villenueva, who is massively under the radar and isn't a big rumor spreader or trash talker make something like that up?

I'm sure there are plenty of fans that have called African American players the really bad N word amongst other things within HI 5 distance as they are leaving the floor, or on the court ( those fans that sit on the sidelines ).

i don't think anybody would, but there would be no reason to call him "dumb negro" because I don't think any of us here are racist. he merely replaced the word "del" in vinny del negro and put in the word "dumb", and it just so happened to say "dumb negro" in it. i don't really think he did anything wrong cause he basically just replaced the word del with dumb because vinny was doing a bunch of dumb substitutions in that game which lead to our demise...... but I guess it just depends on how you look at it.

Jarca, that was very nice of you to apologize regardless of your intentions. I believe you. I can see how someone might take offense to that so kudos for making yourself clear.

Side note:

I just moved every post from the game thread related to that comment so we didn't have to keep this an ongoing issue.

By the way, Merry Christmas to all!!!

Not offended by your "Vinny Dumb Negro" comment. But I am very offended that you did not wish us a happy Festivus. Your lack of mention of this important holiday displays a blatant lack of sensitivity to an important and cherished holiday celebrated by millions lol

I'd celebrate any holiday if I get presents.

Oh I forgot, I do celebrate Kwanza. Contact David and he'll tell you where to send the gifts. Clipper Spirit's underwear is on the top of my list

Will you give Jarca and I presents if we promise to stop ranting? We'll take the key to the locker room.

If we don't get gifts we'll invent something else. Any ideas Jarca?
