NBA Commissioner Adam Silver's press conference two days ago in Japan tells you everything you need to know about the West's racist attitudes towards the rest of Planet Earth's peoples - and as a result has dug a very, very deep Chinese grave for his organization (https://edition.cnn.com/2019/10/08/media/nba-adam-silver/index.html). He said he will not apologize for Houston Rocket GM Daryl Morey's tweet, pictured above (which has since been deleted from his account), nor has Morey, who just can't seem to understand the "unexpected" reaction in China.

As People's Daily commented in the above tweet,

Mr Morey: if rioters set fire on (the) Houston subway, will you stand with them?

NBA is big business in China. Every year, it makes about $120,000,000 off the Chinese market. It is already 10% of its global revenue and is projected to be 20% by 2030. Tencent's contract for digital broadcasting rights alone is $1.5 billion. CCTV, the country's biggest television station, has stopped broadcasting all NBA games. Exhibition games here are being canceled. Merchandise is being pulled from Taobao, China's Amazon. Media stars like actor Wu Jinyan and singer Fan Chengcheng have also announced they are boycotting the NBA.

All official Chinese sponsors have dropped the NBA, including,

Anta Sportswear

Changhong Appliances

China Mobile subsidiary Migu

Ctrip Travel

Dicos Restaurants

Dongfeng Nissan

eHi Car Services

Luckin Coffee

Astonishing self induced slash by a struttingly stupid racist. A few more cuts should land him on the first level of hell.

Thanks, Shad.


Western racism is normalized and internalized. We usually don't see it in our daily lives, unless we know the cues.


Sino-best, Jeff

True...this is a long standing insufferable psyop the ruling elites have going for themselves against us. An attendant feature of their psyop is the implicit promise to the undiscerning racists in the 99% that is correct to see themselves as part of the same class as the elites regarding race hatred, gravely misunderstanding that the elites look at everyone but themselves as insects and fodder.

Though I do not follow any organized sport, I will say this is just another step in China's de-coupling of its US interests.

During my 10 years in China I found many racist Chinese, who think they are superior to the rest of the world. Told That: "China has no racist problem since there are no black people there." Why are so many Chinese women applying lead cream to lighten their skin? Why are so any Chinese trying to get out of China?

While teaching at West China School of Medicine, and other medical schools I taught at I was told: "the medical students were smart," yet most failed their final exam not knowing a stethoscope was a listening device, a sphygmomanometer was a blood pressure gauge and many other simple medical questions. The student's are book-rote smart, but can't think independently.

I was told many times about the money the USA owes China, but when I asked about the war supplies of WWII plus interest, they told me to ask Taiwan for this. My response was: "You tell me Taiwan is a part of China," so which is it? That would shut up those little smug emperors/empresses real quick.

As the USA slowly disintegrates, China will become old before it becomes rich; if humanity has this long.

All peoples are racist. But, the Chinese do not use it to conquer, exterminate and destroy the planet. That's a Western specialty.

The Chinese government is enslaving many developing countries with "loans" their economy can't support. The Chinese then move in to "manage" the ports and other infrastructure built by Chinese workers, not local labor. All resources are then shipped back to the Chinese mainland.


I'd say its western "capitalism" with Chinese characters exploiting the 21st century way.

That's the Big Lie Propaganda Machine (BLPM). This is the reality:

It's very easy to swallow the Blue Pill in the Matrix.
