    It has to do with the solution to the incident.

    If you don't want more incidents let's focus the aggression on the common enemy and not the other people/races/groups being held down.

    That will only encourage more resentment and conflict between groups being ignored and under-represented. It strengthens the ability of groups in power to remain in power.

    Refocus all division into unity to tackle the problem against those in charge.

    Change is made by reaching up and not dividing groups who don't hold appropriate shares of control.

    Honestly, it seems he is saying that the power structure = white people. And that white people would love for the focus to be on incidents of racism between black people and Asians. That white people are the common enemy of both. And white racists = cancer/tumors. Blacks racists or any other group = poison ivy. And we shouldn't talk about racism or hate crimes, unless it is committed by whites.

    And then he posts that blacks and Asians should focus that racist aggression on the common enemy, white people

    It’s Oakland

    there’s no power structure it’s basketball and bad parenting

    You know Yoda is like a little impudent Japanese Samurai. They tried to get Pat Morita " Mr Miyagi" to play Yoda at first. Rest his soul. There's good people on all sides so the "common enemy" is a trope. Political powers be damned.

    Racism amongst kids are caused by parenting and lack of integration

    Because smart people look at all the factors,
    The Bay is a heavily segregated area with the largest wealth inequality

    the odds of those kids not having any friends or associates of other races are high

    also notice how the parents of the aggressive kids never did anything

    People here want to blame it on video games and cartoon characters

    So if the problem is that the League as an entity wants Lebron's team in the finals and will alter rules and enforce calls to give Lebron's team the advantage, than the problem isn't about Oakland and Houston. It's about making sure the NBA does not have the power to exert that kind of control.

    Look back to the Black Sox scandal in baseball. Sure players that took money to throw games were wrong,but the bigger issue was the league and owners were able to take advantage of the players to the point they were willing or even found it necessary to accept the payoffs.

    Tackle the bigger issues and the symptoms and by-products will be greatly reduced.

    Lebron, to an extent, is co-commissioner of the NBA. It's not official but a behind the background sort of thing.

    This is AAU not the NBA

    besides the warriors moved to San Francisco

    your city must suck if two teams leave and maybe the As

    You can research for yourself who holds the power. Who has the most seats in governments, who runs the boards of the biggest corporations, who benefits from the policies those groups institute.

    You can look at who suffers from those policies, expectations, and who is protected by them.

    The more the people who hold power can keep attention diverted away from the fact that their power structure is an unfair advantage, the more they benefit.

    Sure some folks will beleive that if they only buy into that structure they too will be given a share of the profits and the power. But that hasn't happened in general. Only for a few poster cases that can be used to keep the power in control of those that still hold it.

    I just like how the green flashing dot sits perfectly on the end of his lightsaber when I'm logged into clutchfans or else I probably would have changed my avatar by now, maybe to La Piña Yuli Gurriel or, perhaps, World B. Free. Everybody loves B. Free.

    Dude
    This is AAU basketball.

    Control is a great album by Janet Jackson.

    the lack of respect of the instigating kids are caused by bad parenting . Notice the parents of the kid who threw the punch didn’t do anything or apologize.

    nobody is saving the world except for a few people bro like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos

    You are ignoring what I said and what can help prevent more of the problems from arising.

    I said that behavior shouldn't be tolerated. Those who act that way should be held accountable.

    But it is counter productive and not suited to preventing further offenses to focus on on incidents like this that further divide two groups kept out of the power share rather than focus on those that hold the power share and benefit from the division.

    Your allegiance to those that hold and abuse power has been noted.

    So the AAU is a basketball league where parents pay to get their kids on these teams

    I don’t what your power sharing solution has to do with anything except if this was a time share in the woods

    If Parent A doesn’t tell Kid A that racism is wrong
    Than they are Creeps
    They don’t belong here
    They don’t belong here

    Like I said you aren't understanding what I'm saying are talking about things I haven't proposed or argued for at all.

    Poison Ivy should be treated. It's annoying and bad. But it isn't as big of a deal as cancer. Once we beat cancer we can focus more resources to treating posin ivy.
