everyone is allowed to play but i never saw a black person play it.

I love dutch girls.

I remember asking one if she knew what basketball was and she told me yes. I asked her how many people played in each team and she said, 10?
Very nice girl though.

And who in their right mind put any money into this project. How on earth can one assume that any money spent can be regained? I assume some money has gone into it already. Horrific idea from a business standpoint alone.

Whites-only basketball....
It would be like watching the Toronto Raptors

Does the one above say "watch out, dude's got something behind his back"?

But seriously, in a way it is a good thing that there is something like this being said. This way, people will stop saying it does not still exist, and thereby being a part of the problem.

this pic made me crack up.
its crazy that people still believe that black and white human beings are different. i just cannot understand it. and the leauge would suck. there would be 5 people that watch the game all screaming nazi propaganda. the skinheads would confuse the ball with each others heads and try to pick it up.. the highest scores would go in the 30s..
thats one lame ass leauge right there.

Do people get paid to play that absurd sport? Looks like it would become boring after the first trip down the floor.

The fundamental vs. streetball paradigm holds absolutely no water...

Who's the most flashy, street ball-esque player you can think of?..IMO, it's Jason Williams, a caucasian male.

And who's the best fundamental player you can think of?..IMO, it's Tim Duncan, a half black male, who's nicknamed THE BIG FUNDAMENTAL!!!

Cleary racially motivated, a slight towards something divergent. One man carrying a gun does not represent an entire race. Heck, if that was that case, every caucasian male -including myself- should not have the right to live due to all the nasty things caucasian figures inflicted on divergent races over history. Based on his reasoning, you could make a counter-argument stating, nobody wants to watch a bunch of white men play because of the actions of Hilter.

That being said, I'm so intrigued now, I kind of want to see a game.

Dude don't picture us as stupid, and especially not as racist for that matter. :P

Korfbal is a sport for old school Christians from villages far from the modern world. Reason why you don't see black people playing it is probably about the same why you don't see black people competing in alpine skiing. they're just not part of the culture that produces those athletes, don't play the game. Kind of like speedskating before Shani Davis showed up.

Don't they know that we have 3 white guys as starters on our Raptors team. Bargs, Caldy and Turk are all white. We are the majority lol.


In all honesty this thread is rediculous.
