Have we taken the SJW mindset too far? Even in college basketball’s March Madness, there are multiple teams with “Equality” sewn onto the backs of the players’ jerseys. A basketball team has 5 players on the court per the rules of the game. How long till someone is offended that there are 3 of one race, and only 2 of the other… then boycotts the game until there are an equal number? Then rules change to field teams of 6 on the court, and there must be 3 white players and 3 black players.
In the name of equality!
Where that leaves Asians or Native Americans is anyone’s guess. It’s a bit absurd to take all this social justice as far as some have taken it. With that said, I’m in full support of equal treatment of people of any and all races, genders, etc. It’s not like I disagree with the messages, but all of it just comes across as acts of guilt rather than a celebration.
Shall we not celebrate the diversity in our country, in the world? As legendary 90s band DCTalk once sang, “There is joy in diversity!” I don’t sense joy when uniforms have social messages on them like “Equality” or “Black Lives Matter” or “Freedom”. It is more divisive than it is unifying.
What do y’all think of this type of thing happening in sports like the NFL, NBA, and college basketball? Comment below and let’s chat!
