I have thought about this over the past couple of days and have concluded, it is racist but should not be likened to the kind of racism that thwarts Black upward mobility.
Truthfully, I looked at myself and asked could I come to work dressed as these brothers dress? The answer is no. So then I asked is my job dress code racist or one meant to project a particular image? I answered the later. The image the company I work for seeks to project is one that they believe will benifit them and has absolutely nothing to do with me personally because everyone is affected by the dress code. I know what you thinking now, the NBA is majority Black and because of that maybe the dress code should be more intune with the majority way of dressing. I agree but when you are a slave to the dollar , a highly paid and rich slave albeit you still do not have control over yourself, your master does.
BTW, I do not think there is anything faggoty about a Blazer and Tie...
