Reply to "'Uncle Tom' Remark Exposes Pain in Black Community"

Quote by nuggyt: "Without looking into it too deeply, how do you or Rose or anybody else know the background of the black players that have  gone through or are currently at Duke?"


I don't know and I'll assume that Jalen Rose may or may not know either but the topic was breached, it was a valid debate issue that IMO, worthy of required further investigation and according to you "Duke does not discriminate racially" and what I take from that and correct me if I'm wrong, you are referring to "Black vs White" racial discrimination and not "Black vs Black" racial discrimination in regards to those attributes that I addressed earler in regards to what a University's unwritten agenda, intreperation and vision makes one Black person different from another Black person when all things in the realm of being qualified are on an equal footing.


So in essence, the best qualified Black applicant based on qualifications, may not get the job...ie, Stanford (Johnny Dawkins) or Harvard (Tommy Amaker) having Black basketball head coaches from Duke (which is a big deal) if that unwritten mental process by the decision maker or decision makers to separate one Black applicant from the other is used.


Example: The other black applicants (if any) applying for those two head coaching positions at Stanford or Harvard could or may have been from other major Div I schools with seasoned of experience(s) as assistants or head coaches with proven winning records equal to or more qualifed (who also gave a sensational interviews) than those who were chosen and it may have been a selection for Dawkins and Amaker based soley on "background and family" (Duke University) and not the other factors as qualifiers.


The assumption being and going back to my original point, that you're getting a "better" Black head coach simply due to him been better "suited, prepared, represented and molded as a person" than the other applicants based on his "Duke" family and background.
