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

While it does sound to me like Jalen Rose definitely has some anger/resentment/abandonment/Daddy issues ... it seems to me his anger is mis-directed!!

Why blame Grant Hill (or any other Black Duke player) for what seems more like the prejudiced/bigoted/racist practices of DUKE UNIVERSITY ... and not the (Black) players they pursue to recruit?!?! 

I mean ... it's not Grant Hill's fault if Duke makes a practice out of racially-profiling and nit-picking a specific "type" of player.  And would Rose suggest that those players - other young, Black men such as himself - reject the opportunity for a free, full-ride education from a top-notch university ... simply because they wouldn't offer someone like him one? 

Crabs in a barrel.
