I'll take LeBron over Jordan ANY DAY. Now Jordan? Is a COON! Cuz he had BIG money loooooooong before Lebron came on the scene. So he can take those little dollars back and stick it where the sun don't shine. But!

I absolutely agree! Considering just how much money Jordan has made, and how long he went without doing a damn thing for African America, including poor African American children and youth in North Carolina, or even his own damn home town.

Michael, listen, by really giving more, $$,$$$,$$$, you will exemplify a spirit of generosity in how we help one another and connect with one another. You want that?! Meet the challenge like a great man. By giving greatly, you will emanate real care to all. You still get to keep your millions and millions, but now you exemplify fatherly care to your people by creating institutions, for example, that economically lift up the youth. Will you do all that? If not, you should be bitch-slapped!

Hell, how about including Blacks in your business, creating jobs for Blacks, underwriting businesses that serve the Black community. Doing such will do more than just a shot in the arm but will create economic institutions Blacks can thrive on and he still makes a profit. The irony is, he does it all the time but with white people.

You're not the "top banana" anymore, Michael. How's those twins? Congratulations to Cam Newton for keeping the promise to his mother by graduating from college. I just read he received a degree in Sociology from Auburn University. All I know, he was one sharp mamma jamma walking in front of that camera on his way to play in the Super Bowl. Intelligent, handsome young fella. I know you've made your mother PROUD! Congratulations to her too, for producing a son such as YOU.

Jordan use to have a gambling problem a few years ago. I'm willing to bet his $500k donation might be equivalent to a few hand of Poker in Vegas for him. It's kinda funny that the NBA people I listed above who gave the most HAPPEN to have been married to Black women at the time of those deals they made. Coincidence? I don't know but has Jordan or Kobe done to help their community. Maybe we are just an eyesore to them now.

Amen to the "patronizing." Folks have a talent others are willing to pay to see. When it gets right down to it, they're people just as we. It's not good to IDOLIZE anyone. If you want to see, see; if not, don't. It's as easy as that!

Wow. Now, that's what I'm talking about. Our pro athletes have no excuse , since even that 10% can be written off on their taxes as charity; and the same goes for African American actors, entertainers, artists, "Rappers", and rich African Americans, and the same goes for African American businesses and corporations.

Wait, wait, wait, there are cultures on the continent that need to be taken to the village and taught. Start with Hoko Haram and that place in the Congo where folks thought they'd use a brother as a tasty snack. After the continent's healed, then worry about "other" cultures. The whole African continent needs to be lifted, reconnected with true nature, be reminded who they are until they can remember "I AM GOOD."
