jabari-parker-=2014-nba-draft

In the wee hours of Wednesday morning we learned that the first black President in U.S. history will now give way to a new one who is endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan. Barack Obama’s now inevitable replacing by Donald Trump as the leader of the free world, will officially be celebrated by the KKK with a parade in North Carolina on December 3rd, according to The Hill.

The most recently updated popular vote count has Hillary Clinton ahead of Trump by about 1.8 million votes, and there are still many ballots left to be counted in heavily Democratic counties.

John Oliver mocking the Milwaukee Bucks “Fear the Deer” marketing promo– “Deers aren’t scary, they’re timid forest ponies with sticks on their head.”

Public money then goes to support an arena where the entrance fees can only be afforded by those in the leisure class, or higher.

milwaukee-bucks-NBA-larry-drew

Poor Jabari Parker. He’s got to be part of a Milwaukee Bucks franchise that is a professional sports team in name only.
