This whole situation is out of control. I don’t watch the NBA pregame show on TNT, so I haven’t seen many of the clips that Shaq has posted of McGee. I do know that McGee has done some really dumb stuff on the court. However, this quote from the Sporting News is outrageous:
“… He is bullying men of color. When you bully men of color who play your same position … we as a society have to stop condoning ignorant behavior. And, yes, as African-Americans, we have always had individuals who will sell out their communities for two barrels of rum. This is straight-up black-on-black oppression.”
The quote is from McGee’s mom. Yes, NBA players moms are getting involved in Twitter/TV beefs. McGee’s mom is trying to really blow this whole situation way out of proportion. The whole thing is asinine.
