I lumped it in but believe what you want to read. Of course I was over stating it. Like come on you think I am an idiot

I donít throw my hands up and say racism. It is an excuse I will never use. I never say someone does do something for me because they are racist against me. To me itís a cop out.

My analogy of the soccer thing is something I heard and didnít want to believe it. However 3 parents told me it and said my daughter should be on the team

Take it for what you guys want to argue about but I donít like when people scream racism. It is how I feel and I never use it ever.

Yes as a parent I do tell my kids they will hear it and to turn a blind eye/ear to it. Just never associate yourself with idiots who talk garbage

No I don't, that's why I'm surprised you did lump it in. BLM is not even remotely close to the kkk or nazis. You're only believing what, well, those people from those groups want you to believe. I have two acquaintances who are part of the Detroit chapter of BLM. They are not violent. They are not looking to hurt people. They are raising awareness of the OBVIOUS discrimination against all types of people. Black people, muslims, asians, latinos, trans, gay, etc. I don't live in Canada so I won't pretend to know what the racial tension is there but here there is an obvious problem at it starts with the government.

Do some BLM members get in fights. Duh. Guess what? There are TML fans who get in fights when visiting other arenas and even in the home arena. Are TML fans just like the kkk and nazis then? Hmmm? You can say you were overstating it but the fact is you said it and didn't say anything till you were called out on it. But I should have taken my own advice and moved on from it. But alas, I didn't. But I'm going to bed now so I will have cooled off by tomorrow and will just let it go. Have a good night.

As I states earlier I donít lump them in with the kkk and nazis. Just saying I donít like minorities screaming racism every single time. I move on if anything and believe everyone is equal

Is there a blm group in Toronto. Yes. Do I like it? Of course not because I donít scream racism every time

I know a lot of people because of what I do. White black Chinese Jewish Indian gay etc. Do I advertise my beliefs? If they ask yes I would. If they donít like it they can go and find another accountant because I donít care.

I believe not to scream racism every time

When I played hockey my team (who I was the captain of) got called chinks. I sat in our dressing room asking the guys if I should complain since I really donít care. We as a group said they donít care either. I actually did call the league and they said if it happens again the player will be suspended. Well it happen the next game we played and to he honest we didnít care since we just beat the heck out of them on the scoreboard

Another time I was playing golf and one white guy was married to a Jamaican. He asked me about blm and I told him how I felt. Guess what I felt a little bitterness towards me. Did I care. Absolutely not

Now back to the original point do I like when people scream racism. No donít like it. It is my opinion and to be honest it is heart felt.

I just feel there are other avenues to fight racism than have organizations that scream racism all the time

Itís amazing as good as the Raptors are in my opinion they have very little chance to win a championship this year.

In hockey it wouldnít surprise us if any one of 10-12 teams won a cup this year.

that's the NBA for you.

I would say that Raptors have probably their best chance in franchise history to go to the NBA finals this year, though it'll probably still end up being Cavs/GSW

I know there are diehard basketball fans but itís just a sport that is very difficult to get into. The Raptors are having an epic year. But the script is pretty much written.

Golden State beats Cleveland in the finals.

Lebron signs with the Lakers in the off season. They pick up 2 other top end players and compete for a title next year.

Hmm. Iím that scenario Raptors can make finals next year.

It's a low variance sport. It's one of the reasons I've never gotten really into it, though I do enjoy it now more than I used to.

This is why hockey is the greatest sport on earth and the NHL playoffs the most exciting two months of the year.

Winning is always better than losing. The younger generation are huge basketball fans, so I hear it from Otto. Plus the players are always nicer to Otto.

Masai is basically allergic to assholes so the Raptors are an asshole free zone.
