Bryant Gumbel’s “Plantation” Remark Was Thinly Veiled Attack on Jews

By Debbie Schlussel

If you know anything about Bryant Gumbel–the king of smug anti-Semitism and anti-White racism, you know that his outrageous attack on NBA Commissioner David Stern is not-so-veiled anti-Semitism and Jew-hatred.   And, frankly, it’s an attack on the many Jewish NBA owners, whose status as Jews Gumbel well knows.  As Gumbel is well aware, the false attacks on Jews by Black racists like Louis Farrakhan and Jeremiah Wright generally include the phony narrative about Jews being slave-traders (the traders were, in fact, mostly Muslims) and slave-owners.  It’s quite clear that Gumbel’s comments here are a repeat of the same.  Yes, he didn’t use the word, “Jew,” but he didn’t have to.  Everyone knows, or should know, what he meant. He has a (sadly, tolerated) history of this kind of stuff.  And here’s a tip, Bryant:  Stern and other Jews built the NBA into what it is so that the mostly Black players could command contracts worth not just tens, but now hundreds, of millions.  Without Stern and other Jews, most of these Black NBA players would be, instead, selling crack on Eight Mile, rather than living in mansions and driving Bentleys.


Racist, Bigoted Bryant Gumbel Enjoys Anti-Semitism
On Tuesday’s “Real Sports” on HBO, in talking about the NBA lockout of mostly Black multi-millionaires seeking ever more, Gumbel said of Stern that he’s a

modern plantation overseer treating NBA men as if they were his boys.

Perhaps the most unduly arrogant man in the world, Gumbel has a long history of openly attacking Jews, Israel, and White people.  That this racist bigot is still working is evidence that minorities can get away with anything.  There is a double standard, but then that’s old news.

But I don’t just blame Gumbel for his outrageous statements. I blame the liberal Jews in broadcasting who’ve promoted this thug every step of the way, making him gazillions. I guess that makes them plantation owners, too. Although it is mostly Jews that promoted anti-Israel Jew-hater Bryant Gumbel repeatedly upwards in his career–taking him from amateurish sportscaster to NBC “Today” show host (“Today” Jewish producer Jeff Zucker picked him) and then giving him a job on “Real Sports” (then produced by Ross Greenburg, a Jew) after he quit “Today,” was forced out of the “CBS Early Show” as a ratings failure, and couldn’t get anyone else to hire him–his hatred of Jews and racism against White people (except the blonde chick he’s sleeping with and whom he married after cheating on and dumping his Black wife) has grown ever more vehement.

When he was host of the “Today” show, Gumbel’s anti-Israel tirades and pointed questions against Israeli representatives and officials were constant. At the “CBS Early Show” in 2002, he asked these questions to a Jordanian official, goading him for the country’s cold peace with Israel and allegedly not being tough enough on the Jewish state:

* Other Arab states are breaking diplomatic relations with Israel. Why hasn’t Jordan done that yet?

* One writer has said that the Arab states have never appeared so impotent.  Do you agree?  [DS: This was regarding Israel’s siege of Yasser Arafat’s home in Ramallah in response to Arafat-led Islamic terrorism in Israel–this was just after the Passover Massacre, the Sbarro Pizza attack, and other massive terrorist attacks by Palestinians.]

* Sharon says the occupation will last only 2-3 weeks. Can you trust him?

As I’ve noted before, I had my own run-in with mega-egoed Gumbel, when he was trying to become a “smart PBS” talk show host and include his love of terrorism-supporting Muslims in the mix, at Detroit Metro Airport:

He was taping a now-defunct show on airport profiling, and his all-Muslim (and hijab-encrusted) producers sought comments from travelers in the airport (I was flying to L.A.). When I said that when blonde people hijack planes and blow up buildings let’s profile then, Gumbel became incensed. When I suggested that he reveal the true nature of his guest, ACLU NSA Lawsuit plaintiff and lawyer for terrorists Nabih Ayad (who was not labeled as such), Gumbel treated me to the same impotent expletives he gave Family Research Council’s Michael Knight [see below].

Just to remind you about some of Gumbel’s past behavior on TV:

* In 2000, when the Family Research Council’s Robert Knight was on Gumbel’s “CBS Early Show” (yet another in the long list of shows he burned out of), after Knight defended the Boy Scouts’ for excluding gays, Gumbel exclaimed:

What a f–king idiot!

* As I noted, in June 2006, Gumbel used his show, HBO’s “Real Sports,” to attack Ann Coulter (for being conservative). What she has to do with sports, he didn’t seem to know, but he mentioned her anyway.

* On the 2006 Winter Olympics, Gumbel said Whites are not good athletes:

Try not to laugh when someone says these are the world’s greatest athletes, despite a paucity of blacks that makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention.

Why do we continue to tolerate Bryant Gumbel’s intolerant comments? If you continue to watch HBO, specifically “Real Sports,” then you are part of the Bryant Gumbel problem, NOT the solution.

Until we get as angry and outspoken as the left did about Rush Limbaugh and Hank Williams, Jr. on ESPN, Bryant Gumbel will continue to get away with this. And he’s a Jew-hater, and a Black supremacist (except in bed), period.

Once a dunce and always a dunce, another idiot who thinks he has some special knowledge about everything but is the biggest ignoramus in the room. I remember him on the Today Show years ago arguing with a chef in a cooking segment about the proper way to cook pasta. Even after being corrected several times he wouldn’t give it up. Many productive Jews had a hand in creating the media industry he constantly milks with absolutely no talent.

Richard on October 20, 2011 at 3:26 pm

Good article DS, I’m not that surprised with Bryant Gumbel, to me the man is a jackass and is a disgrace to black folks like myself! I can tolerate his brother Greg Gumbel, atleast Greg Gumbel is more smart, keep his viewpoints to himself, and keeps his mouth shut, regardless what the mans politics are. I also remember back in the 2006 Winter Olympics, he made a semi-racist statement that “the Winter Olympics looks like the Republican Party”, and he get’s away with this BS, because he’s part-in-parcel of the far-left cabal that’s really ruining this country. And I don’t know why this schmuck took a jab at Ann Coulter, Debbie, if he’d dare take a jab-shot at you on television, I and all of us who comments here will know for sure that’ll you’ll call him out on this blog of yours or call him out for a debate, because to you don’t back down from anyone.

Sean R. on October 20, 2011 at 3:37 pm

Gumbel has been empowered for one simple reason: He is the perfect “White Black guy.” He has white facial characteristics and does not sound “Black” when he speaks.

As such, he is a white liberal’s wet dream–ditto Obama–and is immune from virtually all criticism.

I have often fantasized on what he (or Obama) would have to do to be discredited by the Oedipal White liberals.

Red Ryder on October 20, 2011 at 4:04 pm

Without David Stern, there probably wouldn’t be an NBA. He’s the best commish in the history of sports. How else to explain the fact that he took a bankrupt, drug-infested league staffed by mostly black players and sold it as cool to white affluent audiences.

I’d like to hear from black players, present and former, who know this, but I doubt they will say anything. Anti-semitism is now widespread among blacks in America.

The schvatzas went nuts when Dallas outplayed
Miami, owned by two Jewish billionaires.

The NBA and NFL can both drop dead. Do concussions
truly affect the already brain dead.

Their next great meltdown will be if Cain runs

    The only thing Bryant Gumbel did wrong was,to leave his gorgeous wife June for that Blonde extremely aged Tart.

Why give this no-talent any attention? This was another of those “Hey, notice me,” moments has-been TV hosts have every once in a while to feel like someone is watching their putrid lives. I don’t and you shouldn’t waste any time on him. His brother, Greg, seems like he got all the smarts and humility in the family. If not, he certainly keeps his personal views to himself, as they all should.

I love this article. You are a beauty Debbie. You and Paul Kersey may have been trading notes on this brilliant piece. I wish that someone would hand Bryan Gumbel a black klansmen robe and a black horse along with all of these black teenagers who are terrorizing our nations cities so that they can show their true colors.
I am amazed that Gumbel and his fellow henchmen have not attacked Synagoges and Churches the way his henchmen do a daily double on McDonald’s, IHOP’s, amusement parks, school district’s, buses, subways, cities, and whatever else they can get a hold of.
The NBA has not been worth watching for a long time. Long gone are the days of John Havlicheck, Tom Boerwinkle, Jerry Sloan, Rick Barry, Tom and Dick Van Ardale. Long gone are the Cincinnati Royals and the small market teams.

Confederate South on October 20, 2011 at 7:45 pm

Hey Debbie…I don’t believe Tim Duncan or David Robinson would be selling crack if they were not NBA players. Do Jewish people do anything worth criticism?

malibu on October 20, 2011 at 7:50 pm

Affirmative Action anchor Bryant Dumbel sounds like he was kicked in the nuts long ago. I simply can’t listen to his prissy, falsetto voice any longer. I wonder what conservative, and usually-spot-on “Real Sports” cohost Bernard Goldberg thinks of him?

nailsagainsttheboard on October 20, 2011 at 8:49 pm

Without preferential treatment his entire life neither he nor his gap toothed brother would have the jobs they hold. Such a walking talking libtard robot.

samurai on October 20, 2011 at 10:09 pm

I think his statement was stupid and it detracted from his point about how heavy handed Stern has been with the labor talks with the NBA players; however, it was in no way anti-Semitic. Gumble was just saying how some of the NBA players feel that the owners and Stern are causing this lockout. It has nothing to do with anybody’s religion.

Time Wave on October 20, 2011 at 10:50 pm

You hit the proverbial nail on the head Deb. Gumble is a fraud and a hypocrite. He pretends to be “down with the struggle” to stay tight with the homies but its all just an act. What a loser. Never could stand that creep.

As for the thug squads in the NBA, I don’t watch them anymore. I haven’t watched an NBA game since Larry Bird led the Boston Celtics to their championship win over the Lakers back in the 80s. I refuse to support the thug lifestyle of the players today.I

As for the anti-Jewish/White comments that came out of Grumble’s pie hole, I think people are really getting sick of the
double standard.

Glad to see you call this turd out. Its high time somebody did.

Claire Voiyant on October 20, 2011 at 11:01 pm

Lol at his comments on the winter Olympics. I guess all those Russian atheltes are terrified of the day when Kenyans take up ice-skating? I wonder who’ll win that competition — probably Olga.

Can I ask — when was the last time (or first) when a black person won the world’s strongest man competition? Oh, they haven’t…….

I guess Mark Spitz and Michael Phelps only won all their gold medals because black-Africa didn’t send swimmers. Oh wait, all the top African swimmers in the world are actually white — South Africa, Zimbabwe etc.

And ssshhh everyone, but here’s another fact — did you know that in world sport (and the Olympics both Summer and Winter show this), Caucasian athletes not only win the highest proportion of gold medals but do so across the the greatest diversity of disciplines. But hey, keep that one quiet because we don’t want to upset a racist black man with a chip on his shoulder the size of Oprah’s arse-cheeks.

You’ve got to pity people like Gumbel. He perceives a deficiency in his life and thus blames certain people for his anger at the world.The failing of every black person in society must be attributed to white people (I include Jews in that term). It’s an age old tactic. Blame the ‘other’. Not yourself.

But facts exist independent of his racially motivated lies.And the only people who believe his words are fellow racists, white liberals with guilt, and people with IQs lower than that of a rock.

Barry on October 21, 2011 at 4:23 am

As usual Debbie I love how you put things in perspective. I’ve never liked Bryant Gumby. He is a world class hypocrite and a fake. It’s funny that this obama butt kisser cheated on his black wife with a white woman. Talk about stupid seeing how he feels about jewish people and whites in general. Hey gumby get over yourself because us hard working AMERICANS could care less about what you and people like you say period. Racist buttmonkey.

ken b on October 21, 2011 at 8:13 am

No offense, but just because the person he is calling out is a Jew doesn’t mean he is calling him out because he is a Jew. I can see some racist undertones, but anti-jewish is a stretch.

Anyway, David Stern is a Council on Foreign Relations member; as such, he is more interested in globalization than in protecting America’s sovereignty. Considering he helped build 8 NBA-style arenas in China after the 2008 Olympics, and the NBA superstars are showing a willingness to play overseas, this “lock-out” is nothing more than an attempt to push the market overseas.

Yup, the Jew you are defending is an America-hating neo-liberal who wants to pull his product out of America and send it to the communist Chinese. A sell out to his people (Americans, since 85-90% of Jews aren’t real Jews according to mitochondrial DNA testing – they are decedents of converts from 7th century Europe; and since it is a non-proselytizing religion, you really can’t convert, now can you?)

eric g on October 21, 2011 at 8:52 am

    Non-proselytizing doesn’t mean you cannot convert—it means that we don’t shoot people for not converting, like your favorites.

    For example, Sammy Davis Jr. was a famous Jewish convert.

    Try knowing something before you blather, moron.

Never in my life paid any attention to this nebish.

Not Ovenready on October 21, 2011 at 11:19 am

I thought Bryant Gumbell was retired or dead. Hadn’t heard any of his inane comments for many years. How sad is it that a guy that untalented can have a high paying job for life? Maybe being a black racist helps? He turned me off many years ago with the way he treated Deborah Norville and his ultra liberal rants on the Today show. I don’t think Stern is any hero, but he’s no plantation owner and those over paid players aren’t slaves.

Daniel K on October 21, 2011 at 11:24 am

Bryant Gumbel long has epitomized a certain political type: the genteel anti-racist activist who looks for “offenses” in every stray word or action of a white public figure. He’s on the Left, of course, but with a non-threatening style. That’s why the comparison with Barack Obama is more than apt. News and sports broadcast journalism, meanwhile, suffers his presence.

Seek on October 21, 2011 at 12:18 pm

Bryant Gumbel is a Marxist, an anti-Semite, and a racist. However, attributing his attack on David Stern, who by the way is a left-liberal and has done a terrible job as a commissioner precisely because of his liberalism, is untenable. Please recall that Gumbel used similar language to the late NFLPA leader Gene Upshaw, calling him a “house slave” for failing to seek guaranteed contracts for NFL players like the ones that exist in the NBA. So, if Upshaw was the “house slave”, then that made the NFL owners “slave owners.” Gumbel ascribes to that old Black Panther ideology, which added a racial dimension to the class struggle. Original Marxism (created by racist whites) held that the upper class exploited the lower class because they were greedy for money and power. Black Marxism – which Gumbel subscribes to – added the idea that the upper class was mostly white, the lower classes were mostly nonwhite, and that capitalism was a tool of white supremacy. So, calling wealthy whites who rely on a mostly black labor force “plantation owners” is common Black Panther rhetoric that has nothing to do with Judaism. Now the black Marxist left did become anti-Semitic over time, although the reason why hasn’t been conclusively identified. It is a curious development as liberal Jews aided – and in many cases recruited and sponsored – black radicalism at least since Joel Spingarn and company founded the NAACP and made the communist W.E.B. Du Bois its figurehead.

Gumbel – and various other blacks – have had it out for Stern ever since Stern instituted a dress code (which Gumbel specifically mentioned) and took other steps (such as encouraging the recruitment of international players) about 10 years ago to address the sharp decline in NBA ratings and attendance. Now keep in mind: Stern is VERY LIBERAL, and as such had a very good relationship with black leaders. Gumbel and company felt that Stern was using racist tactics to win back white fans. (The truth is that NBA ratings and attendance declined among blacks too, but this was ignored.) Gumbel and those with his mindset honestly felt that it would have been better to allow the NBA to go bankrupt over lack of support from white fans than to “pander to racists”, and in their minds when the chips were down, Stern, despite his decades of liberal activism and support of liberal causes, was exposed as just another capitalist willing to exploit blacks when his money and power was threatened. Again, according to this mindset more blacks would have been helped by Stern’s allowing the NBA to fold by “refusing to accommodate itself to the racism of white mainstream culture and corporate sponsors” than harmed by the NBA’s no longer providing blacks income (which, if one ascribes to the “institutional racism” theory, is actually valid thinking, as the NBA only employs a tiny number of blacks, and most NBA athletes fail to properly manage their riches, and as a matter of fact fail to so much as provide for themselves and their families, let alone use their wealth to empower the black community by redistributing it, which has long been a fantasy of black Marxists … amazingly, Bill Cosby publicly denounced the idea that black athletes and entertainers had some responsibility to “spread the wealth” in the black community and instead advanced the notion that blacks were responsible for helping themselves). But the irony that Gumbel, the epitome of black integration and success (derided as a “sell out” by other blacks in the process, including by the atrocious “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” no less) came to view Stern negatively because Stern attempted to reduce the NBA’s depiction of black criminal culture, which was causing young blacks to embrace this culture and become criminals, as opposed to successful, educated blacks like Gumbel! But Gumbel is too blinded by his devotion to his ideology to appreciate the irony. Gumbel also refuses to acknowledge that Stern put up with the underclass culture in the NBA far longer than did Major League Baseball (who began to put a stop to it in the 80s using their minor league system) and the NFL (who started to confront it in the early 90s and finally succeeded with their current commissioner) because of Stern’s liberalism, and cost his sport billions in the process. (Stern really is terrible … the NBA succeeded in spite of him; its success was actually due to Nike, NBC and the NCAA tournament and individual owners and players, and not Stern’s leadership.)

But again, Gumbel’s statement was motivated by black Marxist politics, not anti-Semitism. If you want to make the case that black Marxism is inherently anti-Semitic (a charge that Cornel West has long worked to refute) then go ahead.

Gerald on October 21, 2011 at 1:11 pm

Should have been “However, attributing his attack on David Stern, who by the way is a left-liberal and has done a terrible job as a commissioner precisely because of his liberalism, TO ANTI-SEMITISM is untenable”

Gerald on October 21, 2011 at 1:13 pm

Although I found Gumbel’s comments objectionable and race-baiting, you make me ashamed to be a Jew, something that is very hard to do. And your ultra-conservative bull is just that.

donniem on October 21, 2011 at 1:32 pm

Oh please Donniem, how the hell is DS making you ashamed to be a jewish person? More likely you’re one of these stupid leftist jews who does alot of pandering to muslims and islamist? And you’re probably the Larry David, Sarah Silverman type of jews who ridicules and attacks christians, etc. And I also assume you’re probably a “kapo”, you’ll be the type of jew who sold out his own folks to Hitler and his Nazi party during the holocaust era. Debbie Schlussel is a proud jewish woman and is a tough, brave and gritty individual.

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on October 21, 2011 at 1:56 pm

Great intellectual commentary, Gerald! By the way, it this the same Bryant Gumbel who divorced his “Black” wife of 27 years to marry his “White” girlfriend? And he is now the spokesperson for Black folks? Ever since he pulled that stunt, everything else he does is suspect to me…

Justin on October 21, 2011 at 2:04 pm

The NBA has shown its true colors when they permitted
an Islamic billionaire to buy a Franchise.The Maloofs
in Sacramento are losing a bundle and are
destined for Tripoli.

There are numerous Hi-Tech billionaires anxious
to own a franchise, they have to convince themselves
to compete in foreign capitals.That’s where Stern’s
acumen to globalize the NBA comes into play.
A strike here for the season would allow greater
exposure for the elite players to play on
foreign soil.

Settling differences between the
great unwashed masses on the court,like they operate
in the hood, is therapeutic and rewarding.
Television audiences love to watch the exploits
of Hood Rats; a rich fat rat is easier to manipulate
than a starved one.
Its too bad they didn’t sell Quaddafi
a team. It would have been far cheaper
than the radical alternative.

Jai on October 21, 2011 at 5:12 pm

I haven’t watched or heard either Gumble in years because I stopped watching the NBA years ago.

I used to have a near-religious devotion to the pro game when I was growing up in Columbus, Ohio.

I would run home as fast as I could to make sure I didn’t miss a single second of my beloved Cincinatti Royals, led by the magnificent Oscar Robertson,take on [and get whipped by] the Boston Celtics[BOO!]

I was running to catch the game on the RADIO, not the TV.That’s how devoted I was.
But those days are long gone, replaced by something that’s hard to recognize anymore.

Linky Drake on October 22, 2011 at 8:59 am

Debbie, if I am not mistaken, this is not the 1st time Gumbel has played the “plantation card”. Just my opinion but I did not view it as an anti-Semitic attack on Stern. Gumbel is just an idiot and always has been.

Brian Cuban on October 22, 2011 at 4:19 pm

WoW! A bunch of racist comments to refute an alleged anti-Semitic one! I could state a bunch of facts to refute most of what i have read here but the truth is that we have all not really done a good job at first attempting to understand each other. As a result there is obviously from the ideas written here a lot of hatred to go around. Truly intelligent people understand that if they are expressing a thought they should not allow the smaller side of themselves to speak for them. Something that 90% of the bloggers have obviously done here today. In the Financial Services industry that I work in, I hear the most discusting things imaginable said about Jewish people, and believe me when I say, it is not Blacks saying them! Why all the racist hate? You guys sound like the Nazi ideology of self hate has worked its way into your minds. And now you all are spewing it at others. Be careful, because I don’t think we need that at this time.

Chazz6962 on October 22, 2011 at 11:45 pm

Who knows what evil lurks, and where Debbie you do, Congrats, Mobruk! and I only wish that I did not have to hear that Bryant is still attempting “overcome” his “Tom” image given to him by so many in the black community, years ago (his light complexion).
Afraid to go for the white majority he prefers the usual scapegoat, the Kosher Jewish neck. He is the media created Frankenstein attacking his Jewish creators. Heck, its almost Halloween!
As far as the Wall Street, don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater, of course Hamas is co-opting, a thousand years ago the Catholic Church would have jumped on this bandwagon. Check our history, if anything economically goes wrong anytime, anywhere, who gets blamed?
Why are we surprised? After all we sold the son of their lord out for thirty pieces of silver. Today 29.95. Christmas pagents never let us forget. As far as the countless crimes other faiths, and nations committed, they have Alzheimers.
Muslims, they loved Christians, always have, don’t you know?

Ron Wolf on October 24, 2011 at 7:56 pm

In addition to his racism and Jew hatred, Gumbel is a smug, talentless narcissist with absolutely no charm. He is typical of the new class of entertainers, “journalists”, etc. Gumbel’s career- and those of countless others in “journalism” and entertainment- remind me of a line from Smiley’s People: “I’ve seen good men go to wall and the idiots get promoted with a dazzling regularity”

Martin on October 25, 2011 at 10:20 am

Dear Debbie:
It is interesting to note that every Arab I have met sooner or later blames the Jews for all their problems and talks about how dirty the Jews are and very manipulative.It is also very interesting to note that every Jew I have met does the same exact thing!!! The common denominator in all of this is simple!! none of these peoples have ever taken the spec out of their own eye!! Why?…Pride! Jesus never came for a people such as these! Jesus said” I have not come for the righteous, I have come for the sinner.Those who are self righteous,educated, and see themselves as law abiding good citizens have no need of a savior.God speaks to men in many ways but men do not perceive it.God can chose to speak out of a donkey(Balaam) in the old testament.This shows that god is not limited in power.Why don’t you admit that you are a sinner in need of a savior and repent?…

Samson Babayan on November 15, 2011 at 8:55 pm

Stern is a horrible commissioner….and he needs to bow out gracefully ,everyone wants him out.We all know jews only hire jews.Hence all heads of the major movie companies are jew….most owners of pro teams are jewish and all heads of sports are jewish…But i say good for the jews ,hey if you can keep the money and power all to yourself more power to you…. All of us dumb ass Black folk need to learn ,maybe take a few notes how about black athletes hire black agents instead of jew agents…. Oh well thats the way the ball bounces or the Yamaka falls !!

Bill on January 26, 2012 at 10:48 pm

I ve come to realized that many of the problems Israel is facing on the PR department is of their own making,a jew created this untalented boob and gave him a plataform and bullhorn so now this boob attacks jews and Israel openly and venomously…but look at the bigger picture jews vote Democrat and as far as I know Israel has no worse enemy in America than the DNC,we conservatives try to help and do help,but oh Israel oh Israel…..Abraham’ s and Jacob’s people are willfully blind,jews in a way are their own worst enemy.still Bryan G is an a.hole.

Juan on February 16, 2012 at 10:04 pm

I have to agree with Malibu (and anyone else who mentioned it). I think it’s very telling that you suggest black men would sell crack if they didn’t get contracted to play basketball. This comment makes me question your use of the word “thug” when referencing Gumbel.

nikki joy on June 5, 2012 at 9:31 am


You sound, no you are a RACIST yourself!!!!

Larry Bird and Magic Johnson made the NBA and Stern just rode the wave of their popularity. Stern runs the league like a dictator Debbie.

Debbie, even though you have a very high opinion of yourself, your knowledge of sports is limited.

ty on June 18, 2012 at 4:42 pm

This article is also also over the place and digresses and lacks clear focus.

ty on June 18, 2012 at 4:44 pm

I did not take offense to what Gumbel said anyhow and I am not sure he was aiming his comments at any one group.

William Rhoden and others have written about the plantation mentality which does exists in sports.

Yes, there is a plantation mentality in sports whether one wants to admit it or not.

If one wants to read quality sports articles and the double standards of the sports world, then I suggest you read the works of Dave Zirin at the Nation.

Dave forgot more about sports than Debbie Schlussel will ever know.

ty on June 18, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Why does less than 1% of the USA’s population own 95% of all NBA teams? Ridiculous.

Ban the NBA on February 18, 2013 at 11:25 am

Lolol your some kind of hypocrite. Complaining about Jews being discriminated against in one sentence, then in the next saying if it wasn’t for jewish NBA owners (completely negating the work non-jews did in making the nba what it is today) that every black player would be selling crack in Detroit. I dont like Gumbel, but your a bigger racist piece of shit than he will ever be. Jews have been persecuted for thousands of years we all know that- but I bet you grew up an upper middle class Jew whose only hardship was sleeping without air conditioning in your bunk at summer camp. Go fuck yourself your hypocritical cunt.

sean on July 30, 2013 at 1:58 pm

I’m sure Gumbal views Stern as just another rich white man. And I’m sure Stern views us goyim. As I heard a Jewish colleague recently explain to two black nurses we work with: “Jews don’t consider ourselves white.” I wanted to add: except in cases where it benefits you.

Nietzschean on January 28, 2014 at 1:45 pm

How come Jews are the number one advocates of open borders multiculturalism everywhere in the West but yet they have no problem with Israel protecting its Jewish character through racial marriage, immigration and citizenship laws? Wake up, goyim. Watch how the media portrays you in their movies and television. They openly mock you and everything you value. You pro-israel Christians, you want to know how Jews really feel about you? Observe the hatred and contempt heaped on Sarah Palin, the shiksa goddess of their fantasies and nightmares.

Relax, Debbie. Gimbal doesn’t hate Jews; he hates white people. I’m sure he accepts the Jewish view of themselves as “the good whites.”

I sure did not appreciate your statement “Without Stern and other Jews, most of these Black NBA players would be selling crack”. Your distasteful comment shows that you are a racist and group people in one pile because of their skin color. You sound way worse than what you’re insulted about. Learn first to not be a racist before you get insulted about Bryant. Learn more about blacks and you will earn some credibility. Tolerance in one one way! Enroll in a few diversity courses to ease your blatant ignorance.
