All-white basketball league being started by Georgia man

Don "Moose" Lewis is the commissioner of the All-American Basketball Alliance, which is a new league consisting of only US-born, white males. He claims that he's not racist, but I find that to be pretty hard to believe. But at this point, even if he isn't racist, he's still one of the biggest morons to ever try to start a new sports league.

One of the main rules: Only players that are natural born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league.

Sounds fun, right? I mean... it would be just like the NBA... except without Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Dwight Howard... well... I think you get the idea.

I'm not sure why Lewis is trying to pretend he's not racist. The more he talks, the more it becomes apparent:
"There's nothing hatred about what we're doing. I don't hate anyone of color. But people of white, American-born citizens are in the minority now. Here's a league for white players to play fundamental basketball, which they like. Would you want to go to the game and worry about a player flipping you off or attacking you in the stands or grabbing their crotch? That's the culture today, and in a free country we should have the right to move ourselves in a better direction."

I don't even know what to say.
