NBA star Montrezl Harrell, a forward with the L.A. Clippers, ignited controversy after dissing the Dallas Mavericks’ Slovenian guard, Luka Doncic, as a “b**ch a*s white boy” during a scuffle.
Outkick columnist Gary Sheffield Jr. — who’s black — said the NBA must suspend Harrell to send the message that racist comments will not be tolerated.
Otherwise, the NBA is being hypocritical, especially since it has “Black Lives Matter” painted in huge letters on basketball courts for all televised games.

Sheffield and other commentators — including NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley — said if the races were reversed, the white player would immediately be suspended and his life ruined.
“The NBA has to suspend Montrezl Harrell and send a message that race-based derogatory comments like his on the basketball court won’t be tolerated. The NBA has already set this precedent with gay slurs on the court, why not with racial-based insults as well?
Montrezl Harrell’s comments have already spawned a million “If the races were reversed” conversations on social media.
There is no doubt that if Luka had referred to Montrezl Harrell as a “b*tch *ss black boy,” the social media condemnation would have rained down from the heavens on Luka. In fact, Luka would probably be suspended for the remainder of the season. He would be crushed, a social pariah in all of sports.”
To stem the fallout from his racist slur, Montrezl Harrell later apologized to Luka Doncic.
However, the NBA has not condemned Harrell’s anti-white racism or even acknowledged the incident.
It is especially important that the NBA condemn Montrezl’s racism because the league has been howling about “racial equality” for months now.
In the NBA, it is the white players who are the minorities. Black players comprise 81% of the NBA, while whites are 17.9%.

Retired NBA superstar Charles Barkley (whose daughter is half-white) trashed Harrell, saying what he did was wrong.
“He was wrong and he apologized,” Barkley said on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” post-game show. “If [Luka] had said that to a black guy [his career would be over]. You don’t get to have a double standard! The guy was wrong. He shouldn’t have said it.”
Sportscaster Ernie Johnson Jr., who’s white, said he wishes the NBA had released a statement condemning Harrell’s racist slur.

Everyone is well aware that a double standard exists.
Last week, a white radio anchor was fired simply for referring to Democrat Kamala Harris as the nation’s “first colored vice presidential candidate.”
Kyle Cornell was immediately fired by Ohio radio station WTAM despite having no documented history of workplace racism. There was also no evidence that his comment was motivated by racial animus.
Similarly, Super Bowl champion Drew Brees and his wife Brittany were barraged with death threats because Drew said he’d never disrespect the national anthem by kneeling.
The mob bullying of Drew and the death threats against his wife and their children caused the couple to issue three separate apologies for a benign remark.

Anti-white racism and violence has spiked since the media championed the Marxist Black Lives Matter movement.
In addition to overt anti-white racism, Black Lives Matter thugs have engaged in mass rioting, looting and vandalism in Democrat-run cities across the United States.
This chilling video from Wisconsin encapsulates the destructive fallout of Democrats/Black Lives Matter’s demonization of police and the false anti-white narrative they’re rabidly pushing.

Fortunately, there are pockets of sanity amid the left-wing anarchy.
