UCLA basketball teammates LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill apologized for stealing from MULTIPLE stores, not just from Louis Vuitton, while in China.
You don`t need to be a rocket scientist or a psychologist to deduce that this isn`t the first time these student athletes/spoiled brats have shoplifted. These morons thought that their status as star athletes rendered them above the law. They might be able to get away with shoplifting in Los Angeles, but not in in a communist country.
China allowed the basketball players to leave after a few days` detention, because they didn`t want to embarrass President Donald Trump. If Trump hadn`t been in China, those idiots would be languishing in a Chinese prison.
When the players read their apologies, prepared by their lawyers, they thanked Donald Trump.
Trump had tweeted Wednesday: Do you think the three UCLA basketball players will say thank you President Trump. They were headed for 10 years in jail.
The black basketball players humiliated themselves by thanking a racist president who was publicly demanding praise. Trump may have intervened on their behalf, but they owe their freedom to Chinese President Xi Jinping.
In America there`s still racism against people of color, especially African Americans, but it`s nothing like the prejudice against black people in China. Chinese perceive blacks the same way Americans did fifty years ago, namely that they are intellectually suspect, criminally-minded and inferior. These black athletes have just confirmed the Chinese perception of blacks. The Chinese are thinking that even blacks who are celebrated for their athleticism and treated like celebrities still resort to criminal activity.
Congratulations LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, y`all acting like Uncle Toms by apologizing to Trump, and lived up to the racist stereotype that Chinese have of blacks.
