I know; "midnight basketball" was also a racist joke that became a reality.

there was an old political cartoon showing ... actually, i think it was china, not japan... razing entire forests to make chopsticks and then having to build houses, sidewalks, cars, flagpoles, boats, etc from them because they had no trees left.

dunno about midnight basketball. is that like midnight bowling with the glowsticks and black lights?

that's not real racist, look at england, where they decimated the forests to build ships and built houses from stone.

i suppose it wouldn't work so well the other way round.

There was a joke that the best way to reduce street crime was to expand the NBA to 10,000 teams.
