Posted Monday March 19, 2012, About: Jeremy Lin Bringing Back Racism
Good post- I'm actually doing a school project on racism in the NBA, highlighting Jeremy Lin's story. I plan on writing a couple blog posts on the info I have researched. As a Knicks fan, I'm definitely also noticing discrimination on the part of NBA refs and players...Lin hardly seems to get any calls when driving to the basket, and I've seen several players in recent games grabbing his jersey, intentionally pushing him to the ground and getting away with some pretty obvious fouls. Probably because these players don't want to get beat by an Asian, but it makes me wonder that if Lin wasn't Asian, would he not be taking such a beating by NBA players.
