All White, All The Time

The Augusta Chronicle Reports:

The All-American Basketball Alliance announced in a news release Sunday evening that it intends to start its inaugural season in June and hopes Augusta will be one of 12 cities with a team. “Only players that are natural born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league,” the statement said.

Did I miss something or does Brown v. Board of Education not apply to the sport of basketball anymore? Or perhaps the Alliance is upset because 82% of players in the NBA were black in the 2008-2009 season and they can no longer root for Jimmy Chitwood anymore.
