Phil Jackson doesn’t care about Black People


Damn Scoop Jackson aired Phil Jackson the fittuck out over at ESPN for some anti Hip Hop statements:

In October 2005, these words came out of his mouth:

"I think it’s important that the players take their end of it, get out of the prison garb and the thuggery aspect of basketball that has come along with hip-hop music in the last seven or eight years."


Last I looked, someone from hip-hop’s culture, Kanye West, made the cover of Time and was taking political stands through conscious statements about President Bush’s handling of Hurricane Katrina. Last I looked, someone from hip-hop’s culture, Jay-Z, had a feature story in Fortune about his success as a CEO and was GQ’s Man of The Year in Britain. Last I looked, Vanity Fair did an issue portfolio on members of our culture — Outkast, Missy, Common, Nas, Nelly, Eve, Ice Cube, The Beastie’s, Kool Herc, etc. — 38 pages, two pairs of jeans (one Dolce and Gabbana, the other Rocawear), three diamond necklaces, zero do-rags, Timberlands or guns.

    of course i dont agree with Phil… he is one of those free spirited zen master do what u feel kind of dudes… so for him to be critical of people expressing themselves is kinda out of left field…. but anyone who follows sports knows he never has had a team with a lot of young players on it he has alway prefered older matured players….so maybe he is just talking out of lack of experience
