At least that's how one commenter to the American Thinker article termed it: UCLA Basketball Team Leaves China, Minus 3 Players Held for Alleged Shoplifting

Read the comments section. I think people are getting tired of people being held to milder standards regarding the law just because of their skin color, thus the NFL boycotts.

I'm sure some kind of deal will be cut. But it's a reminder of the creeping racism built into the so-called "social justice warriors." A number of people mentioned an incident where some Oberlin College black students engaged in shoplifting and Gibson Food Mart & Bakery was somehow damaged by the Oberlin administration for reporting it.

We can't fix all the racist or racial aspects of our culture by the Chinese hopefully giving due punishment to these 3 black players. But it would be a start, if only as a reminder of how much we've allowed various victim groups to get away with stuff merely because of the color of their skin.

Of course, in China we have to wonder if the charges are valid. But that's always a problem, just worse there because they don't have much in the way of due process of law.

China is not North Korea. I have little doubt that the charges are valid. China is full of foreigners and I have never heard of them inventing charges like shoplifting for arresting foreigners. If the Chinese government wants you they generally go after you for corruption or speaking out against the Party. The rarely waste time on such small things as inventing shoplifting charges.

The optimum outcome is if we traded them to China for an order of Peking roasted duck.

Regarding whether they did it or not, the original article was fairly certain there existed some security video that had them. As much as I dislike Communism, if they caned these players or put them in jail for a couple months of hard labor, I’d be okay with that. Short of that, I’d take a straight swap: In exchange for the players, we send them Janet Napolitano.

Janet Capone would be a good choice for a trade, but in this case the more such people we send them the better. I once had the idea that "the number of the beast" actually referred to 666 radical leftists. The actual number today probably is a good bit higher (666,000 perhaps?).

I am afraid that may require one or two more zero's on the end of that number Timothy. 6.6 million or 66 million.
