I for one wish we could...but the thread is based of such stuff. And forgive me, but being a lifelong football player and 34 year old white male...what the hell does "get some burn" mean...
I'm guessing playin time????????
It's just generally accepted that Black dudes are much more athletic than white guys......white boys can't jump...and there's nothing wrong with that.

Most black people I know wouldn't give a crap about this "white's only" league, with the exception of two drama cows by the name of Al and Jesse.
And regarding the Black colleges, keep in mind those came into existence in response to "white's only" colleges, otherwise known as EVERY damn college out there. Same for the "Negro leagues", again, a response to Jim Crow laws and, until the passage of the Civil Rights, the White man's exclusion of everything "dark" from nearly all of their institutions including sports.
And that was how long ago? Seriously . . . get with the times.
So "white" colleges can't discriminate, but "black" colleges can?
