TIL Michael Jordan ain't black, cause Space Jam 1 was dope and raked in the dough.

Perhaps the "long history of systematic racisim" was temporarily paused at that time. /s

It's so silly. When I was growing up, the most popular shows on TV were Family Matters, Fresh Prince of Bel Aire, Cosby Show (his rapings notwithstanding)... All were great shows. I still watch Fresh Prince, one of my all time favorites. It's almost like sowing racial division is a deliberate plot. Crazy huh?

Will Smith, Danny Glover, Chris Rock, Denzel Washington, Samuel Jackson, Dave Chappelle, Chris Tucker, multiple rappers like Ice Cube and dozens more from various professions all starred in their own films and became millionaires and billionaires in the 80s and 90s. And don't get me started on the 21st century...

That is true, all those great shows and the popularity. I think more and more folks are really seeing that it is fully deliberate (at least the ones that have some at least some independent thought and critical thinking skills).

So we have finally have an official start of the systematic racism? 1997, the year after space jam grossed 50 mil more domestically than Lebrons turd and 240 mil total worldwide. Good to know. Glad we got it cleared up.
