Rex Chapman Proves Public Sensitivity Over The Race of Jeremy Lin

Former NBA Star and University of Kentucky standout Rex Chapman’s tweet yesterday regarding Jeremy Lin and new teammate JR Smith had very little to do with race. The people who shrugged off the Chink in the Armor story are not even going to notice this one. That doesn’t mean people aren’t going to get swept up in the race aspect of this story.

It is probably more of a commentary on JR Smith as opposed to anything, and if you ask me, its pretty damn funny.

Is it racist to say that JR Smith was playing with people who look like Jeremy Lin? No way.

This isn’t a penis size joke, this isn’t a yellow mamba joke, this isn’t some dry cleaner, nail salon or good at math joke. People who are calling this “racially charged” need to sit down and drink a Capri Sun and watch a little Matlock or something.

For his part, Chapman’s response was pretty clear on his feelings about what he said.

Also when somebody indicated he would get fired for his comments, his response was a simple “you can get fired from Twitter?”
