Ex-NBA Player Sonny Weems Get Called N-Word By Chinese Basketball Fans After Getting Off The Team Bus

There is almost nowhere Black people can go where they can escape racism.

Doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor, famous or just a regular person, or even if you’re an athlete.

Case in point, Sonny Weems. A video has gone viral of an incident that happened while he was playing in China and it’s a little disturbing. He and another Asian player got into an altercation which ended with both of them being ejected.

After Weems got ejected, fans started calling him the n-word and telling him to get out of China. Then it happened again when he was getting off the team bus.

The CBA sent out a statement saying they have a zero-tolerance for that type of behavior and asked fans not to do it.  If you arent familiar with Sonny Weems.

Clarence “Sonny” Weems is an American professional basketball player for the Guangdong Southern Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA). He played college basketball for the University of Arkansas and the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith. He was selected by the Chicago Bulls in the 2008 NBA draft and shortly thereafter traded to the Denver Nuggets. He has since played for the Toronto Raptors, Phoenix Suns and Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA, and has had stints in Lithuania and Russia. At 6 ft 6 in (1.98 m), Weems plays both the shooting guard and small forward positions. He was an All-EuroLeague First Team selection in 2014.

October 8, 2018, Weems signed with the Guangdong Southern Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association. With Guangdong, he won three consecutive CBA titles from 2019 to 2021, and was named Finals MVP in 2020 after averaging 34.7 points in a 2–1 series against Liaoning Flying Leopards.

You would think he would be treated better considering he is former Finals MVP, but alas you are black no matter where you at in this cold cruel world.
