New Basketball League Only Allows White Players: A new basketball league, the All-American Basketball Alliance, is starting up in the U.S. with hopes of establishing teams in Augusta, Ga., and 11 other cities across the south. The league is open only to "players that are natural born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race." Commissioner Don "Moose" Lewis asked, "Would you want to go to the game and worry about a player flipping you off or attacking you in the stands or grabbing their crotch?" In another interview, Lewis cites Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash as players who exemplify the kind of play he's seeking. Neither the German nor the Canadian could play in his league.
