He is kinda right though

and to say he had no affect on basketball yall are crazy, before the fab five, it was short shorts, more of a white mans game, if that makes sense without being racial, which it isn't meant to be.

yall don't remember the fab five then, yeah they didn't win a big ten title, but when the tourney came around, coach fisher would be like, ok well if we lose, the seasons over, and they just turned into a different gear.

the time out by webber after he traveled was huge, and of course the year before they lost to DUKE.

duke does recruit a certain type of player, not saying that is bad, like calipari has ins in all the hoods with people, coach k, he doesn't have that. IDK about "uncle toms" but they look for a certain person.

IMO

Ironic part about this is that the same people praising Jalen Rose for being a "real n*gga" are the first ones ready to call A Sharpton whenever someone stereotypes them.
I highly doubt anybody on here would have al sharpton on speed dial if they were being discriminated against. you wouldn't have enough time to record all the black people who have dealt with discrimination and racism, so fyi...its not just the ones that you've seen on television with al sharpton.

regardless of duke's recruiting practices, i think rose is being pretty disrespectful to all the young black men who have earned their way through honesty and hard work.

How many black dudes go to Ivy league universities from a % standpoint anyways? BC that's basically what Duke is sans Coach K. Coach K would have done anything to get John Wall though. Does anyone on here think John is an "uncle tom"? That was only 1 season ago so.....Duke ain't like UK where you don't have to go to class. That s**t is real out there when it comes to academics.

Uncle Tom is a strong word.. Because a black man is educated, cares about his academics,and speaks well, does not make him an uncle tom.. This is the divisive problem we have in the community and the common misconceptions we have in our community. That ignorace is somehow accepted within our culture.. That if you're trying to better yourself, you're somehow not black or not trying to be black.. Black people have been brainwashed so much by white america that they have now accepted the generalization of all us being ignorant, as if it's normal in the black community, and more identifiable than an educated man.. But yet we would be the first to complain if a white man said "Duke only accepts uncle toms, and doesn't go for the average black man"... What is the average black person Jalen?


Oh yeah, Sean Dockery comes from one of the most roughest neighborhoods on the southside of chicago, and went to Julian H.S.. He's far from an Uncle Tom..

jalen rose said nothing wrong. he talked about how he felt AS AN 18 YEAR old, and to be honest a lotta people STILL feel this way about DUKE players even to this day. he may not feel that way now, but obviously it was in line with that the interview was about so no problem here. why dudes always lookin to get mad when people say real s**t lol?
exactly... on the air might not have been the best place for it but he kept it real...

SN: and most ppl that hate Duke are MJ fans and like UNC because of him and naturally wouldn't like the rival school...

That's like saying Your favorite player was Magic Johnson but you are a die-hard celtic fan... ironic is it not?

He said what many black people believed back then and still do.

That's why teams like UNLV, Michigan and Georgetown had more black fans

It's why players like William Avery and Corey Maggette never seemed to fit in.

why do n*ggas think that Uncle Tom is the equivalent of being educated... you can be a uncle tom and dumb as hell... smh... I think Rose is right though... look at the players they've had... all them n*ggas got the same kinda swag for lack of a better term... the only dude they've recruited so far that doesnt fit the mold is that new dude that got hurt this year... other than that, they've always had lil "good" boys... even the white boys look preppy and privileged.

Jalen Rose is a real n1gga

n1gga been saying this for a minute

this is why black people subconsciously just hate Duke
im sorry but im black ima duke fan and i didnt come from no polished family either...this is no diss on ur post...but it was a statement made at the wrong place at the wrong time...a player has the choice of what school they want to go to just as a schoool has that right to seek out the talents they want to seek for him to say some ignorant s**t like that makes him dumb as f**k.... i dont think its a matter of duke not actively recruit inner city kids....lets be real most kids coming out of the inner city is one and done players...if you trying to build a championship team who got time for a one and done who gets to the league and still is not proven...

n*gga you acting like its easy to get into Michigan. Michigan is one of this country's finest academic institutions just like Duke is. And this is coming from an Ohio State fan.
Michigan is a regular a.ss state institution with regular a.ss requirements just like O State. It wouldn't take much to get in there, especially if you are a basketball recruit. Let's keep it real, are you an Ohio State from from Ohio or from a different state? Any school willing to give in state tuition to basic a.ss students from a different state isn't going to be one of the finest institutions. It may be a good school but there is nothing special about it, and they don't pick and choose in the same manner as Duke does.

By the way checking in from Cincinnati, got into Ohio State and Michigan, but didn't go to either.

People always talk about bulls**t how everyone is holding blacks down when in fact it is black people actually holding black people back more than anything

If you look at any other race none of them view education as a bad thing

But apparently if you try to be educated and do better for yourself you are an "Uncle Tom" or a traitor to your race. What type of backwards a.ss thinking is that??

There is a difference from being educated and being an "Uncle Tom" but apparently for black people they are both the same.

Duke's 2010 Acceptance rate 13%




Michigan 2009 Fall Acceptance Rate 50%

Exactly why I used the ivy league comparison. 13% admittance rate is ridiculous.
