It is the Chinese year of the Monkey. The Kings scrapped shirts after their star player took offense to the monkey on it. Now if that isn’t the dumbest shit I’ve ever heard. WTF does the year of the monkey have to do with black people? It doesn’t even cross my mind to be offended about such things. African Americans really need to start expanding their horizon past American social issues. If anything, he should have taken the time to complain about why their were no shirts for black history month, instead he complains about other people’s culture (asians have a large population in NorCal) and the organization was merely trying to make them happy. These are the same people that pay for tickets and thus pay for his income. I just can’t understand the overt sensitivity, you see a monkey and actually associate it with you? WTF??????? That in itself is almost racist because you’re associating. How can you expect people to celebrate your culture when you can’t even recognize other peoples? Sheer ignorance, and the Kings shouldn’t have removed shit and explained how there is a huge world out there, to him.
