Youth Basketball Team Gets the Axe After Taking Court in INSANELY Racist Jerseys (VIDEO)

youth basketball team kicked out of league over racist jerseys

A boys basketball team has been kicked out of the Cincinnati Premier Youth Basketball League after taking the court in offensive jerseys.

This isn’t a case of political correctness run amok, either. This is a case of insanely poor judgement by every single adult associated with the team.

The team was made up of kids from West Clermont High School. However, it was in no way affiliated with the school or the West Clermont Local School District. Instead, it was part of the CPYBL’s recreational high school league.

On Sunday they took the court in blue jerseys with the name “Wet Dream Team” on the front. On the backs, instead of names, players had racial slurs such as “Knee Grow” and “Coon.”

Charrise Middleton, the coordinator of the recreational division of the Cincinnati Premier Youth Basketball League, issued a statement condemning the jerseys.

“Kings Rec Basketball for grades 7-12 does not in any way support or condone the uniform infractions that occurred,” Middleton said. “We strictly follow and support the rules set out by [Cincinnati Premier Youth Basketball League] and fully support their decision to remove the team from play as well.”

The team’s coach—whose name we do not know, but who is either really racist or really stupid—issued his own statement through Middleton. It is also stupid.

“We sincerely apologize to anyone that was offended by the jerseys,” the statement reads, as though anybody with a brain could not be offended.

“We offered to cover them up or change,” the coach continued, “however the league saw fit to remove us and we have accepted that decision.”

Damn right you accepted the decision, you idiot.
