Yep, This is Totally Not Racist

Basketball league for White Americans targets Augusta

A new professional basketball league boasting rosters made up exclusively of white Americans has its eyes set on Augusta, but the team isn’t receiving a warm welcome…
…”Only players that are natural born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league,” the statement said.

This league is looking to get started in June of this year.  To their credit, the response from people in Augusta is less than enthusiastic.  Naturally, the organizers of this league insist that there’s nothing racist about what they’re trying to do (some of their best friends are black) and that they totally aren’t racists.

On the plus side, I think I’ve found the perfect sponsor for the league.

and a great theme song

Found the link on Think Progress, looks like it also showed up on Deadspin yesterday.
