Peak Stupid? NBA Teams Moving Away From Use of the Word "Owner" Because of... OMG... Because of Slavery Associations

Um, don't the team owners own the team? And by team, I mean "business."

They own the business, they own the franchise. The owners of any company own that company, but people are not so stupid to think that means they also "own" the employees -- the voluntary workers exchanging services for money -- of that company.

At least, before the Great Experiment in Viral Mass Retardation became pandemic, we didn't believe that.

Now, I guess, we do.

The NBA may be backing down from using the word "owner" due to racial insensitivity.

After Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green argued against using the term on LeBron James' HBO show "The Shop" late last year, the issue gained steam, per TMZ Sports, and at least two teams have already stopped using it.

"You shouldn't say owner," Green said, saying it should be changed to CEO, chairman or majority shareholder.

The Sixers have since changed the title of their owners to managing partners, and Steve Ballmer of the Clippers is listed as chairman on the team's website.

Our species is currently set on reversing evolution in order to become stupider and stupider as the generations descend.

Bold strategy. Let's see how that works out, Cotton.

I saw Devo on tv when I was a kid. I hated them. I thought the entire concept behind them was implausible, ugly, and anti-human -- the notion that human beings would willingly, even eagerly devolve themselves into stupider, more bestial forms.

Boy, was I fucking DOPE.

On this point, a short story published in the D&D gaming mag "The Dragon" continues to stick with me. Check out the story "The Doctor" at page 52 of this issue. Due to the cover being called "page 1" and inside cover ad "page 2," the story actually begins on page 54 of the pdf.

Again, I was unsettled by the ugly anti-human horror of that story.

But... it's right. It was always right.

Oh, and enjoy the Top Secret module and all the other stuff in that, too.
