“Stealin’ Be Ok, No Big Deal” – LeVar Ball Showcases Mentality Behind His Son LiAngelo Ball Shoplifting in China…

UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were arrested in China for shoplifting while attending basketball tournament. UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said the players stole from three stores in China including sunglasses stolen by LiAngelo Ball from a Louis Vitton store. They were facing 10 years in prison. President Trump asked President Xi Jinping for leniency. The three players were released.

Thug life on display – After watching this bizarro interview with his father I can completely understand why LiAngelo Ball thought it would be perfectly okay to shoplift in China and live a life beyond the boundaries of ordinary moral behavior.  Somehow this guy thinks he’s making a point that will benefit his son – epic fail.

The father of the UCLA basketball player who was arrested in China for shoplifting sunglasses appears on CNN to explain why he feels President Trump did nothing to help his son get released from Chinese authorities.

    This man, LeVar Ball, and I use man loosely, is a disgrace to his race. He should go back under the rock he calls home. Maybe he should learn how to speak English as well. His inability to communicate the most simple though is alarming, and not only affects how he communicates with the people around him, but may in fact make it difficult to comprehend what he is doing himself. In some ways I feel sorry for this individual, but he is the product of the government’s education system, and the victim mentality of the Democratic party’s base. I know that this will not be a learning experience for him, because he was taught to reject anything whites do as evil. He is probably proud of his appearance on TV, but he should be ashamed of his performance.
    President Trump has every right to feel insulted by this blundering idiot, and we can only hope that his son appreciates what was done for him. Maybe it will even turn the son’s life around, so that he learns to respect the mores, and laws of civilized society. In Saudi Arabia, and some other Sharia Law governed countries, he would have lost his right hand. China, 5-10 years in prison, and others maybe similar sentences.

      The idea that outright property theft is no big deal is a huge problem. Theft is against one of the pivotal commandments in all, all religions, and is codified in the law in all civilized countries that have property ownership. Further, to do it in a foreign country is beyond dumb.

      “he is the product of the government’s education system”

      I agree with all of your comment, but I’m going to disagree with this one small part. This sentiment is widespread among people on the Right. While there are certainly elements on the Left that have filtered into our public schools (mostly from academia, which is almost entirely Leftist), the main, over-arching problem with our schools is culture.

      When speaking grammatically correct English, even making room for an appropriate amount of colloquialism and slang, is viewed as being “White,” and “White” is viewed as a horrible thing by the home and neighborhood culture (and it is today, even among some Whites), there is nothing a school is going to do to change that.

      Certainly a few independent-minded individuals will respond to a school’s efforts, and seeds may be planted in a few more, but the vast majority are inured to their situation, and, worse, will actively fight any change that threatens it.

      Nevertheless, you may still assign the blame to the government, as it is the government which has actively destroyed the nuclear family among Black Americans and which is actively working on doing the same for everyone else.

Our President had to use valuable political capital to get them out. Cuomo is not a patriot. He should have stand with the country and shut this fool up, not listen to his nonsense for 22 minutes.

    That piece of trash really think that because his kids made it alive out of the Hood, they are priceless and he is owned respect to make that happen.

    The victim mentality has been pushed so far that no responsibility is given to the participants ie. the residents of the Hood, for what the Hood is. Instead they are considered as heroes just for living there.

      I too feel sorry for the son, LiAngelo Ball. He was man enough to admit that he had done the crime; he expressed sorrow that he’d been so stupid, and apologized for his conduct; he thanked President Trump and the US Government for getting him out of jail and back home again.

      http://www.oregonlive.com/sports/index.ssf/2017/11/liangelo_ball_ucla_teammates_a_1.html

      Now he’s got the biggest burden of all: he has to apologize for his father’s being a fatheaded, bigoted fool, or become one himself. His father’s a man who cares more for badmouthing the President, who spent time and political capital to get his son out of the jam he got himself into, than he does about his son. “Hey, look at me, I’m trash-talking the President, ain’t I special and bada*s!”

      I couldn’t watch more than 2 1/2 minutes of that idiocy-fest on CNN. Don’t know which one is stupider or more irritating, Cuomo or Ball, but they’re evenly matched in blockheadedness!

      One thing that irritated me right at the start: “…after allegations of shoplifting.” When someone ADMITS they committed the crime, they are no longer “allegations.” But then, it’s CNN, which sets the standard for #FakeNews, so I shouldn’t be surprised at their phony allegations. I just shouldn’t watch that dog and pony show!

      I have a lot more respect for LiAngelo than I do for his father, but then his father earns no respect from me at all. What was it Mr. T used to say? “I pity da fool.”

  17. When blacks and / or liberals speak to me of “the man” holding them back or about how a black person is at a significant disadvantage in America I use the “Japanese example” in talking with them.

    I tell them to remember back to the end of WWII and how America hated the Japanese….as a race…..we called them all sorts of derogatory names, we took all of the American Japanese in the US and put them in internment camps, took away all of their businesses and possessions. To buy something from Japan meant it was a piece of crap not worth anything.
    We hated them, despised them….to marry one of them was unheard of….we had no qualms at all of dropping an atom bomb on them twice. We hated them.

    The Japanese as a whole didn’t wallow in self misery they got up, put their big boy britches on and worked hard ….. they didn’t stay on the government plantation that was created for them they worked until they succeeded and within a very short period of time they excelled….they became known for their hard work, their intelligence and to marry a Japanese person wasn’t taboo…..and all of this was accomplished within 30 years….
    Stop and think about that…by 1974 the Japanese industrial machine was at a par with ours.
    We were closing auto factories because we couldn’t compete with theirs….we were buying Japanese machinery because it was cheaper and more advanced than ours.

    Now compare that with the self-pitying Negroes that complain that someone in their family tree was a slave….a slave 200 to 300 years ago….or that they can’t get a job when they don’t have to compete in the same arena as others…..minority hiring practices give them the job over meritocracy based applicants.
    They want respect but do nothing to earn it.
    The “man” wasn’t holding them back….they were….they preferred to stay on welfare and live on the government plantation that was created for them by democrats.

    And don’t even think about using the argument that we rebuilt Japan because we’ve spent more trillions of $$$$ on wiping out poverty since the 60’s and actually have a larger percentage of people still in poverty.

    Just something to think about…my argument shuts them up every time.

Amazing ain’t it? The US taught the Japanese business culture and corporate deal making. Have you heard of ‘quality circles’ ‘Kai zen’ how about ‘JIT’? We taught that over there after we invented it for our own industrial machine.

    First of all, shoplifting is not a victimless crime. The store owner is the victim. I cannot believe Cuomo let that slide.

    And when the POS kept insisting that the three boys were in a hotel and not in jail, Cuomo really blew it by not informing him that his son was most certainly headed to a Chinese jail, had President Trump not talked to President Xi.

    That entire interview was such a sad spectacle, watching Cuomo attempt to garner some respect for our President while allowing himself to be totally disrespected in the process.

The rest is just hilarious, watching him and Cuomo talk past each other. Neither gets the other. It is two people who speak different languages trying to communicate. Funny to watch.

It is about “the culture of blackness” and all of those who buy into it – white, brown, yellow, black, etc. It is not the color of one skin that troubles me about someone, but the “the content of their character”. And character, at least in part, in my opinion, is a cultural phenomenon. But all cultures, wile self-authenticating, are not all equal. The majority of people in Baltimore honestly belief that the reason Baltimore is in such dire straits is because of “white racism.” That is, again, in my opinion, a result of culture.

          Btw, I live in Baltimore and have for the last 12 years. I am a retired college professor who taught the history of the civil rights movement, etc., in local colleges. I have seen this cultural phenomenon up close and personal. // Be well and live long and prosper. 🙂

            Speaking of Baltimore, there’s a documentary playing this month on HBO called Baltimore Rising. It follows activists and rioters – sorry, protestors – around as they express their anti-police rage in the aftermath of Freddy King and subsequent trials of police.

            One interesting contrast was that for all the anti-police bile expressed by one segment of the population at acquittals and mis-trials, there was joy and celebration expressed by another segment: mainly blacks on the police force who rejoiced at the failed trials. The police force appeared largely black (if not mainly) and the dichotomy appeared not so much black v white but more anti-police v police.

            Oh, and a keyword search for the title there at imdb also brings back a regular TV show with episodes, I didn’t read but suspect it’s a dramatic treatment where we can expect the usual Hollywood lecturing and finger-wagging about raycissssssts an’ shee-it. If anyone else wants to check that out, please report back.

          So, actually, your point is about culture, not so called ‘race’. Culture too is not at issue as it is with ethics. No divergence, and, unfortunately, culture can be contaminated with shortcomings in ethics, but that is not a given. I will point to our military which is in the millions of men and women.

            But central to the culture of blackness is the issue of race and racial identity. The culture is built around racial identity and the mythology, the story, that goes with that identity, in my opinion. You and I may not see race as all that important, but most blacks that I know, including my Ph.D. Major advisor, see/saw it as absolutely pivotal. It is that upon which almost all black identity is built and the story that goes with it. It is the core. Without racial identity, the culture of blackness makes no sense. Listen to Cornel West to see how important it is to a major Black intellectual. I disagree with him now but was selected to be one of his Ph.D students long ago before he left my doctoral program to lead the Princeton University Black Studies Program. Again, I say, it’s all about “race” and the mythology (story) which supports racial identity. (Sorry to go on so long. I am, for sure, a recovering intellectual and liberal. Btw, I hope I didn’t miss your point. If I did, my apologies.)

              My experience with Black Africans from the original Old Continent, sadly, ongoing, is that this mindset is endemic to the entire Race.

              It is the principle preoccupation. It’s as pervasive, and perverse, as what you observe from the streets of Baltimore to its ebony towers.

    Unfortunately LeVar is correct, at least when talking about the USA.

    THEFT is NOT a punished crime! (Unless you steal from a bank. 🙄 )

    I had two semi trucks and trailers stolen. They were found in the thieves front yards.

    In the first case the guy had a record as long as my arm. The prosecutor refused to even bother to bring it to court because the US UNIVERSAL code was TWO MONTHS PROBATION!!!** I ended up having to PAY $5,000 in storage fees to get my truck back when it was all over. 😈

    The second case was even worse. Since the truck and trailer were within a fenced and locked yard, the police REFUSED TO RECOVER IT. Not only that, I was told I would go to jail if I broke in and recovered it!

    The cop blew his top when I told him I should go into the auto theft business since it was less hazardous and had less jail time than farming. Thing is I was not kidding.

    From the text of HR 875, the Food Safety Modernization Bill. (As the Federal Reserve Act taught us, the original bill will be the eventual result no matter what the original ‘compromise’ was.)

    Civil Penalty
    (A) IN GENERAL- Any person that commits an act that violates the food safety law (including a regulation promulgated or order issued under the food safety law) may be assessed a civil penalty by the Administrator of not more than $1,000,000 for each such
    B) SEPARATE OFFENSE- Each act described in subparagraph (A) and each day during which that act continues shall be considered a separate offense.

    Criminal Sanctions-
    (1) OFFENSE RESULTING IN SERIOUS ILLNESS- Notwithstanding section 303(a) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 333(a)), if a violation of any provision of section 301 of such Act (21 U.S.C. 301) with respect to an adulterated or misbranded food results in serious illness, the person committing the violation shall be imprisoned for not more than 5 years, fined in accordance with title 18, United States Code, or both.”

    So yes, it is more risky to commit the act of ‘farming’ than to steal.
    ……….

    ** I looked up the penalties at the time and yes it was only 2 months probation… GRRrrr,

    Lavar Ball’s dialogue style was called, ‘jailhouse lawyer’ jive talk back in the 60’s. It is just a continuous avoiding of understanding, and constant verbal dodging of common meaning of words to frustrate and get the upper hand. It is not communication but chest bumping and bullying,

    and Ball dominated cuomo completely befuddled him, reminded me of when I worked in corrections, the prisons were full of this jive banter 24/7 and if you engaged it as normal talk, you play the game, starting with ‘what is yo name, tell me yo name, no I didn’t say yo slave name, not yo mama/s name, who is yo daddy, yadadada’.

    Old man bald Ball is schooled in the ghetto jive, has prison culture in his blood, and his boy and homies robbed THREE stores, had it on video, and the goods were found in their bags in the hotel

    just saying, bro –dindo nuffins at their finest.

    I don’t follow sports news, but I’ve been informed that this guy is a notorious big mouth fame w—e.
    He claimed to be able to beat Michael Jordan at one on one basketball.
    I feel sorry for any son of his, because his father’s negligence in raising him left him at risk outside the US.
    It really isn’t worth giving the dad any more attention that he’s already hogged for himself, though.
    Does this young man have a mother?
    Odd that she isn’t relieved to have her boy back.

    • Bendix – I posted this a page or so back on this thread. Mr. Ball is married to a beautiful, blonde White woman who recently had a massive stroke. She can’t talk now, but apparently can walk and move around on her own.

      Mr. B may deserve all the verbal abuse that has been thrown at him here, but the family has gone through some very tough times.

        Young couples would sign up for the cakewalk contest and winners, selected by the audience, would win a cash prize. I learned a lot about the Black Culture in the US from about 1880 to about 1930. They had some great times!
