Up until now you'd notice that we never speak about the Ball family or the BBB.We support Black Owned but there's always unnecessary controversy around Lavar Ball.
Now you got our attention Mr. Ball. He wants to start a league for high school graduates to play ball and be compensated instead of going to college and being exploited for millions upon millions of dollars that they never see.
You have talented young black men who make millions for these schools meanwhile their families struggle in the hood while white coaches make 2 to 11 million dollars a year. Who's the reason for the school's revenue? Those young black men.
So now we have a Black man that wants to start a league that will compensate these young men $3,000 to $10,000 a month. We think this is an amazing concept and hope that he'd be able to pull it off.
There's an enormous amount of support from the black community because as black people we understand how it feels tobe exploited and work hard for other's to get all the benefits. It's the history of this country.
There's also a major backlash. Guess who the backlash comes from. You guessed it. White folk ain't feeling it and they are up in arms. This very idea threatens the institutions they've built off the backs of young black men.
We hope he can get what he needs done and some back up from our wealthier friends in the Black community to jump off the JBA..
