You Can Take The 13%er Out Of The Ghetto…

….but you can’t take the ghetto out of the 13%er.

Six-time NBA All-Star Shawn Kemp, one of the most iconic players in Seattle Supersonics history, reportedly was arrested in Tacoma, Washington, on Wednesday and charged with a drive-by shooting.

The Tacoma police department tweeted that a 53-year-old man was “booked for Drive-By Shooting” after shots were fired following an altercation between occupants of two cars in a parking lot at 1.58pm Pacific time.

Pierce County inmate records show that Shawn Travis Kemp booked into jail on a drive-by shooting charge at 5.58pm….

….The local Fox affiliate KCPQ-TV, citing sources close to the former NBA star, reported that Kemp had property stolen from his car on Tuesday, tracked his iPhone to Tacoma on Wednesday, was fired upon when he approached a vehicle, then fired back in self-defense.

Shawn Kemp is a couple of years older than me, 53, and getting his ass arrested for a driveby shooting? It sounds like this should be a clear cut case of self-defense but he was arrested anyway, and for the cops in Washington state to arrest Kemp, it certainly suggests that there is a lot more to the story than we are being told.

Kemp lived the dream of virtually every black kid in America. Back in the day he was quite the star in the NBA, although even then you could see he was the harbinger of the downfall of the league. I usually point to Allen Iverson (“We talkin’ about practice”) as the poster child for the thugification of the NBA but Kemp was the canary in the coal mine. He was an amazing athlete and could dunk like a mother effer but his basketball skills compared to the actual great players were mediocre. Kemp was one of the earliest athletic players who relied on their athleticism rather than their skills. He could play pretty well on occasion but issues with coke and his weight kept him from ever being a truly great player.

He was also quite the charming person. According to Wikipedia he has 7 children from 6 different women and has been arrested post-NBA for a variety of drug and firearms related charges. Even as a yoof he was a piece of work.

During his senior year, Kemp signed a national letter-of-intent to play basketball at the University of Kentucky. Kemp failed to score the minimum of 700 on the Scholastic Aptitude Test, or SAT, and was forced to miss his freshman year under the NCAA’s Proposition 48 rules. Jim Hahn, Kemp’s high school coach, did not like the idea of Kemp being in Kentucky without playing basketball, saying “To have Shawn in a college environment without basketball, the one thing he loves, was, I felt, a big mistake. It even crossed my mind to advise him to go right into the NBA and the only thing that stopped me was the fact that so few players have done it.” Kemp decided to enroll at Kentucky. However, he left the team in November 1988 after he was accused of pawning two gold chains that had been reported stolen from his teammate Sean Sutton, the son of then Kentucky head coach Eddie Sutton. Sean Sutton did not press charges but Kemp transferred to Trinity Valley Community College in Texas.

You have to be a special sort of stupid to not score 700 on the SAT back in the day. I could get blind drunk right now and score 1000 on the SAT, even without having done any math classwork since the 90s. Then the genius steals from the son of the damn head coach and pawns the chains?

We are told over and over that a lack of wealth is all that is holding blacks back from achieving great things but how often do we see this same scenario, a black guy getting tens of millions and promptly blowing it while still being the same useless piece of shit he always was? Or even worse, someone like Len Bias who was the 2nd pick in the 1986 NBA draft after Brad Daugherty but killed himself snorting coke two days after the draft (his brother Jay Bias was shot to death in a drive-by in 1990. Nice family).

The problems in the black community are the result of biology not a lack of opportunity.

    True, oh so true. Then there is the case of the NFL Patriots player Aaron Hernandez who had it all and was a key player on a dynastic championship team. Seems that wasn’t enough for him, and he maintained the street gang lifestyle he grew up with right through his NFL time, which included ongoing petty racketeering along with his ego killings. These people are as dumb as a bag of rocks.

    Remember when Peyton Manning, John Elway and Joe Montana gang-banged through their NFL careers and then all got capped in a drug deal gone wrong?

    Yeah, me neither.

    If this oxygen thief Kemp had two gray cells to rub together, he’d be cooling his ghetto-ass heels in obscene luxury on his own Caribbean island, with a harem of White women attending to his every whim. As it is, he’ll be lucky to be named coach of the prison bassetball team and pull easy laundry duty for all of his celebrity. As for the rest of us, we should demand our oxygen back.

    Kemp is quite likely illiterate, or close enough, with the SAT below 700. They didn’t say how far below, but I’ll bet it wasn’t 699. His high school coach knew, said so in not so many words, that without the shooty hoops he didn’t have anything else. Kentucky was probably planning to keep him eligible to play regardless of whether or not he ever set foot in a classroom, that’s hardly unusual.

    The disgusting worship of niggers on sports teams is one of the many things I despise that’s still common among older whites, the boomers who waste their lives in front of television and so on.
    Anyone wearing a sport jersey just shows how he cucks to nonwhites, whatever they might say they support one of the many antiwhite institutions. I had coworker like that who was obsessed with an NFL team that was in his home city. The players themselves come from wherever and are just leeches so why give a fuck? It’s misplaced tribalism, that’s why. An approved way of showing an identity, one tied to praising nonwhites.
    It’s just one of many poisons.

      Lame attempt at dumping the blame on one generation dipshit!
      A simple perusal of photos of the fans attending the games, both in and out of the venues, shows most all are younger than 59, which would be the youngest age for a boomer.
      TV couch potatoes’ median age for watching nig dominated sports is below 59 as well.
      If boomers were the majority of niggerball worshippers pro sports would be out of business, as would college.
      It would be nice if you were correct, but you’re not. Try harder.

        Yes, the people who were raised to worship the tv and the niggers just like their parents and grandparents. But feel free to get all defensive whenever someone says “boomer”.

    I bring this up because it points out one more lovable trait of da Kangz. The recent murder of the “American” citizens in Northern Mexico points out that you can take the nig outta da jungle, but you can’t take the jungle outta da nig. When first reported, they didn’t have pictures of the “Americans”. Turns out dey waz all Kangz. With police records. This will now be memory holed. Why? I know the death of magic negroes is the most important thing in the world, but only if they are somehow killed by Whitey. Being killed by mestizos, meh…..I’m sure it was a drug deal gone bad, or they tried to short the Cartel some of their money. Nigs haven’t figured out dat nobody but Whitey gives a shit about them. Most Whiteys don’t either, but they are forced to hear about it by the aliens within.

      Just look too at the response from fags like Lindsey Graham. The border has been open for decades with how little real enforcement and deportations there has been, but a couple of dead porch monkeys? Got to declare war on the cartels!…and a convenient excuse to import all those poor “refugees” caused by this new war on cartels.
      The politicians are disgusting. The few token controlled opposition assholes still play along too with all this shit. “Whoops we just didn’t have enough votes also Romney votes against your interests again! Better just vote harder! They surely won’t fuck you over in 2024!”

      They were really really dumb if they thought they could get away with anything in Mexico, where blacks are despised, let alone try to cheat the Cartel, which is just suicide….

    Yes, Arthur, you can take the 13% out of the ghetto….but why would we want to?
    They will turn everyplace where there are more than a few of then into a ghetto.
    They are never really lifted up (see Forced busing- sorry Kamala) they always drag down. They are biologically, too far behind to be caught up, even by remedial means. The ones with physical talent may thrive for a while but the Kemp saga is oft repeated. I was at the 96 finals against the Bulls and Kemp already was showing signs of a weight problem. If it were just a decline in physical skills, which we all experience, it would be one thing. But they so often revert to ghetto/thug life once that decline occurs. Avoid them.

    In order to deal with any worthless ath-a-leets, we recommend the following remedy: .44 magnum, one dose directly between the eyes. That is all.

    This indispensable “historic” sports legend who won zero titles for the Sheattle Superchronics is a hero on par with Saint George Floyd.
    There will no blasphemy against St. Floyd of Fentanyl or this sportsball legend who won zero championships.
    Shawnnie will be preezy of the steezy one day!
    Yes we can.
