An NBA Star’s Epic Response To Being Told That His Child Is ‘Too White’ To Be His

Memphis Grizzlies’ point guard Mike Conley has been in the NBA since 2007, and is one of the highest paid players in the league, earning over $26 million a year, according to Fox Sports. In addition, Conley’s five-year contract is worth $153 million, the largest in NBA history.

But, as with virtually everything, the Left and its social justice warriors decided to politicize his personal life by mocking a family photo of Conley, who is black, with his white wife and white child. Since Conley’s wife and child apparently committed the crime of looking different than he, going against all Leftist doctrine on race, a Twitter user, whose account is named “Turf Talk Boys,” accused Conley’s wife of cheating on him and asserted that the child isn’t actually his.

Turf Talk Boys tweeted:

The tweet was left alone for about two days, until Conley decided to respond in a way that put this Twitter user in his place:

While Conley’s response was amazing, the entire exchange is indicative of a much larger problem in society, brought on by the Left in order to cause American infighting. The Left, through its balkanizations based on race, gender, and sexual orientation, has caused de facto segregation to return, mimicking a period that inarguably most Americans look back on with disdain.

But Americans who are not on the far Left see Conley’s family in the opposite light, in that we believe that balkanizing and race-baiting only bring the country down and cause needless strife between its citizens. Instead of pitting us against each other, we should be striving for American unity under the founding of the country’s creed—that we are one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

In other words, we are all created equal.

Good for Mike Conley.
