Asian NBA Star Snaps Back In The Best Way After…

If you’re not familiar with NBA star Jeremy Lin, then you probably don’t know about the “linsanity” he caused during his tenure with the NY Knicks.

The Asian-American NBA star gained notoriety because, aside from Yao Ming, there haven’t been many ethnically Asian players tearing it up on the court. He also got props from people on the web for shutting down Kim Kardashian when the reality TV star expressing interest in dating the athlete at the height of his “Linsanity.”

Lin is also known for being one of the most disproportionately abused players in the NBA, as pointed out by one fan who compiled a video showing clearly flagrant fouls not being called as such against Lin. The video is a bit tough to watch.

Lin’s response to the video was nothing but pure class, saying that tough fouls are a part of the game, although he appreciated the fan bringing up the issue and hoped that officials would review hard fouls with more consideration in the future.

Lin carried that same class over when fellow NBA star Kenyon Martin accused Lin of cultural appropriation and wanting to be black once the Asian-American athlete debuted his new dreads hairstyle on the court.

Lin responded to Martin’s statement with nothing but respect, and, whether intentional or not, delivered a solid burn to Kenyon Martin in the process, pointing out some of K-Mart’s tattoos that prove he’s seemingly guilty of a little bit of “cultural appropriation” as well.

People on Twitter loved Lin’s rejoinder.

They really loved Lin’s approach.

Others pointed out that Martin’s comments were pretty racist, which would’ve been evident in the tables were turned.

But winning arguments and dealing savage social media blows are apparently easy when you state the facts.

Which is exactly what people are saying Lin did. How do you feel he reacted?

Body Camera Footage Shows Los Angeles Police Officer Planting Bag Of Cocaine On A Suspect

 

In response to recent instances of police brutality, more and more people have been calling for police officers to wear body cameras.

Proponents argue that the cameras protect both the police and the people they serve, showing exactly what happened in any given interaction. They’re not perfect devices, and they aren’t useful in every situation, but it could be argued that it’s the best solution we have right now.

One case in Los Angeles is proving that body cam footage can be used to help those who are wrongly accused. When a man was stopped by police, the camera footage revealed the officer planting a bag of cocaine on the suspect, lying to his fellow officers at the scene about where it was found.

Ultimately, this is a betrayal of this man, the other officers, and the community. Learn more in the video below.

 

Fortunately, the LAPD has opened an investigation into this awful incident. Public outcry means that hopefully more body cameras will be put in place to protect innocent people.

But when it comes to showing off your pipes in the shower, this guy takes the cake…and he gets paid to do it. While helping install a new shower head as part of his job as a plumber, this man can’t help but belt it out like nobody’s watching.
