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?

Having had enough of using their own two feet for transportation, these two cheeky nuggets decided to hop aboard an unsuspecting motorcyclist’s bike to make up for lost time. The two hold on for dear life as the motorist continues to speed down the busy street.

Next time these two might want to consider calling an Uber.

Dad’s Lunchbox Creations Are Giving His Son A Reason To Smile

 

One of the greatest joys about bringing my own lunch to school was discovering all the surprise notes and little bits of motivation my mother would sneak in when I wasn’t looking.

This feeling of lunchtime loving is something artist and web designer Andre Guerra can relate to. He grew up receiving daily notes from his adoring mother and loved every minute of it. And when Guerra was old enough to send his own children off to kindergarten, he knew he wanted to continue the tradition for his son.

Guerra takes his lunchbox notes to a whole new level with some amazing artwork. Here are some of our favorites!

Trump Just Spread This Horrible Lie About the Last Few Presidents

 

ust a day after Donald Trump’s controversial blatantly false remarks that former President Barack Obama and the other presidents didn’t call the families of soldiers killed in action ignited the internet, the president is at it again. At a radio event at the White House, Trump doubled-down on his comments, telling Fox News Radio host Brian Killmeade, “I mean, you could ask General [John] Kelly did he get a call from Obama. You could ask other people. I don’t know what Obama’s policy was.”

By General John Kelly, Trump was referring to his beleaguered chief of staff, who tragically lost his son in 2010. First Lieutenant Robert Michael Kelly was leading a unit when he stepped on a concealed explosive device.

Kelly – *understandably* – didn’t comment on Trump’s allegations, and while former White House aides can’t remember Obama calling him, they do remember that the former president did something even better than call…
