“The reality is, [Griner’s] over there because of a gender issue — pay inequity,” Nneka Ogwumike, the head of the WNBA players union, told "Good Morning America" in April.”

They never mention how their league makes no money when they bring this argument.
I could live comfortably off of her WNBA salary. The real issue is Capitalism and the constant pursuit of more more more. Why can she not be content with what she is making ? Sorry for the high babble. Wish I came across this thread sober :snoop:

I don’t understand the feminist obsession with the WNBA

They continue to bring up the pay gap between the NBA and WNBA and how unfair it is. They also know that the NBA gets millions more viewers and way more sponsorships and such because of it. It’s basic supply and demand

If all these feminists just supported the WNBA in droves, there’s no way it wouldn’t excel. Yet they don’t. Instead they focus their energy on trying to shame men into watching it and supporting it, instead of doing it themselves

I find it funny how the LMNOP community find any excuse to jump on black men for any-fukking-thing without any fukking hesitation, but they real quiet as fukk on this. And when they do talk, they always find some way to blame black men for this dumb bytch mistake.
The what?!

Kamala Harris, the literal VICE PRESIDENT of the United States, is a “black” woman and has so far FAILED in getting Griner released.


So the argument here that black women are all standing in universal solidarity over this situation is moot.

I feel like Griner was set up personally, but there’s literally nothing black women OR men can do. Only Biden can agree to whatever swap or demands the Russians want and so far this WHITE MAN and his “black” subordinate don’t see the value in acquiescing to those demands.

folk still on here running with the "If Trump was still president" babble even after he shytted on Griner.

:mjlol:

Well it's all a moot point because if Trump were President she wouldn't be a political pawn in the first place. Trump would have never stood against a Russian invasion of Ukraine so this level of tension wouldn't exist.

On the surface you'd wonder why Russia would even want Griner as a political bargaining chip as she's not really that famous. However, she does check a lot of boxes; she's a black, gay woman. Russia loves to exploit our weakness for divisive identity politics and figured sooner or later there'd be a big stink made about it and here we are.

If we want her back we're just going to have to take the L on this one. It happens. Can't win them all.
