Which athletes do white supremacists like?


It's been a slow last couple of days on the "racist shit in sports" front, so, as they teach you in journalism school, when the story's not coming to you, you have to go to the story (note: I don't know if they actually teach you this in journalism school).

Stormfront.org is a message board (cesspool?) where white supremacists can go to discuss everything from the white race's genetic superiority to the history of the Third Reich to finding an adequately Aryan life partner. So naturally, there is a section of the forum dedicated to discussing sports. Jackpot. Perusing the sports section, I came across a thread entitled "Favorite WHITE athletes"--as if the "white" part really needed to be emphasized on a fucking white supremacist message board.

So which athletes do white supremacists like? Most of the responses will not surprise you at all. In fact, the list of people mentioned in the thread reads like a who's who of successful white sportsmen and women. Athletes with Germanic and Nordic-sounding names do appear to be represented disproportionately, however. This is a list of the more notable names that, based on a completely unscientific eyeballing, appear the most:


Dan Marino
Cal Ripken Jr.
Wes Welker
Bob Griese
Ty Cobb
Eli Manning
Peyton Manning
Jim Furyk
Phil Mickelson
Brett Favre
Jack Nicklaus
Dirk Nowitzki
Steve Nash
Babe Ruth
Tom Brady
Larry Bird
Joe Montana
Brooks Robinson
Roy Halladay (noooooooo Doc!)
Bob Cousy
Pete Maravich
Mickey Mantle
Wayne Gretzky
Mark McGwire
Max Schmeling
Lou Gehrig
Johnny Bench
Don Drysdale
Joe DiMaggio
Warren Spahn
Roger Clemens
Nolan Ryan
John Havlicek
Jerry West
Tim Tebow
Terry Bradshaw
Annika Sorenstam
John Daly
Ted Wlliams
Drew Brees
John Stockton
Rocky Marciano
Roger Federer
John Elway
John Lynch
Josh Hamilton
Michael Phelps
Ben Roethlisberger
Gordie Howe
Johnny Unitas
Brian Urlacher
The Klitschko brothers
Randy Couture
Brock Lesnar
Chuck Liddel

More fascinating (and hilarious) than the list itself are the justifications for some of the choices offered. 

Unsurprisingly, Larry Bird is a name that recurs frequently in the thread. As commenter "Spartan_WhiteKnight" (who I believe was Spike Lee's inspiration for the white guy in this scene) puts it:
The self-proclaimed 'Hick from French Lick' (Indiana), Larry Bird. In a game which negroes falsely claim as theirs, the Birdman was the greatest all-around player ever and the greatest forward without question. 
"proud2begoyim's" favorite boxer is likely someone you've never heard of, or maybe you have:
Boxing: Whoever is facing a negroid.
User "Ragnarokalypse" lists quarterback Steve Young as the favorite running back of all time, his rationalization:
His numbers are low since he was backing up Montana, but for years he was the best white running back in the NFL. Of course he had to sneak in through the QB position because white feature backs aren't allowed.
"Reaver34567" finds Lance Armstrong inspirational:
He represents the ability for Whites to overcome when faced with overwhelming odds.
A true triumph of the will, amirite?

"Tamm" takes exception to the inclusion of Johnny Damon and swimmer Dara Torres in other commenters' lists. His response is perhaps one of the most amusing in the thread: 
Johnny Damon is part Vietnamese--he's not white. Neither is Dara Torres (Jew).

There are many fine white athletes--although networks like ESPN fall over backwards for n******.

Michael Phelps is awesome.

Tim Tebow from UF is awesome, too, but not many whites left on the Gators. Urban Meyer is like most coaches in the country. So lustful for wins and the fame/fortune it can bring, they load their teams with scholarship black athletes.
"Adam79" has an interesting theory to explain the presence of blacks at the highest levels of golf and tennis:
9.Jack Nicholaus-there are several examples of great golfers.a sport that requires a great deal of intelligence,self-control & concentration.no wonder whites have excelled for so long at this sport. {tiger woods is almost like a scientific expirement of his father in order to finally get into a field that has been so long dominated by whites-somehow this just doesnt impress me}
10.Pete Sampras & Roger Federer-somewhat similair to golf,whites have also tradionally dominated this field,again unless some black father-like that of the Williams sisters-has a secret,personal vendetta against the white race's dominance.
So yes, some or many of your favorite athletes are also the favorite athletes of proud white supremacists. But rest assured, ye guilty liberals, that these athletes are your favorites for VERY different reasons than they are their favorites.

One thing I was a bit disappointed to discover was that no one in the thread named card carrying Hitler Youth member David Eckstein as a favorite.



Oh well.

  1. I can't believe the white supremacists have a community forum. I didn't know there were enough literate racists to populate such a site. I had to check it out for myself, and I still am not quite sure if I believe what I saw. Good work guys.

  2. Do white supremacists know the greatest hitter of all time is half Mexican? Oh, I think I just ruined it for them.
