In Washington D.C.’s conservative-leaning newspaper, there’s an article on the front page about Dikembe Mutombo who is opening a huge new hospital in his native Congo. This shows a lot of leadership, more than frankly we tend to see from U.S.-born ball players. Mutombo was a pre-med major at Georgetown when he was recruited to play basketball, presumbly because he was tall at 7’2″. I wonder if we’ll be seeing more newspaper articles like this in conservative organs in the wake of the increasing profile of “40 Million Dollar Slaves.” I’m not surprised it made the news — just surprised it’s on the home page. See look, white owners and agents are not oppressing black players! See?
