Oklahoma’s only black family happy to see NBA in Oklahoma City

Imagine seeing others like you only on TV.  That is what one family in Oklahoma faced everyday until Seattle’s NBA franchise relocated to the Sooner State .  “I could not be happier”; said an almost breathless Laquita Millwood. “I like Debbie and Sonja at work and all but sometimes, man, it’s just hard to listen to their stories about their kids soccer games, Tupperware, and camping trips. 

Not all however, share her enthusiasm.  Oklahoma City Mayor, Mick Cornett expressed reserve in a recent city council meeting when he pointed out that 12 black men moving to town would cause a 400% increase in the black population and that the area may not be ready for such a dramatic shift in demographics.

    This is stupid. They are everywhere in OKC.

    Hmm….not sure I follow this artice. “Imagine seeing others like you only on tv”; does this statement imply that blacks rarely see other blacks in Oklahoma City? If so, that is absurd. And the headline is even more absurd. Why does race have to be a factor? I’m sure most Oklahomans (including myself, a black woman) is pleased to have a professional sports team moving to our city. City council meetings are public meetings and are transcribed. I would have to confirm that the mayor made such an idiotic comment before even entertaining such stupidity. Needless to say since its obvious, this article is just dumb!

    for all of you mental midgets out there:

    satire –

    1. the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.
    2. a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule.
    3. a literary genre comprising such compositions.

    For any Oklahoma Citians not getting the joke: you clearly did not pay attention to the family names!
