'cause you're like we never liked each other as an and the reason why i'm inclined to agree with you about her is because i don't know how you dislike a five year old child and that's picking up all the things that i'm not even putting down correctly is is she very much was like opposed to the idea of my existence. Because i was my you know from various relationship and so any adult that enters a situation with a grown man. Who has a kid is like. I don't like that kid because it reminds me they used to have sex with the different lady fucking weirdo ravioli.

"We do something different. Try anything pause. Was sam j. Hbo like referencing that. But it's like there's like besides besides sam show like how like there's a few others i think did he did a monologue. That was just straight up. Stand up and i thought that was bad. That was pretty cool. I do remember pete's show at the time being a version of groundbreaking when it it sort of launched. I think you know the further we get from these things the more they start to just look like little dots but at the it was like yo his shits is different is kind of weird in like up close in a way that other late night shows weren't and now you know it's yeah we're with with pause. I think that was our main goal was like. I don't think she's gonna look good behind a desk. So let's figure out a way to make it feel fun. Kurt thrive in. It really felt like we were crashing. A comedian party which was right. Like all those interstitial with them. And i'm like there's bestselling samsung what you're pointing out like. Wait who's oh. Oh oh yeah. I've seen that person on the lineup. Okay okay like newer new york comedians. That somebody's these girls which i use for all genders young girls. This raise these young girls out here. Grl's g. u. r. url s. Exactly yeah so wait okay. So did you have serious relationships before nikki. Like like when you think like serious like did you have any or yeah. I think i in a very unfortunate Sense i think. I am a serial monogamist where like i tend to find myself in longer versions of relationships and there was a period. I think you know a few years. Before where i was just out around town dogging out but for the most part i've like done a year year and a half two years with people for over and over again don't always great. It is great. Not that's good. Were you in them just to be in those relationships or like were you. Were you committed in that. I guess i guess my question is were you afraid to be alone. Did you just need someone to keep the bed sheets. Warm i think the answer that i probably would have given then is no i think. In retrospect i think there's probably a level of truth to that. I don't think that i was like dino lead like sitting at home. When i have to have somebody right. That's i don't think that's my instinct. I'm pretty good at being alone. But i do also think that i was thinking about my life and and what i wanted to be in represent and all these other things in a relationship at times felt like it would service that feeling and that's not necessarily why you should like you said did andy. It's you sort of. Just meet a person. you're like. Oh chemistry chemistry. Not just i can kick it with you for a while. And there's a big difference and it takes us a minute as adults to just figure out what that difference is. Yeah like it's definitely experience thing it's not like there's like a first of all. There's no class at school where it's like. Hey this is this is what's gonna feel here at love. Doubts on my teachers knew that feeling ever but allowed drag them. No i think that's one hundred percent true and it's why don't trust people like trusses waited worth. I have trouble with people like yeah. I met my high school sweetheart and we just stayed together forever and never had any downs like none. You ain't never go like vulgar. Might not even be it for for anybody much less me. I know i know it's funny though. I believe in like checking in on yourself in relationships in a negative way. But i'm very much like to me relationship something you have to choose every day and every now and then i'm just like am. I still happy aseel. Happy like just like myself. There's sometimes you'll be like i still love you. I do and that was a good check in. She did he checked in and she was like status. Update we're doing fine. I also to one of my big fears. Because i watched too much true crab not necessarily he will murder me but the sudden change in a lover shrinking that you are okay and then having someone come to you and be like actually i would like to kill you for the shirts and like i'm always telling andy where i'm like if you ever feel like you don't wanna be with me like my never. Don't cheat on me leave me. Please leave me please. Don't you dare go try to have a side piece. You talk about germs. Like could you please like lean gave me you have to. Yeah it's it's it's tough i think I always think about in. This is weird. But i always think about Tim robbins and susan sarandon right like they were together like twenty years at some point. They were like now. We can't keep doing this. You you and i are not meant to be together and i know at the time and this is maybe the internet being whatever the fuck the internet is everybody was like. This is terrible. If they can't make it what's going to happen to me and blah blah bias. Like you'll but they did it. They beat the they did the thing they kept checking in much. In the way you're saying and at some point the status wasn't coming back fine or good or any of those things was like. Yeah we gotta move on and twenty years is a full relationship you beyond the game you you made it to the end and maybe we just need to be more okay with the possibility that like relationships have a lifespan. They have a limit that they can go. And sometimes that's forever. And i hope it is in in my case in your cases but then maybe it's not in. That's okay to your enemy. This is until the grave. That's not fair that's fair and if you hurt. Her faster was there. Was there one of those guys. I've never been that. Investment like celebrity couples Did when when. Danny devito and carla rhea perlman when deputy and re perlman separated. I think they might be back together but when they separate that there was a little bit of like is are any of these things permanent do do either. You have one of those trying to think i can't. I don't have a person. That's like conscious. A relationship. That i i will say though as i get more and more in this business and i think about relationships like i always i never liked was somebody is like married or in a relationship and then they like kind of get famous and then they get like hot young thing regardless of gender race. Not say it's like little he's like. Oh i see you basically leveled up your basically like abbie new partner now and that really upsets me even know these people just like what grade is is a personal attack whether you intended there. Yeah i get that feeling. I feel like the person when i tend to go with the answer. That pops in my head i even. If it's not the correct answer the when you ask the question the first thing that popped in my head was robert deniro in his wife his life. I know grace hightower. I didn't know her name but it was just like that. Cool black lady. A robert deniro together. That's a cool story. And then you find out that like oh shit. Robert has moved on. Oh bobby's ed you know. Now he's out on the town in his seventy year old dixon but it's also like things like grace was also gorgeous flawless..

"Who how will i go. None of that should just like yo. She's fun this is a great hang. And i think i was in a place in my life. Which i'm i'm a firm believer that this is more of the difference maker than anything. Is that if you are in a place in your life where you are willing to try to make a relationship happen adler much more likely to actually be able to make something happen. As opposed this nebulous place. Of like if i meet the right one maybe i'll do. It counted thing it was like nah. I'm i'm down to get a baby boo so she seemed cool. Let's see if this is it that makes sense. I do a lot of it almost half the battle is just the person wanting to be in the relationship and then if you just happen to walk by the right time you could be the one you in. That makes feel real. Pretty when i tell her that. All buddy general like with guys. Like i like andy like humor in ready to have a relationship where you were i wor- i work very like i were indeed. Well yeah 'cause. I had my shit not figure it out but i was on the path to like being happy and so just being on that path in the first place like open me up to be happy and other areas host to just like when i was like even in college when i thought well yeah i didn't i didn't i was compromised. I was constantly compromising right. With what i wanted to do. I say this a lot but make sure but like i was compromising between what i really want to do which was again. I couldn't even admit it to myself but like comedy in some way and what my parents wanted me to do. Which was lawyer doctor right. And i constantly like finding something in between those two things like philosophy professor that's the white inbetween read. It was high professor but silly. I did jokes. Yeah so so then do you in the in the case of the relationship where you then like were you acknowledging that with with naomi with with everyone around you or was this just a private consenting in your head where you're like now i'm ready to be a big boy and do the i wasn't conscious. I mean it wasn't like to therapy and could actually like articulate these things that i could go back and be like oh right okay so the fact that i could you know with women before i would always wait to it was safe to. I knew they liked me to like make a move and what they owe me. I was the first time where i was like. Oh no i like her. I'm gonna make the first. I'm gonna like ask her out. Even if had a weird way that like asked her out facebook but like it was a long time ago. Man doesn't nine babies. You did you poker did you hit. It was so funny though. Because like we but i will say this right now when you say that about being who you wanted to be kind of being you know we met right so we met at a time when you were like. I'm a comedian. Now and oh look. I'm meeting a girl in the comedy space. It's like okay. this is it. You know what i mean like. It was kind of in line with the community. You wanted to be a part of the part that career you wanted to pursue kind of worked in that way. I mean now langston chemistry and there was a thing where i'm like you listen to the commissioner like zipping your zaps but like you had like this fun night and i'm sure that was also part of that kind of like. Oh this is fun. We we have chemistry and you until you have chemistry with someone. You don't really realize how rare it is Oh shit all those other relations no offense to my other girlfriends but like i liked them but right. No i think that's one hundred percent. Sure i think that like you. And that's part of why these questions are so often difficult to answer is like i don't know i just didn't like them other ladies i. I don't have like a precise way of articulating. What the differences. But you know. I've spent time with a lot of great people who truly the vibe wasn't there and that's not a reflection of them being a bad people but they're probably not right or meet writing right but now you what i what i always love about your relationship what i find so interesting is like and i remember the very first time i saw. You do. stand up some brickland bar hunting. We were in the back of someplace real dinging but at the time. And you were. You were a substitute like you might have been visiting even new york at the time and you didn't live there but you're you're talking about being a substitute teacher. I used to be a full time teacher. Okay then okay. I was say substitute. And i wish i would have been able to sustain a life on doing sub word. That would solve so many of my problems but now i was a fulltime teacher. And that's probably true when we met i probably. I may not have been a fulltime teacher anymore. If i was visiting new york i was because i was living in boston. And at the time If i was like In new york. I was working more like A test. I was teaching kaplan class. Oh yes fifty. Sat prep in jeddah. I did that. Yeah i did. Sat's injuries yeah okay. Gre seems to because you're working with like adults than like reasonable human beings. Sat feels a little more depending on where they place you at least can be a real pain in the ass. It was just rough. Because like i also like i was trying to tell the students that like. I'm sorry that you have to take these tests. That they are not like i would. I would tell them the truth. These are standardized for like white upper middle class. People and i like you should not feel bad if you're not getting it i'm going to try to teach you some of the stuff bipolar. Don't beat yourself up because the ida very different instinct. I get your black ass in their goddamn test. No they did not. I worked cool teacher. I feel like you would at least a time when you were like teaching. What grade did you teach. I taught full-time ninth eleventh and twelfth grade english okay except for those. Those pests on tenth graders. I taught everybody. Were you cool. The kids like you. They did like me. I i think the thing you find out is you think you're cool and they kind of think you're cool but that's very temporary that at the point that you do something that they don't like you ain't a cool teacher anymore. You just ma fargo. They're talking shit about in the hallway all the cool teacher because they're younger than everybody else. Like twenty four. When i got my first teaching job and so i was younger and i looked more their age and i knew their references. We listen to the same music and shit like there was a bond in that sense. But then you assign a homework assignment and they don't do it and you give them my f- in their life that any really ain't cool leaves the naslund's like nah. I'm just. I'm just trying to make it through this dog not gonna let some sixteen year old. Who doesn't like reading ruin my life but we listen to kid sister. Yes like there's no bond here. We just happened to old enough. We might be in the same club but you're not so shut up stupid but when did you always know you wanted to be a comedian actor because you are married to a professional woman. She's a professional woman out here working. You know and. I think you've done well for yourself. Your book busy blessed but obviously it's a journey like was that always the intent when y'all got together were you like. Hey this is it. I'm going to need you to subsidize me for a little bit i. I had the good fortune of meeting her. After i had already kind of started doing stuff like i. I didn't meet nikki Broke met her sort of on the come up. I was still teaching the kaplan classes. But like i was like a few months out from the insecure pilot. Lifetime then you know adam devine in fucking The oscars like there were a few things that sort of followed that immediately affirmed the argument. I was making that..
Why Culturally Relevant Teaching Is Important
"To this episode. Let's dive right into it. So one of the think about culturally responsive teaching. I define. It is being attuned and acknowledging students diverse backgrounds. Educating them with the lens that there heritage background and cultural assets are advantages and can enhance their education and having a worked in urban schools. I see that students already possess a genius within them because of their diverse backgrounds and because of the cultural assets that they bring to the classroom and it is up to me to us as the teacher or teachers to facilitate a nurture this genius within the children that we teach and i was made aware of this time and time again in my teaching i saw a second grade poetry lesson using a poem by langston us and the students were able to dissect and find hidden meaning within this boy without a lot of prompting. It'd be difficult for the students to have this kind of insight to have this kind of critical thinking but they were able to dissect it to break it down honest and understand it without me.

Her head is just sitting in the bed. makes it up like what. Why did he pick it up. Like didn't he think it was connected to her body and he was going to like hold her like what is happening. He thought he was going to kiss her. And i in the world that we have made it like up to kiss pigs there. He's like No one's scores out everywhere he's covered in blood and then kyle who's trying to become like the head of the secret service. Guess he comes in. He's like i. I don't clean this up. What did you take. And he's like some molly and then he throws away this huge plate of cocaine. And i guess molly as like you gotta save that for another time and a president is walking like his because he picked up a dead woman's head and then they toss her head in this laundry basket. And i was like tyler you what but see. This is a pisses me off. Because i knew that happened in the oval from your stories and then i was excited for this movie on. This movie does not deliver in any of those ways. Which we we've been getting used to. How crazy all of these are shows so well before we get into it. So medina's witness protection is available on. Hbo max you can record it on filo and you can also watch it for a fee on apple tv. Google pay and voodoo spoil. It so watch it. I if you care about that But i think we were both disappointed by madonna's reduction and we've been we've been loving every so because i want to hear what he thinks about this i we we have been so into the season so far and i was like. I was feeling pretty excited to watch. My friend even was like. Oh that's a good one. And i don't know how i feel. That's big dipper saying he likes this one. We can't trust dipper saying that. This is good too. I truly now. I'm questioning anytime. he said. Anything has been good well. His taste is questionable. Which i would love to discuss with him at a further point we he. He likes to watch bad stuff. You so i mean he's he fits right in but let's bring our guest out. I want to hear it. Our guests things about this show were so excited. It's langston kerman. Langston median writer. Actors was appeared on series including insecure and south side. He currently hosts the podcasts. My mama told me for big money players network. I heart radio so welcome langston An exciting yes langston. Thank you so much for being here. Let's get into it. Have you watched any tyler. Perry before i head and i actually vowed never to do it again. You all forced me to know so far is in force me to ask. I had made a firm stance in my life. That like. I'm gonna get that. Toxic man out of here is our like nope. You're going to do it for a bit long running doing over the course of a season. So would you seen before. If you remember i believe my my last straw was daddy's little girls. I finally put my foot down hours like if this is the best he can do. I'm out. yeah we like that one. That was going to say. I think it's his most. I think at least critically acclaimed film is the one that i think stands stands on the firmest ground is far as being considered a film industry. That is true. I think that's true. But i but i also think that movie had like a lot of weird. There's always a surprise raped or that wasn't a radio. You know accusation like that one was our first you dip into that sort of thing dramatic. No no ha ha funny. It's not really yourself the top to herself in a very serious thank top. That's the shift that tyler perry sort of creates his his union. So had you seen this witness protection movie. Before i had not i i was not going to see it. I in fact was was devastated to find out how many people consented to be a part of this project. What are your initial thoughts on witness protection. Well i think I think there's a part of me that wants to believe he tried his best. And then i know that's not true. You know what i mean like. I didn't put his best foot forward. I i was excited. That romeo miller is finally getting his his just do it was heartbreaking to see what would point eugene levy head sort of sunk to in his career. That was so confusing to me. Because i thought eugene levy would definitely elevate this movie whatever it was gonna be. I was like it'll be really funny when he's doing his thing him interacting with medina. I thought it'd be funny. We tend to like media show. But but i was like i. He didn't even get a chance even in the bloopers i was like. There's not enough silliness happening. There's there's no it isn't like the freedom to play really felt like you know one thing we've learned by doing the show. Is that like tyler. Perry works extremely fast. Fooding full movies in eight days like aps made a full series of television which is insane full movie in eight days. You all have been in plenty of films you know. That films are are months months at a time. It is shooting entire film..

And the hands. Berries were forced out of their home eventually the. Us supreme court overruled this ruling on a technicality. Thirty blocks subsequently opened up to black families across the south side while this ruling and the hands fight did not outlaw restrictive covenants. It did signal. The beginning of the end for the practice lorraine attended. Chicago's englewood high school where she became interested in theatre. She initially attended the university of wisconsin.

One farmer claimed to have lost a foot and was awarded nearly a million dollars even though there was evidence that suggested reputation. So come on now that foot that was worth it. Yeah. I think it's like what kind of policy you could afford to take out 'cause he's gotTa, take the policy on pay on it for a little bit. So the farmer probably has some coin. It was almost impossible to convict the scammers fraud because it was so difficult to convince the jury members that people would willingly self amputate the scam ended in the late nineteen sixties because premium rates became too high and insurance. Businesses in the Florida panhandle all together. They're just like we're not even going to ensure any of you because we know what's a damn.

Be there as sort of A temple to their success and an assemble if we if they read the Fan Mail. What would block the pathway will would would then you just walked to the do your show right there'd be no shrine and that's mean that's the thing for the other people listening all the shows that you like send Fan Mail to you like they don't they don't open it or like look at it like never touched it. Look at it and we write their responses Oh. Sean and I do yeah. Can you can you give an example of just just one of the the recent letters you Robak? I have one to. Help I know you don't. Go ahead. Yeah. Let's hear Kevin's. Hey. Timmy. Sorry. For the delay, the live tour we did took forever. Sound good dude. Thanks for the Amazon Gift Cards. I. I. Don't know that. By the way. Like sometimes it is gift cards, but usually they just send money so to like. Like a like a Paul Scheer like the other big shows on the network like they are just getting sent cash straight cash. Cashier's checks and why again ju I'm new to this. So I, I'm just trying to gather as much information as I can just trying to soak up from Uganda right. Why do they not want the cash? Why not open this males? Sorry. Speaking of Soak Up Kevin need to change your towel. Do any of you guys have bounce roles? No I not me. So so what do you think a bouncer all as like I think originally now. He's rony paper towels and this case it is a bounce. So there's bounty and then he said Bouncy but now it is a bounce roll, which is a role of bounce fabric softener. Ben Is as big as a roll of paper towels. So I want my paper towel smelling good. That's so to answer your question and why don't they accept this cash take? It actually would cost Paul Scheer more to spend the time it would take to open an envelope. And to deposit the cash. Than it would to act like to do the work and to make that much more money by speaking into a microphone. Wow capitalism is complicated but I I hear you it's it's a it's a crazy dance. The Spike has world. It's actually very simple capitalism and What it says is the cream rises to the top I gotcha and. Case of Kevin. Where it's our. Share. It soaks through to the bottom, but he but I understand you're just like. Yeah, it is Cool what I like is just like. That it kicks has. I like that it's fair so. So in the interest of fairness, I would love to give you an opportunity. Because we are close to wrapping up to talk about like what your classes might entail, how you're going to kind of change the curriculum to make it your own look what's your syllabus? Because you are now the teacher you have finished university you're the teacher now okay. Well, and I would say and just like drought what Sean was saying before. So he was being a little funny when he said that it's fair. For someone like Paul Scheer who is An incredibly kind person and also makes a show about something that people really want to hear. And is like consistently very entertaining and like he gets good gas puts a lot of time into it for that to be. Also the most successful show on the network just goes to show you like there's no predicting what will work shore it is really In any direction now say you can't predict the marketplace like it's GonNa take these wildlife turns whereas like for instance, there was a show where it was like. To full blown unknowns. Just basically being mean. And like. Mean in a way where like they're really. Happy about it. Rod No one else's. And then. And then also. Putting all these barriers around the meanness where it's like so specific that there's no way to even access it and feel like you're. Participating with them not that you would want to because it appears. Kind of unpleasant and ghoulish But that might did yeah. Yeah, you couldn't. That sounds like right like that's essentially created a pretty exclusive club right there. Must be the most popular thing that's been made. And something like that actually might not work. so that's crazy this. You know that's how kind of random this whole processes. So that's the lesson one day to a hundred and one you know that's that's the big one. So now you are professor congratulations of the school. And So what were you asking him Sean about being professor well, just like what's The you know? Obviously, we want you to make it your own just like the ad reads What are you going to do with the curriculum? How would you kind of approach it pretend? I'm a student you know what's my class now? Shore okay. Well, we're I obviously want to utilize some of the the learnings that I've gathered. From you but I also I gotta make it my own. I've got to make it something new in one of the things that I think is important for podcasting is. Is We. We've covered ad breaks we up.

The Harlem Globetrotters
"The Savoie ballroom was a jewel of jazz age. Chicago theatre opened in the nineteen twenties just before people in the United States were hit by the Great Depression which left many Americans poor and hungry throughout the difficult time. The Savoie was a place to find joy on the south side of Chicago. The building was regularly filled with residents from the largely African American neighborhood. Who gathered to dance to some of the biggest stars of the day count basie Duke Ellington Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong? Were just a few of the people who banged out. Tunes as people jibed across the giant DANCEFLOOR. Dancefloor was so big that it actually doubled as a basketball court for the Savoy. Big Five in the late. Nineteen twenty s the five-man team hosted games to fill the slow nights in the ballroom. A young man in cab. Calloway would sometimes seeing during halftime but back then basketball wasn't very popular people cared about contests like horse racing and boxing baseball. Not The five on five game that depended on getting a ball through a hoop. It was a long way from the sport. We know much slower and much lower scoring than today. This team from Chicago would eventually work to change that. But they're Savoie audience could never have guessed how at some point. There was a dispute among the players of the Savoie five and they broke up. Three of them led by Tommy. Brooklyn's start a new team and rename themselves. The globetrotters it was an era of barnstorming. And when not at the Savoy they set out from Chicago to tour the Mid West region of America there were no organized leagues of teams and players in the Nineteen Twenties and thirties. Instead semi professional teams would travel from town to town and earn money playing teams from whatever town they were in sometimes. Businesses might have a team of employees so a barnstorming team like the globetrotters might play against some guys who had spent the whole day assembling cars canning vegetables or even driving taxi caps. Other Times barnstorming might play a team made up of members of a religious group. The House of David. Those guys never shaved so they played basketball with beards down to their bellies. Making James Harden's beard look like a five o'clock shadow soon. A young Jewish immigrant named Abe Sapper. Steam entered the picture with the globetrotters. Abe was a terrible basketball player but his other skills were valuable. He knew a lot of people who did bookings and many of these towns and more importantly he had a car these five teammates and their manager. Abe would pile into his model t like sardines attend camp and hit those cold slick winter roads. It was the nineteen twenties and they understood that random people in random midwest towns might be surprised to find that all five members of the team coming to play their local guys were African Americans. There were very few professional sports comprised of African Americans at this point so they decided to alter their name to help people know what to expect at the time. The most notable and best all black basketball team was known as the Harlem rent which was short for the Harlem Renaissance in the Nineteen Twenties and early thirties. The New York neighborhood of Harlem was an epicenter of black culture and it was a time referred to as the Harlem Renaissance. People knew about these incredible artists and musicians. Who lived there along with the writers like Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston so the globetrotters who were very much from Chicago? Ask themselves how do we make ourselves sound dignified worldly and clearly a team of African Americans the Harlem Globetrotters? Will it matter that? We're not from Harlem that we've never tried it around the globe new super nope cool. Let's pile into a small unheeded car and go beat some people in basketball and they did just that it was remarkable. How good they are. They beat nearly every team from Wisconsin. Illinois Iowa anywhere else they went then they pile back into the car and head on down the road to the next game throughout the nineteen thirties. The team built up quite a reputation. They might have been the best basketball team in the world. No one agrees on how the famous tricks came into the game. A popular explanation is that they'd slip into the fun and flashy dribbles and drives after they safely put plenty of points on the board against their opponent. This did several things one it entertain the audience. Once the actual threat of competition was gone. No one wants to watch a blowout so a fun. Show of tricks kept the locals entertained but also no one wants to watch their local fellas get trounced a group from the city coming in and wiping the home team can really anger a local audience and the Harlem globetrotters new. This trick plays would thrill any crowd and win them over. The focus slowly became not about the final score but about how much fun it was to watch these incredible athletes and their astonishing an often humorous approach to the game. I we win. And then we cloud Abe Saperstein once said now most people agree that the real clowning didn't start until a man named goose. Tatum joined the team. Goose was an incredible athlete. Who could put the basket ball through the hoop with ease? But he also had a keen eye for comedy he found inspiration and funny movies and carefully watched the acts of clowns and other entertainers his favorite gags would show up on the basketball court. Sometimes goose would tiptoe over and pretend to spy on the opposing team's huddle all while making sure the audience in on the joke other times he'd hand the refs at trick ball after a timeout upon dribbling the ball. The referee grow angry because the ball never bounced back up. It just plopped devoid of air on the ground. Sometimes goose would disappear from the court altogether while the game continued only to be found in the audience eating popcorn. He even had a bit where he would pretend to be knocked unconscious on the court. The refs in his teammates would try everything to wake him up. But no amount of shaking or poking prodding would open his eyes. It was only the smell of his own Stinky Shoe. That would get him back up on his feet again. Much to the disgust delight of the audience in Nineteen forty-eight Abe Sapper Stein was with a friend who just so happened to own a basketball team called the Minnesota Lakers. The Lakers were the best team in the brand new professional basketball league which would soon become known as the NBA. The League did not allow black players on any of their teams regardless of League affiliation and regardless of the color of the player skin each man believed his team was the best in the world. They'd never meet in a league as it was so the natural solution was to stage an exhibition game between the Lakers and the globetrotters. It didn't seem so to the men at the time but game between an all white. Nba team and an all. Black semi pro team would prove monumental. Eighteen thousand people came out to watch which was easily twice. As many people as most professional basketball games would attract the time. And despite the fact that the Lakers star center who stood six speed and ten inches tall was seven inches taller than anyone else. On the court. The globetrotters one on a last second shot. It was a powerful moment. The next season those Lakers would go on to win the National Championship. But when they played the Harlem globetrotters a second time for a second exhibition between the two teams. The globetrotters came out on top yet again. The following year the NBA ended segregation and three of those same Laker Whooping Harlem globetrotters Chuck Cooper Nat Clifton and hang designee. Became three of the I four African Americans to join the League and play professional basketball. This was nineteen fifty three years. After Jackie Robinson had broken the color barrier in baseball the globetrotters still continue their entertaining shows today. Keeping the spirit of barnstorming alive. They get a lot of credit for how they support communities and bring joy to so many and educate kids about health. But it's easy to forget about how important they were in integrating professional basketball. They now tour and play with just one team often known as the Washington generals according to most sources the globetrotters have beaten the generals over sixteen thousand times. How many times have they lost though? That question is harder to answer. But it's just a few. The most recent globetrotter loss was way back in one thousand nine hundred seventy one when both teams lost track of the score when clock expired. The generals were ahead. That was not supposed to happen. And people expected the GLOBETROTTERS TO WIN. And it's usually agreed that they will today. It's all about the show the fun and the love of basketball not the competition. This is what made that loss. So shocking reports from nine hundred. Seventy one SE. The stands were filled with silent shocked faces and even a few crying children. Luckily it's been smiles for all since then
