Default The Jimmy Butler Story

These types of pieces don't normally attract to me...

That said, he has one heck of a story. Hope he succeeds to stardom in the NBA.

I've seen/heard this story so many times it annoys me.

Poor Black kid taken in by White family and now hes an instant success with a great future ahead of him. All a bunch of BS with a hidden agenda that they're trying to make clear. That hidden agenda is that Black people should not raise their own children because they dont offer the love, nurturing, & teaching that White parents provide. Point Blank. Not sure how nobody sees it.

Apparently there is just something about the "Black method" of raising children that Whites believe is destructive to the childs well being and will make them trouble as an adult. Yet all of that can be corrected with just 1 White influence in your life pushing you along.

Etc.


This really sounds like a troll post

The kid's mom tossed him away, and another family helped him out. That's what actually happened.

The story doesn't pretend that the color of the skin is what saved the kid.

Edit: Of course I understand the points you are trying to make, and that sort of thing you are annoyed about may apply in some other situations, but it's a real reach to apply it here in this particular case.

Well these are the only stories we hear about. Thats the thing I'm getting across.

Whenever its a case like this it is always involving a Black kid who eventually becomes an athlete being taken in by a White family involved along the way with his athletic career.

If Jimmy went to live with his homeboy and their family along with the woman were Black nobody would even bat an eye at the story. Its only considered such a unique story that should be told when it involves people of different races.

Thats my whole point, I'll leave it alone.

Yup, I get where you're coming from. I know some stories are slanted and sometimes people have agendas or whatever. I'm not disregarding your angle in general.

But, I don't think it applies here. I think this story just is what it is.
