Arthur Ashe award

This award is becoming a DISGRACE to the late great Jim Valvano. It's sad that ESPN has degraded this award and made it more about fame, media and controversy than true heroism and social change. There had to have been many more worthy recipients of this award, particularly Steve Gleason.

History will show that we began as the most blessed Nation in world history, and then proceeded to piss it away in order to be more "enlightened" and accepting of moral and spiritual depravity.

As a great Republican once said...

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."
