The "all blacks"?

Raiders? Steelers? John Cutler's? <-----Passenger 57 "Always bet on black"?

FYI in "Merka" they are not called "matches" but "games". 

I guess I don't get the reference "The All Blacks"?

All Blacks are a rugby team in, IIRC, New Zealand.

No way? HA HA HA , just looked it up.... That would not fly here.

I am sure the name history has nothing to do with racism, but still.

They need to have a rugby team "The All Whites"....

They're called the 'All Blacks' because of their uniforms - black jerseys, black shorts, black shoes.  Until now, no one has ever said or intimated that the team name is racist in any way.

Agreed. Americans might be the only ones who construe it otherwise.

Well, Indonesia have a team called 'The White Rhinos', and England have one called 'The Red and Whites'.  I'm sure someone could find something offensive here as well.

BORU, please, I wasn't accusing anyone of anything. Go read my post "I am sure the name history has nothing to do with race"...<---ME

I just found it funny word wise only.

Just like you can find humor in this...

Oh, I wasn't offended, I've just never heard anyone connect the team name with racism, however tangentially.  I was explaining, not criticizing.

Dude, sometimes humor is just that.

It was not implying racism on their part, but it is still true that a team name like that would not fly here in the states. You'd in reality if we had an NFL team named "The All Blacks" have a response from the white anxiety right saying "Why cant we have a team named "The All Whites".

I totally accept that that rugby team name has nothing to do with race.

Just like if I joked "I can find Fort McHenry on my GPS but not Fortitude."
