Jeff Jackson is a state senator from North Carolina, who is currently roasting his state’s dipshit governor for his hateful House Bill 2 that caused the NBA to up and move the 2017 NBA All-Star Game out of Charlotte. He has plenty of good and righteous points to make, like how much money McCory cost the state by going…
Update (5:33 p.m.): The NBA has officially relocated the 2017 NBA All-Star Game away from Charlotte, North Carolina, in response to an anti-LGBT bill the state passed in March. Here is the league’s statement:
The Nov. 12 game between Duke and Albany is off the schedule, thanks to New York’s policy banning certain types of official travel to North Carolina in the wake of that state’s anti-LGBT HB2 law.
North Carolina is set to host the 2017 NBA All-Star game, but in a meeting with reporters today, commissioner Adam Silver said that the game will have to be moved if recently enacted anti-LGBT laws are not changed.

Jonathan Ferrell, a former safety at Florida A&M, was shot and killed by North Carolina police early Saturday morning, apparently after seeking help after a car accident. Ferrell was unarmed, and the officer who fired the fatal shots has been charged with manslaughter.
Tell Me When It's Over is an interview series in which we ask former athletes about the moment they knew their playing days were over. Today: George Lynch, all-purpose star for the University of North Carolina.
As we wait for one ex-coach to possibly face off against his old team, we've got one waiting for us in this evening's second game. Roy Williams used to coach for Kansas before returning to his alma mater, North Carolina. In case you weren't sure, here's a little taste.
This week, the New York Times Magazine has the classic story about the quiet, anonymous Scottish-American high school sophomore girl who happens to be one of the best freestyle soccer players in the world. Stop me if you've heard this one before.
Yesterday, scrappy Presbyterian College from Clinton, South Carolina waddled into the Dean Dome to get predictably stomped by the Tar Heels. That still didn't stop coach Roy Williams from tossing a Blue Hose fan for...yelling at his team during free-throws.
In a move that leaves every person who has ever been to a Cracker Barrel aghast, two people made off with $158 in merchandise from the old country store yet left behind the wheels of cheese, butter churns, and large checker board pieces that you played on a quilt. Instead they filched North Carolina (mostly) and Duke …
