Barclays will spend 2.5 million enhancing basketball courts all over Brooklyn? Is that supposed to make up for slavery? Ok, so give those negros a new bball court and they won't know the difference, right? Give me a break, If mr.jigga knows of this will he disapprove? That money is so intoxicating for those celebs who knows if he will even acknowledge this. What an insult...until next time world...BLONDEE

If anything I think the fact that they went from slavery, to making basketball courts is a PLUS.......if they were a racist bank x amount of yeras ago, it looks to me as though they have somehow EVOLVED since then......

This whole boycott companies invloved with the slave trade thing is rather sickening. Why do people who feel this way remain in the United States? This country was involved in the slave trade so a boycott would mean GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!

That's so typical and RACIST of the media. Trying real hard to bring down a talented and successful African American. It is impossible for black people to be racist, we are recipients of racism not purveyors. This racist story by TMZ should be pulled immediately! NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE!!!

Ummm... perhaps we should all boycott every square inch of land we live, work, and recreate upon because it was stolen from Native Americans over the course of three centuries. Stupid Ass Liberal Media Always trying to stir the turd.

Boycott a bank now who's owners and employees and their families were not even alive when slavery was a "world business".
Now that makes a lot of sense. Hurt those people who had nothing to do with it.

How about we all boycott Africa for actually starting the slave trade? How about Africans finally close the slave trade business? Hell its still alive and well in Africa and all our celbrities do is ignore the fact and continue trying to get average everyday people like you and I to boycott our own people and hurt our own people.

For heavens sake, are you people actually serious with this nonsense? Who the hell on the board at Barclay's or even a representitive was a decision maker during the slave trade is still around today?

get a clue people, all this damn boycotting, not letting history rest and constant racism amongst blacks and whites is only hurting our country.

I mean it seems to me if you go back on almost all we have or that was built had some form of slavery tied to it. So do we boycott every dayum thang??!!! I"m so tired of this whole race thing. HELLO 18th centry???? WHO THE HELL CARES!!! It's reporters and others who cont to keep it alive and well here in America. How about we all BOYCOTT the perverts who take our children.

It's not about boycotting anything just acknowledgement and doing more like a sports center for inner city children, or even more after school programs for kids who want to do something positive have a place to go; not hyping up basketball courts...that's all those drug slingers need, a nicer bball court to sell their poison...till next time world...BLONDEE

black slavery is gone in this country........I wish ppl would get over it, honestly!
It should not be used as a crutch, as I now will be shown thru the rest of the posts. If you were not a slave shut up, and I was not an owner, so shut up before you speak
