White bloggers on the internet: LOL that old basketball player with a funny name has an opinion on HBO’s Girls

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar writes about Girls for HuffPo, and people are like “LOL the internet is weird.” 

Now, Huffington Post, can you open up your blog space for some actual cultural critics to share some insight instead of getting a famous person to nonsensically rehash stuff that has been written literally everyone else?” - Blackbook 

I don’t know, I thought it was an interesting piece. Better than what Joyce Carol Oates wrote about Girls. Plus, like, people know Abdul-Jabbar has co-authored several books on subjects like the Harlem Renaissance and black troops during WWII? So, like, whatever. Dude’s pretty legit. Save your outrage for Shaq’s take on Zero Dark Thirty.
