SAN FRANCISCO --  I am a basketball fan and have been for most of my life. I know basketball to be a game of discipline and skill, where the best players are rarely touched because they are too good, too fast, and too smart.

Basketball is also a very physical game where players recognize an opponent’s weakness to exploit it. It’s a game where equal parts aggression and finesse create a beautiful balance when done right. On occasion, though, the balance gets tipped and the aggression takes over and all hell breaks loose.

In those cases, the catalyst for the altercation rarely has to do with the game itself.

And that’s what happened in Beijing this week when a brawl broke out between the visiting Georgetown University basketball team and the Bayi Rockets (whom I must add are drawn from the People’s Liberation Army, the largest military in the world).

I’m no expert in international politics but I think it’s safe to say that the fight was about more than basketball.

Most of the Georgetown players are big, young, black men and for me it was strange to see them so handily taken down by the smaller, thinner-looking Chinese players. But then I remembered the Chinese players are soldiers and the Georgetown players are civilians and it all made more sense.

I refuse to look at the incident as a race thing, even though most of the people involved were black and Chinese. The perception of black basketball players in America is that they are thugs in basketball shoes, but in the video of the incident, it’s the Chinese players that look like they should be restrained.

Reports say the game was heated the whole time. Georgetown is known for their lockdown defense and both teams refused to back down. The Chinese team was given 57 free throws to the American team’s 15, so either the Georgetown players were playing a really aggressive game or the officiating was one-sided toward the Chinese home team. I think it’s safe to assume both to be true.

The fight started when a Chinese player fouled one of the American players, leading to a dispute and then a melee. From the video of the fight, it appears that the Georgetown players are out-numbered and really far from home. In the swarm of punches and kicks there were a few people trying to break it up, but with no luck.

It’s easy to say we have a great relationship with other countries and I think as Americans it’s hard for us to fully grasp the anti-American sentiment that exists in other parts of the word. Seeing how smiley Joe Biden has been on his trip to China isn’t really indicative of the way some Chinese people may feel about Americans.

And there’s also some ambiguity about what Americans may feel about themselves. After all, when Americans journey to other parts of the world, we’re expected to represent the whole country even if there are parts of it that we may not agree with ourselves.

I think the Chinese team and the fans who threw chairs and bottles at the American players saw those Georgetown boys as everything wrong with the world and completely indicative of the evil imperialist America they may hate.

But the reality of the situation is that the Georgetown players are college students with loans and scholarships who back home in America are normal everyday young people trying to secure their future through hard work and perseverance. Since most of them are black, even at home they have to deal with hate and unequal opportunity.

They are not American ambassadors or soldiers: they are basketball players.

The Chinese players on the opposing team are drawn from the military and it’s no stretch to say that they have a different skill set than the college hoopers who will most likely go pro in things other than basketball back at home.

At one point in the video, you can see a Chinese player sitting on an American player’s chest, just whiling away the time until finally one of the American player’s teammates comes to his aid and the swarm of people consumes them all.

Truthfully, I’ve never seen anything like that before in basketball and I don’t think there is anything someone could do in a basketball game to deserve something like that. It makes me think that for the Chinese players the anger stems from much more than that, and our relationship with China is more tense than the politicians are letting us know.

The game ended in a tie, but in reality it was a loss for both teams.

The perception around the internet is that the Chinese players overreacted and the American players resorted to the level that was necessary to make it out of there with their lives and dignity.

The politics of our country can sometimes leave the people in it out to dry and have to fend for ideas that might not belong to us when we’re abroad. It’s too bad the Georgetown players had to be the target of an apparent hate which they are not responsible for.

I've never seen anything like that either. I wasn't there to see what got things cooking so hot, but that can't happen. That just can't happen ever again.
Georgetown should cancel their remaining games and head home and other USA teams should not making that trip. The Chine team should be held accountable. They should be banned form all future international competition. I don't want to sound overly proud to be an American, but Georgetown was doing China a favor to travel all that way and play basketball. If that's their idea of hospitality, they can play with themselves.

The fight is really an indicator of the growing nationalism in Mainland China today. The PRC government has been feeding its citizens with large doses of anti-foreign nationalism in an attempt to deflect criticism from their own problems. Anti-foreign sentiment has always been strong in China and the government knows how to harness these feelings for their own benefit. Race is also a factor here, even though the author refuses to consider the possibility. I've lived in China and Taiwan and I can tell you that they traditionally look down on people with darker skin. From a cultural and intellectual standpoint, Chinese often look down on the rest of the world, even other East Asians - Aaron in Taipei

This was nothing but testosterone. There was a brawl between the Chinese soccer team and a Brazilian one, and the Chinese blogs decry the behavior of the Chinese team. Anti-Americanism might have had something to do with it but only because it was an American team opposing. There is a history of violence in Chinese sports and it is usually directed at anyone opposing them, it doesn't matter if they're black, white, or yellow. I am sure there are some Chinese that are racists but there are Americans that are racists as well, and almost everyone is a racist against races that they are not familiar with. It is expected that charged sports events bring out the worst in people sometimes.

I agree with almost all the opinions posted here except the one that states, "Georgetown was doing China a favor". This is the very essence of why Anti-American sentiment exists. Other than the many brave soldiers fighting overseas, the United States (like any other country) always puts one's own interest first. This trip could have been a good opportunity for both parties; the Chinese get to experience American college-level basketball with Georgetown physicality and Georgetown players get some cultural awareness in a rapidly changing society. Georgetown players may not be responsible for the bad blood between the two nations but we don't need to contribute further distrust and hatred by being close-minded.

Donny, your ignorance of China is exactly the kind of culturally self-centered sentiment that you are criticizing in your article. I can tell you that very few Chinese care about the so called politics as you have written. It is very clear that the Chinese online community strongly condemns the actions of the Rockets, and it is far from political. What the Rockets did was very impolite and that's where it all ends. No politics. You are reading way too much into the situation.

This article written by Donny Lumpkins comes up with a lot of assumptions with no facts. Donny wasn't there and to pre-judge, can cause a lot of hatred among races. My cousin is Chinese and is married to a Black male. I told him about your article and he found it distasteful. You definitely need to take some diversity educational classes. If I was you, I will resign as a writer for New America Media. We don't need writers who perpetuate hatred....as if there isn't enough out there already.

From that kick with much hate, you can see how much chinese hate America, and western world, I was from china, I can tell since we are kids we are brain washed by government to hate the western world. As China get richer and more power by exporting, they will definitely take over the world with their dictatorship and greedy value.
China has spend more than USA on their military secretly, if they take over the world, that would be horrible! They already did on the economy by chinese products, so why we still keep buying things made in China, we shouldn`t always want to buy cheaper, because that would make company move their factory to China, and make us lose job, I know many big USA and western country`s companies creat many jobs in China, so unfair! stop buying things made in China!

Even Chinese immigrant to other countries, most of them do not get changed, as they are living in the western country and get all kinds of welfare, they still hate western country, because that already were rooted in their heart, but they pretend to be nice to get money from you, that's why they appolagize after brawl, you think they are really say sorry to USA, never!
Only few of them are really nice, but they still couldn't say bad words on china, because china wouldn't issue their visa to go back to visit their family, how ugly country it is! even you were born in China! that's how they control people, even you are living at other country.
As we stopping buying chinese products, we should stop letting too much chinese immigrant to your country, like USA, Canada, Austrlia, UK,etc,because most of chinese just come here for money and welfare, not love these countries, they hate them, if you could go to chinese web set up in your country, you can see lots of chinese abroad who hate the country where they already get benefit a lot.

And china has issued lots of chinese money RMB, but exchange rate to USA dollar does not change much, so it makes chinese become much richer, and can buy lots of natrural resourse, like oil, gas, wood, land and big company too in other countries, that makes them take over the world faster.

If you ask me the chinese players were all too prepared for that fight. It may have anti-americanism at work or just dislike for the other team but they reacted showed without a doubt the china is prepaing for a fight. It also showed that the americans were really caught off guard by the whole incident which means we don't or didn't view them as a threat, not to say that the chinese people are the threat but the mere fact they're players are drafted from the military means and shows that their militarizing their culture. Maybe nothing will come from this but history has always shown that number two will do anything for the number one spot and I'm the citizens of the US will respond the their own way. The battle of the superpowers has began weither we the American "imperials" want to admit it or not. I truely see in the next few months to turn of the year the PLA will start flexing its muscles. I don't hate the China or its people, but I love the United States of America with all its character and flaws.

The Chinese Communist Party has been force feeding it's citizens anti-American hate-propaganda since the Korean war, and that China is the "middle-Kingdom," which is rightfully entitled to do whatever it wants when it wants to whomever it wants. Ask the Tibetans, Uighurs, Falon-Gong, Christians, non-Han ethnicity, or any Chinese person that's openly criticized the CCP. The Chinese are so drunk with power right now and eager to exact historical revenge against the west, whom it blames for everything essentially. The Chinese military is literally preparing for war with America and believes this is inevitable. They've stolen any and every technology they can get their hands on without regard. I think the Chinese people are wonderful fantastic people with a great history, but the CCP is a serious threat to human rights, world peace, and humanity itself. They are going through the same pattern as Nazi-Germany's rise to power. This basketball game was just one little insight into the psyche being formed by the CCP on it's people. Gods save us.

For the dictator country, it can do what ever it wants, because it never let you know the truth, it controls the media, like months ago, there is huge oil leak in the sea of China, but you couldn't see any news, only a few people post on web, but was deleted soon, because china doesn't want other countries know,and doesn't want to pay for the envirement.Chinese spies on internet are everywhere, they can cover the truth by chinese and English at all over the world. So why do we still support this ugly country by buying chinese products? Not just wall-mart, everywhere,everything is made in China!

When Google quit from china, move to Hongkong, all the comments posted on web in china are bad words to Google, I want to post good words on that, but was deleted, china control the media, they hate google leave, and will make other company leave too, that's why they want to people hate google, and never use google again, disgusting! China can do whatever it wants, never trust it, like any data, any news, any provement, any promise, etc.
And, china should pay for the biggest bill for globle climate warming, because china is very greedy, only want to develop economy to get money, there is no much tree and much river in china now, my hometown 's temperature has been rised up a lot, winter is shorter and shorter too, and many chinese factories inject the sewage to the deep well in their field, because they don't want to pay sewage process fee, oneday we will suffer from this polluted underground water.
So if you don't want to support this ugly country, please stop buying any products and stocks, because that's the reason to make china richer and more powerful. And, don't let chinese's company buy big company in your country, china is expanding by chinese money which has been depreciated, because china issued lots of chinese money to handle the inflation.

I am not living in a bubble, I was a chinese before, I definitely know china more than you.
There are many chinese spy working on the internet, post comments to cover the truth and make people confuse, some of them are living at the western countries, and already got citizenship there.China try to control people's brain by media, not just in china, they try to do all over the world. Because china has expanded a lot by chinese products, huge immigration, and depreciated chinese money RMB, china has issued a lot of RMB to handle inflation, and makes many chinese have lots fo money to take over the land, natural resource and big companies all over the world, their final purpose is to beat all the western countries which have different value as them.
If you know chinese language, you can go to chinese web, and check out the many comments, you can see how much chinese hate USA and the western countries with chinese government education. If you don't know chinese language, you will be easily cheated by chinese, because chinese is the most Insidious cunning person in the world, you never could read any mind from their face, they always smile to you with hidden knife, they will not kill you right away, only after they become richer, more powerful and stronger.
chinese is very good at taking advantage of western's kindness, I always was told by chinese the western people is easiest to be cheated, because they are very kind, like to trust people a lot.
Here chinese I wrote about is general chinese, not individuals, there are indeed some nice people, but not very much, with government's brain wash and education, good one will become bad one finally.

The other day, I was watching this news program and this guy said, " how come there are so many tall Chinese people now, I always thought they were short".

Actually it wastes my time to respond you, because you are very stubborn, you don't speak chinese, how do you know chinese, if you could, you must live there at least over ten years, and have an asian face, otherwise they think you are foreigner, they wouldn't let you know the truth. chinese always have two faces.
I don't have bad experience in china, as long as you are not against the government, you are fine, but after I move to the democracy country, I just found how terrible the dictatorship is, because they control you brain.I have a happy life there, it is the same as north korean, they never have a chance to go abroad, couldn't compare so they are happy there.
I love the country I am living now from my deep heart, so I don't want it become china, that's why I tell the truth. china has expanded too much, every thing is made in china, can you live without china? absolutely not! because it has already control the economy all over the world, the next step they will control with their stronger military, and dictator, cheating, and greedy value.
And, you may can find many chinese around you now, they come here with greedy heart, abuse the system to get richer, many chinese buy a lot of property, and rent all the out, but they never report their rent income, and get lots of welfare with low income, even they have lots of cash income and big income from business in china.
If there are many chinese in the city, the real estate market price is definitely much higher. You can do some research about that.
For chinese, the rule is not rule, that's what they are educated by government, it is so unfair for nice people living here who obey the rule.
That's why I tell the truth!

Reports from people that were there, including the Chinese English Language site Global Times, admit the officiating was out of hand, and clearly biased in favor of the Chinese, with 50+ free throws for the Rockets and 12 for the Hoyas. The American players were seen throwing their hands up and laughing in the second half as fouls were called for no apparent reason consistently, while the Rockets desperately tried to stay in the game. What led to the brawl if you watch the video is a serious hard foul on an American player that gets no call. Witnesses of the game also noted that the Chinese fans were chanting "niggers" at the American players at random points during the game. In the video, security officers turn away from the fight rather than stopping it, as fans and coaching staff from the Chinese side join in to outnumber American players, and began using bottles, garbage, and chairs as weapons. When Georgetown staff asked for a security escort from the stadium, it was refused.

I'm sorry but anyone who blames the Hoyas for this fight is an idiot. Anyone who thinks you can't read eye witness accounts to draw some conclusions about what was going on is also an idiot. These were adults, professionally trained military personnel, and they picked on a group of college kids when things weren't going their way. Chinese government officials and security were on hand for the game, and turned a blind eye to it, even as our boys were getting beaten with chairs. They SHOULD ABSOLUTELY cancel the rest of their games over there and come home. China has shown no interest in their safe-keeping while abroad, and as is evidence from the video, the team does not have the staff to defend them against the aggression and violence of Chinese fans. I honestly cannot believe the Georgetown team issued any statement of apology.

American whites are also racist against Chinese from various laws in history discriminating against Chinese and the countless racial name against Chinese. Black Americans esp thugs are seen to attack Chinese in American, because they are smaller in stature. There are so many dead chinese at the hands of black thugs in American that it is not even funny.

I know it is hard for American to see themselve as the BAD guys, but it is the truth. America is an aggressive nation that bullies other people. American whites are also racist against Chinese from various laws in history discriminating against Chinese and the countless racial name against Chinese. Black Americans esp thugs are seen to attack Chinese in American, because they are smaller in stature. There are so many dead chinese at the hands of black thugs in American that it is not even funny.
