I can say with absolute certainty that I never expected to write an article about this.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the leading scorer in National Basketball Association history (besides Wilt Chamberlain, if you believe what he wrote in his autobiography). Since retiring in 1989, Abdul-Jabbar has taken up a number of hobbies and interest, including television reviewing.
Recently he wrote an essay about HBO's Girls, saying that he had mixed feelings on the program. He says that it is "original and insightful," but also "mostly white" and "not that funny."
Using facts ("56 percent of the show's audience is male," he writes) and "expert" analysis ("[It] obviously is struggling to be a voice of its generation") to make his point, the basketball great criticizes the lack of minorities on it, saying that it "could leave a viewer snow blind," and that the character played by Community's Donald Glover this season was merely an attempt at creating "some jungle fever lover," saying that the show could have saved money by using "A black dildo."
What does Kareem like? The sex! He says that those scenes are "fresh and original and insightful."
He also likes Adam, Hannah's sometimes boyfriend. Kareem says that Adam is a "wonderful character whose quirkiness never diminished his depth."
