What to Make of "Lin-sanity"

What to Make of "Lin-sanity"

An Extra Moment with Kenny R: What to make of "Lin-sanity"

When it comes to this craze covering America and the world, we have to go beyong basketball.  We have to go to where people don`t want to go anymore.  We have to break down stereotypes of racial and ethnic kind.

The host of this show learned at an early age never to take any game or any sports competition for granted.  At any given time  any athlete, any team can gain inspiration and make their skills shine at the right moment and obtain the victory.  Having racial and ethnic stereotypes while enjoying sports is utterly dumb and takes away from the enjoyment of the competition as a fan.

Instead of analyzing this lin-sanity craze racially and ethnically, perhaps we should just use this as a lesson in confidence and self esteem.  Lin-sanity has shown that we shall never give up on our dreams, our expectations, our goals.  Jeremy Lin should be an example of determination and hard work to achieve one`s dreams.  Prepare to be another victim of "linsanity".
