Common, a rapper well known for his advocacy for "social justice" issues, recently praised NBA teams who have decided to remove the title "owner" from their lexicons. As The Daily Wire reports:

"I'm so pleased," Common told the outlet. "The term owner — it didn't sit right with me. The history of what we have and we are as black people in this country ... it's just not really being considerate of the history."

The new terms that some NBA teams have adopted are "Managing Partner" and "Chairman."

Common especially appreciated NBA Commissioner Adam Silver for referring to one team's majority investor as "governor" instead of "owner."

"Nobody owns us," Common said. "These men are professionals."

A wealthy rapper advocating "social justice" in order to flatter the egos of multimillionaire sports stars is, well, pretty "woke" it seems.
