    Right-wing?

    It shouldn't be about a demographic. It should be about the fact that anyone can break the law and essentially ruin another's livelihood - even when that person broke no laws.

    He admitted it was his voice on the tape.

    If I were his adviser I would point out to him, however, that he has billions of dollars and maybe 10 years left to enjoy it.. it might not be the best decision to spend that time in a court room.
    It may be safer than spending that time in the bedroom with chippies.

    The comments were personal and not affiliated with the team in any way. So the NBA fines Sterling (who is a member)2.5 million for personal comments that were recorded without his knowledge? Holy crap, this is scary for everyone. Sure, the guy is a biggoted idiot, but this is entering a whole new world of frivolous fines. For what? To pretend we don't live in a separatist society full of racial tensions? Why not be adults and have the conversation, not hide it and throw this guilt trip bs around.

    "I've never met a racist". Have you? Ask anyone if they are racist and you can bet the answer will be "no" 100% of the time and be right. What a fake society of idiots we are.

    So now I'm sure they will ban & fine everyone who says anything in private that hurts someone's feelings going forward, yes? They don't ban & fine the people who commit crimes, we know that much. I guess sticks & stones no longer break bones, but names really do hurt people.

    Meanwhile, Sterling will laugh his way to the bank, and probably be the silent partner (and funder) in another major league sports purchase, with a lot of winking & nodding going on behind the scenes.

    I'll bet his donations to the NAACP & underprivileged will dry up now too.

    When? I never heard that.

    I'm sure it is his voice. I'm asking when he said it was, and where he was when he said it.

    I don't know if anyone else yet has commented on this in such a manner but does anyone think it suspicious that Magic one day takes a photo with this little gold digging Delilah and the next day is poised to buy the team?

    Because this was an overreaction, and I don't believe in punishing people whose actions prove that he doesn't oppress blacks. There are real racists in this country who want to hurt black people. This wasn't one of them.

    Where did I say "winning", by the way? Who won? Nobody.
