    The first amendment doesn't apply here since the government was not involved.

    He still is free to speak....he just has to pay the consequences of his speech, he agreed to follow the rules of the NBA and the they decided to hold him to it.
    Where this happened is irrelevant.

    I have reviewed Donald Tokowicz comments and believe he must be mentally ill. He is married, is 80 years old, jewish, and dating a woman half his age who is half-black and half-mexican. He does not care if she sleeps with black men but insists that she cannot "bring black people to the game" or post instagrams with black men in them.

    I want to know why she can't bring black people to the game but he is perfectly fine with her sleeping with black men. If he was "racist" you'd think that he would have a problem with his mistress sleeping with black men. But he doesn't care about that, he just doesn't want her to bring blacks to the games. I don't get it.

    You are looking for a rational basis for an opinion that is decidedly irrational.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    ! ! !

    Don't YOU have the SAME view of Blacks.. besides being posting with even more bias against Jews? The latter why'd you even be in this string.

    Haven't YOU Posted many times in your short Tenure here against Racial Mixing and Diversity and said said blacks have NOT made a positive contribution to the USA?
    http://www.debatepolitics.com/genera...-weakness.html
    Similarly, You only defended blacks against 'Israeli Racism".

    MOST of your posts on DP are against Jews, Blacks, and Gays.

    The only difference between your views and Sterling's is you hate HIS race even MORE and... Gays as well.

    LOL

    I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.

I don't get it.

    Let me take a shot at this.

    The woman, and I am using that term loosely here, is supposedly with him. Everybody seems to know that.

    If she brings blacks to the games or posts pictures of herself with blacks on her instagram, whatever that is, people call Sterling about her. I am sure the call is something about the woman using him for his money and he is a chump and just generally to give him ****.

    He would prefer that she did not make it so obvious that she is with other men while she is with him. I can't say I blame him.

    Now you are going to say why he specified blacks, right? In the recording when she asked if it was Ok if she took pictures with whites or brought them to the game, he didn't answer that. He said something like, I see what you are trying to do.

    He didn't say it was OK for her to do those things with whites but not blacks.

    If my girlfriend was doing something that caused me to get a rash of ****, I would also ask her not to do it because I don't have the time to deal with **** like that.

    This is just my take on this.

    Others may think differently.

    The information used against him was obtained illegally, would be a good reason.

    If he had said it publically, probably. It would piss me off more that my g/f secretly recorded the conversation and released it to the press. I would spend as much as I had to, to make sure she waited tables for thevrest of her life.
