    But here's my question: I accept that Conservatives aren't, as a group, racist. Yet for some reason whenever racism comes up, the defense of the racists always comes from the right. Why is that? Why would a someone who isn't racist automatically rush to the defense of anybody (anybody who's white anyway) that makes racist comments?
    Your personal attacks aren't working, when you prove my point.

    It's absurd that Cuban feels the need to apologize, but he did.
    Oh FFS.

    Look at black America versus Asian America and decide which of the two is harder working at bettering their lives from the time they are children on through adulthood.

    What personal attack? My point is proven by this whole thread, and any thread about Bundy or Sterling or anybody - if there's a defense of what's said it doesn't come from liberals. Why is that?

    You can either answer that question or you can crawl back in your hole like you usually do (but not without a parting shot).

    Cute. Pitting people of color against each other and making false/incomplete comparisons to perpetuate racism. How transparent.

    Sometimes thoughts need to be elaborated upon. While your statement is true, what alternative(s) do you offer to African-Americans that, for example, saves AA's face? Saving face is a strong motivator of behavior among the African-American community.. Much more so than yours or mine, I presume. Why it's so difficult for the African-American culture to do something for their own good...

    If I were a Mavericks player I'd be showing up everyday to work wearing a hoodie. Dirk needs to hang out at Salty Dawgs Tattoos.

    Re: Mark Cuban talks about prejudice

    Cuban at worst mixed up word phraseology by comparing prejudice (prejudgment) of others, based on appearance and circumstances, with bigotry.

    It's human instinct to make preconceived assessments based on experience and social info. Though discriminating against someone because of a biased, intolerant and superior judgment is more inline with bigotry/racism.

    Why do you always show up to rally the "they're all racists" crowd?
