    re: Mark Cuban talks about prejudice

    African-Americans have help from the gov't and help from the media. Still they're, as a group, unsuccessful. When is anyone going to care enough about the welfare of African-Americans to except the fact that African-American's CULTURE has a whole lot to do with their failures?

    Quote me saying he was wrong. Cuban has yet to learn that his mouth will continue to run and get him in trouble. Maybe is just a matter of opinions, but seems like there are many that are calling him wrong.
    If you haven learned that you must censor your mouth when there is a microphone in your face and a target on your checkbook, you are an idiot.

    Did they miss the bit when he also mentioned about the white skinhead with tattoos?

    Cuban is an iconic character likely to take the mantle from trump as one people look up to as a model of success in our country.
    Trump? He would only be Trump if he went bankrupt a half a dozen times.

    re: Mark Cuban talks about prejudice

    So because he is a person who is high profile and constantly has a microphone stuffed in his face by people wanting his opinion, he should just say what they want to hear? He isn't entitled to his own opinion? Do you think he cares that they are targeting his checkbook? I bet he does, and I bet he knows exactly what he can say and how much it will cost. I am sure people calling him an idiot keeps him up all night crying into his billions.

    I don't see what the big deal is, the comments I read were fine. Something a lot of people don't seem to understand, you can say just about anything if you are honest and sincere, but not hateful. It's hate speech that gets you in trouble.

    It looks like the majority are saying his remarks are reasonable albeit a bit clumsy
    I agree. I just watched a segment about this on ESPN. The consensus there was Cuban could have used a better example, but there was nothing racist at all in his remarks. We all have our prejudices, biases, our likes and dislikes, that just the way it is.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Saw the same one, but the did conclude that commish Silver will be pressed to make a statement on the matter, which is where the real fun is going to start.
