    I believe we are seeing the cost of making your opinion clear. Billions nor not. Notice Jay Leno kept his opinions to himself. Now he has tons of them.

    Why don't you ask Cliven Bundy or Jimmy the Greek about opinions.

    Cuban is a smart guy, so I believe he made the statements to make a point re: Stearling. The rest of the NBA owners better think long and hard about punishing someone for their opinion, lest they be on the other side of the pitchforks tomorrow.

    I do too. He's very intelligent. He sees ways to leverage certain items that none of the others on shark tank can even grasp. He just comes off as very intelligent, by far the most intelligent on that show.

    Seems rather silly to me. I mean getting the commissioner involved.
    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.

    But that is not how the race baiters are going to take it and you know it.

    Jones is pointing out that Cuban suffers from a common bias, that black people are scary just being. The white people he mentioned had to be decorated with tats and have shaved heads.
    That's like saying all black people have the common bias that all white people are racist (even if they dont know it).

    That statement isn't as far off as you think it is.
