    I don't go to basketball games and I don't watch them on TV, but I know that a lot of black people play and are interested in basketball, so I am a little surprised that Mr. Sterling, whose girlfriend is half- black and half-Mexican, would say this.

    It will be interesting to see what the NBA has to say about this.
    Good for him!

    If fans vote with their feet, and the team revenue drops into the toilet, then the laissez faire economy will have worked as it should.

    The NBA never said much about what an owner of the Brooklyn Nets said for years about African americans. But then
    gain, nobody cared what Jay-Z sang about.

    Only problem with that is that gate revenue is a very, very small portion of overall revenue for NBA teams. The largest revenue stream is the national TV deal with ESPN. All the teams share in that equally.

    I don't care that he said "negro." I care that he insinuated that blacks were better off as slaves.

    C'mon man. Bundy is a racist. Only a racist would suggest that blacks would be better off as slaves. Especially the additional family time comment. You're looking rather foolish defending him/

    “And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he asked. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”
    Cliven Bundy on blacks: ‘Are they better off as slaves?’

    You can't polish that turd.
