    All of them have contracts. But apparently they should boycott the game and basically end their season because Donald Sterling is the same racist asshole we've known he was for 30 years.

    Not to change the subject, but isn't it illegal to record someone without their knowledge? I still believe you should be careful what you say.

    Just an observation.
    Of course that's your observation.

    The difference between me and others is I'm not a hypocrite. I believe that people have a right to privacy in their bedrooms, which is why I am very much in favor of gay rights. I also believe that women have a right to privacy when it comes to their bodies, which is why I am pro-choice. I don't pick and choose the meme of privacy as apparently many others do. This man made a private statement to his female friend that is, simply put, none of our business. It was made in private, and he has a right to say what he wants. It's his First Amendment right, especially in private.

    Racism to me means people getting hurt by the actions of others, including oppression, prevention of success, terror, death, and other assorted things that actually do harm. Who exactly was harmed by what he said to his girlfriend? This guy owns a team that employs how many black people? Lots. The irony of his words make this a total non-issue.

    Agree with him on what, by the way? Agree with him that he doesn't want his girlfriend to bring black people to his team's games? Agree with him that he doesn't want her to post pictures of herself with black people? I didn't know we were supposed to agree or disagree with that. Why would I or anyone care who his girlfriend brings to games, or who she takes selfies with?

    It wouldn't bother him, I'll bet. He's worth billions. His original investment in that team was nothing compared to what it's worth now. He'll laugh his way to the bank.

    Actually that was my first thought, there is no doubt it is an invasion of privacy and I imagine his attorney is pursuing a lawsuit or some other legal remedy.

    In the meantime the guy is a racist pig. The first time I heard his words I thought for sure it was some sort of computer construct, I did not believe someone could still be that stupid. The ignorant of the world never ceases to amaze me.

    It depends on the state. Most states are single party consent states where only one party has to give consent to the recording of a conversation.

    Which words specifically?
