    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?
    You agree with him that discrimination is okay and its not racism. Which is fine, you're entitled to your beliefs and he his, but others may disagree. His privacy was violated but its a moot issue now. Don't you find it kind of strange a person who owns a basketball team doesn't like black people? Can you not understand why this would be a big deal to a lot of folks?

    The only words I heard him say, besides rambling about how badly they treat blacks in Israel, were about his girlfriend and her selfies & who she brings to games. I'll ask again what there is to agree or disagree with? I don't care who his girlfriend brings to his games. Why on earth would I?

    I've also said repeatedly how strange his comments are given what team he owns. Did you not read any of them? Apparently not.

    So who was hurt by his words? Who was oppressed, held back, suffered....I still don't get that.

    If he told his girlfriend not to bring her German friends to the games anymore, would you be this worked up?

    I saw that. I asked you which words you find to be racist.

    Do you think he is a racist? Do you think it is possible a man who thinks and talks like this might have actively discriminated against anyone? Why do you defend these guys so vehemently?

    I see there is little point in talking to you. My mistake.
