    Based on that list (which is weak, by the way....I only see him use the N word once, and it was 21 years ago), and based on the fact that he was set to receive an award from the NAACP for his philanthropy to those people he's supposed to hate? No, I don't see him as a racist. Racists to me are the men who lynched blacks and forced them to sit at the back of the bus and wouldn't let a great man like Jackie Robinson play baseball for years simply because he was black. FDR was racist to people of Asian descent because he interred them in camps and stole their possessions.

    This guy mouthed off to his girlfriend. BFD, as far as I'm concerned.

    Does the NAACP make it a habit of deciding to give awards to people who make no positive contributions to the black community?

    I would think that would be in violation of the contract - forfeiting any pay. No?

    You're right. I don't believe someone's words to his girlfriend are important enough to get my panties in a bunch. Sorry to disappoint you.

    No, I was too elated at the Rangers win and besides, I'm a disgruntled Knicks fan so I've sworn off the NBA playoffs.

    I'm sure they were offended. Getting offended by words has become a common event in the USA. I don't let words bother me. Actions are more important.

    This guy must really hate black people. That would explain why he has a black man coaching his very expensive black players....yes?

    What now? There were multiple articles following his comments about how republicans are racist. Further articles that if republicans don't want to be labeled racist, they should stop associating with people like him and Nugent, etc.

    Donald Sterling has a well documented history of this. I was listening to ESPN radio this morning and they were interviewing a former player and coach(can't remember his name) that said this latest comment he made was "small potatoes" compared to some of the stuff that he has said over the years. Apparently his racism is "common knowledge" amongst insiders.

    Kind of made me wonder after hearing that why the league has put up with him this long...

    From who? What sources?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
