    The other owners should vote to take the team from him. It is a privilege to own a NBA team, and he has lost that privilege.

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.
    nope his first amendment rights protect him from the government not the public.

    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.
    except you can define racism all you want....this is racism.


    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 are trying to justify this. I don't know if you want your partner to not take selfies with black people but what I do know is that you don't understand the first amendment and why this is an issue.

    Did you listen to the whole thing?

    No it isn't racism.

    Bigotry, yes.

    Prejudice, yes.

    Racialism, yes.

    Racism... NO!

    Stupidity, yes.

    Racialism is not racism. Racism has a specific definition, meaning someone thinks one race is superior to another.

    What ever happened to liberal tolerance for others, and respecting other people's culture?

    Besides, never happen. Their contract doesn't allow for it under such situations, especially when the girlfriend is baiting him to say something that can be construed as racist.

    I saw that and would love to know more details.

    This same thing happened to Anna Nicole when her 132 year old billionaire hubby met her at a strip club and married her. His kids sued her. I guess it's common practice when gold diggers try to get their hands on the rich boyfriend's cash.

    I'm not justifying anything, dear. I don't care what the old coot said to his girlfriend in private. It doesn't matter, and nobody was hurt except the gold digger. And that was the price she paid for being a high priced call girl.

    So he's a well known racist, and yet the NAACP said up until yesterday that he's not a racist. Interesting contradiction of the facts (their contradiction). Do they always give lifetime achievement awards to well known racists?
