    I dont care if he is racist or not, I am tired of racism is only committed by white people. BS.
    If we are going to have the racism 24/7/365 be honest and show both sides of it.

    But I am not blinded to what is going on not one bit.

    That's not really the issue here. Your whining about the media is beside the point.

    Wouldn't be. However, it's a tricky thing when a recording of a private (at the time) conversation between a couple becomes public and then the man's standing within the organization he owns and runs is at jeopardy.

    In other words, freedom of speech does not include freedom from the consequences of what we say.

    Correct. It will just become a matter of sorting out which social values we establish as necessary and not necessary.

    The idea that the NBA itself is "racist" is sheer lunacy.

    That said, Donald Sterling has long had a reputation as a complete and utter asshole and this should come as no surprise to anyone.

    Major sports franchises cater to the public. They rely on the public's fandom and revenue. It's inevitable and frankly appropriate.

    If she recorded that conversation without his knowledge you do realize that is a felony correct?
    He won't press charges. The last thing he'll aim to do is shed the spotlight on these comments once more and confirm their validity.

    You know, it's entirely possible to be racist and simultaneously be a victim of racism.

    By the way, what's the statute of limitations on how long you guys are going to continue to flog Trayvon Martin's corpse for political points?

    Says the guy who called the NBA "racist" in the first few posts of the thread.

    People have been clamoring for Sterling to be gone for damn near 30 years.

    However, the NBA can't just take the team away. They can lean on him to sell and generally make his life miserable, but just seizing the team isn't an option. Sharpton's an idiot who doesn't know what he's talking about.
