    That's the "hook, line and sinker" on how it works in American politic$.

    It must suck to be so partisan you can no longer see right from wrong, it is all about party. I never thought it matter a whit what party he was. But, factually if he was registered as a Republican, he is until he changes it.

    Okay, let's assume that he was set up by her, was it right for him to say what he said? A lesson all of these multi-millionaires should have learned from Mitt Romney's 47% comment was "never say in private what you wouldn't say in public" and never assume that what you say in private will remain private.

    Bottom Line: He's a racist at worse, a bigot at best and someone who truly believes in "White Privilege" in the utmost. He can blame his racist/bigoted views on "the culture of Corporate America" if he wishes, but it's just an excuse for him being a jerk.

    Not always, but in this case, yes.

    But nowhere near as rich as the west africans that sold them into slavery!

    The vast majority of those enslaved that were transported to the New World were West Africans from the central and western parts of the continent, sold by West Africans to Western European slave traders



    Dion didn't say slavery was exclusive to White Americans. She merely said (male) White slave owners generally had sex with their female slaves and created their wealth on the backs of slave labor. Both are very true. So, your take on White America's non-exclusive participation in the slave trade is irrelevant here.

    You knew his political party would come up. It really hasn't anything to do with this whole event anymore than the state of his birth. As far as I know Sterling has never ran for political office but this all of sudden became important for some moron.

    But we knew some pointed head partisan hack would try to google his political party. I don't have time to go through all the posts and threads but who was the first partisan hack to jump on this?

    Why should I or anyone else other than Africans care what happens to Black Africans in a post-slavery world? Their crimes of selling their own people into slavery is in the past. Let their government and the African people deal with the legacy of that issue.

    And yes, I do believe that "a fair exchange" is not robbery. Why? Because of the mutual agreement of the exchange between both parties. As long as they agree on the terms of the exchange, why should there be a problem with it?

    That is it. Most people are not like him. I hope he is kicked out of the NBA.

    And that gives him an excuse to be a racist jerk? Goodness, MaggieD. I thought you were smarter than this. Stop trying to defend the indefensible. Donald Sterling may have grew up in an environment where racist was prevalent, but it's 2014 for goodness sake! "Let go of the hate already!" Geez!
