    Let me preface my comment by saying that when I was growing up Michael Jordan was my idol. He's the one that got me interested in basketball. Now, I'm not angry or upset by his admission given the context of U.S. History and the treatment of blacks, particularly 30+ years ago. No, what is bothersome is the lack of noise coming from the Always Outraged Liberal PC Mob©. If it was Larry Bird who said that the AOLPCM© would be sharpening pitchforks and lighting their torches demanding action. There's *zero* consistency from the U.S. left-wing when it comes to race. That is evidenced by comments made by Snoop Dogg, Bill Clinton and Jesse Jackson. If the racism comes from their team, there's a pass, but if it isn't a team member then there is ****ing hell to be paid in full.

    To be fair, I have no idea where Michael Jordan stands politically, but you are correct.

    I guess this means we will have to ask him to give up the Clippers than.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    No, the Charlotte Bobcats. Michael Jordan owns the Charlotte Bobcats.

    Look, you are preaching to the choir here. But Jordan was a kid. If he was saying that as an adult, it would be different.

    I was trying to be clever and apparently failed miserably.

    Sorry, I know you were hoping for people to say that their is a double standard for African-Americans, but that is not the situation in this case. Jordan was talking about a time in the past when he suffered a lot of harassment from whites. People who repudiate the mistakes of their past are rarely criticized, because they have already learned their lesson.

    I'm pretty liberal and I speak out about it consistently.

    If Larry Bird said that he hated all black people when he was a teenager, do you think it would be big news?

    I doubt it.

    If he said he still hated all black people it would be big news
