    Hardly criminal. He grew up.

    I'm all for calling out black people for their racism. I called out Barkely's comments about the NBA. But Jordan was a kid.
    And if we white people said anything about hating blacks "as kids" we would be labeled racist. But this is the vaunted MJ. He could dunk so that makes all the difference.

    Who's that? I haven't seen one political post in this thread so far. Was this meant for another thread?

    I'm not so sure you're right about that. Kids get a pass.

    Do you have proof that food nazis got rid of her? Don't you think that idea is just a bit over the top?

    Kids in general get a pass, but if a really famous white person admits that they were a racist when they were a teenager, they are smeared and labeled a racist in this day and age.

    He's an arrogant prick who shamed himself when he came out of retirement to play for the Wizards...

    I was at a casino and ran into him awhile back, I wasn't stalking him, we just happen to cross paths..."Hello Mr. Jordan, how ya doing this evening..."

    Looking me dead in the eye, "..."

    Nothing.

    "That good, eh?" I fired off as I started to walk away from him "WOW! Whatta f'n prick..."

    Paula Deen. Ok she wasn't a teenager (maybe), but she did change her ways.

    Her actions occurred as an adult in the recent past. Specifically, she owned a restaurant with a racist (and sexually abusive, not to mention alcoholic) manager and did nothing about it.

    The recent past? Over three decades ago. She changed since then. Can adults not change?

    The restaurant manager, come on that's business. The NBA allowed two owners with a racist past (Donald Sterling and Michael Jordan) into the league. Does that make the entire NBA racist?
