    Michael Jordan: I was against all white people

    Paula Deen allegedly employs a racist as a restaurant manager. The NBA allows two racists to own teams, Donald Sterling and Michael Jordan. Does that make the entire NBA racist?

    It's not a point, it's a question.

    My understanding is that the NBA can't force the sale of the teams, and AFAIK Jordan isn't a racist.

    Deen could have fired her racist mgr

    No they did not. That is a lie. Deen said that she used the N word over 30 years ago, and she lost her job and was smeared because of it.

    Almost got into a fight with John Salley in the cigar bar of Drink! tall bastard needed to watch where he was walking...

    Frank Thomas, he's another prick, Ryan Sandburg HUGE prick..comes into my bar (in Wrigleyville, not mine mine, just one I was managing) give him and his 3 guests a round on the house, ask him if he'd mind signing an autograph on this collectable we were gonna auction off for a benefit for CARC (Chicago Association for Retarded Citizens) and he looks at me like I just smacked his wife in the face.... "No.." and turns back to his group without so much as another word... they finished their drink got up and left... A real gem...

    The racist acts of the manager happened two years ago.

    And she wasn't fired from any job

    Ok, to be fair, the NBA didn't know that Jordan is a racist when they allowed him to buy a team, but they did know that Donald Sterling is a racist when he bought the Clippers. Does that make the entire NBA racist?

    i can't recall using it but then I can't be held accountable for having read Huck Finn outloud as a kid, I might have. But using the word is interesting. There is a huge difference between Snoop Dog, Mark Twain, and Paula Deen in how it was used. If you can't see that then you should take a good English class.

    I believe that the former commissioner was just as racist as Deen was for allowing that purchase and for not being anything about Sterling sooner

    And Jordan *was* a racist, not *is* a racist
