    Explain. I don't see where Sterling violated the Constitution. He can say what he wants. As I explained in the previous post, his apparent racist beliefs never affected his actual business decisions involving the team. This is evidenced by the fact that he employed only the second black GM, currently employs a black coach, employs a mostly black team, etc, etc.

    I ask again.

    Do you think people should not be allowed to demand punishment for an opinion they disagree with?
    You should be allowed to say or think anything you want and I think demanding punishment for people you disagree with makes you a fascist moron.

    Demanding punishment is a part of being able to say or think what you want. Or, is that only applicable when someone says despicable things?

    In Nazi Germany the general public looted and ransacked Jew owned businesses and you are on the same path here.

    No one is looting or ransacking. We are simply using our free speech; something you don't seem to like all that much.
