    Do women still wear pantyhose ?

    But Ms. Stiviano's real name at birth was Maria Vanessa Perez. According to court documents, Ms. Stiviano is the result from the rape of her mother by a black man.

    As you may have heard on the tape, Ms. Stiviano claims to be "mixed." I believe mixed up in the head because in 2010 she believed she was Italian and petitioned the court to change her name from Maria Perez to V. Stiviano.
    this might be a case of "stretching" the truth!

    His girlfriend broke the law by recording him without his knowledge
    Your last point is irrelevant

    You understand the NBA doesn't have any control over your life right.

    They do over his. He signed some rights away in his contract with them. (We do that all the time.)

    He represents one of the last hurdles in human evolution. He needs to be silenced, ostracised, shunned by decent people and forgotten when he dies. Same with everyone like him. That kind of tribalism should not be tolerated under any circumstances and needs to be confronted whenever it rears it's ugly, pox-ridden face.

    Since when did the NBA become the government of the US?
