Semper Fidelis, Semper Liber.
Stolen fair and square from the Capt. Courtesey himself.I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.
What bothers me isn't his punishment per se. Not only is $2.5 million trivial to someone like that but i'm not a capitalist anyway, plus i have no sympathy for bigots. I don't know if i even believe "owners" should exist for pro teams. You have GMs, like college ADs, and that should suffice.
What bothers me is if he had made anti hispanic, muslim, gay etc comments, no punishment would have followed. We've seen that plenty recently whether from the anti hispanic arizona law or duck dynasty or anti arab/muslim comments that are too numerous to keep track.
Prejudice is wrong regardless of the target, and our society is completely hypocritical for demanding (don't forget that 4 sponsors dropped from the clippers after his remark) such punishment following anti black speech only.
He's also 80. I'm not sure it's worth getting upset if he's no longer owner.
The only reason blacks are the squeaky wheel these days is because there are more of them than other disenfranchised peoples (gays, Native Americans, etc), and they have brash, obnoxious leadership (Jackson, Sharpton, etc.). Hell, blacks haven't even been oppressed as long as Native Americans.
If the Bible had declared blacks to be an abomination, gays could close the gap...but no dice.
