    Like I said, you'll call anything racism because that helps you deny real racism.

    This is why racists get so upset when one says that only whites can be racist, it pulls the BS rug out from underneath them.

    Calling everything racist is premised on a denial of real racism and an understanding of what it is.

    Never, really? I find that very hard to believe. How about something you don't fear but really rather wouldn't be made public?

    So there you have it, folks, he has finally apologized.

    Now the next question is, should his fines and penalty be rescinded or not?
    Forgiveness is fine, but it would be a mistake for the NBA to go back on anything. From a PR standpoint.

It is a systematic pattern of behavior that is not likely to change at age 82.
    Most likely.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    The consequences were appropriate.
    Let's also ban the player who hit fans with a metal chair.

    That's ok. You keep defining the word any way you want to. I'll continue to laugh and mock.

    Some are claiming that he has harmed the NBA. How so?

    If you are one of the people who hold this view, please explain how YOU now think less of the league as a result. What is it about the league that is now held in lower esteem than it was prior?

    Maybe drop the penalties and keep the fines?

    The only racism you see is made up BS. You refuse to see real racism, how it harms society and how we, as a society, address that harm.
