    “Even though people who express racist ideas may be treated in the way Donald Sterling is being treated, that doesn’t address, for example, the impact of [anti-affirmative action Proposition] 209 — that there are proportionally fewer black students on campuses than during the 1970s.

    Why just blacks? Other minorities don't count?
    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.

    If he does, then some people on here (including this thread) should apologize for their anti-white statements.
    "Anti-white statements"

    Fair enough.

    Yeah, you know what I mean. Whites are the only ones that can be racist, right? That's why we don't have a free market.

    I know what you mean. Any social consideration of a social construct, and you think whites are under attack. It's nonsense. Why do you refuse to consider social aspects of a social construct?

    Whites are the only ones that can be racist, right? That's why we don't have a free market.
    The majority power (and, to some extent, minorities oppressing other minorities) can be racist.

    Society does not oppress white people. It does oppress black people. This is the reality that you refuse to see. It's what you ignore in order to claim false equivalence between being (justly) denied a school once and being oppressed every single day of ones life.

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

    Now the next question is, should his fines and penalty be rescinded or not?
    Um, the man is very wealthy, the fine was like a spitting on a public sidewalk violation or a parking ticket. Maybe he's learned something from all of this?

    Hey Mildsteel, care to share with me in which ways you felt marginalized yesterday and today? Ecofarm needs to feel validated for his racism.

    Feel free to share with us how you got lynched, or denied service somewhere, or your landlord invaded your privacy, or got fired/denied a job because of your skin color.

    Anything I forget, eco?

    The problem is how to know if it's sincere or not.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.
