jaylectricity: HawgWild: So one lousy comment is all it takes to ruin a lifetime of achievement? God, we are soft. Look, this guy has helped employ African-Americans for three decades. Good grief, he made a bunch of people millionaires! Cut him some slack, Jack! It ain't like he said black people were better off as slaves or something.

Correction. African-Americans helped make him billions.


Here's the part that I can't believe isn't being talked about more:

[Sterling]: You just, do I know? I support them and give them food, and clothes, and cars, and houses. Who gives it to them? Does someone else give it to them? Do I know that I have-Who makes the game? Do I make the game, or do they make the game? Is there 30 owners, that created the league?

There isn't JUST racism here, he's a self-important asshole.  People don't come to see his fat ass, they come to see the players play.  He isn't "giving" them anything... the players help make him rich.  This guy is an asshat on ALL levels.

This just in:

Organizations give awards for money.

People who are reprehensible will throw money at organizations to be able to say "look, I'm not a bad guy!"

This is why it pays to have a ton of money - if you don't have that, then you have to actually make an effort to help people in order to not appear like a jackass when you say jackass things.

Arkanaut: Yeah, prolly.  It still boggles my mind that someone who has a problem with black people would be in the professional basketball business though.


It surprises you that a racist would want to "own" a bunch of physically-gifted black men?

Arkanaut: Darth_Lukecash: FTFAIt is not known if the recordings have been doctored or altered.

Wow...is ESPN bending over backwards here? Or is it just me?

I think Sterling's lawyer has been trying to insinuate that it's a fake that Sterling's ex-girlfriend released to get back at him.


I'm willing to put down a 10-quid note at Lloyd's to say either him or the ex-girlfriend will go Full Metal Snowden/Manning/Assange and start to release info that the NBA Leadership (along with Stern) isn't exactly NAACP material.

Wait, the NAACP was planning to give Sterling a lifetime achievement award in the first place?

Why?

Hasn't it been a well-known fact for years that he's a huge racist who dislikes blacks and Mexicans?
