SOMETIMES MEDIA MISSES BALL
NBA OWNER WAS RACIST ASSHOLE LANDLORD
What NBA owner Donald Sterling has done that should be in play is that as a landlord he wouldn’t rent to people near to my skin pigment or surname and lost a multimillion dollar suit because of his (extreme to some) feelings.
STICKS & STONES THEORY APPLY HERE?
As a San Francisco Policeman , I heard the worst thrown around in my presence. While most was uncalled for, these were crooks talking and my skin is far too thick. Still, I grew up in an era where at times you had to deal with being mucked over because of color.
MORE OF USA LIKE STERLING THAN YOU’D THINK
I’m of the opinion that expelled L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling and his views represent a bigger amount of America than any of you would feel comfortable in admitting. It has always been this way. Some people think that (this week) the Mexicans are taking over. Racism will never go away, not with education, not even with time, certainly not in this country.
RACISM ALIVE & THRIVING IN USA
When I was working in Louisiana in 2008 and Barack Obama was running for President, I saw a roadside sign saying something like, “We can’t let THEM takeover.” Without calling him the “N” word, the now two-time President’s cartoon-like drawing in the ad, you realized that’s exactly what “THEM” meant.
RACE HAS STALLED NATION
With the election of Barack Obama, race relations in this country are at a standstill, if they havn’t taken a backwards step. Not one to point fingers, but FOX News, besides being factually wrong with 84% of their climate control news, have increased racial tension in this country with some 30% of the population. In closing, I’m proud to be part of the 70% of Americans that does not long for the days of the Jim Crow south and Sean Insanity,
THIS PUTS END TO DONALD STERLING, NOT HIS VIEWS
I think that sub-headline says it all.
