    "I mean, we're all prejudiced in one way or another. If I see a black kid in a hoodie and it's late at night, I'm walking to the other side of the street. And if on that side of the street, there's a guy that has tattoos all over his face -- white guy, bald head, tattoos everywhere -- I'm walking back to the other side of the street. And the list goes on of stereotypes that we all live up to and are fearful of. So in my businesses, I try not to be hypocritical. I know that I'm not perfect. I know that I live in a glass house, and it's not appropriate for me to throw stones."

    If the vote to throw sterling out of the nba is a secret ballot, it could be veeerrrryy interesting.

    The owners don't really want the league to have power over them... This case is precedent setting.

    100% correct but of course there will be a firestorm.

    Its late at night and a black male between 15 and 35 is walking towards you. The mother fucking odds say you WILL be attacked. But lets forget about stats. Those damn mathematicians and their scams.

    Jesse Jackson is traveling the country with a tough anti-crime message that he is delivering to inner-city youngsters. In Chicago he said, "There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery -- then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved."

    Hoodie was definitely not the wisest choice of words. It's going to distract from his point, which is 100% correct and open him up to a shit storm of deflection.

    They have no choice about the power structure. They might all claim they "own the team" but the fact is they own an NBA franchise which come with a whole different set of rules and laws.

    Sterling is going to sue and the case will sit unresolved for another year.

    That's a reasonable amount of time to see if what all the critics say is true, that it will cause player protests, sponsors leaving etc...

    The most annoying thing about this story is people claiming 'it's bad for business, so you can do whatever you want' with zero proof.
