No need to hide, he is an 80 year old who lost it because of jealousy. Real wise guys don’t fall prey to gold digging bunnies like that. Come on Sterling…….tell the truth, you said those things out of stupidity and jealousy. He can’t be racist if he owns a basketball team. Black people like me should try and help this poor old man instead of demanding his head on a spike. He deserves a second chance after a full apology. Racism should be treated in a way that other racists don’t get hardened because of the punishment dished out to sterling.

Ask someone if race is just a matter of skin color. They’ll probably say yes. Next, ask them if they think blacks are better basketball players than other races. They’ll probably say yes. Finally, tell them that the logical conclusion, based on what they’ve said, is that getting a tan will make a white or an Asian a better baller. “Does not compute” mode will then kick in.
