Mark Cuban said that he’s feeling hesitant about voting to take away Donald Sterling’s franchise rights because he himself and probably everybody in the world is at least a little bit racist.
If I see a black kid in a hoodie at night on the same side of the street, I’m probably going to walk to the other side of the street.
Shit, not the old black kid in a hoodie thing that white people use as the least offensive concession of having racist thoughts. If I see a black kid with gang tattoos in a prison jump suit carrying a gun and yelling ‘come here, cracker, so I can pop you’, I will shift to the other side of the road. I am a racist! Still, it’s a point. Even though we don’t all have Mexican hookers to order to stop hanging out with black dudes in public, everybody is some innate level of hateful prejudiced bastard. So what business do the NBA owners have judging Donald Sterling so harshly as to take away his thirty-year long franchise just for telling his whores his color rules. Mark Cuban notes the hypocrisy in casting such a vote. Then he announced he will be voting for the punishment anyhow. It’s enough just to point out the right thing to do, you don’t actually have to do it. That can be a pain.
