“I have no intention of debating the obvious: White privilege, institutional and systematic racism; it demeans its reality.
The NBA-ssociation is an association that may choose to disassociate from any member whose actions are deemed detrimental to the association.
As per the Clippers players and management working in a hostile environment base on race? Ask the for example former GM Elgin Baylor.”

“What institutionalized racism is occurring in the Clippers organization or any other organization? You're claiming this is a microcosm. Please explain.

Ironic considering that sports is one of the last vestiges of pure meritocracy.”

“I don't think the primary objective is just to bother this extremely wealthy racist. What is crucial is the response to his repugnance, that he becomes alienated and alone in bed with his billions.
We as well as the NBA(ssociation) has the right to disassociated with him.”

“Since 9/11 Right-Wing groups have killed 35 Americans which far surpass the number of Americans killed by terrorists motivated by Al Qaeda's ideology. These programs not unlike the "co-intell" operations utilizing various nefarious methods produce nothing but fear, dissension and disunity in communities of color.

I do take note that one of the communities under the NYPD surveillance watch was in Bedford Stuyvesant, Masjid At-Taqwa. Ironically they lead the fight "literally" to rid the community of the scourge of the crack epidemic as the NYPD drove by watching as those brothers put their lives on the line against committed drug dealers.

In fact the only police intervention was to arrest 6 of those Muslim brothers after they evicted cracked dealers from a bldg their used to as a crack den/brothel. http://www.nytimes.com/1987/02/03/nyregion/6-are-arrested-after-trying-to-evict-a-suspected-drug-ring.html

“You display a sterile distance from the repugnant matter at hand and I can only suspect why. Based on your logic the players' act of wearing their t-shirts inside out is nonsensical. That action had nothing to do with hurting the bigot owner, did it? And I do enjoy following the NBA, but one has absolutely noting to do with the other.”

“The "Montgomery Bus Boycott" inconvenience and hurt people many who DIDN'T commit any wrong. This must be the response to blatant racism, absolutely NO compromise. It continues unabated cloaked in secrecy and dog whistle politics. And when they slip up and it shows its ugly head the response must be overwhelming.”

aschiavo611 on Apr 27, 2014 at 21:33:42

“Again, boycotting the game(s) or walking away from the team would accomplish nothing and wouldn't hurt Sterling much at all. It'd be a nonsensical response to the situation. Perhaps you don't follow the NBA, which is fine, but you have to understand that this is not analogous to what you're talking about.”

“That's absolutely true, but not a relevant analogy to this issue. Their refusal to play would accomplish nothing except hurting people who DIDN'T commit any wrong, while not being punitive at all towards Sterling. The league administrative office bears the burden here of punishing him.”

“Everyone have been outraged by Cliven Bundy's racist rant. I, on the other hand value this man's honesty despite his profoundly nefarious feelings and under-education. He was willing to express his ignorance exposing himself to critique, reproach and possible correction. Unlike a significant number of the American population(closeted bigots) who hide and cherish their bigotry. Donald Sterling represents the majority, who secretly nurture bigotry and prejudice.”

“"He was willing to express his ignorance...."

He was willing only because he didn't realize how ignorant he really was.”

“I remember a time not long ago when Americans treated these then young girls(Venus and her sister, Serena) with almost contempt and loathing. The loudest cheers would erupt when they lost a point to a foreign player on an American tennis court.

I remember it vividly! How times have slightly changed. Every cheer they have earned by sacrifices made on and off the court and not by American birthright.”

“See people can still learn good behavior and get over ugliness they have been taught. It's great isn't it :)”

“I too remember this vividly. In 2001 when it was announced that Venus had to pull out of the Indian Wells tournament at the last minute due to illness, the crowd was not charitable. they booed and jeered not only at her but also at Serena, just because she happened to be her sister. That is the main reason the sisters dropped off that tournament from their schedules and in spite of being fined over and over again they did not want any part of it. That was/is their pride and I am happy they stood up for themselves. American spectators can be very obnoxious. Added to this Sharapova's father also made some nasty remarks about Serena while Maria was playing her. He was escorted off the court and Serena went on to beat Maria.”

“I actually appreciate this man's honesty as obnoxious as he is. I value him over the closeted bigots who insulate their bigotry in carefully crafted language and dog whistles. Those who are vested with the ability to impact the lives of those whom they loathe. The far-right, the overwhelming majority of the GOP, the people in three of the largest banks whose actions lead to the Department of Justice levying punitive damages for discrimination against Blacks.

The effects of such discriminatory policies are painfully tangible to its victims. Cliven Bundy is an uneducated ignorant brute whose impact is on his footprint on the land not Black people.”

“Yep, it's much easier to talk about the importance of these issues when the person on the other side isn't hiding behind euphemisms and the like to cover up what they are really doing to people.”
