Who cares?

No one said whites couldn't come to their games. Or shouldn't.

People SHOULD stop going. See how they can get paid all their millions for playing a game! That goes for ALL sports.

I read it. He was asked if it meant anything to him and he said "a little bit." We don't know from that if he actually knew what it meant. For all we know he had no clue what it meant, but didn't want to look stupid (which frankly, that's what his response sounds like ... a non-answer)

I'm a white guy, and if I could sit with Beyonce in courtside seats, I'd wear that medallion too!

Ok so let's speculate how the "He probably didn't really know what it meant" defense will work for a 44 yr old white business man when he does the same and responds that it does mean something to him.

Do you believe Jay Z has borderline brain functioning? I guess plate sized racist medallions are accidentally picked up at the mall while shopping for kicks.

Perhaps Sterling was just role playing with his GF when he made those comments?

That is why Japan, Germany, and even China are ahead of us in many technology fields that require real research. That is why the US will always be behind because we look to the past instead of the future.

That is not at all what I said. The Germans are very sensitive to what has gone on in the past, so much so that they have made many things that remind one of the racism that existed in their past illegal. However, the Germans do not pay teachers billions to think up such garbage as "white privilege". Instead they spend billions on engineering research, which is one big reason why their economy is the strongest in Europe, and one of the strongest in the world.

Black people in the US would be much better off if our government spent the money on jobs and education, instead of the government throwing that money away on sociologists to dream up ways that white people should be shameful for what some white people did to blacks 150 years ago. It only causes racial hatred, and causes blacks to look to the past, not to the future. Such garbage offers no plan to help black people prosper and to make a better future for themselves.

Thank you riaelise! Some walls just aren't worthy of a head banging, this guy's one of them. I too now see his posts for what they are as this person has no interest in gaining understanding or insight, just fanning.

I've bequeathed wisdom and insight that I knowingly and forcefully risked my life and freedom to obtain to this guy and have come to the conclusion that he can't be reasoned with, only argued.
