Isn't Cuban Jewish? Either way, I'm sure he'll be portrayed as white...like Sterling.

I know this is going to shock you, but it's not up to black people to fix themselves to make you feel better about your racism. The president of our country is a black man. If that's not enough for you, that's on you. Not them.

The point is moot to begin with since the odds of Cuban walking down a street alone are slim and none.

Watch groups and activists need to be careful what they ask for, because eventually this will all come home to roost. We are going down a slippery slope where no one can say anything without someone else looking for a reason to be insulted. A lot of this nonsense starts in schools and universities and young minds are being molded to think this way and find insult with every word and thought they disagree with or isn't politically correct.

he only needs to fix something if he feels he has a problem.

Cuban is just speaking the truth and i whole heartily support him. It is about time we open up real discussion about racism. It seems like right now in America racism is a term only applies when it is against African Americans. Why is affirmative action not called racism? Because it helps American Americans. Cuban is saying what's on every single Americans mind but nobody has the guts to say it. This is not the way we move forward

Why should someone have to change to make other people feel more comfortable?

I have done that myself by losing weight,but all it did was make me feel resentful.


Why can't you change your way of thinking?

What if I thought all old white men were pedophiles?
Is that fair?

The worst group of people to encounter on the street are drunk young white male sports fans. They consistently harass people and get into fights and nobody ever calls the cops on them. They get away with obnoxious behavior that would land any person of color in jail.
