Aren't those folks usually at sports bars? Seems like a risk one knowingly takes when going to places that focus on getting everyone drunk. Sorta like playing hockey and not expecting to be slapped around.

They are in any downtown where there are sports stadiums or on college campuses, or just in college towns in general. Some cities are pretty bro heavy, too. Chicago and Boston are two metros where it's easy to run into packs of drunk bros almost anywhere, on any night of the week.

Why can't you change your way of thinking?

What if I thought all old white men were pedophiles?
Is that fair?
Your weight doesn't result in murder, rape and direct result in Americas decline.

Your reading comprehension problem strikes again. This is becoming your defining feature as a C-D poster.

All white guys with tats and a shaved head are extemist skinheads? That's racist or something.

Yep. I'm not a Cuban fan in any way. but if you listen to all he said, and not just what was reported, he was talking about how it is GENERALLY NOT RIGH T, but we all have our prejudices and fears. While it may not be right, it's a reality. Maybe as soon as we realize that (according to me, not Cuban) we can get past it. Ignoring it and screaming racist does no good.

What Cuban said was extremely stupid. Not only were his words poorly put together, but the timing of it was just bad. Now people are going to begin to speculate as to who his allegiance is to in this Donald Sterling situation.

To me I don't care who is on the other side of the street with me, if I am out at night, I would be leery of anyone walking by me or near me especially depending on where I am at. If it's broad daylight, depending on where I am at, I like my chances unless of course if it's a gang walking by me and so for me personally I wouldn't necessarily be ready to walk on the other side of the street. With that said, I have certain cultures that I do not completely understand and as a result I don't always interact with. I don't believe that makes me prejudice, I think that makes me ignorant to that culture. It's a difference between accepting not knowing anything versus assuming something. And I think that's maybe what he's trying to say. He doesn't seem to know how to deal with those individuals who have cultural differences than him and how to relate to that, which is understandable. I don't really believe Mark Cuban's racist but I think he is trying to find a way of defending Sterling and it's just no way of accomplishing that.

Doesn't matter if it's fair. If that's what you think, that is what you think. So what?

The president of our country does not walk down a dark street wearing a hoodie, I'm a white guy with a full head of hair with no tattoo's, that is apples compared to Cuban's oranges.
