People who are disappointed with Barack Obama have no right to be. It is they whom others have a right to be disappointed with. Instead of taking their role as citizens seriously, they chose to vote on the basis of racial symbolism, glib rhetoric and wishful thinking.---Never were more TRUE wors spoken.
Just in-ICE CUBES avaiable in Hell.
Nothing like a stint with uncle Sam to get one's mind off oneself as a victim. Survival and making it through develop a realization that RESPONSIBLITY is the biggest virtue I need. (I too spent time in the USN aboard ship and its a gift the more I look back on it).
True enough. I think the thought police aspect comes from the MSM and league. This tape- illegal as it is in California (need two to consent) isn't thought police but it is revealing as to the nature of the audience running to and fro propounding their own sainthood and casting stones at the evil Sterling (who happens to be a democrat and has given to them while the MSM has tried to portray him as a republican) and also the fact Shaquille Oneal was caught mocking an unfortunate disabled man ( and I am already aware it is getting little notice. So no its not thought police in the ultimate sense- but it reveals the thought and word police mentality of those who yelp the loudest. For a truly reflective NBA response google Mr. Kareem Abdul Jabbar on this incident.
I have and I consider them heroes. Them being treated the way they were was wrong. The things I mention above are wrong. Justifying present circumstances by referencing that time period is invalid. As the old old saying goes-two wrongs don't make a right. Content of character not color of skin.
True enough. However the duplicity involved and rank hypocrisy of an organization that allows Jay Z to flaunt his 5% necklace about black supremacy and that whites are devils and that knew decades ago about Sterling's views and did nothing is particularly revealing. Guys like Sterling still exist and I can guarantee they exist in bundles in pro sports. Guys like Jay Z do as well. When we pick and choose who is acceptable we play a dangerous game. Yes Silver can make him persona non grata but his double standard is glaring. And yes that illegal tape recording and the results of it are something I will remind people of when they go off on the NSA. You cant have your cake and eat it too. People see through his cra-.
Didn't you get the memo??? Only whites can be racists!!! Silly commenter.
Read "1984". Its not what is done. It is what is thought and said. That's all that matters.'s an example of NBA tolerance and depth of conscience. This states it all.
Started following the NBA in 1964-50 years ago. Then it was a small league with about an even distribution of black and white that paid probably 4-5 times the average mans salary. I would go see the players at the opening of a mall or store and get autographs before the players would have to go to their summer jobs. But those days are gone. The rich sue the rich, the average player is set for life. Getting close to these guys is as difficult as movie stars. But the worst aspect of it is the "group think" and the need to keep everyone thinking the same thing. Weeks ago Kobe Bryant came out and stated he wasn't convinced Trayvon Martin was innocent and that he independently made his judgments. Within 5 days he had backtracked and said Trayvon was a victim of racial hostility. Now Donald Sterling is taped by his who-e gf illegally and he is sent packing. I as a white man and Christian can be bashed from one side to the other- Bye bye NBA.
"Supposing there was no intelligence behind the universe, no creative mind. In that case, nobody designed my brain for the purpose of thinking. It is merely that when the atoms inside my skull happen, for physical or chemical reasons, to arrange themselves in a certain way, this gives me, as a by-product, the sensation I call thought. But, if so, how can I trust my own thinking to be true? It's like upsetting a milk jug and hoping that the way it splashes itself will give you a map of London. But if I can't trust my own thinking, of course I can't trust the arguments leading to Atheism, and therefore have no reason to be an Atheist, or anything else. Unless I believe in God, I cannot believe in thought: so I can never use thought to disbelieve in God." —C.S. Lewis
