Donald Sterling’s Candid Moment? It’s Business As Usual, And NBA Business Is Often Ugly

Source:  Dave D’Alessandro / Star-Ledger  / NJ.com

Adam Silver has a parade of laudable business partners that he inherited from his morally ambiguous predecessor, David Stern.

The new NBA commissioner has a business partner in Washington who doesn’t know the difference between a tax code and “class warfare,” who bribes bloggers, slugs fans, bulldozes the neighboring Chinatown population into Virginia so he can help put up more Hooters, and asserts that we should all be grateful for the honor of subsidizing his team.

And yes, he has a business partner in Los Angeles who is a slumlord that refused to rent to minorities because they are “not desirable tenants,” and because “black tenants smell and attract vermin,” and “Mexicans sit around and drink all day,” leading to a humongous settlement of a federal housing lawsuit; and who has some scary attitudes toward women, which has led to harassment suits and yet more settlements.

We can only remind you that everyone already knew that Sterling was a despicable human being. If you didn’t know it, you simply weren’t paying attention, or – like Stern and Silver and everyone else in the NBA – you chose not to care.

    Figures…ONE down…MANY more to go…..

    Eric Cantor is OUT! I am from Richmond. Don’t fall for the ookie-doke on the news…get the facts. Especially our people…we MUST NOT EVER TURN ON PRESIDENT OBAMA! THAT’S WHAT THEY WANT! WE ARE TALKING ABOUT PRESIDENT OBAMA’S LEGACY HERE BLACK PEOPLE!

    AND DEMOCRATS IN RICHMOND UNDERSTAND THIS. Truth is…unlike some states… in Richmond Republicans AND Democrats were able to vote in this primary…not just Republicans. Democrats showed up and showed out to make a point to SUPPORT PRESIDENT OBAMA! WE ARE TIRED OF THAT GET NOTHING DONE CONGRESS THAT ONLY SEEM TO BE CONCERNED WITH MAKING OUR PRESIDENT LOOK BAD.

    Do your jobs! We don’t send them to Congress to work in big business best interests or to only be concerned about hurting a sitting President. In fact, sitting Republicans all around the country are dealing with the same thing…AMERICANS ARE TIRED OF CONGRESS SHUTTING DOWN THE GOVERNMENT WHILE THEY CONTINUED TO GET PAID, TRYING TO STOP AMERICANS’ ABILITY TO GET HEALTHCARE, CUTTING ALL TYPES OF PROGRAMS THAT HELP STRUGGLING AMERICANS. ENOUGH! THIS IS THE REAL MESSAGE HERE AND I DON’T CARE HOW NBC, ABC, CBS AND FOX TRY TO SPIN IT.

    Some of the Republicans that voted in Richmond may be concerned about immigration, but trust me, our Democrats are sending a message to Congress. And remember, this is only the primary…that Tea Party guy could be beat by a Democrat in November.

    SEND THEM ALL HOME…AND ONCE THEY NO LONGER HAVE A PAYCHECK. AND NO HEALTH BENEFITS FOR THEIR FAMILIES…MAYBE THEY WILL THINK OF ALL THE AMERICANS THAT THEY HAVE HURT!

    WE ELECT CONGRESS…AND THEY NEED TO FINALLY UNDERSTAND WHO THEIR REAL BOSSES ARE…THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!
