Skip to comments.Abdul-Jabbar on Sterling Reaction: 'Extreme Finger Wagging'
Posted on 04/30/2014 9:16:27 AM PDT by rktman
Though he supports the lifetime ban that NBA Commissioner Adam Silver imposed on the Los Angeles Clippers owner Tuesday, Jabbar is sharply critical in his column of the public's and media's eager rush to pillory Sterling for making shocking racial comments in a private conversation with his mistress, recorded without his knowledge, after they ignored more serious public wrongdoing by the real estate titan for years.

Oh please....Zimmerman was a racist...Paula Dean was a racist....the Duke Boys were racists.....It’s their MO.....So the NBA got 2.5 mill?? Nothing more than legal extortion.
Interesting how now the witches hammer is being wielded by finger waggers isn’t it? Isn’t it also interesting that she taped conversation over phone?
My respect for Lew Alcindor has skyrocketed.
How about the hypocrisy and double standards in their celebrity treatment of these BLACK racists?
Spike Lee has stated that white gentrification of Harlem has been horrible, has posted the address of George Zimmermans parents online to spur violence, has explained after visiting South Africa in the early 1990s, I seriously wanted to pick up a gun and shoot whites. The only way to resolve matters is by bloodshed. He, like Donald Sterling, is no fan of interracial dating: I give interracial couples a look. Daggers. They get uncomfortable when they see me on the street. Hes currently a host on NBA Radio on SiriusXM, stars in NBA commercials, and had a front-row seat to the Sterling announcement.
Then theres Jay Z. Jay Z isnt just fêted by the President of the United States. Hes a former part-owner of the Brooklyn Nets and, as an agent, works closely with the league. He was spotted recently at an NBA game wearing a necklace medallion for the Five Percent Nation, which sees black men as gods and white people as devils.
RE: My respect for Lew Alcindor has skyrocketed.
I wonder how he takes to being called by that name?
Muhammad Ali was not please with being called Cassius Clay....
Kareem-o-wheat can write?
They’ve known about it forever. Bottom line is someone wants to buy the team at fire sale prices now that they’re doing good. If I was Sterling I’d play every white guy on the bench and lose the last games. He could say “It dawned on me that the whites on this team aren’t being treated fairly.”
And in the meantime secretly sell of every part of the team possible, making it a shell organization.
Yeah, but that’s okay for them to act that way because of their treatment as slaves back in the 1980’s. I’m sure you remember that. They were issued a “Getsapass” documents.
Leveling the playing field so to speak? Or the white guys were/are suffering from reverse discriminalization. I mean discrimination.
To paraphrase Orwell. .In a time of stupidity, thinking is a revolutionary act...
Bravo to Kareem..he chose to think
Just doing my part to de-islamisize the US.
You’re outta control, He’s outta control, The NBA is outta control!!!!!!!!!!!! We’re all outta control! I’m takin a wizz here!
