If you want to write Mark Cuban (owner of Dallas Mavericks) to let him know what you think here it is:

Agreed. The fact that Cuban defended him on national TV..that he needed to be more careful with camera phones...is even more disturbing. He didn’t even comment on how vile his words were!

That's because Cuban agrees with what Howard said.

just like Coleman, Webber, David Cone and many others

Hmm, seems like you've got a pattern developing there.

I didn’t realize that he was found guilty

I guess OJ was framed, too. How much of a payoff did Kobe give THAT WOMAN, again?

You do understand that these are different cases right? To compare the two is simply stupid.

I agree.

His behavior is disgusting. Where else would somebody like him (with as little to offer) earn that much money? He is readily replaceable.

And, once again, we see the media double standard in this country. When John Rocker made offensive comments about New Yorkers, he was suspended a month, largely because of the media hysteria surrounding his remarks.

The media ignores this punk when he makes just as offensive remarks.

The NBA deserves to lose fans and viewers if this idiot isn't fine and suspended.

I absolutely abhor the street/gangsta self-aggrandizing, no-nothing, ebonics culture. I never have and never will have a problem with anyone’s skin color. I just hate a$$holes.

When I was a kid, black parents routinely educated their children to steer away from that sort of behavior, which was looked down upon universally in our community.

Just as the Hollywood / Madison Ave. culture has corrupted the broader US, the urban ghetto thug model has corrupted the mainstream black sub-culture. The common denominator, of course, is their left-liberal ideology.

"I have explained to him that cellphone cameras are not your friend and that what you think you said on camera is never what people will hear when it shows up on YouTube or TV."

I wonder if he also explained to him that only a pathetic, thankless jackass would diss the very country that allowed him to gain his celebrity and riches in the first place.

You hit the key point in your post. When you were a kid, there were black ‘parents’. In Baltimore, the illegitimacy rate among blacks has hit 90%. That is disaster, pure and simple.

Of course there are few black conservatives, because for most there’s nothing to conserve. No ideal of family, responsibility, sacrifice, honor, etc. It’s beyond sad.

The commissioner of basketball or whatever his title is should step in because Cuban is anti American too and won’t do anything-everyone should boycott their games nothing gets their attention like no revenue!

David Cone? Or are you talking about athletes?

Cuz David Cone is white. Coleman and Webber were innocent and that was one case, as were many others who were accused for reasons we can only begin to attempt to comprehend.

I disagree. The black sub-culture is by nature, very conservative, clinically speaking. Blacks tend to "stay on the reservation" and not stray far from their established status quo (such as it is).

Politically, blacks are more liberal because they were herded into a monolithic voting block by FDR and LBJ. The liberal Democrats engineered black public opinion to lock them into a state of perceived victimhood, and to rely on the Democrats as the one party that was on their side in America. They were obviously extremely successful with this.

There's a great deal of cultural memory extant among blacks. You may not readily see it among the hip hop gangsta generation, who are mostly the offspring of losers in my generation of baby boomers. But, it's there.

Blacks born before 1960 are well aware of the better nature of their people and history. Those of us who've never lost sight of that, and our collective American heritage, have things of great value to share with the younger generation.

Those of us with children, have already done that in many ways.

Like I explained to a friend the other night, blacks are a bit schizophrenic about America. I liken my people's mixed up mental condition to that of a rebellious teenager. The kid may tell you that he hates his parents, but you know it's not true, and somewhere inside, the kid knows it too.

Let this country be threatened with imminent destruction by an aggressor nation, and you would see black men joining the fight from every corner of America.

The point is, at the core of it, some blacks are living a dramatization of rebellion. Some aren't.

I’ll chip in on that one, plus give him the first year’s rent on a one-room shack.
