  • Woke Capitalists Pandering To Colin Kaepernick And The ‘Social Justice’ Movement Will Never Win

    The Federalist ^ | 09/17/2020 | By Emily Jashinsky
    Colin Kaepernick is right about one thing—the NFL’s new social justice messaging campaign is best described as “propaganda.” Kaepernick’s dissatisfaction with the league’s explicitly pro-Kaepernick efforts, however, should be a major lesson for other woke capitalists. Absolutely nothing short of dismantling the capitalist system will satisfy their detractors.Corporations can go to great lengths to mollify critics, but those critics will never be pleased because their worldview is ultimately rooted in radical anti-capitalism. Mark Cuban, for instance, should recognize that Kaepernick and the leaders of Black Lives Matter do not see him or Roger Goodell as allies, no matter how...

    Despite near-daily efforts to show America how woke they are, or, because of it, the NBA’s playoff ratings are still tanking. “Weekday afternoon games have certainly hurt, but the first weekend of the NBA Playoffs was no ratings bonanza either,” Sports Media Watch reported. Viewership on ABC is down 23 percent and the numbers are down 20 percent overall compared to last year’s playoffs “The Lakers’ win ranks as ABC’s least-watched playoff opener in five years (2015 Pelicans-Warriors: 3.49M), with the caveat that this year marked the first time since 2004 that it did not air a game on the...

    by Greg Reynolds A black NBA player reportedly made a shocking racial remark to a white NBA player after a heated confrontation during a game on Friday night while the players were wearing jerseys that had special social justice phrases printed on the back. “LA Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell and Dallas Mavericks Slovenian star Luka Doncic got into a scuffle last night that ended with Harrell calling Doncic a ‘bitchh ass white boy,'” Outkick columnist Gary Sheffield Jr. wrote. “The solution here is simple, even if many won’t like it: the NBA has to suspend Montrezl Harrell and send...

    The Washington Times ^ | Friday, August 14, 2020 | Douglas Ernst
    Mark Cuban says critics of the NBA’s Black Lives Matter activism should focus on Fox News’ ratings before the league. The Dallas Mavericks owner says a 4% dip in ratings for the league has far more to do with Joseph R. Biden’s presidential campaign than politicized programming alienating fans. “Lol. You do realize that was the day @JoeBiden picked @KamalaHarris?” the billionaire tweeted at Fox Sports Radio’s Clay Travis on Thursday. “Nothing makes a Fox News viewer want to get lied to more.” Cuban’s comments failed to take into account strong ratings for baseball and hockey despite the coronavirus pandemic....

    Mark Cuban told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he will vote for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden over President Trump in November, arguing that Trump "only wants to run a campaign" while Biden "wants to run a country." The endorsement comes as Biden continues to expand his lead over the incumbent in recent polling, including a New York Times-Sienna College national poll finding the former vice president enjoying a 14-point edge, 50 percent to 36 percent. "Donald Trump doesn't want to run a country. He wants to run a campaign," Cuban told Hannity on Tuesday night. "Joe Biden...
  • Mark Cuban on if Mavericks kneel during national anthem: ‘Hopefully, I’d join them’

    Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said kneeling during the national anthem wouldn’t have kept Colin Kaepernick off an NBA roster. That was a questionable claim that nobody tested. No NBA players emulated Kaepernick’s controversial demonstration (which protested racism, particularly through police brutality). But Cuban is now even more directly supporting players – particularly on Dallas – if they kneel during the anthem. Cuban, via ESPN: “If they were taking a knee and they were being respectful, I’d be proud of them. Hopefully I’d join them,” Cuban said. NBA rules state that players and coaches must stand for the national anthem, but...

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban delivered a message for “white people” on social media in the wake of the police-involved death of George Floyd and the protests it sparked. Cuban, who was in Dallas on Sunday to participate in a vigil to honor the memory of Floyd, tweeted a letter from Emerson College president M. Lee Pelton and wrote that white people need to make a change in their lives. “Dear White People: We are the ones that need to change. This is not one man's story. This is almost every black man's story. Which is why the problem is...

    Dallas Mavericks Owner and billionaire investor Mark Cuban pushed back Wednesday on Tesla CEO Elon Musk for reportedly calling states' coronavirus shelter-in-place orders “fascist.” “Anything that negatively impacts Tesla, Elon hates, period, end of story,” Cuban said on “Fox News @ Night” on Wednesday. “I don’t think he has other people’s interests at heart. I mean, I don’t really know him at all, but that’s just my take.” During an earnings call on Wednesday, The Verge reported that Musk said, “The expansion of shelter-in-place, or as we call it, forcibly imprisoning people in their homes, against all their constitutional rights,...

    It looks like one big-name businessman isn’t allowing the coronavirus to dim his hopes on America’s economic strength. The Hillary Clinton supporter, billionaire Shark Tank star and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban stated in an economic-based interview on a Fox News podcast Fox News Rundown that “We've had a taste of socialism right now ... giving money and redistributing wealth ... that's okay.” But Cuban didn’t put his stock in socialism: “‘But, I think we are truly going to see the best of capitalism when we come out of the other side, because this is where people are going to...

    Despite the fact that politicians like U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and presidential candidates U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) have made it a point to call out the top 0.1%, not everyone agrees with their philosophies. Billionaire Mark Cuban implied that had they been as successful as him, they might not have as much to say about the ultra-wealthy. He remarked that AOC’s criticism of capitalism is “headline porn” and noted the fact she started a business, a now-defunct publisher called Brook Avenue Press. “Bernie Sanders has a book business, you know, Elizabeth Warren...
