Speaking about the Donald Sterling scandal with the Clippers, and how the country has evolved in terms of race relations, Cuban touched on a hot topic when he said, 'Were all prejudice in one way or another. If I see a black kid in a hoodie, and its late at night, Im walking to the other side of the street.'
...."In hindsight I should have used different examples. I didn't consider the Trayvon Martin family, and I apologize to them for that. Beyond apologizing to the Martin family, I stand by the words and the substance of the interview,"

I give up...no one is EVER allowed to mention black kids wearing HOODIES anymore, because one kid assaulted a man who defended himself as determined in a criminal court of law??
Grow a pair, Cuban.
Florida related story.
Take his team away LeBron!
Pray America wakes up
Did Cuban endorse Bloomberg for president?
So... who is doing the comparison?
Why does he apologize to the Martins?
Did the Martins claim offense?
The article doesn't say so - just that this remarks "led to" comparisons.
Trayvon was a thug and a gangsta wannabe. Cuban didn’t mention his name in the interview. He talked about hoodies. Is that something only Trayvon wears?
I’m so sick of this shit.
political correctness is beyond assinine. so now trayvon’s family has to be bowed down to every damn time a stupid “hoodie” is mentioned ?
how much longer are real Americans going to put up with this insanity ?
When will Jesse Jackson apologize to black folks for his fear of them?
What is a TRAVONMASRTIN,,,new sports car what us ut?
If my son looked like Trayvon Martin he would have assaulted Mark Cuban.
Guess she didn’t like the pancakes served at the church breakfast?
That black POs can flip a table..how she do with a burger?
Pardon me, are ‘they’ going to break out the stocks and pillories and possibly ‘The Gallows’ for Jesse Jackson?
I believe he made the exact same statement (HE didn’t even mention hoodies) about ‘Black Yutes’.
Lawdy! That is one, walkin’ ‘busted can of biscuits’!!!
What difference, at this time, does it make?
The thug Trayvon got his justice.
Cuban has more money than Sterling and will make it all better with donations.
I love the one-handed folding metal chair catch.
