Amendment I Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Amendment IX The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
Is the constitution just a GD piece of paper ?
Does it only apply some of the time ?
Be it Barkley or the clipper owner.
Free speech is FREE SPEECH.
Whether or not people agree with it or not.
People have the right to say what they think regardless the kangaroo courts of public opinion.

You can choose to be a lot less violent and have less kids, that IS something that you can control. How? Very simple, just have a few athletes do so on African TV. tell them about the problems and responsibilities of having kids, in other words, educate them(the thing about poor people is that they tend to lack common sense, so you have to make an effort to educate them). In the end, that's all that's required really. If you want more motivation, read what I've said in the last 30 posts or so, and very importantly, read everything in the links that I gave. Now broadcast what I've said on their TV, and that's it.

I'd love to see him sue the NBA.
Yeah, I can't believe I'm agreeing to wanting a billionaire to have even more money, but I do, completely. It was a private conversation (well, I think we all know every conversation over the phone isn't exactly "private", *cough NSA *cough), and he's been banned for life from the NBA and is being forced to sell his team? Like I said earlier, I'd lawyer up BIG TIME.
Watergate was private. Monica Lewinsky was private. Snowdens info was private. When private things are made public, they are handled. Welcome to the world chimp brains.

Larry Bird was making a generalization according to His perception of athlete. I disagree that the best are black. There are outstanding athletes of all colors in all sports. To say otherwise is ignoring the talent of many gifted people.

Funny how no one made a thread when Donald Sterling made those comments, but as soon as Charles Barkley said that it was a black league, the conservative trolls crawled out from the woodwork in full force.
Sadly this sort of behavior does not surprise me anymore on this site.
BTW Charles Barkley is 100% right, the NBA is a predominantly black league.
