Or do you think all black people are thugs?
It appears you think just as Sir Charles..."This is a black league."
I disagree with Charles. On a lot of things.
And where did I say thugs were strictly black?

I think Donald Sterling's freedom of speech/privacy has been violated by the Media and the NBA. This is a public witch hunt initiated by the release of part of a secret recording made for possibly nefarious reasons, over a private matter.
freedom of speech
the right of people to express their opinions publicly without governmental interference, subject to the laws against libel, incitement to violence or rebellion, etc.
Also called free speech.

This penalty was excessive. He expressed an opinion in private. It is irrelevant to the bigger world; no one's business.

Just imagine if everyone that heard this conversation, just laughed, called him an idiot and then moved on and got on with their lives.

He made the statements in private! I don't care about this creep, but it does seem like Nanny State on steroids!

This was the right thing to do but was illegally obtained.
You just can't record someone off the record and then use it to destroy someone.
The person who recorded this without his permission should be in prison.
Sterling is a democrat for the record.
