Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban Makes Controversial Statements

The owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Mark Cuban, is known for making bold statements, but did he cross the line this time while at a conference hosted by Inc. Magazine in Nashville? 

When the name Donald Sterling was brought up at the conference and the issue the NBA is currently facing with Sterling, Cuban had this to say about himself.

“If I see a black kid in a hoodie on my side of the street, I’ll move to the other side of the street. If I see a white guy with a shaved head and tattoos (on the side he now is on), I’ll move back to the other side of the street. None of us have pure thoughts; we all live in glass houses.”

These comments come just weeks after the NBA suspended the disgraced owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, Donald Sterling, for life after the comments he made about black people. In Cuban’s defense, he say that he is not advocating racism, but that we all have flaws and preconceived notions of others.

Cuban would not state if he will vote to ban Sterling from the league, but said that he does have his mind made up on the issue.

We ask, what do you think of Cuban’s comments? We they race motivated or was there no evil intent in his comments? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
