    Given the noise that the media are making one would think Osama bin Laden had been raised from wherever and had bombed the 9/11 Memorial. It is insane! It is political correctness gone insane. I have listened to what Sterling said and seen the limited transcript on TV. I have attempted to find a complete transcript of his remarks. I will say this. What I heard and read warranted none of the hysteria that has erupted on TV. What I heard and read was mostly directed at his "lady friend". What I heard and read warranted nothing approaching the treatment he is receiving, not that he really cares. What I heard and read is probably no worse than thousands of people express every day.

    It is my belief that there is not a living soul that does not bear some animus against a certain ethnic or racial group. I am not saying that these people are racist, I am simply saying that I doubt there is a single person who does not have some animosity against certain people as a group.

    I went to college with whites, orientals, Muslims, and blacks. I have worked during my career with all four peoples. I found out many years ago that it is much more likely to have animosity against a racial, or ethnic, or any people, considered as a group, than it is to have the same feelings toward individuals. I have no doubt that someone will accuse me of racism, it has been implied before. i will say this, there are worse things, in my opinion, than having racial prejudice; but listening to some of the talking heads on TV one would never know it..


    If anyone has found the complete transcript perhaps they would be kind and post it!

    I will add that there are some other rich white Democrats around here who think the same way as Sterling.

    I am not a sports fan. I never heard of Sterling or his team until this past weekend. I have heard of "shag" as you call him but only because of talking heads on TV; but I don't know anything else about him! Sterling may be a real dirt bag for all I know but the outcry over his remarks is political correctness gone wild. I don't believe even Fox News made as much racket over the Philadelphia baby killer Gosnell and they are the only one who covered him. Gosnell apparently concentrated primarily on killing black babies.

    I checked the second link on shaq. Of course he will get a pass. Blacks are allowed to make racist or abusive remarks because they are the "downtrodden"; they are allowed to beat up and abuse women because they are black!

    Several years ago, I went to a race relations class. A black student said that Black (and other minorites) cannot be racist because they do not have any power. (actully I think they have a lot of power- as a group)

    Then they got upset, because I said I was a minority - as I was the only white male in the class!

    Here is the insanity of political correctness. Did anyone hear mention of the young girl he buried alive?

    No of course they didn't, and neither did the PC idiots who are wringing their hands over this guy's death by heart attack. Who cares? Did any of these liberal numbskulls wring their hands over his victim's grave?
