 Sterling was forced out for the same reason John Schnatter was forced out of Papa Johns, allowing a racist to be the image of the company is bad business.  

Schnatter needed to be forced out anyway, simply for calling the shit he serves pizza.

That's a good reason to have for rooting on a team. It's cool to think what a small world it actually is. Now, I don't want to talk anymore about UMASS and the Frozen Four. They never had a chance. I think that team has a bright future though. That program has come a long way. I love the local college hockey scene.

This country was founded with the idea everyone should have equal opportunities of succeeding and not that everyone would have equal results.
I would hardly say that a nation with institutionalized slavery, where women had no right to vote, was "founded" on the idea of equal opportunity for everyone, unless you define "everyone" to mean "the privileged few."

That's a new concept liberals are trying to force down our throats.
Then I suppose history will file it next to other concepts liberals forced down our throats, such as the abolition of slavery, voting rights for all citizens regardless of race or sex, free public education, and Medicare.

I'll spell out my opinions for you.

Morally .. being a racist is worse than paying for a handy in this case
Ethically .. being a racist is worse than paying for a handy in this case.
I would tend to agree. However, morals and ethics are subjective and a personal matter which are unique to everyone. So that's a moot point.

Legally .. being a racist isn't worse than paying for a handy in this case.
Correct, you got one right.

Financially .. being a racist is WAY worse than paying for a handy. And this is what gets your NBA team sold out from under you, not any of the other stuff.
Most people aren't rich and don't own professional sports teams. Most racists don't and won't suffer financially. Especially when they're baited into controversial conversation and secretly recorded, so it's a moot point also.

So again, you're position is that being secretly recorded being an asshole is worse than actual illegal activity?

Both were secretly recorded.  Both are illegal.  Business owners are not allowed to ban people based on race.

But then you are forcing your will upon people who don't want it. This country was founded with the idea everyone should have equal opportunities of succeeding and not that everyone would have equal results. That's a new concept liberals are trying to force down our throats. Not that it matters but f you took 100 percent of the money from the 1 percenters it still wouldn't be enough to pay for the social programs that liberals want funded.   



But our society doesnít have equal opportunity. Ivanka Trump and  children in Flint Michigan donít have equal opportunities.  Restoring the gift and inheritance tax would improve this.

Being the top 1% have more wealth than the bottom 90% they could afford all the programs.

And I have no problem with people giving money to art museums, but that should not be at the expense of essential services such as school lunches   (eg not tax deductible)

it isn't a liberal PC argument at all .. it's a purely capitalist Ayn Rand argument. Sterling was costing his partners in the league money so they kicked him out. Kraft won't .. so he won't get anything other than a slap on the wrist, if that.
