I get so sick of people using that tired ass “BUT WHAT DO I TELL MY CHILDREN???” argument.
I’m watching ESPN First Take and some athlete on twitter was upset that ESPN showed two gay men kissing. He used the what if children were watching argument, and these niggas on TV are sitting here giving his concerns validity.
Fuck your children, the world don’t stop just because your dumb ass haven’t told them that gay people exist yet.
200 little girls in Nigeria were kidnapped, people are being tortured and raped and killed every day, our civil rights in this country disappear more and more with each passing year, our entire planet will be unable to sustain human life soon with the way we’re treating it………. and with all that going on in the world you’re worried about two niggas who love each other kissing in a moment of joy on TV?
That’s what you’re worried about? You fucking moron.
Fuck you and your child.
All the revolting human beings who have reality shows paraded across the screen every week and you’re tripping off two men kissing.
It’s such a joke.
Anonymous said: I'm somewhat disappointed that the Clippers players only took a marginal stance on the situation even after more of the conversation came out.
I think that was moreso because of Doc Rivers.
Doc is a highly respected coach and leader, and I think the Clipper team trusts his judgement and direction. The younger guys may be more radical and gung ho about boycotting but Doc Rivers is more conservative. Doc didn’t even like the fact that they turned their jerseys inside out.
One of the huge dynamics of sports is how the athletes fall in line and follow the coaches wishes. They’ve been going to battle under his orders all year, and in this time of disorder and confusion I think they’ve deferred to Doc Rivers out of comfort and routine.
thefatgawd said: I never figured they would FORCE him to sell, but they can damn sure ban his ass from the stadium and fine the hell outta him.
The fine (1 million) and ban (only keeps him from physically being in the building but he’ll still have contact with the front office on the low) mean practically nothing.
Everyone knows he needs to sell, but everyone also knows the NBA can’t force him to sell without:
a.) a lengthy legal battle
b) setting a dangerous precedent for other owners
What really NEEDS to happen is for the public to force Sterling’s hand. The fans need to boycott, the sponsors need to stay away. When that revenue dries up Sterling will be pressured into getting rid of the team.
The problem is that as a society we love the fuck out of sports. Getting fans to stay away from the arena and not support the Clippers is a tall order.
Americans just aren’t conditioned for that kind of pleasure denial for the greater good. Americans aren’t used to inconveniencing themselves to make a social or political statement. Americans will only support a cause in the form of a Facebook like or a retweet. Americans aren’t willing to hardcore boycott the shit out of an organization for 6 months straight until they get what they want.
That’s what really needs to happen, and I don’t see it happening.
Therefore the NBA will have to possibly overstep their bounds and force Sterling into something.
