Excuse Us, WHAT?! Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban Says We're All A Little Racist!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooZportzBasketball

Mark Cuban had some interesting thoughts when asked about Donald Sterling's racism scandal!

Talk about HORRIBLE timing!

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was attending a conference in Nashville on Wednesday when he was asked about Donald Sterling's racism scandal and his ban from the NBA!

Well Marky Mark has never been one to keep his opinions to himself, and he basically replied by saying all of us, himself included, are a teeny tiny bit racist! Foot, meet mouth!

The always animated NBA owner went on to explain his ill-timed comments, saying:

"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. I'll move back to the other side of the street. None of us have pure thoughts; we all live in glass houses."

While it seems clear that Mark is simply trying to prove we've all rushed to judgements at some point or another, his comments drew TONS of criticism for the similarities between his description and the outfit Trayvon Martin was wearing when he was shot and killed.

Mark soon found himself apologizing to the Martin family for his comments, but he also says that he stands by everything he said! He took to Twitter and said:

We're definitely hoping Mark's heart is in the right place here, but one thing we know for sure is the timing seriously couldn't have been any worse!

To say racism is a touchy subject in the NBA right now would be a HUGE understatement, and Mark probably should have thought twice before making such controversial statements!

    don't say "hoodie" or the negroes will lose their minds. I'm sure aids infected magic Johnson will be all over that. our family has decided NOT to go to any more Bulls games we'll be Blackhawk supporters from now on. screw the Nazi-Negro Basketball association.

    The substance of Mark Cuban's interview is correct. Might not be politically correct … but correct no less. Individual life experiences make humans develop some level of prejudice/ racism.

    He's 100 percent correct! Everyone is a little racist at times. The difference is the mass majority of people keep it to themselves in an attempt to respect other people. Anyone who's lived a full life and claims to NOT have any prejudices whatsoever, must also be able to walk on water. Either that or they are simply full of shit.
