Is any surprised he got involved??

Thanks Obama.

Did he really? SMH Phone Post 3.0

Yep. Spoke about Donald sterling. Looks like he took time from something important too.

Damn.

The backlash to this is a lot larger than I thought it would be.

Come on, Barry.

If a fucking white, Hispanic or asian president would not bring up this shit in an important speech, then a black president should not either.

10 pages minimum....

To be fair I think the press asked him. He could've just said no comment.

To be fair, if Donald Stirling did in fact make those comments, it is incredibly offensive. Also, who digs on Magic Johnson?

True but Obama seems to throw his hat in on anything black.

Obama is a known basketball fan. Why do you care? I don't like the guy, but to nitpick every fuckin thing he comments on is ridiculous. By the way he's 100% right on his comment.

It's not like a president hasn't brought up a professional sports franchise in a speech before.

Anybody starts noticing a pattern on things Obama comments on?

He was asked by a member of the press Phone Post 3.0

It's just more dribble.

Maybe anytime the press asks him about anything race related or about black people he should say "no comment" to satisfy you.
