I feel everything should be fine from here on out as far as THIS situation goes. And if you do too....then I invite you to stop reading this. However, if you want to dive a little deeper into it with me. Continue on...
Get "shunned" by everyone, make 1 billion dollars now, since people are in such a hurry to get you out of the NBA, all while thinking because it is the right thing to do. Then, go hide and live some happy years, while everyone forgets about everything you did, because they're too focused on Basketball and it being the peaceful, perfect lala land, that everyone wanted. Sounds like a good idea to me.
I hope I'm wrong. I hope its just the Conspiracy Theorist in me. But its always a possibility. Plus, we always talk about how every aspect of the NBA(especially the Playoffs) is rigged.
THE BIG PICTURE
Earlier, I asked if there was anything else we could've done as people. We could've. We can. I feel we depend on those who are in charge way too much to get things done. We, the have nots, can be so powerful, but we don't know it. As sad as Adam Silver was that a man gave the NBA a bad look. I guarantee he felt great to be needed. Isn't that what people who are in charge need? To be needed?
When something bad happens, or something I dont agree with. Generally, I ignore it or dont acknowledge it, as that gives that situation power over me. I think a bigger stand was to be us stand together, ourselves and not go to the games, nor support them. Yeah...the players deserve our support. And the players who did play, wouldn't need it. If we stopped going to the games and the games were still going on, those players were still going to need to get paid. Who's paying them? Donald Sterling. Who isnt making money off the fans, who aren't in the seats, to cover the money he paid the players? Donald Sterling. Wouldn't that be a bigger statement? Instead, all I hear from everyone is they needed to do something because they wouldn't feel comfortable going to or watching the Clippers games. Then we just could've NOT gone. Racism is alive and well....and punishing them and letting them go into hiding is just showing other racists as long as they dont get caught or act like they arent, they can live perfectly fine. As I said, I'd rather know who I'm dealing with so I can avoid them, or know what I have to deal with when Im forced to work with that person.
That's just me. I just feel we should depend more on ourselves when we have these sort of issues in life. We have the power.
This isn't about black people, this is about the people. This is about a man who has embarrassed us all. This man holds back the human race with his idea of anyone who isnt white. He's so out of touch that he feels everyone feels the same way he does. You can't teach a guy like this a lesson....he's been thinking that way for over 80 years. Some form of racism will always live but we can do something about it and we should.
For evolution and growing as a race, I'm Brandon "Eazy" Moore and I wish you nothing but happiness, success and to always think outside the box. Love your life, chase your dreams and reach your dreams. Don't let anyone like Donald Sterling affect you.
