The old guy who owns the Clippers basketball team decided to confide some racist comments to his girlfriend. In turn, she decided to record his every word. I don’t know what it is up with these people who are uber rich. They get used to everyone saying yes. So it comes as a surprise when somebody finally says no. And that somebody was the NBA. The NBA was like our policy is to not deal with complete idiots. You are going to sell the team.
The messed up part is he bought the team for 12 million in the 1980’s. And now he might sell them for 2 billion dollars. That would be really unfair if he wasn’t freaking old. I mean, there is only so much more damage he can do. One crazy thing about selling the team is he might not have to pay taxes. Another bastard move. Hopefully he spends it all on a one way ticket to his own private island
The straight dope:
As our society becomes more diverse then hopefully comments and actions like this will become a memory of the past. But from a money aspect all of us could use a closer look into how we pay taxes. The goal of tax should be to benefit society and ourselves.
