In Donald sterlings defense didn't it come out that he was senile and mentally incapable? Sure he's racist as history has proven but I'm fairly certain he has no idea what is going on...ever. His wife is by far the more offensive of the two of them as she herself is quite racist yet still has the mental wherewithal to… » 8/20/14 10:51am Today 10:51am

The journalist (something gawker writers would be astonished to find out is an actual job instead of just doing write ups based off things they read on reddit) obviously isn't affected by that but all those people? "We were told that the press would be okay to be… » 8/18/14 10:44pm Monday 10:44pm

Well at this point anything the cops release other than "I shot a nigga" is going to be treated as a lie and cops covering for cops. He absolutely did not deserve to be murdered and he definitely did not deserve to be shot. That being said with tempers (understandably) flaring right now it's best not to add fuel to… » 8/18/14 9:06pm Monday 9:06pm
