So because they couldn't get him in trouble for saying slope (which i had no idea was a racial term btw) they are getting him in trouble for this. Sometimes you just feel there's people out there looking to get offended so they can throw a bitch-fit over it all.

You've got to wonder who Piers Morgan sucked off to get that video clip, really.

so basically what he's saying is ...

i'm a scummy uneducated benefit dependent socialist who's happy to show what a jealous little pri*k i really am by making as much fuss as i can because this man has made money, is popular and dares to vote against what i was bred to vote for.

America found Morgan amusing for a short time, but are now getting bored of him. Which unfortunately means he'll probably be coming back over here.

I don't want to sound harsh or anything, and I'm not threatening to do it, but who would really care if he died?

You could be sitting in the biggest mansion in the world, but knowing so many people in the world despise you must get to you at some point.

Just heard about this, there's a big lash out against this. As a person of afro-caribbean descent the actual word doesn't offend me unless said in malice. I have friends of all backgrounds that say the word when singing along to rap songs for instance and that doesn't offend me one bit. These guys are not racist one bit they are true friends.

Then you have real racists like the owner of the LA Clippers, someone who owns a team with 80%+ black staff, fans and supporters making him money. He has even dated someone of colour yet has some incredibly racist views. Google it and you'll find exactly what I'm talking about. Those are the most dangerous type of racists, not only do they have these views but they pass it onto others like their children. I am happy the NBA banned him from games and that companies are pulling their sponsorship of his team. People like that should be set on fire.

Clarkson is a media whore but he isn't a racist.

That's what I don't get about that. That's a proper blindingly racist man, one who treats black people as lower class yet has a team full of black people. If whites are so much better why don't you just have a team of whites? Because you can't, he has racist 'principles' against black people but them breaks them because he knows a white team wouldn't work! You'd like to think that someone in his situation, working with so many black people couldn't be racist, because after a bit of getting to know and making friends with them they'd break through his prejudices. Some people just can't be saved I guess.

True, some people will never change their views no matter how the rest of society evolves. For Donald Sterling to have been the team's CEO he must have attended parties where he hung out with the players, joked with them and even posed in photos. Yet he still carries such horrible views.

The good is that the NBA has fined him, banned him from games and the backlash has forced him to sell the team. The bad is that the team thanks to the very people he has those views against is now worth more than five times what he paid for it so he will be making a tidy sum.

Wow it's all kicked off this weekend. I f**k off to way-elles and back in the real world stuff happens.

Seems like people like the thought of getting outraged more than actually being offended. Agree with vectra, it's the way it's used than the word, I'm not offended when I'm called a jigga by the local youth, but when I'm called a jigga and get my jaffa cakes stolen then I get riled enough to complain about it on a social network.

I'd personally have him shot.
He could be grand master of the Ku Klux Klan but I don't care.
I'd have him shot regardless.
