Dailies | Mark Cuban Talks Donald Sterling, Prejudices: ‘If I See a Black Kid in a Hoodie… I’m Walking to the Other Side of the Street’ (Video)

NBA team owner continues: “And if on that side of the street there’s a guy that has tattoos all over his face, white guy, bald head, tattoos everywhere — I’m walking back to the other side of the street”

Dallas Mavericks team owner Mark Cuban candidly discussed Donald Sterling and even his own prejudices in a recent interview with Inc. at the company’s GrowCo Conference in Nashville.

“We are all prejudiced in one way or the other,” Cuban said. “If I see a black kid in a hoodie and it’s late at night, I’m walking to the other side of the street. And if on that side of the street there’s a guy that has tattoos all over his face, white guy, bald head, tattoos everywhere — I’m walking back to the other side of the street.”

“In my businesses, I try not to be hypocritical,” the NBA owner added. “I know that I’m not perfect and I know that I live in a glass house and it’s not appropriate for me to throw stones.”

Last month, Cuban¬†condemned Sterling’s comments as “abhorrent” and “obviously racist.” He initially opposed calls to ban Sterling from the NBA, saying it would be a “very slippery slope” if the league forced an owner to sell the team.

When asked for comment by TheWrap, Cuban responded via email: “The interview says it all.”
