During an interview with Lee Hawkins of the Wall Street Journal, NBA commissioner David Stern called Billy Corben's 30 for 30 documentary Broke mildly racist.
Actually, it's a lot of money for any socioeconomic group. So it wouldn't be fair to think about the image of a poor black kid from the ghetto. That isn't the prototype. The prototype is pretty sophisticated kids who've been guiding their way to get here.
Because so many of them are African American, I viewed the entire story as mildly racist.
This is about part for the course for Stern at this point, and it's more than a little ironic considering his implementation of an NBA dress code that could also be described as mildly racist.no comments
