The city of Charlotte has shown its true colors. Its got alot of growing up to do to catch up with the rest of the world. And Bob's still here as a part owner of the Bobcats. If he stays, will we be able to move on? Or does he need to get out of town first?
I don't know of ONE person who gives a flying f**k if Bob Johnson had a partial ownership in anything in this town. I know I certainly don't care. And no one has drummed him out of town. He is the one that sold his stake and moved on from ownership responsibilities (or whatever he did).
If the GENERAL POPULATION backed the Bobcats, we'd not be having this conversation. If the Bobcats filled TWC Stadium to capacity every game, then it would be a highly profitable business venture. If the product was better, than we might see this. And did you or Mr. Johnson stop to think that an historic economic downturn might have a hand in what's going on with attendance?
And The Observer simply reported what Bob Johnson said. "Irresponsible journalism"? For reporting racial bigotry? If Jerry Richardson said that Minorities were not supportive of the Panthers, f**king CNN would have that sh*t on the front page of their website. And yet you blame the newspaper?? Oh right... anything that casts a bad view of a minority member is divisive. I see....
People like you are the reason there is still a race barrier. Until there expectation to be treated like an equal, instead of being given "special" consideration , there will always be an unbalanced relationship, one side will be resentful, and the vicious circle of racism will continue.
