Way too soon. With three hours to go before today’s big press conference by NBA commissioner Adam Silver, writer Eric Golub, recently relocated from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, has published some jokey commentary roping in New York Knicks owner James Dolan.
Never mind that Golub, via his Twitter profile, proclaims himself to be an “author of ideological bigotry, ideological violence and ideological idiocy.” This is no laughing matter. From his piece “New Yorkers Condemn Knicks Owner Dolan for Not Being Racist:”
The only hope is for people of all races to demand that Dolan become a racist. Otherwise, he will never sell the team. Over 50 years after Dr. King gave his “I have a dream” speech, there is only a nightmare for Knicks fans of all races…
If Dolan had any decency, he would follow Sterling’s less than sterling example of humanity and become a racist. Then he could be forced to sell the team, and the healing for Knicks fans of all stripes can finally begin.
This is our first sampling of Communities Digital News, a D.C. website that promises to “tell the whole story, 24 hours a day!” Moving forward, Golub might want to stick to interviews.[Photo of Dolan at September 2013 opening of TAO Downtown: Debby Wong/Shutterstock.com]
