    Brilliantly put. Unfortunately there are some people who are too far gone to listen.

    Of course, you only said she wasn’t wrong. You never said she was right.

    Don’t know the full exchange, but one statement was, “go back where you came from”.
    Some on social media suggested he meant go back to Africa, in a racist way. Others said he just meant go back to OKC, in an of the cuff remark.
    There was some legitimately racist shit dug up on the guys twitter account though, including the N word, so can’t exactly give the guy the benefit of the doubt. He’s a piece of shit either way.

    The only thing that I heard was said was "kneel like you are used too" or "kneel like you used too" and Westbrook responding saying he was going to beat them both up.

    I didn't know another guy got banned. I am sure a lot more was probably said. Even so, I can see how the above is racist. I took it differently at first before I heard he was being racist. I thought he was essentially calling Westbrook a bitch. But, dude was being racist. Then I saw it the other way. That's pretty fucked up to say.

    Im not sure it was Racist or not, but I am glad they’re dealing with it. I very much agreed with what the Jazz owner said.

    Utah Organization should pick up that 25k fined for Westbrook. I know it’s just pennies for Russ but might as well do it.

    I think he deserved the penalty though. Both parties the fans and Russ were wrong at least in my opinion.

    Unfortunately, bigotry and racism are always fueled from the top. Good to see it addressed from the top. Actions really matter, when dealing with these issues. Not just talk.

    He told Westbrook to get on his knees like he's used to.

    Westbrook said he took that as racist, which I don't get. I took it as homophobic.

    So Westbrook responded with he was going to fuck both he and his wife up.

    Turns out the fan is a complete racist douchebag on social media, but Westbrook didn't know that at the game.
