Mark Cuban was the talk of the media yesterday after an interview was released where he admitted to being a bigot.
“I know I’m prejudiced and I know I’m bigoted in a lot of different ways. If I see a black kid in a hoodie on my side of the street, I’ll move to the other side of the street. If I see a white guy with a shaved head and tattoos, I’ll move back to the other side of the street. None of us have pure thoughts; we all live in glass houses,” Cuban said.
Well now Cuban is apologizing to the family of Trayvon Martin, after realizing people would make the correlation between black men in hoodies and Martin’s murder. Cuban tweeted, “In hindsight I should have used different examples. I didn’t consider the Trayvon Martin family, and I apologize to them for that.”
He added, “Beyond apologizing to the Martin family, I stand by the words and substance of the interview.”
