Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban went to Twitter Thursday afternoon to defend and or backtrack from previous comments made in an a recent interview to INC. concerning banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling and his racist comments.
“In hindsight I should have used different examples. I didn’t consider the Trayvon Martin family, and I apologize to them for that.
Beyond apologizing to the Martin family, I stand by the words and substance of the interview.
I think that helping people improve their lives, helping people engage with people they may fear or may not understand, and helping people realize that while we all may have our prejudices and bigotries.
We have to learn that it’s an issue that we have to control, that it’s part of my responsibility as an entrepreneur to try to solve it,” said Cuban on Twitter
