Default The Josh Howard Flap

I'm sure everyone has heard about the infamous Josh Howard video by now; but on the outside chance that somebody here hasn't, they can click on the link below for a synopsis:

I couldn't care less about Howard's off-the-court antics.

Nor do I think it makes good social commentary on young, rich sports athletes who haven't a clue. It's truly irrelevant...

I didn't realize that Cuban posted all the hate emails along with the senders email addy.

Cuban posts, removes inflammatory e-mails

I think he's a goof but this last move shows some creativity. :thumbup:

Unfortunately there are probably lots of folks who do care and listen to what a guy like Howard has to say which is why we still have so much ignorance being perpetuated in this country. Just as I am sure there were a good number of folks whose knee jerk reaction was one of, "Well go back to Africa then if you don't celebrate my national anthem."

I am surprised that Josh Howard has not entered a rehab facility. After all isn't that typically what celebs do when they say or do something this colossally stupid in public?

I love how he went with the whole I went to a military school and some of my best friends are in the military so I am as patriotic as the next guy. Kind of how when someone famous gets called on the carpet for being a racist they pull the whole I love minorities, my next door neighbor is African American and I even have an African American friend so how can I be racist?

It was a nice statement drawn up for him by the Mavs PR Department though. :lol:
