Hillary Clinton’s campaign and her allies in media have been hyping the fact that billionaire Mark Cuban is supporting her and will be in the front row at the debate tonight.
What none of them seem to remember is a remark Cuban made in a 2014 interview which they would surely call racist.
The LA Times reported at the time:
Mark Cuban is honestly offensive in his words on black kids in hoodies
The words were filled with context and steeped with insight. The words came from a respected businessman with no documented history of bias.
But no how much you dressed them up, they were still words of racial stereotyping. Coming from the owner of a professional sports team, particularly in this current Donald Sterling-shrouded climate, they were words that should not go unchallenged…
“I mean, we’re all prejudiced in one way or another,” he said. “If I see a black kid in a hoodie and it’s late at night, I’m walking to the other side of the street.”

Isn’t that a bit problematic?
Has anyone ever asked Hillary to disavow his statement?
