Gilbert Arenas

I Forgive Donald Sterling

Despite the fact he trashed Magic Johnson and called Anderson Cooper a racist ... there's one man who says he FORGIVES Donald Sterling -- former NBA superstar Gilbert Arenas

Agent Zero went to Instagram after Sterling's attempted mea culpa on CNN last night for the previous racist comments he made -- and said, "I'll be the first to accept ur apology."

Arenas continued, "As a man who's made a mistake or two in life I know how hard it is to look at your self in the mirror when you let so many ppl down."

"But for anybody who can't and won't accept his apology u need to look in the mirror because were not perfect..forgiveness will destroy racism not more hatred."

Of course, Arenas has been through his share of off-the-court issues -- including a felony gun conviction and illegal possession of fireworks.  

So far, he seems to be the ONLY one who accepted the apology.

I am a black man and have conversed with many other black men and women and we all have an understanding regarding the underbelly of this entire saga.

Mr. Sterling indeed errored but the media has played a major role in this fiasco. White guilt always plays a part in these types of situations. Corporations which are headed by white people must appear appalled when anything remotely racist is uttered by a fellow white person.

What Mr. Sterling stated was tame compared to what is still be uttered by a many white people in this nation.

Nevertheless, let he who has no sin cast the first stone!

I too forgive Mr. Sterling!!!

That's funny. The only NBA player, current or former, just happens to be the one with mental problems. Not a good look. Lol!

harvey is racist    

why is it that black people are always the ones that are expected to forgive and accept these racists when they do or say something?

I mean how come no one called on jews en masse to forgive mel gibson?? he insulted jews years ago and they still havent forgiven him. he can give them all his riches and they still will say eff him. ...as they should. No one is telling them that they are obligated to forgive him.

But the minute someone insults or denigrates black people...first of all , the first person to come to their defense is ALWAYS another sellout black person...then soon people start attacking black people for being the cause of the racist's action..and then demand that black people forgive the person. If blacks refuse to do that en masse then all of a sudden it becomes "see, we told you that black people are hateful". The victimizer then become the victim and the original victims of their racist diatribe and actions become the victimizers.

This doesnt happen with any other community. Beanie man said eff gays 20 years ago and he's still being protested today and having visa problems even though he has apologized millions of times for it.

SMH . IT pisses me off.

harvey is racist    

Out of every group it seems like blacks the ones that just want to accepted and embraced by everyone..even if they are racist and thinks so little of the community. ..a bunch of "please just love us" -ass people.

blacks seriously need to start having some dignity and self respect and say eff you, we dont want you or accept you anymore .
