Do Black Men Own 100% of Any Sports Team?

If there are well over one hundred major sports team in America - how many Black men own at least 50% of those teams? Are they all owned and operated by whites? Has any famous black sport male figure ever attempted to buy a sports team? If the teammates are making up to $20 million per year, then I wonder how much the owners themselves cash in.

Is it harder for a Black man to gain ownership of a sport team? If not, then why aren't more trying to do so?

Right, I heard that Michael Jordan wanted to take ownership of the whole team, but the owners told him no. I don't think they want blacks to take full ownership of major sports team. That little percentage Jay-Z and M.J own is not that much.

How is that a "dumb" question? I bet your're not on the Interracial Dating threads asking this same question.

The real question is this: why would you post such a dumb response to an fairly intellegent question? If you don't have answers then don't post anything.

I don'tthink they didn't want to sell there team to Michael Jordan to quote '"keep the black man down". he probably didn't want to because its a freaking pro sports team you have to bea fool to sell it. its just good business strategy. I wouldn't sell it to Obama if he asked. either way white people came up with the sport so obviously they were the ones who only played in the beginning. they had the money to start the league and teams. and when the sport took of to such a financial success your better off just keeping the teams cause. besides why would you sell something that bring in hundreds of millions of dollars

FYI MR..PRESIDENT MR STERLING IS NOT "IGNORANT". HE IS TRUTHFUL AND HONEST ABOUT THE PAST AND PRESENT US POLITICAL ECONOMIC SOCIAL SYSTEM AND MOST IMPORTANT PAST AND PRESENT "US WHITE SUPREMACY"/ BLACK LABOR CULTURE!! "THE KING HAS NO CLOTHES"
Mr. Sterling is a typical "EUROPEAN SETTLER COLONIAL BUSINESS MAN" operating on the land PIRATED FROM THE NATIVE PEOPLE AND DEVELOPED BY AFRICAN:"SLAVE LABOR" THROUGH GENOCIDAL TERRORISM !!!! LIKE HIS FELLOW EURO DESCENDANT BANKERS, MOVIE EXECUTIVES. INDUSTRIALISTS, POLITICIANS, CATHOLIC, PROTESTANT, EVANGELICAL AND OTHER "WHITE JESUS" RELIGIOUS LEADERS. The "WHITE SUPREMACY COURT" has ruled in the DRED SCOTT CASE THAT "A BLACK MAN HAS NO RIGHTS A WHITE MAN IS BOUND TO RESPECT"? What is new???? "THE MORE THINGS CHANGE THE MORE THEY REMAIN THE SAME"??? IT IS TIME THE AFRICAN AMERICAN BASKETBALL AND FOOTBALL PLAYERS STOP "PLAYING AS VICTIMS",,,, FORM AND CONTROL THEIR OWN MULTI- ETHNIC LEAGUES AND THEN MERGE WITH THE NBA AND NFL!!!!! PLANTATIONS SHOULD HAVE MORE THAN JUST "WHITE" OWNERS IN 2014 FORWARD OR THE BLACK HORSES DON'T RUN!!!!...... TALENT EQUALS CONTROL.??????? FOR THE SAKE OF JUSTICE YOU CAN THROW IN $$$TRILLIONS FOR "REPAIRATIONS" (REPARATIONS) 400 YEARS OF UNPAID BLACK "SLAVE LABOR" BEFORE THE NBA AND NFL!!!!!!!! YES, YES, YES JUSTICE AND AN END TO ECONOMIC APARTHEID!!!! Omari Tahir FOUNDER African American Heritage Museum and Culture Center and AFRICATOWN SEATTLE (SUPER SONICS).

Black men do not have an aptitude for business. They don't know how to accumulate money, only squander it. They are avid folllowers, not leaders.

BILL GATES, PAUL ALLEN AND STEVE BALLMER, are all cut from the same cloth!!! I was arguing with Mary Gates,(Bill Gates mother) when she was on the Board of Regents at the University of Washington about divesting from businesses doing business with APARTHEID SOUTH AFRICA? When I sued the URBAN LEAGUE LEECHES about their neo-colonial take over and subversion of positive youth activities, Bill Gates dad (Bill Gates Sr.) turned up as their Lawyer. The BILL AND MELINDA GATES FOUNDATION, provided the seed money for the 36 CONDOS AND FAKE “NORTHWEST AFRICAN AMERICAN MUSEUM”(NAAM). YES,“NAAM IS A SCAM”. the URBAN LEAGUE LEECHES then went bust with their neo-colonial take over of the “SMALL BUSINESS /CONTRACTOR’S RESOURCE CENTER”. So this is my response to the DONALD STERLING CLIPPERS PLANTATION EXPOSURE AND BILL GATES AND PAUL ALLEN’S MICRSOFT PARTNER STEVE BALLMERS PURCHASE OF THE LA CLIPPER PLANTATION FOR 2 BILLION DOLLARS($ 2,OOO,OOO,OOO)?

FYI
ARE WE CRAZZZZZZY????? STEVE BALLMER’S 2 BILLION COULD END ALL HOMELESSNESS IN SEATTLE? WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT ANOTHER WHITE PLANTATION OWNER WITH “BLACK LABOR”?? WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE STERLINGS, STEVEN BALLMER OR BILL AND HILLARY CLINTON OWNING THE LA CLIPPERS PLANTATION??? IF AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE 80% OF THE NBA AND 99% OF TOP BASKETBALL PLAYERS, WHY ARE NO BASKETBALL TALENT WHITES THE TEAM / PLANTATION OWNERS? YES ECONOMIC APARTHEID / PLANTATION POLITICS (HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS) IS STILL OPERATIVE!!!!! THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES, Omari Tahir
