Mark Cuban’s Fellow “Shark” Kevin O’Leary Sticks Up For Him

Behold Mr. Wonderful

I’m of the camp who believes Mark Cuban’s comments about race and prejudice were completely blown out of proportion this week. If you had actually listened to the remarks in their complete context, you’d realize that Cuban was actually railing against racism, while asking us all to be honest about the biases that we may have, whether we like them or not. His viewpoint may not have been communicated in the most ideal way–it was muddied by the “hoodie” anecdote–but the point is taken…and Donald Sterling 2.0 he is not. My fellow Daily Surger Jerome Hudson may disagree, but spirited debate is what we’re all about here.

Now, Mark’s fellow “Shark Tank” entrepreneur Kevin O’Leary is sticking up for him. And when “Mr. Wonderful” speaks, you should listen.

As a bonus, here’s what Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon had to say about the uproar over on ESPN’s “Pardon the Interruption”:
