Draymond Green Backtracks on Dolan’s Slave Master Mentality Quotes, Sort Of

You have to be very careful when throwing around quotes like “Slave Master Mentality”.

Unless you have some facts, you don’t want to label someone who is having a disagreement as a slave master.  It isn’t just disrespectful to that person, it is disrespectful to what slaves really had to go through and it was a lot more than getting kicked out of basketball game

Unlike Donald Sterling who had a history of racial discrimination and documented comments about how he viewed black people as inferior, Dolan doesn’t have a track record like that.

Here is Draymond trying to explain his comments on ESPN Radio via TMZ.

“I never said James Dolan has a slave master mentality. I said when you look at something and someone is doing something for someone and all of a sudden they can’t anymore, that falls under the slave mentality.”

Green went on to add he never said Dolan wasn’t a racist, and doesn’t know if Dolan is a racist, because he doesn’t know Dolan.

“I can’t say James Dolan is a racist. I don’t know James Dolan. Honestly, if he walked past me right now, I wouldn’t know who he is.”

That is semantics, because by saying Dolan is doing what he is describing, he is indeed saying that is the mentality he has.

He is right in saying he doesn’t know Dolan, so he can’t just lay that on him without some facts to back it up.

If someone has those facts, please point them out to us.
