    Wow!

    Words spoken in private, and illegally recorded, can be used against you to lose your lively hood, and be fined two and a half million dollars.

    This isn't the America I grew up in!

    If this is justice, and equality,-we'd all be fired, and fined. This is pathetic!

    You'd think Sterling dropped a bomb somewhere.

    To the people of America! Quit nursing hurt feelings, and get to work!

    His 1st amendment rights weren't violated. He is allowed to speak his mind and other are allowed to react to it. Freedom of speach doesn't mean you don't have to suffer the consequences of your actions (words). I can call my boss names, but freedom of speach doesn't mean he can't fire me for it.

    So were are all the comments about this owner having his first amendment rights violated? the silence from the far right is defining i guess it is only their own prejudiced comments that they think should be immune from consequence. i guess it is good to know there is at least some lines of social decency that even the far right thinks are not defensible.
