Mark Cuban has condemned human rights violations, but defended doing business with China, saying 'we have to pick our battles'. The billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner appeared on former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly's new podcast The Megyn Kelly Show for an hour-long episode that aired on Monday to discuss the NBA Finals, foreign business deals and the Black Lives Matter movement, among several other topics. At one point during the heated conversation, Kelly referenced the NBA's dealings with China, a market that is reportedly worth $4 billion to the league, and pointed out the country's controversial history of human rights violations.

Comments:

A buck's a buck. That's the answer you expect from a person who sees his home nation as nothing more than a market to exploit. And this joker sees himself as presidential material.

Cuban is correct. We pick our battles. We pick the nba as our battle front and we intend to destroy his bread and butter earnings. There is always shark tank for this cretin.

Cuban is the kind of guy who would sell out his grandmother if it meant another buck in his pocket. He is an exploiter of anyone or anything that will enhance his bank account. He has no loyalty to the country that enables him to create the kind of wealth most of can only dream of. He may have lots of. Only, but he is sorely lacking in respect. I do not respect anyone who can be bought by communist China especially after what they have done with this virus. China should be condemned by the world.

Funny, ain’t it? You make billions and award yourself one of the most exclusive luxuries there is, with all the perks to flaunt with you Uber wealthy compadres and acquaintances, let’s face it-people don’t find you insightful without the billions. But you don’t control the fruits of your capitalist success. The players union and black lives matter have to be consulted on how you operate your business. And black lives matter gets its marching orders from..., well let’s skip that. And the bulk of your revenue comes from corporate boxes and tv revenue, so ABC/ESPN/the telecom monopolies foreign and domestic that are pieces of news agencies that are parts of globalist conglomerates ....... And then there is Nike with factories in China paying next to nothing in labor marketing to the ABC and ESPN watchers to buy said overpriced shoes and shirts and telling us that paying millions to black athletes who can’t read is systemic racism. So no, Mr. Cuban, they are not the customer. You spent millions, your toy is worth billions and you are owned.

Let's consider China's human rights violations for a moment-- which, apparently for Cuban, have not reached the level where he has to "pick a battle." *China has locked millions of Uighurs in prison camps. They invaded Tibet and imprisoned and executed unknown numbers of Tibetans, who are prisoners in their own country. *Chinese citizens are surveilled constantly, especially in their internet use, and they are given numerical ratings indicating their acceptability to the Chinese Communist Party. If someone's score dips, that person simply disappears. *China ranks 100 among 144 countries for gender parity. Try demonstrating for women's rights in China. Let's see what happens to you. Ditto human rights. * Somewhere between 500,000 and a million Chinese are imprisoned without trial or access to legal representation. Re-education through labor (RTL) is one of the CCP's main methods of dealing with protestors and everyone else who might stir up any kind of trouble. If one is not "re-educated," the remedy is execution. China refuses to release execution statistics. *China is the foremost polluter of the environment, unchecked by the kinds of regulations imposed by the US, for instance. China has the second highest deaths from air pollution, behind India. This kind of list of Chinese travesties could go on almost indefinitely. To translate Mark Cuban's weasel words, "China is an abomination of cruelties, prejudices, and injustices. But, hey, they pay me big bucks, know m'sayin? Moolah, scratch, palm grease! It's the only thing that matters to me and my boys."

The US has a long history of doing business with despots. How about all that Saudi and Iranian oil we bought from the Princes and Shah over the years? And let's talk about the commodity deals with the Soviets. No, those we NOT different. The US has allowed itself to be sucked into the Human Rights as basis for foreign policy vortex since Carter in '76. That's the real "leftist" aspect. It doesn't allow for "Real Politik" relations but puts foreign policy at the mercy of causes, activists and propagandists.

Considering the kind of movies Hollywood insists on making and the usual negatives with a packed theater, who is going to go to movies for $20 a ticket? If that was a big chunk of cuban's portfolio, too bad. The NBA was losing appeal anyway with thugs like James doing what he does. Then they decided to lecture us. Will they come back? Why? After people can leave their homes, why watch black players play games that mean nothing to more and more people? Again, if that is a big part of cuban's fortune, its plunge in value could not happen to a more deserving creep.

New Jersey—A new study out Wednesday in New Jersey details why Black and Latino residents are two to three times more likely than white residents to get COVID-19, become hospitalized and die. The report calls for state action to address inequities that have resulted in more deaths in minority communities. "We are seeing this disproportionate impact across the state," said Dr. Brittany Holom, a senior policy analyst for New Jersey Policy Perspective. "This of course goes back to policies of segregating, whether it's segregated neighborhoods, segregated schools, access to nutritious food," said Holom.

On a night when the NBA broadcast its most important game, you would think that the league would own the night. That, once again, turned out to not be the case. The viewership numbers for the sixth and final game of the NBA Finals are in, and they are atrocious. Game 6 drew, at its peak, 6.028 million viewers. To put that in perspective, Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals, which included a team from Canada and did not include LeBron James, drew 18.34 million viewers. Those figures represent a 66 percent drop.(Snip) The heavy viewership losses are consistent with disastrous viewership numbers

WASHINGTON —  A group of prominent Christians from both sides of the aisle, including a past faith advisor to President Obama, is forming a political action committee designed to chip away at Christian support for President Trump in the final weeks of the 2020 campaign. The new super PAC, dubbed Not Our Faith, plans to roll out TV and digital ads focused on Christian voters — particularly the evangelical and Roman Catholic voters who helped Trump secure victory in 2016. Its first digital ad, set to run in the battleground states of Michigan and Pennsylvania, takes sharp aim at Trump’s claim to a foothold with Christians. Correction*
