Mark Cuban ‘Prejudiced': 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

In 2008, Cuban made headlines after he refused to fire Josh Howard, a basketball player on his team who was caught on video saying he didn’t celebrate the “Star-Spangled Banner” because he is black. You can watch that video above.

Cuban, who received unspeakably racist and vile emails in response to his decision, decided to publish many of them on his blog, email addresses and all. The blog post has since been taken down, but the Dallas Observer quotes Cuban writing:

Wanted to thank all of you who took the time to email me with your comments on how best to deal with Josh. They were so good, I thought I would share a few of them with everyone. Including the email addresses of those who were bold enough to use real email addresses. Josh realizes his comments were wrong, he understands why people are upset. He knows he has made a mistake, has apologized and will work with us. Beyond that, it’s a private issue.
