Leftwing Bedwetter Outs Himself

Atlanta Hawks owner Bruce Levenson admitted to sending out a racist e-mail in 2012, and leftwing loons are stepping all over themselves in the latest Pavlovian PC stampede.

Only one problem... The e-mail was not racist. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who is becoming my favorite social commentator, explains:
I read Levenson’s email. Here’s what I concluded: Levenson is a businessman asking reasonable questions about how to put customers in seats.[...] Levenson wonders whether (according to his observations) the emphasis on hip-hop and gospel music and the fact that the cheerleaders are black, the bars are filled with 90% blacks, kiss cams focus on black fans and time-out contestants are always black has an effect on keeping away white fans.

Seems reasonable to ask those questions. If his arena was filled mostly with whites and he wanted to attract blacks, wouldn’t he be asking how they could de-emphasize white culture and bias toward white contestants and cheerleaders? Don’t you think every corporation in America that is trying to attract a more diverse customer base is discussing how to feature more blacks or Asians or Latinos in their TV ads? (Time - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar)
All I can add is, Amen!

I have two simple questions for you:

Do you think the e-mail was hateful or racist?

If so, which parts?

On a related note, when you compare TMZ and other US outlets’ superficial and sensational coverage to that of London’s Daily Mail (which I understand enjoys quasi-tabloid status... Someone from Britain can correct me if I’m wrong), American ignorance becomes more understandable.
