Richardson is racist

Micheal Ray Richardson current coach of the CBA’s Albany Patroons, has been suspended for the rest of the CBA championship series for comments made to the Albany Times Union on Tuesday. Richards is a former NBA all star and coke addict.

Richardson had this to say when discussing the contract general manager Jim Coyne had offered him Monday to coach his team in the CBA and USBL:

"I've got big-time lawyers, I've got big-time Jew lawyers."

When told by reporters that the comment could be offensive to people because it plays to the stereotype that Jews are crafty and shrewd, he responded with:

"Are you kidding me? They are. They've got the best security system in the world. Have you ever been to an airport in Tel Aviv? They're real crafty. Listen, they are hated all over the world, so they've got to be crafty. They got a lot of power in this world, you know what I mean? Which I think is great. I don't think there's nothing wrong with it. If you look in most professional sports, they're run by Jewish people. If you look at a lot of most successful corporations and stuff, more businesses, they're run by Jewish. It's not a knock, but they are some crafty people."

Shhhh…do you hear that? It's Marge Schott giving Richardson a standing ovation from the great beyond.
