Obviously I'm generalizing based on the fact that only 1% of black people polled are voting for Donald Trump (I even used Trump-loving Breitbart as a source)... I doubt pro athletes poll any differently than the rest of the population.

I just think that in general... people involved with professional sports teams should keep their politics to themselves.
And you have the right to that opinion... But athletes are citizens too, and all citizens in this country have the right to express themselves, no matter what they do for a living. You don't have to like it, but you're gonna have to learn to live with it -- or quit supporting the product, your choice.

It not political affiliation that turns me off, it's when that viewpoint is shoved in my face.
How is it being "shoved in your face"?? Is there a big "I'm with her" sign at half court? Are there "vote Hillary" pins on the uniforms?? You have to seek out Mark Cuban's opinion, it isn't just popping up on the screen in the middle of a game.

Do what I did a long time ago -- stop listening to the man and just enjoy the game... Mark Cuban says way too much stupid sh!t to spend your time getting angry over.
