Natasha Walker, Atlanta: “I think one of the wisest things to do is to let his players become free agents. That will allow players who feel disrespected and offended to leave and it gives other teams a chance to show that they do not tolerate that kind of talk.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Aja Marie Hall, Decatur: “I think what he does behind closed doors is his business, no matter what events he hosts, no matter what he does in his spare time. If he doesn’t like black people at his events, it’s no different than a teacher who hates kids…It all about the money…At least he’s giving black men a chance to be on his team…That’s what matters.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Troy Cann, Atlanta: “I think they should make him sell the team, because it all out there in the open. He’s not the only racist owner. You know it’s a business so they don’t have to like the people as long as they make him money. But now that it’s in the open, it’s going to be bad business.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Donny Stokes, Decatur: “He definitely shouldn’t be the owner anymore, that’s for sure. He crossed all lines when he made that statement about African Americans. I think that the whole situation is just out there with his girlfriend, but you’ve got to watch what you say these days.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Donny Willis, Decatur: “Well obviously they’ve got to force him out but there’s not a lot you can do to change hearts and minds. Everybody’s in an uproar but it’s not surprising to people in the minority. It’s not surprising." Photo by Vincent Christie.
