Please read the excerpt below quoted from NBA player Luol Deng.  No he's not responding to the Washington mascot issue, but the same reasons might apply...

"Every person should have the right to be treated with respect and evaluated as an individual, rather than be reduced to a stereotype. I am saddened and disappointed that this way of thinking still exists today. I am even more disturbed that it was shared so freely in a business setting.... 

However, there is comfort in knowing that there are people who aren't comfortable with it and have the courage to speak up. In the same way a generalization should not define a group of people, the attitude of a few should not define a whole organization or league."
Last night, an email surfaced containing Hawks minority owner Michael Gearon's concerns regarding GM Danny Ferry's remarks, specifically about Luol Deng, during a conference call. Though he didn't have to, Deng chose to address the comments made about him.
