Mark Cuban: ‘We’re All Prejudiced in One Way or Another’

Mark Cuban: ‘We’re All Prejudiced in One Way or Another’

Michael Buckner/Getty Images for Reality Rocks(NEW YORK) -- Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is at it again.

Cuban spoke with INC.com about the recent racial comments made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling and said he believes everyone lives with some sort of prejudice.

"In this day and age, this country has really come a long way putting any type of bigotry behind us, regardless of who it's toward," Cuban said Wednesday. "We've come a long way, and with that progress comes a price. We're a lot more vigilant and we're a lot less tolerant of different views, and it's not necessarily easy for everybody to adapt or evolve."

"I mean, we're all prejudiced in one way or another. If I see a black kid in a hoodie and it's late at night, I'm walking to the other side of the street. And if on that side of the street, there's a guy that has tattoos all over his face -- white guy, bald head, tattoos everywhere -- I'm walking back to the other side of the street. And the list goes on of stereotypes that we all live up to and are fearful of. So in my businesses, I try not to be hypocritical. I know that I'm not perfect. I know that I live in a glass house, and it's not appropriate for me to throw stones," he continued.

Cuban said during the interview that he hopes there are people that can play an important role in limiting bigotry and prejudice.

"I'll try to give them a chance to improve themselves, because I think that helping people improve their lives, helping people engage with people they may fear or may not understand, and helping people realize that while we all may have our prejudices and bigotries we have to learn that it's an issue that we have to control, that it's part of my responsibility as an entrepreneur to try to solve it, not just to kick the problem down the road," he said. "Because it does my company no good, it does my customers no good, it does society no good if my response to somebody and their racism and bigotry is to say, 'It's not right for you to be here. Go take your attitude somewhere else.'"
