Sterling, Jordan and Obama

The media is ablaze with the comments allegedly made by Sterling in what seems to be a private conversation with his supposed girlfriend. What is almost certain is that there are no certainties in this gladitorium.

Before anyone gets into this argument,¬†ought it not to be established that these comments were in fact made in a private conversation? If that is the case, it begs the question as to why the conversations were recorded in the first place. Then it should be asked why they were released and by whom. And then the most glaring question, the one which ought to be of 1st importance to everyone … is what we say in private, if we have a reasonable expectation of privacy, ¬†something for which we can be legitimately prosecuted in either the kangaroo court of public opinion or the courts of the system?
