Bruce Levenson has said he is going to sell the Atlanta Hawks because he’s sent an e-mail that is racist during his tenure as the NBA team’s owner.

“My theory is that the black crowd scared away the whites and there are simply not enough affluent black fans to build a significant season ticket base,” Levenson said in the e-mail, according to TMZ. “I want some white cheerleaders … I have even bitched that the kiss cam is too black.”

He’s apologized for the comments. 

However, Killer Mike says the e-mail is not racist. He conveyed his thoughts on the matter with the following Twitter posts.

Earlier this year, Donald Sterling was banned from life from the NBA due to racist comments he made on the phone with his girlfriend.

UPDATE: Killer Mike has added to his commentary regarding Bruce Levenson’s comments about race, according to TMZ.

“It’s not remotely racist at all,” Mike says. “What I read was a business man trying to fill up his seats with the demographic that spends the most money.”

Mike also made a note of his own business and how he understands the need for diversity. 

“I own a barber shop,” he explains. “I make it a point for people to know I cut white people’s hair. If white people 30 to 55 aren’t coming to Hawks games, you have to do whatever you need to do to get them there.”
