Atlanta Hawks controlling owner Bruce Levenson has announced he will sell his share in the NBA team after "an email two years ago that was inappropriate and offensive." The email to Hawks general manager Danny Ferry bemoaned the high percentage of black cheerleaders and said that white fans may have been scared away by black fans. It's hardly the first instance of racism in the world of sports.
