This is another wasted opportunity that now becomes a slight against Mrs. Martin.

What Cuban should have also said is this.....

'When I made those remarks, I wasn't thinking of you.   I wasn't thinking of Trayvon.  If you're slighted, too bad.

Mr. and Mrs. Martin....if you yourselves were walking down a dark street and a black kid in a hoodie is walking toward you,  you'd cross the street too!   And if you said you wouldn't you're lying! 

Mr. Martin be pulling you be the arm!"



But he didn't.
