I’ll be the first to accept ur apology..as a man who’s made a mistake or two in life I know how hard it is to look at your self in the mirror when you let so many ppl down but for anybody who can’t and won’t accept his apology u need to look in the mirror because were not perfect..forgiveness will destroy racism not more hatred..
—Gilbert Arenas, on his Instagram account

Well, that’s one.

That is Gilbert Arenas posting on Instagram, accepting the apology of Donald Sterling, something the embattled Clippers owner said during an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN.

Forgiveness is one of the great gifts one person can give another, one we should all use more in our daily lives, and I would never tell someone not to forgive another, never tell someone how to feel about anything. My only question to Arenas would be: Do you feel Sterling’s apology was sincere?

Sterling also said in that interview that he believed that the Clippers players still loved him and were playing for him. At shootaround Tuesday the Clippers players tried to handle that diplomatically.

    Sterling didn’t make a “mistake”. He spoke his true feelings about blacks. He sees his players as property instead of fellow human beings who happen to be employed by him. Huge difference from merely saying something bad.

    An act of forgiveness really loses it’s value and meaning when you have to imply that by doing so you are somehow wiser or more self aware than others.

    You can choose to forgive, but don’t act like you’re better than us because of it.
