Elon Musk Unearths Shocking Clip Of Mark Cuban Amid Feud

Tech billionaire Elon Musk has uncovered a shocking clip of Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban admitting to being a “bigot” amid their ongoing feud on X, formerly known as Twitter, over the issue of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI).

In the latest escalation of the X feud, Musk uncovered a 2014 clip of Cuban declaring: “I know I’m prejudiced and I know I’m bigoted in a lot of different ways.”

“There’s a part of me that always takes into account race, gender and age… If I see a black kid in a hoodie and it’s late at night, I’m walking to the other side of the street. And if on that side of the street, there’s a guy that has tattoos all over his face — white guy, bald head, tattoos everywhere — I’m walking back to the other side of the street,” Cuban said during the clip, which was filmed during Inc. Magazine’s GrowCo conference in Nashville, Tennessee.

The feud began in the aftermath of the resignation of Harvard President Claudine Gay, who faced outrage over her refusal to condemn antisemitism on campus after the October 7 Hamas terrorist attacks in Israel and was then discovered to have repeatedly plagiarized her work throughout her career. Harvard initially refused to punish Gay for her actions, causing the school to lose more than one billion dollars in funding, but Gay ultimately ended up resigning amid intense backlash. Many on the far left have refused to acknowledge the plagiarism, instead claiming that Gay was the victim of racism.

After Gay’s resignation, conservatives and other anti-establishment individuals began arguing that she had only gotten and kept her position at Harvard because of DEI — prompting leftists to vehemently defend DEI initiatives across corporate America.

Musk began the discussion by responding to a post defending DEI from leftist commentator Ed Krassenstein.

“Discrimination on the basis of race, which DEI does, is literally the definition of racism,” Musk wrote.

Cuban responded to Musk’s post with a long, bizarre thread attempting to explain his support for DEI initiatives.

He first claimed that diversity means: “Good businesses look where others don’t, to find the employees that will put your business in the best possible position to succeed. You may not agree, but I take it as a given that there are people of various races, ethnicities, orientation, etc that are regularly excluded from hiring consideration.”

He went on to lie about the definition of “equity,” falsely equating it with the definition of equality, as many on the left do.

Cuban then claimed that “inclusion” was just about making employees “feel comfortable in their environment,” and concluded his post thread by comparing DEI to healthcare.

Cuban continued to argue with several conservative commentators about the matter, including some who pointed out that his basketball team did not employ DEI in its hiring practices, prompting Musk to point out that he was “desperately trying to signal his ‘virtue,’ but his hypocrisy convinces no one.”
