(Undated) -- Mark Cuban is apologizing to Trayvon Martin's family for examples used in defending his self-described bigotry. The entrepreneur and Dallas Mavericks team owner took to Twitter Thursday to say he should have used different examples and didn't consider the Martin family when he said he would move to the other side of the street if he saw "a black kid in a hoodie." Martin's hoodie became a symbol for racial profiling after the teenager was gunned down by a neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida in 2012. His killer, George Zimmerman, said he felt threatened by the teenager. Zimmerman was eventually acquitted.
Cuban also said in his statement Thursday that he stood by the words and substance of his initial interview in which he described himself as prejudiced. He said his comments about crossing the street had everything to do with "whatever makes you feel threatened" and nothing to do with race. Cuban made his remarks during an interview at a conference in Nashville Wednesday.
