    by Chris Vivlamore September 2014

    Hawks co-owner Bruce Levenson said he will sell his controlling interest in the franchise because of an "inappropriate and offensive" internal email sent two years ago regarding, in part, the lack of white fans at Philips Arena. Levenson made the abrupt announcement Sunday, months after he self-reported the email to the NBA in July and the team and league commenced an independent investigation into the matter. In an exclusive interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Sunday night, Hawks co-owner and CEO Steve Koonin said other disciplinary action will be taken, including against general manager Danny Ferry. Levenson sent the email to Ferry, with copies to co-owners Todd Foreman and Ed Peskowitz, on Aug. 25, 2012. In the email, Levenson wrote about the reasons for the poor attendance. "My theory is that the black crowd scared away the whites and there are simply not enough affluent black fans to build a signficant (sic) season ticket base," Levenson wrote.
