New Bout Of Racism

In all ways to slam the Republicans for racist commentary, or the Right-Wing in general, that won’t happen in this post. I have a slightly different person to go after, Donald Sterling, the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, over comments he made to his girlfriend about posting pictures with African American or Latin American men. What’s the critical and racist commentary for? For instilling racialist demagoguing? This is not the 1960s! Why anyone thinks it’s alright to degrade people because of their race or ethnicity is beyond my level of understanding.

While I hope the +Golden State Warriors do well in the playoffs and make it to the finals, I also feel for the +Los Angeles Clippers, as well. Like just about every other team in the +National Basketball Association, the heaviest proportion of the Clippers’ players are African American, and so the comments by Sterling make their play-off time that much more difficult as it provides them with an unneeded distraction.Besides being a distraction, it’s really goes beyond offensive. They’re insensitive and this is the worst representation of the NBA. I hope the NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and the commission board of the NBA will get to the bottom of what happened as soon as possible. There needs to be a message sent throughout the league that this type of language is not permissible.
