Many of us have now heard the racist thoughts and words of Billionaire NBA Clippers owner Donald Sterling. If you haven’t heard them, you can listen to the full dialogue between him and his ex-mistress here. In a nut shell, Sterling thinks and feels blacks are lessor then and that’s just the way the world is.
“It’s the world! You go to Israel, the blacks are just treated like dogs” he says at one point during their conversation. Keep in mind these things were said in private and not in a public forum. So what should happen to him as an NBA franchise owner employing a predominate staff of black men? Many are saying he should lose the team and be voted out. That’s how I emotional feel but it isn’t necessarily that black and white. Think about this, we say things in private conversation all the time that we would not say in public; so should you lose your job over it, if it ever became public?
Update: Donald Sterling has been banned for life by the NBA Commission and given a $2.5 million fine.
Tell us what you think.
